Angry Disabling I/O schedulers


Hi,

Can anyone tell me how to disable I/O schedulers for Linux (kernel 2.6).
I'm working on a project which requires me to evaluate the performance of their scheduling algorithms.

I'm using Suse 10.3

I'm close to tears here

You can switch IO schedulers on the fly.

Perhaps reading this will help you understand more about them:
