Subject: [PATCH 2/2] selftests: vm: add COW time test for KSM pages
Date: Sun, 1 Aug 2021 21:43:54 +0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <26a3cc3d02dc4fa65cc9b135be76e7d795c44877.1627828548.git.zhansayabagdaulet@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1627828548.git.zhansayabagdaulet@gmail.com>

Since merged pages are copied every time they need to be modified,
the write access time is different between shared and non-shared pages.
Add ksm_cow_time() function which evaluates latency of these COW
breaks. First, duplicated pages are merged and then the time required
to write to each of the pages is detected.

The test is run as follows: ./ksm_tests -C -p 5000
The output:
	Total COW time:      0.012612 s
	The number of pages: 5000
	Average speed:	     1623 MB/s
