/* | |

* Global load-average calculations | |

* | |

* We take a distributed and async approach to calculating the global load-avg | |

* in order to minimize overhead. | |

* | |

* The global load average is an exponentially decaying average of nr_running + | |

* nr_uninterruptible. | |

* | |

* Once every LOAD_FREQ: | |

* | |

* nr_active = 0; | |

* for_each_possible_cpu(cpu) | |

* nr_active += cpu_of(cpu)->nr_running + cpu_of(cpu)->nr_uninterruptible; | |

* | |

* avenrun[n] = avenrun[0] * exp_n + nr_active * (1 - exp_n) | |

* | |

* Due to a number of reasons the above turns in the mess below: | |

* | |

* - for_each_possible_cpu() is prohibitively expensive on machines with | |

* serious number of cpus, therefore we need to take a distributed approach | |

* to calculating nr_active. | |

* | |

* \Sum_i x_i(t) = \Sum_i x_i(t) - x_i(t_0) | x_i(t_0) := 0 | |

* = \Sum_i { \Sum_j=1 x_i(t_j) - x_i(t_j-1) } | |

* | |

* So assuming nr_active := 0 when we start out -- true per definition, we | |

* can simply take per-cpu deltas and fold those into a global accumulate | |

* to obtain the same result. See calc_load_fold_active(). | |

* | |

* Furthermore, in order to avoid synchronizing all per-cpu delta folding | |

* across the machine, we assume 10 ticks is sufficient time for every | |

* cpu to have completed this task. | |

* | |

* This places an upper-bound on the IRQ-off latency of the machine. Then | |

* again, being late doesn't loose the delta, just wrecks the sample. | |

* | |

* - cpu_rq()->nr_uninterruptible isn't accurately tracked per-cpu because | |

* this would add another cross-cpu cacheline miss and atomic operation | |

* to the wakeup path. Instead we increment on whatever cpu the task ran | |

* when it went into uninterruptible state and decrement on whatever cpu | |

* did the wakeup. This means that only the sum of nr_uninterruptible over | |

* all cpus yields the correct result. | |

* | |

* This covers the NO_HZ=n code, for extra head-aches, see the comment below. | |

/* | |

* Handle NO_HZ for the global load-average. | |

* | |

* Since the above described distributed algorithm to compute the global | |

* load-average relies on per-cpu sampling from the tick, it is affected by | |

* NO_HZ. | |

* | |

* The basic idea is to fold the nr_active delta into a global idle-delta upon | |

* entering NO_HZ state such that we can include this as an 'extra' cpu delta | |

* when we read the global state. | |

* | |

* Obviously reality has to ruin such a delightfully simple scheme: | |

* | |

* - When we go NO_HZ idle during the window, we can negate our sample | |

* contribution, causing under-accounting. | |

* | |

* We avoid this by keeping two idle-delta counters and flipping them | |

* when the window starts, thus separating old and new NO_HZ load. | |

* | |

* The only trick is the slight shift in index flip for read vs write. | |

* | |

* 0s 5s 10s 15s | |

* +10 +10 +10 +10 | |

* |-|-----------|-|-----------|-|-----------|-| | |

* r:0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 | |

* w:0 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 | |

* | |

* This ensures we'll fold the old idle contribution in this window while | |

* accumlating the new one. | |

* | |

* - When we wake up from NO_HZ idle during the window, we push up our | |

* contribution, since we effectively move our sample point to a known | |

* busy state. | |

* | |

* This is solved by pushing the window forward, and thus skipping the | |

* sample, for this cpu (effectively using the idle-delta for this cpu which | |

* was in effect at the time the window opened). This also solves the issue | |

* of having to deal with a cpu having been in NOHZ idle for multiple | |

* LOAD_FREQ intervals. | |

* | |

* When making the ILB scale, we should try to pull this in as well. | |
