[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 04/12] GFS2: Sort the ordered write list



From: Bob Peterson <rpeterso redhat com>

This patch sorts the ordered write list for GFS2 writes.
This increases the throughput for simultaneous writes.
For example, if you have ten processes, all doing:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/gfs2/fileX
on different files, the throughput will be much better.
