Let’s resume our series of in-depth looks at the LPC 2014 Microconference lineup by discussing the Real Time microconference.
Ten years ago, many people asserted that it was not possible to achieve real-time latencies on a general-purpose OS such as Linux. This microconference will see some of OSADL’s long-term testing data that show just what Linux -rt is capable of. However, not everyone is content to run on bare metal, so there will be some discussions of the excellent progress that has been made getting real-time response from guest OSes. If you need more inspiration to improve your kernel regression tests, come listen to the progress towards using Linux for safety-critical applications.
This microconference will feature important discussions on other topics as well, including the new NO_HZ_FULL facility, scalability issues with reader-writer locks and mmap_sem, issues with various -rt trees, a readout from the invitation-only Real Time Mini-Summit, and Thomas’s views on the future of the -rt project. For more details, please see the LPC 2014 Wiki.
We hope to see you there!
