Xen Developer Summit 2015 has ended
Tuesday, August 18 • 2:00pm - 2:50pm
Scheduling in Xen: Past, Present and Future - Dario Faggioli, Citrix & Meng Xu, University of Pennsylvania

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Xen-Project hypervisor provides a set of schedulers, each one suited for specific use cases. In this talk, we will discuss what they are, how  they work and what features they offer. The unmatched flexibility that Xen 4.5 offers when it comes to allocate physical processor to virtual processors will be showcased, and insights about the ongoing development
aimed at making the Credit2 scheduler ready for being used in production will be given.

We will also focus on the benefits (better average performance) and the drawbacks (less predictable behavior) of shared cache in multicore and multisocket systems. Proposals for hardware and software based approaches for partitioning the cache, and hence avoid the various virtual machine to interfere among each others, will be illustrated and discussed.
