Re: [dm-devel] kpartx mounted vmdk images and bad write performance



It would appear related to USB, although tests to local storage were
not that great. As a test I ran dd to create a file on the mounted
partiton on a USB2 attached disk as follows:

> kpartx -av /mnt/backup/FITZVICVDP01/FITZVICVDP01_2-flat.vmdk
add map loop0p1 (254:4): 0 536860169 linear /dev/loop0 1
> mount /dev/mapper/loop0p1 /mnt/loop0p1
> dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/loop0p1/zerofile.tst bs=1k count=1700000

In another terminal I monitored it's progress, it got to 763M and
simply stopped increasing.  dd was still running in the other
terminal.  You can see the date is 10 minutes since the last mod time.

> date
Monday 10 December  23:28:09 EST 2012
> ls -lh /mnt/loop0p1/zerofile.tst
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 763M Dec 10 23:18 /mnt/loop0p1/zerofile.tst

In dmesg these started being logged every 2 minutes.

I let dd continue to run and eventually it finished with abysmal
results (this is the output of the command at the top):

> dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/loop0p1/zerofile.tst bs=1k count=1700000
1700000+0 records in
1700000+0 records out

> ls -lh /mnt/loop0p1/zerofile.tst
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.7G Dec 10 23:41 /mnt/loop0p1/zerofile.tst

I had already copied the same vmdk to the local server file system and
repeated the tests.  No errors were logged to dmesg.

> kpartx -av /var/data/FITZVICVDP01_2-flat.vmdk

As a comparison...

Writing direct to the USB disk is about right for USB2.

> dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/backup/zerofile.tst bs=1k count=1700000
1700000+0 records in
1700000+0 records out

And to the servers disk - I should note that this is alot faster than
the test to the mounted vmdk on the servers disk above - not sure what
to make of that.

> dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/data/zerofile.tst bs=1k count=1700000
