    Subjectbdflush flushing memory mapped pages.
    Date
    help

    My application uses SHARED memory mapping files for file I/O, and we have
    observed
    that Linux does not flush dirty pages to disk until munmap or msync are
    called.

    I would like to know are there any development plans which would address
    this issue or
    if there is a version of bdflush which flushes write required pages (dirty
    pages) to disk?

    Regards
    Keith Ansell.
