epoll: Adding the ability to configure epoll threads
Add the ability to configure the number of event threads for various gluster services. Currently with the multi thread epoll patch, it is possible to have more than one thread waiting on socket activity and processing the same. This thread count is currently static, which this commit makes dynamic. The current services which use IO path, i.e brick processes, any client process (nfs, FUSE, gfapi, heal, rebalance, etc.a), gain 2 set parameters to control the number of threads that are processing events. These settings are, - client.event-threads <n> - server.event-threads <n> The client setting affects the client graph consumers, and the server setting affects the brick processes. These are processed and inited/reconfigured using the client/server protocol xlators. Other services (say glusterd) would need to extend similar configuration settings to take advantage of multi threaded event processing. At present glusterd is not enabled with this commit, as it does not stand to gain from this multi-threading (as I understand it).
