=head1 NAME

irqbalance -  distribute  hardware  interrupts across 
processors on a multiprocessor system


irqbalance [I<debug> | I<oneshot>]


irqbalance is a Linux daemon that distributes interrupts over the processors
and cores you have in your computer system. The design goal of irqbalance is to
do find a balance between power savings and optimal performance. To a large
degree, the work irqbalance does is invisible to you; if irqbalance performs
its job right, nobody will ever notice it's there or want to turn it off.

Bitmap of CPUs that are banned from IRQ balancing


Same as the oneshot option mentioned above.


Same as the debug option mentioned above.


Interrupt that don't get balanced as list (separation character doesn't
matter). For example broken chipsets don't allow the timer interrupt
to be set to another CPU than the first, and with this option that
policy can be applied.
