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 don't think CFS is present in the kernel I am using.
