FIOPS: A New Linux I/O Scheduler For Flash/SSDs
Phoronix: FIOPS: A New Linux I/O Scheduler For Flash/SSDs
Last week a new I/O scheduler was presented for the Linux kernel. This new scheduler, FIOPS, is designed around modern flash-based storage devices like solid-state drives...
Dynamically choosing the appropriate scheduler, out of the box?
I wonder how long (if ever) it will take for the kernel to implement hands-free selection of the best scheduler type (ie. if there are three rotating and one SSD, select CFS). Unfortunately, this is the kind of out-of-the-box optimization that, from previous experience, takes years for Linux distros to implement.
