Subject: [PATCH 3/9] xfs: expose sysfs knob to control inode inactivation delay
Date: Thu, 25 Mar 2021 17:22:05 -0700
Message-ID: <161671812555.622901.16473251954083643080.stgit@magnolia> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <161671810866.622901.16520335819131743716.stgit@magnolia>

From: Darrick J. Wong <djwong@kernel.org>

Allow administrators to control the length that we defer inode
inactivation.  By default we'll set the delay to 2 seconds, as an
arbitrary choice between allowing for some batching of a deltree
operation, and not letting too many inodes pile up in memory.

Signed-off-by: Darrick J. Wong <djwong@kernel.org>
