Subject: [PATCH 0/6] fuse: process direct IO asynchronously
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 10th December 2012 07:41:17 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Hi,

Existing fuse implementation always processes direct IO synchronously: it
submits next request to userspace fuse only when previous is completed.
This
is suboptimal because: 1) libaio DIO works in blocking way; 2) userspace
fuse
can't achieve parallelism  processing several requests simultaneously (e.g.
in case of distributed network storage); 3) userspace fuse can't merge
requests before passing it to actual storage.

The idea of the patch-set is to submit fuse requests in non-blocking way
(where it's possible) and either return -EIOCBQUEUED or wait for their
completion synchronously. The patch-set to be applied on top of for-next of
Miklos' git repo.

To estimate performance improvement I used slightly modified fusexmp over
tmpfs (clearing O_DIRECT bit from fi->flags in xmp_open). For synchronous
operations I used 'dd' like this:

dd of=/dev/null if=/fuse/mnt/file bs=2M count=256 iflag=direct
dd if=/dev/zero of=/fuse/mnt/file bs=2M count=256 oflag=direct conv=notrunc

For AIO I used 'aio-stress' like this:

aio-stress -s 512 -a 4 -b 1 -c 1 -O -o 1 /fuse/mnt/file
aio-stress -s 512 -a 4 -b 1 -c 1 -O -o 0 /fuse/mnt/file

The throughput on some commodity (rather feeble) server was (in MB/sec):

             original / patched

dd reads:    ~322     / ~382
dd writes:   ~277     / ~288

aio reads:   ~380     / ~459
aio writes:  ~319     / ~353

Thanks,
Maxim
