bool "Periodic timer ticks (constant rate, no dynticks)"
help
This option keeps the tick running periodically at a constant
rate, even when the CPU doesn't need it.
config NO_HZ_IDLE
bool "Idle dynticks system (tickless idle)"
depends on !ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET && GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS
select NO_HZ_COMMON
help
This option enables a tickless idle system: timer interrupts
will only trigger on an as-needed basis when the system is idle.
This is usually interesting for energy saving.
Most of the time you want to say Y here.

help
Adaptively try to shutdown the tick whenever possible, even when
the CPU is running tasks. Typically this requires running a single
task on the CPU. Chances for running tickless are maximized when
the task mostly runs in userspace and has few kernel activity.
You need to fill up the nohz_full boot parameter with the
desired range of dynticks CPUs.
This is implemented at the expense of some overhead in user <-> kernel
transitions: syscalls, exceptions and interrupts. Even when it's
dynamically off.
Say N.

bool "Old Idle dynticks config"
depends on !ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET && GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS
help
This is the old config entry that enables dynticks idle.
We keep it around for a little while to enforce backward
compatibility with older config files.
config HIGH_RES_TIMERS
bool "High Resolution Timer Support"
depends on !ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET && GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS
select TICK_ONESHOT
help
This option enables high resolution timer support. If your
hardware is not capable then this option only increases
the size of the kernel image.
