11 years agopage allocator: replace __alloc_pages_internal() with __alloc_pages_nodemask()
Mel Gorman [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:31:52 +0000 (15:31 -0700)]
page allocator: replace __alloc_pages_internal() with __alloc_pages_nodemask()

The start of a large patch series to clean up and optimise the page
allocator.

The performance improvements are in a wide range depending on the exact
machine but the results I've seen so fair are approximately;

kernbench: 0 to  0.12% (elapsed time)
0.49% to  3.20% (sys time)
aim9: -4% to 30% (for page_test and brk_test)
tbench: -1% to  4%
hackbench: -2.5% to  3.45% (mostly within the noise though)
netperf-udp -1.34%  to  4.06% (varies between machines a bit)
netperf-tcp -0.44%  to  5.22% (varies between machines a bit)

I haven't sysbench figures at hand, but previously they were within the
-0.5% to 2% range.

On netperf, the client and server were bound to opposite number CPUs to
maximise the problems with cache line bouncing of the struct pages so I
expect different people to report different results for netperf depending
on their exact machine and how they ran the test (different machines, same
cpus client/server, shared cache but two threads client/server, different
socket client/server etc).

I also measured the vmlinux sizes for a single x86-based config with
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO enabled but not CONFIG_DEBUG_VM.  The core of the
.config is based on the Debian Lenny kernel config so I expect it to be
reasonably typical.

This patch:

__alloc_pages_internal is the core page allocator function but essentially
it is an alias of __alloc_pages_nodemask.  Naming a publicly available and
exported function "internal" is also a big ugly.  This patch renames
__alloc_pages_internal() to __alloc_pages_nodemask() and deletes the old
nodemask function.

Warning - This patch renames an exported symbol.  No kernel driver is
affected by external drivers calling __alloc_pages_internal() should
change the call to __alloc_pages_nodemask() without any alteration of
parameters.

cpuset,mm: update tasks' mems_allowed in time

Fix allocating page cache/slab object on the unallowed node when memory
spread is set by updating tasks' mems_allowed after its cpuset's mems is
changed.

In order to update tasks' mems_allowed in time, we must modify the code of
memory policy.  Because the memory policy is applied in the process's
context originally.  After applying this patch, one task directly
manipulates anothers mems_allowed, and we use alloc_lock in the
task_struct to protect mems_allowed and memory policy of the task.

But in the fast path, we didn't use lock to protect them, because adding a
lock may lead to performance regression.  But if we don't add a lock,the
task might see no nodes when changing cpuset's mems_allowed to some
non-overlapping set.  In order to avoid it, we set all new allowed nodes,
then clear newly disallowed ones.

[lee.schermerhorn@hp.com:
  The rework of mpol_new() to extract the adjusting of the node mask to
  apply cpuset and mpol flags "context" breaks set_mempolicy() and mbind()
  with MPOL_PREFERRED and a NULL nodemask--i.e., explicit local
  allocation.  Fix this by adding the check for MPOL_PREFERRED and empty
  node mask to mpol_new_mpolicy().

  Remove the now unneeded 'nodes = NULL' from mpol_new().

  Note that mpol_new_mempolicy() is always called with a non-NULL
  'nodes' parameter now that it has been removed from mpol_new().
  Therefore, we don't need to test nodes for NULL before testing it for
  'empty'.  However, just to be extra paranoid, add a VM_BUG_ON() to
  verify this assumption.]
[lee.schermerhorn@hp.com:

  I don't think the function name 'mpol_new_mempolicy' is descriptive
  enough to differentiate it from mpol_new().

  This function applies cpuset set context, usually constraining nodes
  to those allowed by the cpuset.  However, when the 'RELATIVE_NODES flag
  is set, it also translates the nodes.  So I settled on
  'mpol_set_nodemask()', because the comment block for mpol_new() mentions
  that we need to call this function to "set nodes".

readahead: enforce full sync mmap readahead size

Now that we do readahead for sequential mmap reads, here is a simple
evaluation of the impacts, and one further optimization.

