Re: IPC between tasks in kernel
Date: 10 Feb 2005 15:18:34 -0800
Please have a look at workqueues/taskqueues/waitqueues which will allow
u to manage synchronization problems and everything u could set up a
commom buffer between the the kernel threads/tasklets/tasks and use
waitquesues to signal availability of data
BTW semaphore are also available in the kernel which u can use for
syncing with shared buffers as mentioned earlier u dont need to
explicitly share buffers or data as all global data is visible to all
tasks in the kernel
- Re: RAID-1 performance under 2.4 and 2.6
... Modern applications which care about streaming I/O performance use large, aligned buffers which allow the kernel to efficiently optimize things, or they use direct I/O to do it themselves, or they make use of system calls like fadvise, madvise, splice, etc. that inform the kernel how they intend to use the data or pass the work off to the kernel completely. ... I'm less sure that large buffers are allocated on the stack, but often the behavior of the application models is the small buffered writes dd would do by default. ... And this is what I was saying earlier, there is a trend to blame the benchmark when in fact the same benchmark runs well on 2.4. ...
