SubjectRe: Disk priority dependend on nice level...
Hi!

It compiles, it event boots, but it does not seem to have much effect
:-(.

Test was like this:

bench:
#!/bin/bash
doit() {
echo Unloaded system:
time ./$1
echo No nice:
./$1 loadonly &
time ./$1
killall $1
killall bench_cat
echo Nice -19:
nice -n 19 ./$1 loadonly &
time ./$1
killall $1
killall bench_cat
}

doit diskload


diskload:
#!/bin/bash
if [ "a$1" == aloadonly ]; then
./bench_cat /usr/{bin,lib,lib/*}/* > /dev/null 2> /dev/null
exit
fi
umount /suse
mount /suse
./bench_cat /suse/usr/bin/* > /dev/null 2> /dev/null


bench_cat is copy of /bin/cat.
