I tried another variant of test. This time I also created two additional
groups on ioband1 devices and linked these to cgroups test1 and test2 and
launched two dd threads in two cgroups on device ioband1. There also I
don't seem to be getting the right fairness numbers for cgroup test1 and
test2.

Script to create ioband devices and additional groups
-----------------------------------------------------
echo "0 $(blockdev --getsize /dev/sdd1) ioband /dev/sdd1 1 0 0 none"
"weight 0 :200" | dmsetup create ioband1
echo "0 $(blockdev --getsize /dev/sdd2) ioband /dev/sdd2 1 0 0 none"
"weight 0 :100" | dmsetup create ioband2

# Some code to mount and create cgroups.
# Read group id
test1_id=`cat /cgroup/ioband/test1/blkio.id`
test2_id=`cat /cgroup/ioband/test2/blkio.id`

test1_weight=200
test2_weight=100

dmsetup message ioband1 0 type cgroup 
dmsetup message ioband1 0 attach $test1_id
dmsetup message ioband1 0 attach $test2_id
dmsetup message ioband1 0 weight $test1_id:$test1_weight
dmsetup message ioband1 0 weight $test2_id:$test2_weight

mount /dev/mapper/ioband1 /mnt/sdd1
mount /dev/mapper/ioband2 /mnt/sdd2
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Following are two dd jobs
-------------------------
dd if=/mnt/sdd1/testzerofile1 of=/dev/null &
echo $! > /cgroup/ioband/test1/tasks

dd if=/mnt/sdd1/testzerofile2 of=/dev/null &
echo $! > /cgroup/ioband/test2/tasks


Following are "dmsetup status" results every 2 seconds

"dmsetup table" output
======================
ioband2: 0 40355280 ioband 8:50 1 4 192 none weight 768 :100
ioband1: 0 37768752 ioband 8:49 1 4 192 cgroup weight 768 :200 2:200 3:100

Because I am using "weight" policy, I thought that test1 cgroup with id
"2" will issue double the number of requests of cgroup test2 with id "3".
But that does not seem to be happening here. Is there an issue with my
testing method.

Thanks
Vivek
