[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 16/18] GFS2: Pagecache usage optimization on GFS2



From: Hisashi Hifumi <hifumi hisashi oss ntt co jp>

I introduced "is_partially_uptodate" aops for GFS2.

A page can have multiple buffers and even if a page is not uptodate, some buffers
can be uptodate on pagesize != blocksize environment.
This aops checks that all buffers which correspond to a part of a file
that we want to read are uptodate. If so, we do not have to issue actual
read IO to HDD even if a page is not uptodate because the portion we
want to read are uptodate.
"block_is_partially_uptodate" function is already used by ext2/3/4.
With the following patch random read/write mixed workloads or random read after
random write workloads can be optimized and we can get performance improvement.

I did a performance test using the sysbench.

#sysbench --num-threads=16 --max-requests=200000 --test=fileio --file-num=1
--file-block-size=8K --file-total-size=2G --file-test-mode=rndrw --file-fsync-freq=0
--file-rw-ratio=1 run
