Some new kernel features are welcomed by the kernel development community,
while others are a rather harder sell. It is fair to say that core scheduling, which makes CPU scheduling
harder by placing constraints on which processes may run simultaneously in
a core, is of the latter variety. Core scheduling was the topic of (at
least) three different sessions at the 2019 Linux Plumbers Conference. One
of the most interesting outcomes, perhaps, is that there are use cases for
this feature beyond protection from side-channel attacks.

Since the AMD EPYC 7002 series “Rome” launch at the beginning of August, it’s been known how AMD’s top-end (aside from the newly-announced EPYC 7H12) EPYC 7742 easily outperforms the Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 in most real-world benchmarks. The EPYC 7742 not only outperforms the Xeon Platinum 8280 in raw performance but also at a significantly lower cost and it gets even better with the EPYC 7642. We have been testing the EPYC 7642 48-core processors and even there the performance is generally ahead of a Xeon Platinum 8280 while being about half the cost of that flagship non-AP Intel Xeon Scalable Cascadelake processor.
