glusterfs: Use gcc builtin ATOMIC operator to increase/decreate refcount.
Problem: In glusterfs code base we call mutex_lock/unlock to take reference/dereference for a object.Sometime it could be reason for lock contention also. Solution: There is no need to use mutex to increase/decrease ref counter, instead of using mutex use gcc builtin ATOMIC operation. Test: I have not observed yet how much performance gain after apply this patch specific to glusterfs but i have tested same with below small program(mutex and atomic both) and get good difference. static int numOuterLoops; static void * threadFunc(void *arg) { int j; for (j = 0; j < numOuterLoops; j++) { __atomic_add_fetch (&glob, 1,__ATOMIC_ACQ_REL); } return NULL; } int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { int opt, s, j; int numThreads; pthread_t *thread; int verbose; int64_t n = 0; if (argc < 2 ) { printf(" Please provide 2 args Num of threads && Outer Loop\n"); exit (-1); } numThreads = atoi(argv[1]); numOuterLoops = atoi (argv[2]); if (1) { printf("\tthreads: %d; outer loops: %d;\n", numThreads, numOuterLoops); } thread = calloc(numThreads, sizeof(pthread_t)); if (thread == NULL) { printf ("calloc error so exit\n"); exit (-1); } __atomic_store (&glob, &n, __ATOMIC_RELEASE); for (j = 0; j < numThreads; j++) { s = pthread_create(&thread[j], NULL, threadFunc, NULL); if (s != 0) { printf ("pthread_create failed so exit\n"); exit (-1); } } for (j = 0; j < numThreads; j++) { s = pthread_join(thread[j], NULL); if (s != 0) { printf ("pthread_join failed so exit\n"); exit (-1); } } printf("glob value is %ld\n",__atomic_load_n (&glob,__ATOMIC_RELAXED)); exit(0); } time ./thr_count 800 800000 threads: 800; outer loops: 800000; glob value is 640000000 real 1m10.288s user 0m57.269s sys 3m31.565s time ./thr_count_atomic 800 800000 threads: 800; outer loops: 800000; glob value is 640000000 real 0m20.313s user 1m20.558s sys 0m0.028 Change-Id: Ie5030a52ea264875e002e108dd4b207b15ab7cc7 Signed-off-by: Mohit Agrawal <moagrawa@redhat.com>
