Subject: [PATCH 00/11] IO-less dirty throttling v12
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 3rd October 2011 13:42:28 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hi,

This is the minimal IO-less balance_dirty_pages() changes that are expected
to
be regression free (well, except for NFS).

        git://github.com/fengguang/linux.git
dirty-throttling-v12

Tests results will be posted in a separate email.

Changes since v11:

- improve bdi reserve area parameters (based on test results)
- drop bdi underrun flag
- drop aux bdi control line
- make bdi->dirty_ratelimit more stable

Changes since v10:

- complete the renames
- add protections for IO queue underrun
  - pause time reduction
  - bdi reserve area
  - bdi underrun flag
- more accurate task dirty accounting for
  - sub-page writes
  - FS re-dirties
  - short lived tasks

Changes since v9:

- a lot of renames and comment/changelog rework, again
- seperate out the dirty_ratelimit update policy (as patch 04)
- add think time compensation
- add 3 trace events

Changes since v8:

- a lot of renames and comment/changelog rework
- use 3rd order polynomial as the global control line (Peter)
- stabilize dirty_ratelimit by decreasing update step size on small errors
- limit per-CPU dirtied pages to avoid dirty pages run away on 1k+ tasks
(Peter)

Thanks a lot to Peter, Vivek, Andrea and Jan for the careful reviews!
