Hmm, could I make a question ?

I think

- recent_rolated[LRU_FILE] is incremented when file cache is moved from
ACTIVE_FILE to INACTIVE_FILE.
- recent_scanned[LRU_FILE] is sum of scanning numbers on INACTIVE/ACTIVE list
of file.
- file caches are added to INACITVE_FILE, at first.
- get_scan_ratio() calculates %file to be

file recent rotated.
%file = IO_cost * ------------ / -------------
anon + file recent scanned.

But when "files are used by streaming or some touch once application",
there is no rotation because they are in INACTIVE FILE at first add_to_lru().
But recent_rotated will not increase while recent_scanned goes bigger and bigger.

Then %file goes to 0 rapidly.

Hmm?

Thanks,
-kame
