paper describing performance of glusterfs on ssds
Description of problem:
While working on bz 1629589,
* xavi pointed out io-cache could be the right place for current writes to update the already-read data (another one is read-ahead).
* me and xavi both found out default page-size of io-cache (128K) is too agressive and causes performance regression for random read workloads. This was also reported in the paper attached. The paper was pointed out by Shawn Houston from Red Hat. I assume the cache being referred in the paper refers to io-cache.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I am proposing to have 8k as the default page-size for io-cache.
