1. Change I/O Scheduler on CentOS

    To change the default scheduler from cfq to deadline simply edit /etc/grub.conf and add elevator=deadline to the kernel that is being used:

    $ nano -w /etc/grub.conf
    title CentOS (2.6.18-274.3.1.el5)
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-274.3.1.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ elevator=deadline
            initrd /initrd-2.6.18-274.3.1.el5.img

    This entry tells the 2.6.18-274.3.1.el5 kernel to use the Deadline scheduler. Make sure to reboot the system to activate the new scheduler.
