Subject[PATCH v4 5/6] fs/dcache: Track count of negative dentries forcibly killed
Date
There is performance concern about killing recently created negative
dentries. This should rarely happen under normal working condition. To
understand the extent of how often this negative dentry killing is
happening, the /proc/sys/fs/denty-state file is extended to track this
number. This allows us to see if additional measures will be needed
to reduce the chance of negative dentries killing.
