* | cfq-iosched: Do not merge queues of BE and IDLE classesDivyesh Shah2010-03-251-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Even if they are found to be co-operating. The prio_trees do not have any IDLE cfqqs on them. cfq_close_cooperator() is called from cfq_select_queue() and cfq_completed_request(). The latter ensures that the close cooperator code does not get invoked if the current cfqq is of class IDLE but the former doesn't seem to have any such checks. So an IDLE cfqq may get merged with a BE cfqq from the same group which should be avoided.

* | cfq-iosched: Add additional blktrace log messages in CFQ for easier debuggingDivyesh Shah2010-03-251-3/+13
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | These have helped us debug some issues we've noticed in earlier IO controller versions and should be useful now as well. The extra logging covers: - idling behavior. Since there are so many conditions based on which we decide to idle or not, this patch adds a log message for some conditions that we've found useful. - workload slices and current prio and workload type Changelog from v1: o moved log message from cfq_set_active_queue() to __cfq_set_active_queue() o changed queue_count to st->count Signed-off-by: Divyesh Shah<dpshah@google.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

* | | cfq-iosched: fix a kbuild regressionShaohua Li2010-03-191-5/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Alex Shi reported a kbuild regression which is about 10% performance lost. He bisected to this commit: 3dde36ddea3e07dd025c4c1ba47edec91606fec0. The reason is cfqq_close() can't find close cooperator. Restoring cfq_rq_close()'s threshold to original value makes the regression go away. Since for_preempt parameter isn't used anymore, this patch deletes it.

* | cfq-iosched: quantum check tweakShaohua Li2010-03-011-4/+26
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently a queue can only dispatch up to 4 requests if there are other queues. This isn't optimal, device can handle more requests, for example, AHCI can handle 31 requests. I can understand the limit is for fairness, but we could do a tweak: if the queue still has a lot of slice left, sounds we could ignore the limit. Test shows this boost my workload (two thread randread of a SSD) from 78m/s to 100m/s. Thanks for suggestions from Corrado and Vivek for the patch.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Counters for requests "in flight" and "in driver" are used asymmetrically in cfq_may_dispatch, and have slightly different meaning. We split the rq_in_flight counter (was sync_flight) to count both sync and async requests, in order to use this one, which is more accurate in some corner cases. The rq_in_driver counter is coalesced, since individual sync/async counts are not used any more. Signed-off-by: Corrado Zoccolo <czoccolo@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | CFQ currently applies the same logic of detecting seeky queues and grouping them together for rotational disks as well as SSDs. For SSDs, the time to complete a request doesn't depend on the request location, but only on the size. This patch therefore changes the criterion to group queues by request size in case of SSDs, in order to achieve better fairness.

* | cfq-iosched: rework seeky detectionCorrado Zoccolo2010-02-281-40/+14
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Current seeky detection is based on average seek lenght. This is suboptimal, since the average will not distinguish between: * a process doing medium sized seeks * a process doing some sequential requests interleaved with larger seeks and even a medium seek can take lot of time, if the requested sector happens to be behind the disk head in the rotation (50% probability). Therefore, we change the seeky queue detection to work as follows: * each request can be classified as sequential if it is very close to the current head position, i.e. it is likely in the disk cache (disks usually read more data than requested, and put it in cache for subsequent reads). Otherwise, the request is classified as seeky. * an history window of the last 32 requests is kept, storing the classification result. * A queue is marked as seeky if more than 1/8 of the last 32 requests were seeky. This patch fixes a regression reported by Yanmin, on mmap 64k random reads.

I am reposting it with more test results. This patch does two things. - Do not idle on async queues. - It also changes the write queue depth CFQ drives (cfq_may_dispatch()). Currently, we seem to driving queue depth of 1 always for WRITES. This is true even if there is only one write queue in the system and all the logic of infinite queue depth in case of single busy queue as well as slowly increasing queue depth based on last delayed sync request does not seem to be kicking in at all. This patch will allow deeper WRITE queue depths (subjected to the other WRITE queue depth contstraints like cfq_quantum and last delayed sync request). Shaohua Li had reported getting more out of his SSD. For me, I have got one Lun exported from an HP EVA and when pure buffered writes are on, I can get more out of the system. Following are test results of pure buffered writes (with end_fsync=1) with vanilla and patched kernel. These results are average of 3 sets of run with increasing number of threads. AVERAGE[bufwfs][vanilla] ------- job Set NR ReadBW(KB/s) MaxClat(us) WriteBW(KB/s) MaxClat(us) --- --- -- ------------ ----------- ------------- ----------- bufwfs 3 1 0 0 95349 474141 bufwfs 3 2 0 0 100282 806926 bufwfs 3 4 0 0 109989 2.7301e+06 bufwfs 3 8 0 0 116642 3762231 bufwfs 3 16 0 0 118230 6902970 AVERAGE[bufwfs] [patched kernel] ------- bufwfs 3 1 0 0 270722 404352 bufwfs 3 2 0 0 206770 1.06552e+06 bufwfs 3 4 0 0 195277 1.62283e+06 bufwfs 3 8 0 0 260960 2.62979e+06 bufwfs 3 16 0 0 299260 1.70731e+06 I also ran buffered writes along with some sequential reads and some buffered reads going on in the system on a SATA disk because the potential risk could be that we should not be driving queue depth higher in presence of sync IO going to keep the max clat low. With some random and sequential reads going on in the system on one SATA disk I did not see any significant increase in max clat. So it looks like other WRITE queue depth control logic is doing its job. Here are the results.

* cfq-iosched: Remove prio_change logic for workload selectionVivek Goyal2009-12-181-36/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | o CFQ now internally divides cfq queues in therr workload categories. sync-idle, sync-noidle and async. Which workload to run depends primarily on rb_key offset across three service trees. Which is a combination of mulitiple things including what time queue got queued on the service tree. There is one exception though. That is if we switched the prio class, say we served some RT tasks and again started serving BE class, then with-in BE class we always started with sync-noidle workload irrespective of rb_key offset in service trees. This can provide better latencies for sync-noidle workload in the presence of RT tasks. o This patch gets rid of that exception and which workload to run with-in class always depends on lowest rb_key across service trees. The reason being that now we have multiple BE class groups and if we always switch to sync-noidle workload with-in group, we can potentially starve a sync-idle workload with-in group. Same is true for async workload which will be in root group. Also the workload-switching with-in group will become very unpredictable as it now depends whether some RT workload was running in the system or not.

* cfq-iosched: Remove the check for same cfq group from allow_mergeVivek Goyal2009-12-181-3/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | o allow_merge() already checks if submitting task is pointing to same cfqq as rq has been queued in. If everything is fine, we should not be having a task in one cgroup and having a pointer to cfqq in other cgroup. Well I guess in some situations it can happen and that is, when a random IO queue has been moved into root cgroup for group_isolation=0. In this case, tasks's cgroup/group is different from where actually cfqq is, but this is intentional and in this case merging should be allowed. The second situation is where due to close cooperator patches, multiple processes can be sharing a cfqq. If everything implemented right, we should not end up in a situation where tasks from different processes in different groups are sharing the same cfqq as we allow merging of cooperating queues only if they are in same group.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | Commit 86b37281411cf1e9bc0a6b5406c45edb7bd9ea5d adds a check for misaligned stacking offsets, but it's buggy since the defaults are 0. Hence all dm devices that pass in a non-zero starting offset will be marked as misaligned amd dm will complain.
