    Hi Vivek,

    I simply tested with blktrace opened. I create two groups and set ioprio
    4 and 7 respectively(the corresponding weight should 4:1, right?), and
    start two dd concurrently. UUIC, Ideally, the proportion of service two
    dd got should be 4:1 in a period of time when they are running. I extract
    *served* value from blktrace output and sum them up. I found the proportion
    of the sum of *served* value is about 1.7:1
    Am i missing something?

    I extract the following highlight value
    8,0 0 0 18.914906549 0 m N 6601ioq served=*0x13* total service=0x184d
