    If fiops number are better please explain why those numbers are better.
    If you cut down on idling, it is obivious that you will get higher
    throughput on these flash devices. CFQ does disable queue idling for
    non rotational NCQ devices. If higher throughput is due to driving
    deeper queue depths, then CFQ can do that too just by changing quantum
    and disabling idling.

    So I really don't understand that what are you doing fundamentally
    different in FIOPS ioscheduler.

    The only thing I can think of more accurate accounting per queue in
    terms of number of IOs instead of time. Which can just serve to improve
    fairness a bit for certain workloads. In practice, I think it might
    not matter much.

    Thanks
