I am just trying to understand the basics of Linux scheduler.
- Is Linux scheduler a Cap based or weight based scheduler?
I was previously using Xen. Now I am moving from Xen to KVM. I read VMs are normal process and thus will follow the scheduling policies of the linux scheduler. I was previously using Xen's credit scheduler which had the capability to set cap/weight for vms. I am searching for equivalent capability and also basic understanding of the linux scheduler.
I am using Centos 5.6 . Which still uses 2.6.18. I dont think CFS is present in the kernel I am using.
