Linux Performance 2018

Tuesday 10:40AM-11:00AM

@ Room B4/B5

Open Source Databases



Developer, Operations

At over one thousand code commits per week, it's hard to keep up with Linux developments. This keynote will summarize recent Linux performance features, for a wide audience: the KPTI patches for Meltdown, eBPF for performance observability, Kyber for disk I/O scheduling, BBR for TCP congestion control, and more. This is about exposure: knowing what exists, so you can learn and use it later when needed. Get the most out of your systems, whether they are databases or application servers, with the latest Linux kernels and exciting features.
