Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/5] vmstats for compaction, migration and autonuma
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 22nd October 2012 07:59:46 UTC (over 3 years ago)
I'm travelling for a conference at the moment so these patches are not
tested but with the ongoing NUMA migration work I figured it was best to
post these sooner rather than later.

This series adds vmstat counters and tracepoints for migration, compaction
and autonuma. Using them it's possible to create a basic cost model to
estimate the overhead due to compaction or autonuma. Using the stats it
is also possible to measure if a workload is converging on autonuma or
not and potentially measure how quickly it is converging.

Ideally the same stats would be available for schednuma but I did not
review the series when it was last posted in July and had not seen a
recent posting. I only recently heard they were in the -tip tree but will
not get the chance to look at them until I've finished travelling in a
weeks time.  If schednuma had similar stats it would then be possible to
compare schednuma and autonuma in terms of how quickly a workload converges
with either approach.
