Fixed In Version: tuned-2.5.1-4.el7_2.5
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, the realtime tuned profile that is included in the tuned-profiles-realtime package set the value of the kernel.timer_migration variable to 1. As a consequence, realtime applications could be negatively affected. This update disables the timer migration in the realtime profile.
