[lvm-devel] [PATCH 0/5] Fix some scaling problems for large VGs (many LVs)



This patches fixes some problems in code when processing large VGs.

An example: VG with one PVs and 2000LVs
(I was not able to test more LVs without patches, swapped to death...)

# vgs vg_test
  VG      #PV #LV  #SN Attr   VSize  VFree
  vg_test   1 2000   0 wz--n- 18.53g 10.71g

Before (intentionally do not run any in-kernel operations -t test mode):

# time vgchange -t -a n vg_test
  Test mode: Metadata will NOT be updated.
    0 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg_test" now active

    real    9m31.463s
    user    9m29.841s
    sys     0m1.251s

After (patches applied):
# time vgchange -t -a n vg_test
  Test mode: Metadata will NOT be updated.
   0 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg_test" now active

    real    1m22.852s
    user    1m14.805s
    sys     0m7.961s


Memory use (cca, it oscillates according to vg_release) 
before:
root     24664 99.9 17.9 355588 350340 pts/0   R+   14:43   9:34 vgchange -t -a n vg_test
after:
root     31022 98.5  0.2   7736   5084 pts/0   R+   14:57   1:21 vgchange -t -a n vg_test

...

Milan Broz (5):
  Use hash table for quick lv reference when reading metadata.
  Remove vg_validate call when parsing cached metadata.
  Optimise PV segments search.
  Do not traverse PV segment list twice.
  Fix all segments memory is allocated from vg private mempool.
