CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL: Full dynticks system (tickless)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL:

Help text

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 to use it. This is implemented at the expense of some overhead in user <-> kernel transitions: syscalls, exceptions and interrupts.

By default, without passing the nohz_full parameter, this behaves just like NO_HZ_IDLE.

If you're a distro say Y.
