Subject: [PATCH 20/22] mm, compaction: Sample pageblocks for free pages
Date: Fri, 18 Jan 2019 17:51:34 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190118175136.31341-21-mgorman@techsingularity.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190118175136.31341-1-mgorman@techsingularity.net>

Once fast searching finishes, there is a possibility that the linear
scanner is scanning full blocks found by the fast scanner earlier. This
patch uses an adaptive stride to sample pageblocks for free pages. The
more consecutive full pageblocks encountered, the larger the stride until
a pageblock with free pages is found. The scanners might meet slightly
sooner but it is an acceptable risk given that the search of the free
lists may still encounter the pages and adjust the cached PFN of the free
scanner accordingly.

                                     5.0.0-rc1              5.0.0-rc1

Amean     fault-both-32    18450.85 (   0.00%)    16892.00 (   8.45%)

The latency is mildly improved offseting some overhead from earlier
patches that are prerequisites for the rest of the series.  However,
a major impact is on the free scan rate with an 82% reduction.

                                5.0.0-rc1      5.0.0-rc1

Compaction free scanned       95336406            16668703

It's also the first time in the series where the number of pages scanned
by the migration scanner is greater than the free scanner due to the
increased search efficiency.
