2010-11-15blk-cgroup: Allow creation of hierarchical cgroupsVivek Goyal1-4/+0
o Allow hierarchical cgroup creation for blkio controller o Currently we disallow it as both the io controller policies (throttling as well as proportion bandwidth) do not support hierarhical accounting and control. But the flip side is that blkio controller can not be used with libvirt as libvirt creates a cgroup hierarchy deeper than 1 level. <top-level-cgroup-dir>/<controller>/libvirt/qemu/<virtual-machine-groups> o So this patch will allow creation of cgroup hierarhcy but at the backend everything will be treated as flat. So if somebody created a an hierarchy like as follows. root / \ test1 test2 | test3 CFQ and throttling will practically treat all groups at same level. pivot / | \ \ root test1 test2 test3 o Once we have actual support for hierarchical accounting and control then we can introduce another cgroup tunable file "blkio.use_hierarchy" which will be 0 by default but if user wants to enforce hierarhical control then it can be set to 1. This way there should not be any ABI problems down the line. o The only not so pretty part is introduction of extra file "use_hierarchy" down the line. Kame-san had mentioned that hierarhical accounting is expensive in memory controller hence they keep it off by default. I suspect same will be the case for IO controller also as for each IO completion we shall have to account IO through hierarchy up to the root. if yes, then it probably is not a very bad idea to introduce this extra file so that it will be used only when somebody needs it and some people might enable hierarchy only in part of the hierarchy. o This is how basically memory controller also uses "use_hierarhcy" and they also allowed creation of hierarchies when actual backend support was not available.

2010-10-01blkio: Recalculate the throttled bio dispatch time upon throttle limit changeVivek Goyal1-5/+10
o Currently any cgroup throttle limit changes are processed asynchronousy and the change does not take affect till a new bio is dispatched from same group. o It might happen that a user sets a redicuously low limit on throttling. Say 1 bytes per second on reads. In such cases simple operations like mount a disk can wait for a very long time. o Once bio is throttled, there is no easy way to come out of that wait even if user increases the read limit later. o This patch fixes it. Now if a user changes the cgroup limits, we recalculate the bio dispatch time according to new limits. o Can't take queueu lock under blkcg_lock, hence after the change I wake up the dispatch thread again which recalculates the time. So there are some variables being synchronized across two threads without lock and I had to make use of barriers. Hoping I have used barriers correctly. Any review of memory barrier code especially will help. Signed-off-by: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>

2010-04-26blk-cgroup: config options re-arrangementVivek Goyal1-2/+0
This patch fixes few usability and configurability issues. o All the cgroup based controller options are configurable from "Genral Setup/Control Group Support/" menu. blkio is the only exception. Hence make this option visible in above menu and make it configurable from there to bring it inline with rest of the cgroup based controllers. o Get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED. This option currently does two things. - Enable printing of cgroup paths in blktrace - Enables CONFIG_DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP, which in turn displays additional stat files in cgroup. If we are using group scheduling, blktrace data is of not really much use if cgroup information is not present. To get this data, currently one has to also enable CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED, which in turn brings the overhead of all the additional debug stat files which is not desired. Hence, this patch moves printing of cgroup paths under CONFIG_CFQ_GROUP_IOSCHED. This allows us to get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED completely. Now all the debug stat files are controlled only by CONFIG_DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP which can be enabled through config menu.

2010-04-26blkio: Fix another BUG_ON() crash due to cfqq movement across groupsVivek Goyal1-6/+9
o Once in a while, I was hitting a BUG_ON() in blkio code. empty_time was assuming that upon slice expiry, group can't be marked empty already (except forced dispatch). But this assumption is broken if cfqq can move (group_isolation=0) across groups after receiving a request. I think most likely in this case we got a request in a cfqq and accounted the rq in one group, later while adding the cfqq to tree, we moved the queue to a different group which was already marked empty and after dispatch from slice we found group already marked empty and raised alarm. This patch does not error out if group is already marked empty. This can introduce some empty_time stat error only in case of group_isolation=0. This is better than crashing. In case of group_isolation=1 we should still get same stats as before this patch. [ 222.308546] ------------[ cut here ]------------ [ 222.309311] kernel BUG at block/blk-cgroup.c:236!

