I recall a discussion some time ago about yield, the Completely F%’d Scheduler (CFS) and OpenMPI.
My system is currently suffering from massive CPU use while busy waiting. This gets worse as I try to bump up user concurrency.
I am running with yield_when_idle but its not enough. Is there anything else I can do to release some CPU resource?
I recall seeing one post where usleep(1) was inserted around the yields, is this still feasible?
I'm using 1.4.1 - is there a fix to be found in upgrading?
Unfortunately I am stuck with the CFS as I need Linux. Currently its Ubuntu 10.10 with 188.8.131.52
Thanks in advance
