config IOSCHED_NOOP
bool
default y
---help---
The no-op I/O scheduler is a minimal scheduler that does basic merging
and sorting. Its main uses include non-disk based block devices like
memory devices, and specialised software or hardware environments
that do their own scheduling and require only minimal assistance from
the kernel.
config IOSCHED_DEADLINE
tristate "Deadline I/O scheduler"
default y
---help---
The deadline I/O scheduler is simple and compact. It will provide
CSCAN service with FIFO expiration of requests, switching to
a new point in the service tree and doing a batch of IO from there
in case of expiry.
config IOSCHED_CFQ
tristate "CFQ I/O scheduler"
# If BLK_CGROUP is a module, CFQ has to be built as module.
depends on (BLK_CGROUP=m && m) || !BLK_CGROUP || BLK_CGROUP=y
default y
---help---
The CFQ I/O scheduler tries to distribute bandwidth equally
among all processes in the system. It should provide a fair
and low latency working environment, suitable for both desktop
and server systems.
This is the default I/O scheduler.
Note: If BLK_CGROUP=m, then CFQ can be built only as module.
config CFQ_GROUP_IOSCHED
bool "CFQ Group Scheduling support"
depends on IOSCHED_CFQ && BLK_CGROUP
default n
---help---
Enable group IO scheduling in CFQ.
config IOSCHED_VR
tristate "V(R) I/O scheduler"
default n
---help---
Requests are chosen according to SSTF with a penalty of rev_penalty
for switching head direction.
config IOSCHED_SIO
tristate "Simple I/O scheduler"
default y
---help---
The Simple I/O scheduler is an extremely simple scheduler,
based on noop and deadline, that relies on deadlines to
ensure fairness. The algorithm does not do any sorting but
basic merging, trying to keep a minimum overhead. It is aimed
mainly for aleatory access devices (eg: flash devices).
