Subject[RFC][PATCH] inotify 0.9
From
Date
Hello,

I am releasing a new version of inotify. Attached is a patch for
2.6.8.1.

I am interested in getting inotify included in the mm tree.

Inotify is designed as a replacement for dnotify. The key difference's
are that inotify does not require the file to be opened to watch it,
when you are watching something with inotify it can go away (if path
is unmounted) and you will be sent an event telling you it is gone and
events are delivered over a fd not by using signals.

New in this version:
Driver now supports reading more than one event at a time
Bump maximum number of watches per device from 64 to 8192
Bump maximum number of queued events per device from 64 to 256

--COMPLEXITY--

I have been asked what the complexity of inotify is. Inotify has
2 path codes where complexity could be an issue:

Adding a watcher to a device
This code has to check if the inode is already being watched
by the device, this is O(1) since the maximum number of
devices is limited to 8.


Removing a watch from a device
This code has to do a search of all watches on the device to
find the watch descriptor that is being asked to remove.
This involves a linear search, but should not really be an issue
because it is limited to 8192 entries. If this does turn in to
a concern, I would replace the list of watches on the device
with a sorted binary tree, so that the search could be done
very quickly.


The calls to inotify from the VFS code has a complexity of O(1) so
inotify does not affect the speed of VFS operations.

--MEMORY USAGE--

The inotify data structures are light weight:

inotify watch is 40 bytes
inotify device is 68 bytes
inotify event is 272 bytes

So assuming a device has 8192 watches, the structures are only going
to consume 320KB of memory. With a maximum number of 8 devices allowed
to exist at a time, this is still only 2.5 MB

Each device can also have 256 events queued at a time, which sums to
68KB per device. And only .5 MB if all devices are opened and have
a full event queue.

So approximately 3 MB of memory are used in the rare case of
everything open and full.

Each inotify watch pins the inode of a directory/file in memory,
the size of an inode is different per file system but lets assume
that it is 512 byes.

So assuming the maximum number of global watches are active, this would
pin down 32 MB of inodes in the inode cache. Again not a problem
on a modern system.

On smaller systems, the maximum watches / events could be lowered
to provide a smaller foot print.

Older release notes:
I am resubmitting inotify for comments and review. Inotify has
changed drastically from the earlier proposal that Al Viro did not
approve of. There is no longer any use of (device number, inode number)
pairs. Please give this version of inotify a fresh view.


Inotify is a character device that when opened offers 2 IOCTL's.
(It actually has 4 but the other 2 are used for debugging)

INOTIFY_WATCH:
Which takes a path and event mask and returns a unique
(to the instance of the driver) integer (wd [watcher descriptor]
from here on) that is a 1:1 mapping to the path passed.
What happens is inotify gets the inode (and ref's the inode)
for the path and adds a inotify_watcher structure to the inodes
list of watchers. If this instance of the driver is already
watching the path, the event mask will be updated and
the original wd will be returned.

INOTIFY_IGNORE:
Which takes an integer (that you got from INOTIFY_WATCH)
representing a wd that you are not interested in watching
anymore. This will:

send an IGNORE event to the device
remove the inotify_watcher structure from the device and
from the inode and unref the inode.


After you are watching 1 or more paths, you can read from the fd
and get events. The events are struct inotify_event. If you are
watching a directory and something happens to a file in the directory
the event will contain the filename (just the filename not the full
path).

Aside from the inotify character device driver.
The changes to the kernel are very minor.

The first change is adding calls to inotify_inode_queue_event and
inotify_dentry_parent_queue_event from the various vfs functions. This
is identical to dnotify.

The second change is more serious, it adds a call to
inotify_super_block_umount
inside generic_shutdown_superblock. What inotify_super_block_umount does
is:

find all of the inodes that are on the super block being shut down,
sends each watcher on each inode the UNMOUNT and IGNORED event
removes the watcher structures from each instance of the device driver
and each inode.
unref's the inode.

I have tested this code on my system for over three weeks now and have
not had problems. I would appreciate design review, code review and
testing.

John
