Subject description: Optimise Linux system performance on demand
 

https://github.com/FeralInteractive/gamemode

GameMode is a daemon/lib combo for Linux that allows games to request a set of optimisations be temporarily applied to the host OS.

GameMode was designed primarily as a stop-gap solution to problems with the Intel and AMD CPU powersave or ondemand governors, but is now host to a range of optimisation features and configurations.

Currently GameMode includes support for optimisations including:

CPU governor
I/O priority
Process niceness
Kernel scheduler (SCHED_ISO)
Screensaver inhibiting
GPU performance mode (NVIDIA and AMD), GPU overclocking (NVIDIA)
Custom scripts



The following games are known to integrate GameMode support (meaning they don't require any additional configuration to activate GameMode while running):

Rise of the Tomb Raider
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia
Total War: WARHAMMER II
DiRT 4
Total War: Three Kingdoms


For others, you must manually request GameMode when running the game. This can be done by launching the game through gamemoderun:

gamemoderun ./game


Depending on your OS, gamemode is available in your package manager (APT/PPM)
