Re: [dm-devel] [Multipath] Round-robin performance limit



Lowering rr_min_io provides marginal improvement. I see 6MB/s
improvement at an rr_min_io of 3 vs 100. I played around with it
before all the way down to 1. People seems to settle on 3. Still, I am
not seeing the bandwidth I assume it should be (4 aggregated links).

Some additional information. If I attempt to pull from my two
multipath devices simultaneously (different LUNs, but same iSCSI
connections) then I can pull additional data (50MB/s vs 27-30MB/s
from each link).

This is a response to a direct email I sent to someone who had a
similar issue on this list a while back:

Hi Adam,

I believe setting rr_min_io to 3 in stead of 100 improved things
significantly.
What is still an unexplainable issue though is dd-ing to the multipath
device (very slow) while reading from it is very fast. Doing the same
piped over SSH to the original devices on the iSCSI server was OK, so it
seems like either an iSCSI or still a multipath issue.

But I definitely remember that lowering rr_min_io helped quite a bit.
I think the paths are switched faster in this way resulting into more speed.

Good luck,

b.
