Thumbs up Remarkable Performance Improvement (F17 Alpha)

Remarkable performance improvement (x86_64) today. I assume that this is due to rc6 of the 3.3 kernel having dropped a ton of debugging code.

Great job, devs. Very robust too, apart from a couple of dependency issues, which are worked around quite easily,

Well done, guys!

Re: Remarkable Performance Improvement (F17 Alpha)

wish I could say that here!

After the update to the rc6 kernel, I get tons of messages thrown to my log file. They did fix an error but now I get tons of other messages. 3 message per second for however long the system is running.

Over and over, I am seeing this in the log file

I think this is the offending item, but not certain how to fix it

Re: Remarkable Performance Improvement (F17 Alpha)

I'm now using kernel-3.3.0-0.rc6.git0.2.fc17.x86_64 and my CPU usage has now dropped and stabilised - it was all over the place in previous f17 kernels.

Re: Remarkable Performance Improvement (F17 Alpha)

the rc6 kernel might help my cpu usage if it wasn't constantly writing to the log file due to the errors above

Re: Remarkable Performance Improvement (F17 Alpha)

[phoenix@phoenix ~]$ uname -a
Linux phoenix.styx 3.3.1-3.fc17.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Apr 4 18:13:49 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I confirm F17 is faster than F16 here. Great job.
