Subject[PATCH 1/6] tracing, vmscan: Add trace events for kswapd wakeup, sleeping and direct reclaim
Date
This patch adds two trace events for kswapd waking up and going asleep for
the purposes of tracking kswapd activity and two trace events for direct
reclaim beginning and ending. The information can be used to work out how
much time a process or the system is spending on the reclamation of pages
and in the case of direct reclaim, how many pages were reclaimed for that
process. High frequency triggering of these events could point to memory
pressure problems.
