[PATCH Resend] epoll: add EPOLLEXCLUSIVE support

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

High performance server sometimes create one listening socket (e.g. port
80), create a epoll file descriptor and add the socket. Afterwards
create SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN threads and wait for events. This often
result in a thundering herd problem because all CPUs are scheduled.

This patch add an additional flag to epoll_ctl(2) called EPOLLEXCLUSIVE.
If a descriptor is added with this flag only one CPU is scheduled in.

Signed-off-by: Hagen Paul Pfeifer <hagen@xxxxxxxx>
Dave rejected the patch and said not network specific. Because there
is no epoll maintainer this time directly.
