[dm-devel] Re: [PATCH 0/2] dm-ioband: I/O bandwidth controller v1.7.0: Introduction



Hi, Ryo Tsuruta

I tested dm-ioband( the latest release, ver 1.7.0 ) IO controller, but
I had a strange result from it.
I have something wrong in test process?
The test process and results are in attached file.
Can you check my testing result and give me a helpful advices and comments?

As you can show in attached file, I tested 4 cases in dm-ioband with
tiobench() IO testing tool like as below
-	1) 3 cgroups with different weight in same ioband device(ioband1) :
Buffered IO
-	2) 3 cgroups with different weight in same ioband device(ioband1) : Direct IO
-	3) 3 cgroups with different weight in each ioband divice(ioband1, 2,
3) : Buffered IO
-	4) 3 cgroups with different weight in each ioband divice(ioband1, 2,
3) : Direct IO
But, IO bandwidth was not nearly controlled by dm-ioband

You can refer the testing tool, tiobench, in
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tiobench/
Originally, tiobench don't support the direct IO mode testing, so I
added the O_DIRECT option to tiobench source code and recompile it to
test the Direct IO cases

Thanks,
Dong-Jae, Kang
