SubjectDocumentation on CFQ iosched parameters
Date

Please CC to me unless you answer to linux-fsdevel as well. I am not
subscribed to linux-kernel.


Hi!

I am searching documentation about CFQ io scheduler. I can't find it in linux
2.6.26 Documentation directory.

I found about these in german[1]:

back_seek_max:16384
back_seek_penalty:2
fifo_expire_async:250
fifo_expire_sync:123
quantum:4

But I am completely missing about these:

slice_async:40
slice_async_rq:2
slice_idle:6
slice_sync:100

AFAIR there has been a documentation file somewhere, but I can't find it:

ms@mango> grep -ir "cfq" * ~/lokal/Kernel/linux-2.6.26/Documentation/block
00-INDEX: - Block io priorities (in CFQ scheduler)
ioprio.txt:With the introduction of cfq v3 (aka cfq-ts or time sliced cfq),
basic io
ioprio.txt:with cfq; other io schedulers do not support io priorities thus
far.
ioprio.txt:CFQ implements three generic scheduling classes that determine how
io is
switching-sched.txt:'noop', 'as' and 'cfq' (the default) are also available.
IO schedulers are
switching-sched.txt:for instance, to set the CFQ scheduler for the system
default, but
switching-sched.txt:noop anticipatory deadline [cfq]
switching-sched.txt:noop [anticipatory] deadline cfq

(unlike as-iosched.txt)

I am willing to write that documentation if someone explain these to me so
that I understand them ;-).
