SubjectRe: The difference of request dir between AS and Deadline I/O scheduler?
Do you mean that the same process tends to have the same behavior of
I/O in the way of sycn?
Does this mean AS works better when requests are distincted by sync
mode (the success rate of anticipation is higher when requests are
grouped by the mode of sync)?
