[dm-devel] dm-band: The I/O bandwidth controller: Performance Report



Hi,

Now I report the result of dm-band bandwidth control test I did yesterday.
I've got really good results that dm-band works as I expected. I made
several band-groups on several disk partitions and gave them heavy I/O loads.

Hardware Spec.
==============
  DELL Dimention E521:

The results of bandwidth control test on partitions
===================================================

The configurations of the test #1:
   o Prepare three partitions sdb5, sdb6 and sdb7.
   o Give weights of 40, 20 and 10 to sdb5, sdb6 and sdb7 respectively.
   o Run 128 processes issuing random read/write direct I/O with 4KB data
     on each device at the same time.
   o Count up the number of I/Os and sectors which have done in 60 seconds.

                The result of the test #1

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------


The configurations of the test #2:
   o The configurations are the same as the test #1 except this test doesn't
     run any processes issuing I/Os on sdb6.

                The result of the test #2

The results of bandwidth control test on band-groups.
=====================================================
The configurations of the test #3:
   o Prepare three partitions sdb5 and sdb6.
   o Create two extra band-groups on sdb5, the first is of user1 and the
     second is of user2.
   o Give weights of 40, 20, 10 and 10 to the user1 band-group, the user2
     band-group, the default group of sdb5 and sdb6 respectively.
   o Run 128 processes issuing random read/write direct I/O with 4KB data
     on each device at the same time.
   o Count up the number of I/Os and sectors which have done in 60 seconds.

   o The configurations are the same as the test #3 except this test doesn't
     run any processes issuing I/Os on the user2 band-group.

Conclusions and future works
============================
Dm-band works well with random I/Os. I have a plan on running some tests
using various real applications such as databases or file servers.
If you have any other good idea to test dm-band, please let me know.

Thank you,
Ryo Tsuruta.
