This read-only sysctl reports the name of the active scheduler.
This read-write sysctl reports or sets the length of the quantum (in micro-seconds) granted to a thread.
This read-write sysctl sets whether or not the scheduler will generate an inter-processor interrupt (IPI) to an idle CPU when a thread is woken up. Otherwise, idle CPUs will wait until the next clock tick before looking for new work.
This read-only sysctl reports whether or not the kernel is configured to support preemption, which reduces the latency to run lower priority threads on wakeup.
Some sysctls will be available only on systems supporting SMP.
