Subject: [PATCH 4/8] mm: Only drain per-cpu pagevecs once per pagevec usage
Date: Wed, 18 Oct 2017 08:59:48 +0100
Message-ID: <20171018075952.10627-5-mgorman@techsingularity.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20171018075952.10627-1-mgorman@techsingularity.net>

When a pagevec is initialised on the stack, it is generally used multiple
times over a range of pages, looking up entries and then releasing them.
On each pagevec_release, the per-cpu deferred LRU pagevecs are drained
on the grounds the page being released may be on those queues and the
pages may be cache hot. In many cases only the first drain is necessary
as it's unlikely that the range of pages being walked is racing against
LRU addition.  Even if there is such a race, the impact is marginal where
as constantly redraining the lru pagevecs costs.

This patch ensures that pagevec is only drained once in a given lifecycle
without increasing the cache footprint of the pagevec structure. Only
sparsetruncate tiny is shown here as large files have many exceptional
entries and calls pagecache_release less frequently.

sparsetruncate (tiny)

Best25%Amean Time      141.80 (   0.00%)      141.43 (   0.26%)

The impact on bonnie is marginal and within the noise because a significant
percentage of the file being truncated has been reclaimed and consists of
shadow entries which reduce the hotness of the pagevec_release path.
