SubjectRe: Detecting page cache trashing state
From
Date
Hi Johannes,

Hopefully I was able to rebase the patch on top v4.9.26 (latest
supported version by us right now)
and test a bit.
The overall idea definitely looks promising, although I have one
question on usage.
Will it be able to account the time which processes spend on handling
major page faults
(including fs and iowait time) of refaulting page?

As we have one big application which code space occupies big amount of
place in page cache,
when the system under heavy memory usage will reclaim some of it, the
application will
start constantly thrashing. Since it code is placed on squashfs it
spends whole CPU time
decompressing the pages and seem memdelay counters are not detecting
this situation.
Here are some counters to indicate this:

19:02:44 CPU %user %nice %system %iowait %steal %idle
19:02:45 all 0.00 0.00 100.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

19:02:44 pgpgin/s pgpgout/s fault/s majflt/s pgfree/s pgscank/s
pgscand/s pgsteal/s %vmeff
19:02:45 15284.00 0.00 428.00 352.00 19990.00 0.00
0.00 15802.00 0.00

And as nobody actively allocating memory anymore looks like memdelay
counters are not
actively incremented:

[:~]$ cat /proc/memdelay
268035776
6.13 5.43 3.58
1.90 1.89 1.26

Just in case, I have attached the v4.9.26 rebased patched.

Also attached the patch with our current solution. In current
implementation it will mostly
fit to squashfs only thrashing situation as in general case iowait time
would be major part of
page fault handling thus it need to be accounted too.

Thanks,
Ruslan

Subject: [PATCH 2/2] mm/sched: memdelay: memory health interface for systems
and workloads

Linux doesn't have a useful metric to describe the memory health of a
system, a cgroup container, or individual tasks.

When workloads are bigger than available memory, they spend a certain
amount of their time inside page reclaim, waiting on thrashing cache,
and swapping in. This has impact on latency, and depending on the CPU
capacity in the system can also translate to a decrease in throughput.

While Linux exports some stats and counters for these events, it does
not quantify the true impact they have on throughput and latency. How
much of the execution time is spent unproductively? This is important
to know when sizing workloads to systems and containers. It also comes
in handy when evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of the
kernel's memory management policies and heuristics.

This patch implements a metric that quantifies memory pressure in a
unit that matters most to applications and does not rely on hardware
aspects to be meaningful: wallclock time lost while waiting on memory.

Whenever a task is blocked on refaults, swapins, or direct reclaim,
the time it spends is accounted on the task level and aggregated into
a domain state along with other tasks on the system and cgroup level.

Each task has a /proc/<pid>/memdelay file that lists the microseconds
the task has been delayed since it's been forked. That file can be
sampled periodically for recent delays, or before and after certain
operations to measure their memory-related latencies.

On the system and cgroup-level, there are /proc/memdelay and
memory.memdelay, respectively, and their format is as such:

$ cat /proc/memdelay
2489084
41.61 47.28 29.66
0.00 0.00 0.00

The first line shows the cumulative delay times of all tasks in the
domain - in this case, all tasks in the system cumulatively lost 2.49
seconds due to memory delays.

The second and third line show percentages spent in aggregate states
for the domain - system or cgroup - in a load average type format as
decaying averages over the last 1m, 5m, and 15m:

The second line indicates the share of wall-time the domain spends in
a state where SOME tasks are delayed by memory while others are still
productive (runnable or iowait). This indicates a latency problem for
individual tasks, but since the CPU/IO capacity is still used, adding
more memory might not necessarily improve the domain's throughput.

The third line indicates the share of wall-time the domain spends in a
state where ALL non-idle tasks are delayed by memory. In this state,
the domain is entirely unproductive due to a lack of memory.

v2:
- fix active-delay condition when only other runnables, no iowait
- drop private lock from sched path, we can use the rq lock
- fix refault vs. simple lockwait detection
- drop ktime, we can use cpu_clock()

XXX:
- eliminate redundant cgroup hierarchy walks in the scheduler

From d644440a4550cf2369c83a6ff6d700fad94e0dfa Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: Johannes Weiner <hannes@cmpxchg.org>
Date: Wed, 27 Sep 2017 19:28:49 +0300
Subject: [PATCH 1/2] mm: workingset: tell cache transitions from workingset
thrashing

Refaults happen during transitions between workingsets as well as
in-place thrashing. Knowing the difference between the two has a range
of applications, including measuring the impact of memory shortage on
the system performance, as well as the ability to smarter balance
pressure between the filesystem cache and the swap-backed workingset.

During workingset transitions, inactive cache refaults and pushes out
established active cache. When that active cache isn't stale, however,
and also ends up refaulting, that's bonafide thrashing.

Introduce a new page flag that tells on eviction whether the page has
been active or not in its lifetime. This bit is then stored in the
shadow entry, to classify refaults as transitioning or thrashing.

From f3c2b4fb2fa45eb9c087e8a60cefeb80cce50df1 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: Ruslan Ruslichenko <rruslich@cisco.com>
Date: Mon, 14 Aug 2017 12:07:30 +0300
Subject: [PATCH] /proc/stat: add major page faults time accounting

Add accounting of time spend by CPUs handling major
page faults (those which caused disk io).
This may be needed to detect system thrashing situation,
when the system has not enough memory for the working set
and have to constanly paging in/out pages from page cache
with no ability to do anything useful for the rest of the time.
