I'm currently building a kernel for my server, which should serve for hosting virtual machines using KVM. There are a few kernel configuration options that are already described in the KVM-Wiki. The article left out some points which I'm wondering about, specifically:
Should "Tickless System (Dynamic Ticks)" be set or not? It seems that Ingo Molnar apparently said that Dynamic Ticks would be helpful for a KVM host.
What Preemption Model should the kernel use?
What Timer Frequency value would you choose for a virtualization host kernel?
Thanks in advance.
