Subject: [RFC PATCH v6 0/5] Online data deduplication
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.btrfs
Date: Thursday 8th August 2013 08:35:40 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Data deduplication is a specialized data compression technique for
eliminating
duplicate copies of repeating data.[1]

This patch set is also related to "Content based storage" in project
ideas[2].

PATCH 1 is a hang fix with deduplication on, but it's also useful without
dedup in practice use.

PATCH 2 and 3 are targetting delayed refs' scalability problems, which are
uncovered by the dedup feature.

PATCH 4 is a speed-up improvement, which is about dedup and quota.

PATCH 5 is full of real things, all details about implementation of dedup.

Plus, there is also a btrfs-progs patch which helps to enable/disable dedup
feature.

TODO:
* a bit-to-bit comparison callback.

All comments are welcome!

v5->v6:
- remove BUG_ON()s and use proper error handling.
- make dedup hash endian safe on disk.
- refractor dedup tree item.
- fix a bug of deleting file extents with dedup disabled.
- some cleanups
- add manpage for dedup subcommand.

v4->v5:
- go back to one dedup key with a special backref for dedup tree because
  the disk format understands backref well.
- fix a fsync hang with dedup enabled.
- rebase onto the latest btrfs.


Liu Bo (5):
  Btrfs: skip merge part for delayed data refs
  Btrfs: improve the delayed refs process in rm case
  Btrfs: introduce a head ref rbtree
  Btrfs: disable qgroups accounting when quata_enable is 0
  Btrfs: online data deduplication
