|Subject:||XFS status update for April 2011|
|Date:||Wed, 4 May 2011 12:01:22 -0400|
April saw further stabilization work on the Linux 2.6.39 kernel, including a number of XFS bug fixes. Most importantly a series of patches fixes various OOM problems due to bad interactions between the generic writeback code and XFS inode reclaim, but there also were other patches for various smaller issues. In the meantime the XFS development tree saw the addition of the optimized busy extent tracking, which allows large speedups for multi-threaded meta data heavy workloads, and lays the groundwork for discard support on transaction commit, and a few other smaller patches. On the user space side the xfsprogs and xfsdump repositories saw a very quiet month with no applied patches, although a few were posted and discussed on the mailing list. The xfstests repository on the other hand saw a new test cases exercising the xfs_metadump functionally as well as a fixes to existing tests. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-fsdevel" in the body of a message to email@example.com More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
