2011-05-23ocfs2: clean up mount option about atime in ocfs2.txtTiger Yang1-1/+7
As ocfs2 supports relatime and strictatime, we need update the relative document. Atime_quantum need work with strictatime, so only show it in procfs when mount with strictatime. Signed-off-by: Tiger Yang <tiger.yang@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Joel Becker <jlbec@evilplan.org>

2010-10-11ocfs2: Add a mount option "coherency=*" to handle cluster coherency for ↵Tristan Ye1-0/+7
O_DIRECT writes. Currently, the default behavior of O_DIRECT writes was allowing concurrent writing among nodes to the same file, with no cluster coherency guaranteed (no EX lock held). This can leave stale data in the cache for buffered reads on other nodes. The new mount option introduce a chance to choose two different behaviors for O_DIRECT writes: * coherency=full, as the default value, will disallow concurrent O_DIRECT writes by taking EX locks. * coherency=buffered, allow concurrent O_DIRECT writes without EX lock among nodes, which gains high performance at risk of getting stale data on other nodes.

2010-05-05ocfs2: Add dir_resv_level mount optionMark Fasheh1-0/+4
The default behavior for directory reservations stays the same, but we add a mount option so people can tweak the size of directory reservations according to their workloads. Signed-off-by: Mark Fasheh <mfasheh@suse.com> Signed-off-by: Joel Becker <joel.becker@oracle.com>
2010-05-05ocfs2: change default reservation window sizesMark Fasheh1-1/+1
The default reservation size of 4 (32-bit windows) is a bit too ambitious. Scale it back to 16 bits (resv_level=2). I have been testing various sizes on a 4-node cluster which runs a mixed workload that is heavily threaded. With a 256MB local alloc, I get *roughly* the following levels of average file fragmentation: resv_level=0 70% resv_level=1 21% resv_level=2 23% resv_level=3 24% resv_level=4 60% resv_level=5 did not test resv_level=6 60% resv_level=2 seemed like a good compromise between not letting windows be too small, but not so big that heavier workloads will immediately suffer without tuning. This patch also change the behavior of directory reservations - they now track file reservations. The previous compromise of giving directory windows only 8 bits wound up fragmenting more at some window sizes because file allocations had smaller unused windows to poach from.

2010-05-05ocfs2: allocation reservationsMark Fasheh1-0/+3
This patch improves Ocfs2 allocation policy by allowing an inode to reserve a portion of the local alloc bitmap for itself. The reserved portion (allocation window) is advisory in that other allocation windows might steal it if the local alloc bitmap becomes full. Otherwise, the reservations are honored and guaranteed to be free. When the local alloc window is moved to a different portion of the bitmap, existing reservations are discarded. Reservation windows are represented internally by a red-black tree. Within that tree, each node represents the reservation window of one inode. An LRU of active reservations is also maintained. When new data is written, we allocate it from the inodes window. When all bits in a window are exhausted, we allocate a new one as close to the previous one as possible. Should we not find free space, an existing reservation is pulled off the LRU and cannibalized. Signed-off-by: Mark Fasheh <mfasheh@suse.com>

2008-10-13ocfs2: Add the 'inode64' mount option.Joel Becker1-0/+4
Now that ocfs2 limits inode numbers to 32bits, add a mount option to disable the limit. This parallels XFS. 64bit systems can handle the larger inode numbers.

2008-01-25[PATCH 2/2] ocfs2: cluster aware flock()Mark Fasheh1-0/+1

2008-01-25ocfs2: Local alloc window size changeable via mount optionSunil Mushran1-0/+3
Local alloc is a performance optimization in ocfs2 in which a node takes a window of bits from the global bitmap and then uses that for all small local allocations. This window size is fixed to 8MB currently. This patch allows users to specify the window size in MB including disabling it by passing in 0. If the number specified is too large, the fs will use the default value of 8MB. mount -o localalloc=X /dev/sdX /mntpoint Signed-off-by: Sunil Mushran <sunil.mushran@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Mark Fasheh <mark.fasheh@oracle.com>
2008-01-25ocfs2: Support commit= mount optionMark Fasheh1-0/+11
Mostly taken from ext3. This allows the user to set the jbd commit interval, in seconds. The default of 5 seconds stays the same, but now users can easily increase the commit interval. Typically, this would be increased in order to benefit performance at the expense of data-safety. Signed-off-by: Mark Fasheh <mark.fasheh@oracle.com>
