realtime linux - is it really deterministic

umesh's picture

we've had terrible experience in particular versions of linux (i'd rather not specify which here), where a 'cp' running on the background for a few GB causes another process running a write() on the same partition to wait 5-20 seconds!. move from CFQ to deadline changed the formula a bit (to about 1.5 seconds to 8 seconds)!. I'm talking 8GB, 2 cpu, 3 GHz, Xeons (HT) running SCSI, and just 2 user processes (1 cp + 1 write()). talk about real-time linux. This is repeatable on any similar config.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
