Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246649
Feature Request: RHEL 5.2: Backport the tickless idle feature
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:45 EST
Description of problem:
The tickless idle feature in the 2.6.21 kernel (as well as some of the related
enhancements) saves a lot of power on laptops (upto 25%) as well as on
servers. It's also very important for virtualization performance.
Having lower power usage and better virtualization performance is of high
importance for your customers and as such this would be a really good feature
Looks like an itchy mouse-clicking finger...
