Comment 8 Alasdair Kergon 2005-10-21 13:25:03 UTC
This feature request can be broken down into 4 items:
  1) Kernel changes for dm to use the existing kernel I/O stats mechanism;
  2) A new kernel dm module to gather sophisticated customised stats;
  3) Simple userspace tools changes to make it easy to use (2);
  4) Sophisticated userspace tools (and gui) changes to get the best out of (2).

I'm going to use this bugzilla to cover 1 and 2 ('kernel' component).

Someone might like to raise new ones to cover 3 and 4 (device-mapper / lvm2 /
lvm2 GUI components).



Comment 9 Alasdair Kergon 2005-10-21 13:27:34 UTC
The patch for (1) is simple - needs a review, but certainly feasible for U3.

The patch for (2) also exists but is more complex - not reviewed properly yet,
API needs more work, but might be possible to include it in some form in U3 if
there's time.

test cases for dm diskstat

Test cases for dm diskstat.
To complete this test, timing information collected by
BZ#173398 is also needed.
- Criteria for read_ticks, write_ticks, io_ticks may be
  too strict and sometimes cause false negative.
  Needs several trials to avoid it.
- There may be better/finer criterion for time_in_queue.
