Subject: [PATCH v5 8/8] btrfs: run delayed refs less often in commit_cowonly_roots
Date: Fri, 18 Dec 2020 14:24:26 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <b777e31c0b1dbdfb30597e27ff00608651f0aa83.1608319304.git.josef@toxicpanda.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1608319304.git.josef@toxicpanda.com>

We love running delayed refs in commit_cowonly_roots, but it is a bit
excessive.  I was seeing cases of running 3 or 4 refs a few times in a
row during this time.  Instead simply update all of the roots first,
then run delayed refs, then handle the empty block groups case, and then
if we have any more dirty roots do the whole thing again.  This allows
us to be much more efficient with our delayed ref running, as we can
batch a few more operations at once.
