[dm-devel] Re: [PATCH] IO Controller: Add per-device weight and ioprio_class handling

Hi Gui,

Hi Vivek,

This patch enables per-cgroup per-device weight and ioprio_class handling.
A new cgroup interface "policy" is introduced. You can make use of this file to configure weight and ioprio_class for each device in a given cgroup.
The original "weight" and "ioprio_class" files are still available. If you
don't do special configuration for a particular device, "weight" and "ioprio_class" are used as default values in this device.

You can use the following format to play with the new interface.
#echo DEV:weight:ioprio_class > /patch/to/cgroup/policy
weight=0 means removing the policy for DEV.

Configure weight=300 ioprio_class=2 on /dev/hdb in this cgroup
# echo /dev/hdb:300:2 > io.policy
# cat io.policy
dev weight class
/dev/hdb 300 2

Users can specify a device file of a partition for io.policy.
In this case, io_policy_node::dev_name is set as a name of the
partition device like /dev/sda2.

 # cd /mnt/cgroup
 # cat /dev/sda2:500:2 > io.policy
 # echo io.policy
   dev weight class
   /dev/sda2 500 2

I believe io_policy_node::dev_name should be set a generic
device name like /dev/sda.
What do you think about it?
