Description Jiří Mencák 2021-02-04 11:09:00 UTC
Description of problem:
NTO in OCP 4.7 ships an old version of stalld.  There have been significant improvements to the "stall daemon" which tries to prevent the *starvation* of operating system threads in a Linux system.  The version currently shipped with NTO, for example, misses the RT throttling improvements and SIGTERM handling.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. check the stalld version in a Tuned container (stalld -V)

Actual results:

Expected results:
v1.7 + script-based (throttlectl.sh) RT throttling
