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

I released bug-fixed range-bw(V1) controller several minutes ago

Although several WARNINGs of checkpatch are remained,
but patch file was strictly checked by checkpatch.pl
It was very time-consuming job :)
Thank you for your advice

after bug-fix,I evaluated range-bw according to your configuration and
test environment
the result is in new relesed range-bw mail, [PATCH 0/2]
and more detailed documentation is also available and it can be
referred in [PATCH 1/2]

Ryo,
can you check the result ?

if you are interested in range-bw, more information is available to you
and any questions and comments about range-bw is always welcom. :)

Ryo,
blkio-cgroup can be applied to dm-ioband ver1.10.3 without modification?
I didn't check blkio-cgroup yet.

Thank you
