sure, will do
I read that there isn't that much of more power consumption:
where others claim 10-20% more consumption:
now raw performance and efficiency counts (in terms of workflow) so I'll revert to tickless or more energy-friendly settings in 1-2 weeks ^^
well, that massively helped
pulseaudio now continually seems to stay at 1% cpu load instead of pegging around 100-300%
it could have been partly an issue caused by configuration but I believe it's partly also due to tickless:

it's still for 1-2 seconds stalling when it's heavily writing even though the dirty values are low as "1" - but that obviously might be caused by either luks/device-mapper or the filesystems and the other subsystems (VFS, writeback, etc.) involved
last kernel that - in my opinion - had really great writeback performance was 2.6.34, dunno
will stay on this kernel now ...

otherwise it would be RIFS + tickless vs. RIFS-ES-low-spec + NOHZ
and that wouldn't be fair
in my opinion RIFS was more consistent but less fluid whereas RIFS-ES-low-spec was more smooth but at times also less smooth
this could be a whole different story with tickless disabled
yeah, the differences are very subtle but under load RIFS-ES probably can really shine and show its strength
RIFS/-ES needs more testers and experiences to further improve and become even better
it's actually ridiculous how almost every app seemed to hog the cpu with NOHZ=y
(between 50-100% per app)
it might have been issues with the kernel over longer runtime - I'll see at the end of the time if it shows the same behavior or if it stays that calm with 0-1%

Now the last things is we have to make it into modular.(Very last things) After this RIFS/-ES will support CGroups.
RIFS/-ES have beaten BFS but now we have to promote it more. If Gentoo developer can help me to promote I will say a big THANKS.
I seldom run my computer for long time but now I will try. Do you play LOL?it might have been issues with the kernel over longer runtime - I'll see at the end of the time if it shows the same behavior or if it stays that calm with 0-1%
