.A new `optimize-serial-console` TuneD profile to reduce I/O to serial consoles by lowering the `printk` value With this update, a new `optimize-serial-console` TuneD profile is available. In some scenarios, kernel drivers can send large amounts of I/O operations to the serial console. Such behavior can cause temporary unresponsiveness while the I/O is written to the serial console. The `optimize-serial-console` profile reduces this I/O by lowering the `printk` value from the default of *7 4 1 7* to *4 4 1 7*. Users with a serial console who wish to make this change on their system can instrument their system as follows: ---- # tuned-adm profile throughput-performance optimize-serial-console ---- As a result, users will have a lower `printk` value that persists across a reboot, which reduces the likelihood of system hangs. This TuneD profile reduces the amount of I/O written to the serial console by removing debugging information. If you need to collect this debugging information, you should ensure this profile is not enabled and that your `printk` value is set to *7 4 1 7*. To check the value of `printk` run: ---- # cat /proc/sys/kernel/printk ----