2010-04-13io-controller: Add a new interface "weight_device" for IO-ControllerGui Jianfeng1-0/+236
Currently, IO Controller makes use of blkio.weight to assign weight for all devices. Here a new user interface "blkio.weight_device" is introduced to assign different weights for different devices. blkio.weight becomes the default value for devices which are not configured by "blkio.weight_device" You can use the following format to assigned specific weight for a given device: #echo "major:minor weight" > blkio.weight_device major:minor represents device number. And you can remove weight for a given device as following: #echo "major:minor 0" > blkio.weight_device V1->V2 changes: - use user interface "weight_device" instead of "policy" suggested by Vivek - rename some struct suggested by Vivek - rebase to 2.6-block "for-linus" branch - remove an useless list_empty check pointed out by Li Zefan - some trivial typo fix V2->V3 changes: - Move policy_*_node() functions up to get rid of forward declarations - rename related functions by adding prefix "blkio_" Signed-off-by: Gui Jianfeng <guijianfeng@cn.fujitsu.com> Acked-by: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2010-04-09blkio: Add more debug-only per-cgroup statsDivyesh Shah1-3/+156
1) group_wait_time - This is the amount of time the cgroup had to wait to get a timeslice for one of its queues from when it became busy, i.e., went from 0 to 1 request queued. This is different from the io_wait_time which is the cumulative total of the amount of time spent by each IO in that cgroup waiting in the scheduler queue. This stat is a great way to find out any jobs in the fleet that are being starved or waiting for longer than what is expected (due to an IO controller bug or any other issue). 2) empty_time - This is the amount of time a cgroup spends w/o any pending requests. This stat is useful when a job does not seem to be able to use its assigned disk share by helping check if that is happening due to an IO controller bug or because the job is not submitting enough IOs. 3) idle_time - This is the amount of time spent by the IO scheduler idling for a given cgroup in anticipation of a better request than the exising ones from other queues/cgroups. All these stats are recorded using start and stop events. When reading these stats, we do not add the delta between the current time and the last start time if we're between the start and stop events. We avoid doing this to make sure that these numbers are always monotonically increasing when read. Since we're using sched_clock() which may use the tsc as its source, it may induce some inconsistency (due to tsc resync across cpus) if we included the current delta.

This ability is useful when debugging problems in the wild as it helps understand the application's IO pattern w/o having to read through the userspace code (coz its tedious or just not available) or w/o the ability to run blktrace (since you may not have root access and/or not want to disturb performance).

This includes both the number of bios merged into requests belonging to this cgroup as well as the number of requests merged together. In the past, we've observed different merging behavior across upstream kernels, some by design some actual bugs. This stat helps a lot in debugging such problems when applications report decreased throughput with a new kernel version. This needed adding an extra elevator function to capture bios being merged as I did not want to pollute elevator code with blkiocg knowledge and hence needed the accounting invocation to come from CFQ.

This patch does not increment any of these stats. Signed-off-by: Divyesh Shah<dpshah@google.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo1-0/+1
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2009-12-04blkio: Implement dynamic io controlling policy registrationVivek Goyal1-4/+32
o One of the goals of block IO controller is that it should be able to support mulitple io control policies, some of which be operational at higher level in storage hierarchy. o To begin with, we had one io controlling policy implemented by CFQ, and I hard coded the CFQ functions called by blkio. This created issues when CFQ is compiled as module. o This patch implements a basic dynamic io controlling policy registration functionality in blkio. This is similar to elevator functionality where ioschedulers register the functions dynamically. o Now in future, when more IO controlling policies are implemented, these can dynakically register with block IO controller.
