Subject: [PATCH 2/5] mm/vmscan: Throttle reclaim and compaction when too may pages are isolated
Date: Mon, 20 Sep 2021 09:54:33 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210920085436.20939-3-mgorman@techsingularity.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210920085436.20939-1-mgorman@techsingularity.net>

Page reclaim throttles on congestion if too many parallel reclaim instances
have isolated too many pages. This makes no sense, excessive parallelisation
has nothing to do with writeback or congestion.

This patch creates an additional workqueue to sleep on when too many
pages are isolated. The throttled tasks are woken when the number
of isolated pages is reduced or a timeout occurs. There may be
some false positive wakeups for GFP_NOIO/GFP_NOFS callers but
the tasks will throttle again if necessary.
