SubjectRe: [PATCH] VM fixes + RSS limits 2.4.0-test13-pre5 / test13-pre7
Date
Hello Rik,

I did some more benchmarks on this --- puh, took me some time...:-)

Test machine: 256 MB, K7 550 SlotA, SCSI, IDE, ReiserFS 3.6.23, Blocksize=4K
Test: dbench 48

2.4.0-test13-pre5 + Rik's VM fix #2

Addition:
Your fix show some 'bad' swap behavior on my 'normal' load (3D medical
visualization). It do some 'little' swap out and in. Mostly the (not needed?)
swap in hurts performance. A little 'cp -a X11R6 X11R6-new' take more than 2
times longer. If my system hits the 'ZERO swap wall' the currently running
process (render) abort immediately and restart. With test13-pre7 it runs
several times longer (render generates some more frames) but then load goes
up to 10 and render would be killed.
