SubjectRe: swapping and the value of /proc/sys/vm/swappiness
Marcelo,

For what it is worth, here are the benchmark results for the kernel with the
patch I discussed before, along with the previous 2.6.9-rc1-mm3 results:

Kernel Version 2.6.9-rc1-mm3:
Total I/O Avg Swap min max pg cache min max
----------- --------- ------- ------ --------- ------- -------

20 267.02 MB/s 12624 MB ( 5578, 16287) 15298 MB ( 8468, 18889)
40 267.66 MB/s 13541 MB ( 6619, 17461) 16199 MB ( 9393, 20044)
60 233.73 MB/s 18094 MB ( 16550, 19676) 20629 MB ( 19103, 22192)
80 213.64 MB/s 20950 MB ( 15844, 22977) 23450 MB ( 18496, 25440)

Kernel Version 2.6.9-rc1-mm3-kdb-nrmap:

Except for the swappiness = 20 case, things are a smallish bit better for
the modified kernel than 2.6.9-rc1-mm3. Clearly we haven't found the root of
this problem yet.

Have you still been unable to duplicate this problem on a small i386 platform?

The box said: "Requires Windows 98 or better",
so I installed Linux.
