 What is the Completely Fair Scheduler?

Great description of the new scheduler.

"The Completely Fair Scheduler (CFS) has replaced the current O(1) Scheduler in the upcoming 2.6.23 kernel release. The CFS uses a far simpler scheduling algorithm, completely ignoring sleep time, interactive process identification, time slices, etc. Author Ingo Molnar describes the CFS as basically [modeling] an ideal, precise, multi-tasking CPU on real hardware. It took a bit of homework to figure out what the heck he was talking about, but it turns out that the concept is actually quite simple."
