Hi Dominik,

Hmm.. "blkio.weight" is used to control the Minimal Maximal Bandwidth. If you'd like
to control Max bandwidth to let your guests become I/O hungery. "blkio.throttle.*"
should helps. But these tunables aren't supported by blkiotune for the time being.
I'm considering to implement them in the future.

Thanks,
Gui
