Subject: [PATCH net 3/4] tcp: add tcp_tx_skb_cache sysctl
Date: Fri, 14 Jun 2019 16:22:20 -0700
Message-ID: <20190614232221.248392-4-edumazet@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190614232221.248392-1-edumazet@google.com>

Feng Tang reported a performance regression after introduction
of per TCP socket tx/rx caches, for TCP over loopback (netperf)

There is high chance the regression is caused by a change on
how well the 32 KB per-thread page (current->task_frag) can
be recycled, and lack of pcp caches for order-3 pages.

I could not reproduce the regression myself, cpus all being
spinning on the mm spinlocks for page allocs/freeing, regardless
of enabling or disabling the per tcp socket caches.

It seems best to disable the feature by default, and let
admins enabling it.

MM layer either needs to provide scalable order-3 pages
allocations, or could attempt a trylock on zone->lock if
the caller only attempts to get a high-order page and is
able to fallback to order-0 ones in case of pressure.

Tests run on a 56 cores host (112 hyper threads)
