+menu "IO Schedulers"
+ bool
+ default y
+ ---help---
+ The no-op I/O scheduler is a minimal scheduler that does basic merging
+ and sorting. Its main uses include non-disk based block devices like
+ memory devices, and specialised software or hardware environments
+ that do their own scheduling and require only minimal assistance from
+ the kernel.
+config IOSCHED_AS
+ tristate "Anticipatory I/O scheduler"
+ default y
+ ---help---
+ The anticipatory I/O scheduler is the default disk scheduler. It is
+ generally a good choice for most environments, but is quite large and
+ complex when compared to the deadline I/O scheduler, it can also be
+ slower in some cases especially some database loads.
+ tristate "Deadline I/O scheduler"
+ default y
+ ---help---
+ The deadline I/O scheduler is simple and compact, and is often as
+ good as the anticipatory I/O scheduler, and in some database
+ workloads, better. In the case of a single process performing I/O to
+ a disk at any one time, its behaviour is almost identical to the
+ anticipatory I/O scheduler and so is a good choice.
+ tristate "CFQ I/O scheduler"
+ default y
+ ---help---
+ The CFQ I/O scheduler tries to distribute bandwidth equally
+ among all processes in the system. It should provide a fair
+ working environment, suitable for desktop systems.
+ prompt "Default I/O scheduler"
+ default DEFAULT_AS
+ help
+ Select the I/O scheduler which will be used by default for all
+ block devices.
