From: Dave Chinner <dchinner(a)redhat.com> sync can currently take a really long time if a concurrent writer is extending a file. The problem is that the dirty pages on the address space grow in the same direction as write_cache_pages scans, so if the writer keeps ahead of writeback, the writeback will not termina... 25 May 2010 08:01
