1.93.  irqbalance

1.93.1.  RHBA-2009:1265: bug fix update

An updated irqbalance package that fixes various bugs is now available.
irqbalance is a daemon that evenly distributes IRQ load across multiple CPUs for enhanced performance.
This updated package addresses several minor bugs:
  • multiple instances of irqbalance could be started when changing between run levels. A universal exit is now run on existing instances so that only one will operate at a time. (BZ#471574)
  • several errors in set_interrupt_count and investigate interaction caused irqbalance to ignore IRQBALANCE_BANNED_INTERRUPTS. The two now work discretely and the problem no longer presents. (BZ#479459)
  • documentation has been improved in order to clarify the meaning and use of some of the configuration settings in irqbalance. (BZ#479856)
Users are advised to upgrade to this updated irqbalance package, which resolves these issues.
