SubjectRe: [PATCH] range-bw: Another I/O scheduling policy of dm-ioband supporting the predicable I/O bandwidth (range bandwidth)

Thank you for your comments about range-bw
and your recommendation of seems to be useful for me.

I wonder your test configuration and environment.
Your result is some strange for me, because I didn't use the testing tool, fio.
I have used xdd, bonnie++ and tiobench during the test.

So, I will try to evaluate range-bw using fio, to do that, I need to
know your configuration and basic environment in briefly
if it don't bother you, can you give me the information?

and I attached the result of basic evaluation of range-bw using xdd
6.5.(Test Result for range-bw_english.pdf)
it was performed to evaluate the basic functionalities in one process per group.

actually, more evaluation is need in specfic envinronment like as
massive I/O by huge processes in each group.
and it is going on now
Best Regards,
Dong-Jae Kang