It's an NFS-root debian desktop system, readahead size = 60 pages.
The numbers are grabbed after a fresh boot into console.

approach        pgmajfault      RA miss ratio   mmap IO count   avg IO size(pages)
   A            383             31.6%           383             11
   B            225             32.4%           390             11
   C            224             32.6%           307             13

case A: mmap sync/async readahead disabled
case B: mmap sync/async readahead enabled, with enforced full async readahead size
case C: mmap sync/async readahead enabled, with enforced full sync/async readahead size
or:
A = vanilla 2.6.30-rc1
B = A plus mmap readahead
C = B plus this patch

The numbers show that
- there are good possibilities for random mmap reads to trigger readahead
- 'pgmajfault' is reduced by 1/3, due to the _async_ nature of readahead
- case C can further reduce IO count by 1/4
- readahead miss ratios are not quite affected

The theory is
- readahead is _good_ for clustered random reads, and can perform
  _better_ than readaround because they could be _async_.
- async readahead size is guaranteed to be larger than readaround
  size, and they are _async_, hence will mostly behave better
However for B
- sync readahead size could be smaller than readaround size, hence may
  make things worse by produce more smaller IOs
which will be fixed by this patch.

Final conclusion:
- mmap readahead reduced major faults by 1/3 and no obvious overheads;
- mmap io can be further reduced by 1/4 with this patch.

11 years agoreadahead: introduce context readahead algorithm
Wu Fengguang [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:31:36 +0000 (15:31 -0700)]
readahead: introduce context readahead algorithm

Introduce page cache context based readahead algorithm.
This is to better support concurrent read streams in general.

RATIONALE
---------
The current readahead algorithm detects interleaved reads in a _passive_ way.
Given a sequence of interleaved streams 1,1001,2,1002,3,4,1003,5,1004,1005,6,...
By checking for (offset == prev_offset + 1), it will discover the sequentialness
between 3,4 and between 1004,1005, and start doing sequential readahead for the
individual streams since page 4 and page 1005.

The context readahead algorithm guarantees to discover the sequentialness no
matter how the streams are interleaved. For the above example, it will start
sequential readahead since page 2 and 1002.

The trick is to poke for page @offset-1 in the page cache when it has no other
clues on the sequentialness of request @offset: if the current requenst belongs
to a sequential stream, that stream must have accessed page @offset-1 recently,
and the page will still be cached now. So if page @offset-1 is there, we can
take request @offset as a sequential access.

BENEFICIARIES
-------------
- strictly interleaved reads  i.e. 1,1001,2,1002,3,1003,...
  the current readahead will take them as silly random reads;
  the context readahead will take them as two sequential streams.

- cooperative IO processes   i.e. NFS and SCST
  They create a thread pool, farming off (sequential) IO requests to different
  threads which will be performing interleaved IO.

  It was not easy(or possible) to reliably tell from file->f_ra all those
  cooperative processes working on the same sequential stream, since they will

  The nfsd does have code trying to restore the f_ra bits, but not satisfactory.

USER REPORT
-----------
Vladislav recommends the addition of context readahead as a result of his SCST
benchmarks. It leads to 6%~40% performance gains in various cases and achieves
equal performance in others.                http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/3/19/239

OVERHEADS
---------
In theory, it introduces one extra page cache lookup per random read.  However
the below benchmark shows context readahead to be slightly faster, wondering..

Randomly reading 200MB amount of data on a sparse file, repeat 20 times for
each block size. The average throughputs are:

readahead: enforce full readahead size on async mmap readahead

We need this in one particular case and two more general ones.

Now we do async readahead for sequential mmap reads, and do it with the
help of PG_readahead.  For normal reads, PG_readahead is the sufficient
condition to do a sequential readahead.  But unfortunately, for mmap
reads, there is a tiny nuisance:

[11736.998347] readahead-init0(process: sh/23926, file: sda1/w3m, offset=0:4503599627370495, ra=0+4-3) = 4

[11737.019488] readahead-around(process: w3m/23926, file: sda1/w3m, offset=0:0, ra=118+32-0) = 32
[11737.024921] readahead-interleaved(process: w3m/23926, file: sda1/w3m, offset=0:2, ra=4+6-6) = 6
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~                                                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An unfavorably small readahead.  The original dumb read-around size could
be more efficient.

That happened because ld-linux.so does a read(832) in L1 before mmap(),
which triggers a 4-page readahead, with the second page tagged
PG_readahead.

