In the current implementation, should_check_rate() returns false if ddir_rw_sum(td->bytes_done)==0. Therefore, a thread may violate the rate if iodepth*bs > rate.

This patch addresses the issue by not checking td->bytes_done in should_check_rate.

An example of the issue:

[root@localhost test]# cat fio_randwrite
[global]
thread
kb_base=1000
direct=1
size=28GiB
group_reporting
io_size=16384
ioengine=libaio
iodepth=2
bs=4096
iodepth_batch_submit=1
iodepth_batch_complete=1
filename=/dev/qblkdev

[fio_randwrite]
rw=randwrite
rate_iops=,1
iodepth_batch_submit=1
thinktime_blocks=1
rate_cycle=1000
thinktime=3s
rate_ignore_thinktime=1

[root@localhost test]# fio fio_randwrite

Hi Makus,
My apology for sending to the wrong mail list. Please ignore this
email. I'll reformat it and send it to the fio maillist.
