RE: [dm-devel] [RFC PATCH 1/2] dm-mpath: interface change for preparation



Hi Kiyoshi/Alasdair,

Just a thought. As we are changing __choose_pgpath parameters in this patch, will it be good to use BIO rather than nr_bytes as parameter? Availability of BIO in loadbalancing interface can provide more flexibility for coming up with new load balancing in future.


Thanks,
Vijay

Subject: [dm-devel] [RFC PATCH 1/2] dm-mpath: interface change for preparation

This patch changes path selector interfaces for service-time oriented dynamic load balancer.

To calculate the service time for an incoming I/O correctly, the load balancer needs the size of the incoming I/O when selecting the next path.
