Can we conditionalize /usr/lib/systemd/system/ksmtuned.service?
Last modified: 2013-05-31 23:20:42 EDT
Currently, if qemu is installed it will unconditionally install ksmtuned.service and turn it on. Do we still need this? Doesn't the kernel do this automatically these days?
If this really shall stay, could we at least conditionalize it to run it only on the host, not in a VM? Please add ConditionVirtualization=no for that to the unit file.
Also see comments on:
(near the end).
Something similar applies to ksm.service of course.
Definitely true that ksmtuned.service needs ConditionVirtualization=no.
ksm.service in principle could be used on non-virt usecases too, but in the end it makes sense to add it there too.
I'll add ConditionVirtualization=no to ksm*.service
I'm also splitting KSM into its own subpackage, so it isn't pulled in for every qemu install. I don't think the average Fedora user gets much use from it, yet every few months for 3+ years I see a complaint like 'wtf is KSM and why is it using X% of my cpu?'
If people know what it is and want it, it's just a 'yum install ksm' away
