Subject: [PATCH -mm -v9 2/3] mm, THP, swap: Check whether THP can be split firstly
Date: Wed, 19 Apr 2017 15:06:24 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20170419070625.19776-3-ying.huang@intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170419070625.19776-1-ying.huang@intel.com>

From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

To swap out THP (Transparent Huage Page), before splitting the THP,
the swap cluster will be allocated and the THP will be added into the
swap cache.  But it is possible that the THP cannot be split, so that
we must delete the THP from the swap cache and free the swap cluster.
To avoid that, in this patch, whether the THP can be split is checked
firstly.  The check can only be done racy, but it is good enough for
most cases.

With the patchset, the swap out throughput improves 3.6% (from about
4.16GB/s to about 4.31GB/s) in the vm-scalability swap-w-seq test case
with 8 processes.  The test is done on a Xeon E5 v3 system.  The swap
device used is a RAM simulated PMEM (persistent memory) device.  To
test the sequential swapping out, the test case creates 8 processes,
which sequentially allocate and write to the anonymous pages until the
RAM and part of the swap device is used up.
