CMOS CPUs are clocked much faster than thermal limits permit so they
+
must slow down as they heat up. This mode of operation was first used
+
in CMOS mainframes where a valid process will yield for IO. When
+
processes have yielded the CPU stops and cools down. This means that
+
the CPU can run much faster in bursts than it could in continuous
+
operation.

+
Linux has the ignore_nice_load feature which stops nice jobs breaking
+
power management that must now be regarded as essential. Linux does not
+
usually stop, but it does slow the CPU down. This cools the CPU and
+
allows it burst up to full speed when priority jobs become ready.
+
 
+
When you are running stuff like https://boinc.berkeley.edu/ you may not
+
want it to slow down your apps. Running it nice alone will not prevent
+
your apps from being slowed down. You need to give your CPU a chance to
+
cool down so that your apps can run faster.

Revision as of 10:42, 9 January 2014

The Unprofessional Delegates Networking Session (or UnPDNS) is the exciting event that gets run alongside the Professional Delegates Networking Session. It's for everyone who can't (or don't want to) go to the PDNS.

We took a break in 2013 when running the UnPDNS would have required us to wake up before 7am. Now that the PDNS is back in the evening, we're back for 2014. Woo.

  • When: Thursday night (when the PDNS is on).
  • Where: Site 5, Matilda Bay Reserve, right next to the University. See this map for info.
  • What: A BBQ (to be confirmed). Food will be $5, and we'll be selling various soft drinks. Alcohol is strictly BYO only; selling alcohol is in contravention of Western Australia liquor licensing laws.