L0: open("/lib/libc.so.6", O_RDONLY)        = 3
L1: read(3, "\177ELF\2\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\3\0>\0\1\0\0\0\340\342"..., 832) = 832
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
L2: fstat(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=1420624, ...}) = 0
L3: mmap(NULL, 3527256, PROT_READ|PROT_EXEC, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_DENYWRITE, 3, 0) = 0x7fac6e51d000
L4: mprotect(0x7fac6e671000, 2097152, PROT_NONE) = 0
L5: mmap(0x7fac6e871000, 20480, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_FIXED|MAP_DENYWRITE, 3, 0x154000) = 0x7fac6e871000

L7: close(3)                                = 0

In general, the PG_readahead flag will also be hit in cases

- sequential reads

- clustered random reads

A full readahead size is desirable in both cases.

Wu Fengguang [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:31:28 +0000 (15:31 -0700)]
readahead: sequential mmap readahead

Auto-detect sequential mmap reads and do readahead for them.

The sequential mmap readahead will be triggered when
- sync readahead: it's a major fault and (prev_offset == offset-1);
- async readahead: minor fault on PG_readahead page with valid readahead state.

The benefits of doing readahead instead of read-around:
- less I/O wait thanks to async readahead
- double real I/O size and no more cache hits

The single stream case is improved a little.
For 100,000 sequential mmap reads:

                                    user       system    cpu        total
(1-1)  plain -mm, 128KB readaround: 3.224      2.554     48.40%     11.838
(1-2)  plain -mm, 256KB readaround: 3.170      2.392     46.20%     11.976
(2)  patched -mm, 128KB readahead:  3.117      2.448     47.33%     11.607

The patched (2) has smallest total time, since it has no cache hit overheads
and less I/O block time(thanks to async readahead). Here the I/O size
makes no much difference, since there's only one single stream.

Note that (1-1)'s real I/O size is 64KB and (1-2)'s real I/O size is 128KB,
since the half of the read-around pages will be readahead cache hits.

This is going to make _real_ differences for _concurrent_ IO streams.

11 years agoreadahead: remove sync/async readahead call dependency
Wu Fengguang [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:31:24 +0000 (15:31 -0700)]
readahead: remove sync/async readahead call dependency

The readahead call scheme is error-prone in that it expects the call sites
to check for async readahead after doing a sync one.  I.e.

if (!page)
page_cache_sync_readahead();
page = find_get_page();
if (page && PageReadahead(page))
page_cache_async_readahead();

This is because PG_readahead could be set by a sync readahead for the
_current_ newly faulted in page, and the readahead code simply expects one
more callback on the same page to start the async readahead.  If the
caller fails to do so, it will miss the PG_readahead bits and never able
to start an async readahead.

Eliminate this insane constraint by piggy-backing the async part into the
current readahead window.

Now if an async readahead should be started immediately after a sync one,
the readahead logic itself will do it.  So the following code becomes
valid: (the 'else' in particular)

if (!page)
page_cache_sync_readahead();
else if (PageReadahead(page))
page_cache_async_readahead();

Mike Frysinger [Sun, 14 Jun 2009 21:56:48 +0000 (22:56 +0100)]
ramfs: ignore unknown mount options

On systems where CONFIG_SHMEM is disabled, mounting tmpfs filesystems can
fail when tmpfs options are used.  This is because tmpfs creates a small
wrapper around ramfs which rejects unknown options, and ramfs itself only
supports a tiny subset of what tmpfs supports.  This makes it pretty hard
to use the same userspace systems across different configuration systems.
As such, ramfs should ignore the tmpfs options when tmpfs is merely a
wrapper around ramfs.

This used to work before commit c3b1b1cbf0 as previously, ramfs would
ignore all options.  But now, we get:
ramfs: bad mount option: size=10M
mount: mounting mdev on /dev failed: Invalid argument

Another option might be to restore the previous behavior, where ramfs
simply ignored all unknown mount options ... which is what Hugh prefers.

11 years agobonding: network device names are case sensative

bonding: network device names are case sensative

The bonding device acts unlike all other Linux network device functions
in that it ignores case of device names. The developer must have come
from windows!

Cleanup the management of names and use standard routines where possible.
Flag places where bonding device still doesn't work right with network
namespaces.

11 years agobonding: elminate bad refcount code

bonding: elminate bad refcount code

The "expected_refcount" stuff in bonding sysfs module is a mistake.
Sysfs does proper refcounting, and it is okay to remove a bond device
that has some user process holding the file open.

the module, since it can be called after module is unloaded if sysfs
