[dm-devel] Re: Regarding dm-ioband tests

I think this is probably the key deal breaker. dm-ioband has no
mechanism to anticipate or idle for a reader task. Without such a
mechanism, a proportional division scheme cannot work for tasks doing
reads.

That is a really big issue, since most reads tend to be synchronous
(the application is waiting for the read), while many writes are not
(the application is doing something else while the data is written).

Having writes take precedence over reads will really screw over the
readers, while not benefitting the writers all that much.
