PREEMPT-RT – More than just a kernel

Steven Rostedt (Software Engineer, Red Hat Inc.) / E-Mail:

Scheduled time:  Saturday, 10:00, Room V2

The Real Time Patch (also known as the -rt patch) enables the user with the PREEMPT_RT option for his kernel. This converts the Linux native kernel into a hard real-time designed kernel, that gives users sub 100 microsecond response times. This patch set has been critical for users of Jack for audio recording. It can even benefit hard core gamers. As with all real-time work, one can not just flip a switch and expect everything to just work. The kernel gives you the ability for quick reaction times, but the user must still understand how to tune it for best results.


Desired previous knowledge: Unix basics. How to compile and install their own Linux kernel.
