Low Latency Kernel and Software Development

Post by sagsaw »

Would generic or low latency kernel be the right choice for a typical Software Development Desktop or Laptop machine?

Typically a Java Web Developer would use an IDE, A Tomcat Server and a Database like Apache Derby in Network Server mode or My Sql or Postgres on his/her local machine

Similarly a modern Javascript Framework based Web Application developer would have an IDE a Database Node.js and a database server running. Maybe also have WebServer/Application server serving a REST API.

Low latency kernels are to solve a problem that doesn 't really exist anymore, I don't think devs are much interested now.

That isn't true. A low-latency kernel has major benefits for video and audio work.
Coming to a thread near you: Lots of bragging about my AMD 5950X. Currently delayed due to high demand.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

You don't need a low-latency kernel for development.

I would say, if you need to ask what a low-latency kernel is all about...it's probably not for you.

If anyone is interested in doing a deeper dive into the mechanics of running an audio/video production system under Linux, try asking my friends here:
