Re: [linux-lvm] Testing the new LVM cache feature



I have now set both read_promote_adjustment ==
write_promote_adjustment == 0 and used drop_caches between runs.

I also read Documentation/device-mapper/cache-policies.txt at Heinz's
suggestion.

I'm afraid the performance of the fio test is still not the same as
the SSD (4.8 times slower than the SSD-only test now).

Would repeated runs of (md5sum virt.* ; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches)
not eventually cause the whole file to be placed on the SSD?
It does seem very counter-intuitive if not.

Rich.
