Thanks.Hi Guys,


I got the parameters with this script, although I also checked / sys, doing the math everything is right.

I understand.  Maybe I can put something together if you can provide some 
pointers since you are _the_ expert on bcache these days.  Here are a few 

Q's for Coly:

- It looks like it could be a simple change to bch_allocator_thread().  
  Is this the right place?
    - On alloc.c:332
    if (!fifo_pop(&ca->free_inc, bucket))
      does it just need to be modified to something like this:
    if (!fifo_pop(&ca->free_inc, bucket) || 
        total_unused_cache_percent() < 20)
      if so, where does bcache store the concept of "Total Unused Cache" ?

- If I'm going about it wrong above, then where is the code path in bcache 
  that frees a bucket such that it is completely unused (ie, as it was
  after `make-bcache -C`?)

Q's Adriano:

Where did you get these cache details from your earlier post?  In /sys 
somewhere, probably, but I didn't find them:

    Total Cache Size 553.31GiB
    Total Cache Used 547.78GiB (99%)
    Total Unused Cache 5.53GiB (1%)
    Dirty Data 0B (0%)
    Evictable Cache 503.52GiB (91%)
