menu "IO Schedulers"
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_AS
tristate "Anticipatory I/O scheduler"
default y
---help---
The anticipatory I/O scheduler is the default disk scheduler. It is
generally a good choice for most environments, but is quite large and
complex when compared to the deadline I/O scheduler, it can also be
slower in some cases especially some database loads.
config IOSCHED_DEADLINE
tristate "Deadline I/O scheduler"
default y
---help---
The deadline I/O scheduler is simple and compact, and is often as
good as the anticipatory I/O scheduler, and in some database
workloads, better. In the case of a single process performing I/O to
a disk at any one time, its behaviour is almost identical to the
anticipatory I/O scheduler and so is a good choice.
config IOSCHED_CFQ
tristate "CFQ I/O scheduler"
default y
---help---
The CFQ I/O scheduler tries to distribute bandwidth equally
among all processes in the system. It should provide a fair
working environment, suitable for desktop systems.
