[patch -rt 12/17] x86: sched: provide arch implementations using aperf/mperf

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



APERF/MPERF support for cpu_power.

APERF/MPERF is arch defined to be a relative scale of work capacity
per logical cpu, this is assumed to include SMT and Turbo mode.

APERF/MPERF are specified to both reset to 0 when either counter
wraps, which is highly inconvenient, since that'll give a blimp when
that happens. The manual specifies writing 0 to the counters after
each read, but that's 1) too expensive, and 2) destroys the
possibility of sharing these counters with other users, so we live
with the blimp - the other existing user does too.
