At a given point of time, there are between two and eight pdflush threads running in the system.
With a ten-disk btrfs filesystem, per-BDI flushing performed 25% faster
Could a noticeable part of the 25% boost be attributed to a 25% boost in number of flushing threads? A 10-disk btrfs filesystem ought to be generating traffic on all 10 spindles, right?
