ext3 2.4.21 htree tests


Just thought I'd share some test results of mine in case anyone is interested.

Basically the tests are siumulating what our product does with files - although the tests do it a lot quicker (not as many files though).

The test is to create 1 million files (each containing the text of the file number) spread over a number of directories. The files are then removed in the same manner as they are created. I added tests later to overwrite the existing files to see if there is any additional performance hit.

All results in seconds, in kernel order 2.4.20 (pre11), 2.4.21, 2.4.21 + dir_index

Files spread over 100 directories:

Create : 1764, N/A, 1078
Remove : 611, N/A, 1310

Ok so results are not that great - better to use more directories.

Files spread over 1000 directories:

Create: 409, 305, 284
Remove: 138, 96, 141

Create: 377, 312, 276
Overwrite: 317, 246, 268
Overwrite2: 321, 241, 265

I was interested in seeing if the htree patches would give me a performance increase - although I guess the sequential nature of the file creation/deletion probably will not benefit - although I was suprised that adding dir_index hit the overwrite and removal speed - probably based on this testing I won't use this feature (yet).
