Subject: Re: [REGRESSION] 5-10% increase in IO latencies with nohz balance patch
Date: Fri, 18 Feb 2022 12:00:41 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <f0ebbdfd-d14c-b497-07fb-54eb8d71ff38@leemhuis.info> (raw)

Hi, this is your Linux kernel regression tracker speaking. Top-posting
for once, to make this easy accessible to everyone.

FWIW, this is a gentle reminder that I'm still tracking this regression.
Afaics nothing happened in the last few weeks.

If the discussion continued somewhere else, please let me know; you can
do this directly or simply tell my regression tracking bot yourself by
sending a reply to this mail with a paragraph containing a regzbot
command like "#regzbot monitor
https://lore.kernel.org/r/some_msgi@example.com/"

If you think there are valid reasons to drop this regressions from the
tracking, let me know; you can do this directly or simply tell my
regression tracking bot yourself by sending a reply to this mail with a
paragraph containing a regzbot command like "#regzbot invalid: Some
explanation" (without the quotes).

Anyway: I'm putting it on back burner now to reduce the noise, as this
afaics is less important than other regressions:

#regzbot backburner: Culprit is hard to track down
#regzbot poke

You likely get two more mails like this after the next two merge
windows, then I'll drop it if I don't here anything back.

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)

P.S.: As the Linux kernel's regression tracker I'm getting a lot of
reports on my table. I can only look briefly into most of them and lack
knowledge about most of the areas they concern. I thus unfortunately
will sometimes get things wrong or miss something important. I hope
that's not the case here; if you think it is, don't hesitate to tell me
in a public reply, it's in everyone's interest to set the public record
straight.
