RHEL 7 I/O scheduler policy change.

Share this link

The I/O scheduler policy has changed with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

The default I/O Scheduler is now CFQ for SATA drives and Deadline for everything else.
Indeed, for faster storage than SATA drives, Deadline outperforms CFQ, giving a performance increase without any special tuning.

Additional information and instructions are available in the I/O scheduler tutorial.
