2009-11-03cfq-iosched: limit coop preemptionShaohua Li1-2/+15
CFQ has an optimization for cooperated applications. if several io-context have close requests, they will get boost. But the optimization get abused. Considering thread a, b, which work on one file. a reads sectors s, s+2, s+4, ...; b reads sectors s+1, s+3, s +5, ... Both a and b are sequential read, so they can open idle window. a reads a sector s and goes to idle window and wakeup b. b reads sector s+1, since in current implementation, cfq_should_preempt() thinks a and b are cooperators, b will preempt a. b then reads sector s+1 and goes to idle window and wakeup a. for the same reason, a will preempt b and reads s+2. a and b will continue the circle. The circle will be very long, and a and b will occupy whole disk queue. Other applications will nearly have no chance to run. Fix this limiting coop preempt until a queue is scheduled normally again.

2009-10-08cfq-iosched: avoid probable slice overrun when idlingCorrado Zoccolo1-0/+9
If the average think time is larger than the remaining time slice for any given queue, don't allow it to idle. A succesful idle also means that we need to dispatch and complete a request, so if we don't even have time left for the idle process, we would overrun the slice in any case.

2009-10-06block: Seperate read and write statistics of in_flight requests v2Nikanth Karthikesan3-6/+8
Commit a9327cac440be4d8333bba975cbbf76045096275 added seperate read and write statistics of in_flight requests. And exported the number of read and write requests in progress seperately through sysfs. But Corrado Zoccolo <czoccolo@gmail.com> reported getting strange output from "iostat -kx 2". Global values for service time and utilization were garbage. For interval values, utilization was always 100%, and service time is higher than normal. So this was reverted by commit 0f78ab9899e9d6acb09d5465def618704255963b The problem was in part_round_stats_single(), I missed the following: if (now == part->stamp) return; - if (part->in_flight) { + if (part_in_flight(part)) { __part_stat_add(cpu, part, time_in_queue, part_in_flight(part) * (now - part->stamp)); __part_stat_add(cpu, part, io_ticks, (now - part->stamp)); With this chunk included, the reported regression gets fixed.

o Do not allow more than max_dispatch requests from an async queue, if some sync request has finished recently.

2009-10-02cfq-iosched: add a knob for desktop interactivenessJens Axboe1-1/+6
This is basically identical to what Vivek Goyal posted, but combined into one and labelled 'desktop' instead of 'fairness'. The goal is to continue to improve on the latency side of things as it relates to interactiveness, keeping the questionable bits under this sysfs tunable so it would be easy for throughput-only people to turn off. Apart from adding the interactive sysfs knob, it also adds the behavioural change of allowing slice idling even if the hardware does tagged command queuing.

2009-10-01block: allow large discard requestsChristoph Hellwig3-5/+21
Currently we set the bio size to the byte equivalent of the blocks to be trimmed when submitting the initial DISCARD ioctl. That means it is subject to the max_hw_sectors limitation of the HBA which is much lower than the size of a DISCARD request we can support. Add a separate max_discard_sectors tunable to limit the size for discard requests. We limit the max discard request size in bytes to 32bit as that is the limit for bio->bi_size. This could be much larger if we had a way to pass that information through the block layer. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2009-10-01block: use normal I/O path for discard requestsChristoph Hellwig3-24/+31
prepare_discard_fn() was being called in a place where memory allocation was effectively impossible. This makes it inappropriate for all but the most trivial translations of Linux's DISCARD operation to the block command set. Additionally adding a payload there makes the ownership of the bio backing unclear as it's now allocated by the device driver and not the submitter as usual. It is replaced with QUEUE_FLAG_DISCARD which is used to indicate whether the queue supports discard operations or not. blkdev_issue_discard now allocates a one-page, sector-length payload which is the right thing for the common ATA and SCSI implementations. The mtd implementation of prepare_discard_fn() is replaced with simply checking for the request being a discard. Largely based on a previous patch from Matthew Wilcox <matthew@wil.cx> which did the prepare_discard_fn but not the different payload allocation yet.

