Rust is about to release a new version of its scheduler, and there’s an interesting (and detailed) blog post about it that I thought some people here might be interested in, especially with all of the great work going on with Julia’s scheduler:
The blog post gives a general overview of the advantages and trade-offs of various approaches to creating schedulers, and then gives a brief history of Rust’s scheduler, before diving into a lot of details of the new scheduler.
Their testing framework (called
Loom) I found particularly interesting. It reminded me of a recent video on benchmarking that someone posted on Slack (and which was also excellent) (sorry, I forgot who posted it).
Anyway, it’s a really nice read for anyone interested in these sort of things.
(Interested parties have already seen (or written ) this, but for comparison, the blog post on the Julia scheduler is here
