Kernel configuration parameter - HZ

Latest response



Since kernel 2.6.13, the HZ value is a kernel configuration parameter. Can someone please help me, I am trying to find out how I can set HZ value on RHEL 6.


Thank you,


Hi Jagadeesh,
Does this kbase resolve your question? 

If not, you may need to provide some more information about the issue you're having.

Hi David,


Thanks for the doc link. But the kbase does not address the question for RHEL 6. 


Is the default HZ value for RHEL 6 also 1000? 

RHEL6 uses tickless kernel. So this may not be relevant. See below link.
