* Remove need for /proc on FreeBSDDaniel Morante2020-08-201-0/+9

* Posix: Optimize posix code to improve file creationMohit Agrawal2020-04-061-0/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Problem: Before executing a fop in POSIX xlator it builds an internal path based on GFID.To validate the path it call's (l)stat system call and while .glusterfs is heavily loaded kernel takes time to lookup inode and due to that performance drops Solution: In this patch we followed two ways to improve the performance. 1) Keep open fd specific to first level directory(gfid[0]) in .glusterfs, it would force to kernel keep the inodes from all those files in cache. In case of memory pressure kernel won't uncache first level inodes. We need to open 256 fd's per brick to access the entry faster. 2) Use at based call's to access relative path to reduce path based lookup time. Note: To verify the patch we have executed kernel untar 100 times on 6 different clients after enabling metadata group-cache and some other option.We were getting more than 20 percent improvement in kenel untar after applying the patch.

* copy_file_range support in GlusterFSRaghavendra Bhat2018-12-121-0/+29

It is expected to come in the upcoming release of linux-4.20 So, as of now, executing copy_file_range fop on a fused based filesystem results in fuse kernel module sending read on the source fd and write on the destination fd. Therefore a small gfapi based tool has been written to be able test the copy_file_range fop. This tool is similar (in functionality) to the example program given in copy_file_range man page. So, running regular copy_file_range on a fuse mount point and running gfapi based glfs-copy-file-range tool gives some idea about how fast, the copy_file_range (or reflink) can be. On the local machine this was the result obtained. mount -t glusterfs workstation:new /mnt/glusterfs [root@workstation ~]# cd /mnt/glusterfs/ [root@workstation glusterfs]# ls file [root@workstation glusterfs]# cd [root@workstation ~]# time /tmp/a.out /mnt/glusterfs/file /mnt/glusterfs/new real 0m6.495s user 0m0.000s sys 0m1.439s [root@workstation ~]# time glfs-copy-file-range $(hostname) new /tmp/glfs.log /file /rrr OPEN_SRC: opening /file is success OPEN_DST: opening /rrr is success FSTAT_SRC: fstat on /rrr is success copy_file_range successful real 0m0.309s user 0m0.039s sys 0m0.017s This tool needs following arguments 1) hostname 2) volume name 3) log file path 4) source file path (relative to the gluster volume root) 5) destination file path (relative to the gluster volume root) "glfs-copy-file-range <hostname> <volume> <log file path> <source> <destination>" - Added a testcase as well to run glfs-copy-file-range tool * io-stats changes to capture the fop for profiling * NOTE: - Added conditional check to see whether the copy_file_range syscall is available or not. If not, then return ENOSYS. - Added conditional check for kernel minor version in fuse_kernel.h and fuse-bridge while referring to copy_file_range. And the kernel minor version is kept as it is. i.e. 24. Increment it in future when there is a kernel release which contains the support for copy_file_range fop in fuse kernel module. * The document which contains a writeup on this enhancement can be found at Change-Id: I280069c814dd21ce6ec3be00a884fc24ab692367 updates: #536 Signed-off-by: Raghavendra Bhat <>
* libglusterfs: Move devel headers under glusterfs directoryShyamsundarR2018-12-051-0/+231
libglusterfs devel package headers are referenced in code using include semantics for a program, this while it works can be better especially when dealing with out of tree xlator builds or in general out of tree devel package usage. Towards this, the following changes are done, - moved all devel headers under a glusterfs directory - Included these headers using system header notation <> in all code outside of libglusterfs - Included these headers using own program notation "" within libglusterfs This change although big, is just moving around the headers and making it correct when including these headers from other sources. This helps us correctly include libglusterfs includes without namespace conflicts. Change-Id: Id2a98854e671a7ee5d73be44da5ba1a74252423b Updates: bz#1193929 Signed-off-by: ShyamsundarR <>
