[PATCH 0/6] writeback: tracing and fixes V3.
This series contains the initial writeback tracing patches from Jens, as well as the extensions I added to provide visibility into writeback control structures as the are used by the writeback code. The visibility given is sufficient to understand what is happening in the writeback path - what path is writing data,... 3 Jun 2010 20:08
[PATCH 5/6] xfs: remove nr_to_write writeback windup.
From: Dave Chinner <dchinner(a)> Now that the background flush code has been fixed, we shouldn't need to silently multiply the wbc->nr_to_write to get good writeback. Remove that code.

[PATCH 3/6] writeback: Add tracing to write_cache_pages
Add a trace event to the ->writepage loop in write_cache_pages to give visibility into how the ->writepage call is changing variables within the writeback control structure. Of most interest is how wbc->nr_to_write changes from call to call, especially with filesystems that write multiple pages in ->writepage. S... 3 Jun 2010 20:08
[PATCH 6/6] writeback: limit write_cache_pages integrity scanning to current EOF
From: Dave Chinner <dchinner(a)> 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... 3 Jun 2010 20:08