2009-09-14block: use blkdev_issue_discard in blk_ioctl_discardChristoph Hellwig2-59/+21
blk_ioctl_discard duplicates large amounts of code from blkdev_issue_discard, the only difference between the two is that blkdev_issue_discard needs to send a barrier discard request and blk_ioctl_discard a non-barrier one, and blk_ioctl_discard needs to wait on the request. To facilitates this add a flags argument to blkdev_issue_discard to control both aspects of the behaviour. This will be very useful later on for using the waiting funcitonality for other callers.

2009-09-14Seperate read and write statistics of in_flight requestsNikanth Karthikesan3-5/+7
Currently, there is a single in_flight counter measuring the number of requests in the request_queue. But some monitoring tools would like to know how many read requests and write requests are in progress. Split the current in_flight counter into two seperate counters for read and write. This information is exported as a sysfs attribute, as changing the currently available stat files would break the existing tools.

2009-09-11block: trace bio queueing trial only when it occursMinchan Kim1-2/+2
If BIO is discarded or cross over end of device, BIO queueing trial doesn't occur. Actually the trace was called just before make_request at first: [PATCH] Block queue IO tracing support (blktrace) as of 2006-03-23      2056a782f8e7e65fd4bfd027506b4ce1c5e9ccd4 And then 2 patches added some checks between them: [PATCH] md: check bio address after mapping through partitions        5ddfe9691c91a244e8d1be597b6428fcefd58103, [BLOCK] Don't allow empty barriers to be passed down to queues that don't grok them        51fd77bd9f512ab6cc9df0733ba1caaab89eb957 It breaks original goal. Let's trace it only when it happens.

2009-09-11cfq: fix the log message after dispatched a requestShan Wei1-1/+1
The blktrace tools can show process id when cfq dispatched a request, using cfq_log_cfqq() instead of cfq_log(). Signed-off-by: Shan Wei <shanwei@cn.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2009-09-11cfq-iosched: get rid of must_alloc flagJens Axboe1-5/+1
It's not currently used, as pointed out by Gui Jianfeng <guijianfeng@cn.fujitsu.com>. We already check the wait_request flag to allow an idling queue priority allocation access, so we don't need this extra flag. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2009-09-11block: use interrupts disabled version of raise_softirq_irqoff()Jens Axboe1-1/+1
We already have interrupts disabled at that point, so use the __raise_softirq_irqoff() variant. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

2009-09-11block: fix long lines in block/blk-iopoll.cJens Axboe1-12/+14
Note sure why they happened in the first place, probably some bad terminal setting. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2009-09-11block: add blk-iopoll, a NAPI like approach for block devicesJens Axboe2-1/+221
This borrows some code from NAPI and implements a polled completion mode for block devices. The idea is the same as NAPI - instead of doing the command completion when the irq occurs, schedule a dedicated softirq in the hopes that we will complete more IO when the iopoll handler is invoked. Devices have a budget of commands assigned, and will stay in polled mode as long as they continue to consume their budget from the iopoll softirq handler. If they do not, the device is set back to interrupt completion mode. This patch holds the core bits for blk-iopoll, device driver support sold separately.

2009-09-11block: improve queue_should_plug() by looking at IO depthsJens Axboe1-2/+9
Instead of just checking whether this device uses block layer tagging, we can improve the detection by looking at the maximum queue depth it has reached. If that crosses 4, then deem it a queuing device. This is important on high IOPS devices, since plugging hurts the performance there (it can be as much as 10-15% of the sys time).

2009-09-11bio: first step in sanitizing the bio->bi_rw flag testingJens Axboe3-14/+16
Get rid of any functions that test for these bits and make callers use bio_rw_flagged() directly. Then it is at least directly apparent what variable and flag they check. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
