thanks alot Mike for kind reply.
One more curiousity is how often a timer routine is called & how often scheduling code? It may be configurable interval as well, but then whats default value.
I guess timer is called more frequently & call to scheduling routine is made less frquently and is called from timer itself.
Can I get pointer to some reference where I will get to know how exactly this mechanism works. May be digging through code will be expensive option so I want to avoid it for a moment.

The credit scheduler sets up a timer when it is initialized. It does
process accounting during the timer service routine.
The decision to schedule the next vcpu is done on a different code
path, and is optimized to be as fast as possible.
