Subject: [PATCH 21/22] mm, compaction: Be selective about what pageblocks to clear skip hints
Date: Fri, 18 Jan 2019 17:51:35 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190118175136.31341-22-mgorman@techsingularity.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190118175136.31341-1-mgorman@techsingularity.net>

Pageblock hints are cleared when compaction restarts or kswapd makes enough
progress that it can sleep but it's over-eager in that the bit is cleared
for migration sources with no LRU pages and migration targets with no free
pages. As pageblock skip hint flushes are relatively rare and out-of-band
with respect to kswapd, this patch makes a few more expensive checks to
see if it's appropriate to even clear the bit. Every pageblock that is
not cleared will avoid 512 pages being scanned unnecessarily on x86-64.

The impact is variable with different workloads showing small differences
in latency, success rates and scan rates. This is expected as clearing
the hints is not that common but doing a small amount of work out-of-band
to avoid a large amount of work in-band later is generally a good thing.
