Subject: [RFC 0/2] 3 cacheline io_kiocb
Date: Sat, 25 Jul 2020 11:31:21 +0300
Message-ID: <> (raw)

That's not final for a several reasons, but good enough for discussion.
That brings io_kiocb down to 192B. I didn't try to benchmark it
properly, but quick nop test gave +5% throughput increase.
7531 vs 7910 KIOPS with fio/t/io_uring

The whole situation is obviously a bunch of tradeoffs. For instance,
instead of shrinking it, we can inline apoll to speed apoll path.

[2/2] just for a reference, I'm thinking about other ways to shrink it.
e.g. ->link_list can be a single-linked list with linked tiemouts
storing a back-reference. This can turn out to be better, because
that would move ->fixed_file_refs to the 2nd cacheline, so we won't
ever touch 3rd cacheline in the submission path.
Any other ideas?
