[Cluster-devel] [GFS2 Patch] GFS2: speed up delete/unlink performance for large files



Hi,

This patch improves the performance of delete/unlink
operations in a GFS2 file system where the files are large
by adding a layer of metadata read-ahead for indirect blocks.
Mileage will vary, but on my system, deleting an 8.6G file
dropped from 22 seconds to about 4.5 seconds.

Regards,
