[PATCH] ext4/jbd2: drop jbd2_transaction_committed()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Zhang Yi <yi.zhang@xxxxxxxxxx>

jbd2_transaction_committed() is used to check whether a transaction with
the given tid has already committed, it hold j_state_lock in read mode
and check the tid of current running transaction and committing
transaction, but holding the j_state_lock is expensive.

We have already stored the sequence number of the most recently
committed transaction in journal t->j_commit_sequence, we could do this
check by comparing it with the given tid instead. If the given tid isn't
smaller than j_commit_sequence, we can ensure that the given transaction
has been committed. That way we could drop the expensive lock and
achieve about 10% ~ 20% performance gains in concurrent DIOs on may
virtual machine with 100G ramdisk.
