Thanks Alan. I am trying to parse the results below. s0 and s8 still mean
slice idle enabled disabled? Instead of that we can try group_isolation
enabled or disabled for all the tests.

I am assuming that base still means no io controller patches applied. Also
assuming that base must have run with slice_idle=8.

If yes, above is surprising. After applying the patches, performance
of random reads have become much better with slice_idle=8. May be you
ran the base with slice_idle=0 that's why results more or less match
with ioc patches applied with slice_idle=0.

If you ran base with slice_idle=0, then first and third columns match.
Can't conclude much about i1,s8 case. I am curious though why performance
dropped when number of writers reached 8.

Same as random write.

This is surprising again. if s0 means slice_idle=0, then in that case
performance should have sucked with N=8 as we should have been seeking
all over the place.

These are rates MB/s? I think we need to look at the disk time also because
we try to provide fairness in terms of disk time. In many a cases it
very closely maps to rates also but not always.

Is group_isolation enabled for these test cases. If not, these results are
surprising as I would expect all the random readers to be in root group
and then almost match base results.

But these seem to be very different from base results. So may be
group_isolation=1. If that's the case, then we do see service
differentiation but this does not seem too proportionate in terms of
weight.
Looking at disk.time and disk.dequeue file will help here.

Stopping parsing till I you get a chance to let me know some of the
parameters.

Thanks
Vivek
