Re: [dm-devel] dm-cache warming


dm-cache is a hot-spot cache. Ie. you need multiple accesses to the same block to get it promoted into the cache (depending on the policy plugin btw).

If your patterns is one-time-only access type, it ain't warm the cache.

I've been trying to do some performance testing for a client and can't seem to get the dm-cache warmed. The values displayed in the "dmsetup status" command seem too low. I've been trying to use the "raw" devices setup for the cache and NOT use a file system or database. I've tried sequential writes/reads to the devices (ie. dd ) and dividing up the space to be tested and do I/O over a number of segments to try to break any sequential I/O tests. Any ideas as to what I may doing wrong? Do I need to randomize the I/O?

Thanks in advance..
