Improving the Linux Page Cache - Matthew Wilcox

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This talk is for people who are interested in:
* reducing the amount of memory used by COW files and containers
* using large pages for files
* supporting filesystem block sizes larger than the system page size
* improving support for persistent memory
* reporting file holes
* reducing memory consumption for small files

Some of these use cases are new and others have been requested for years, but what they all have in common is needing to enhance the page cache without negatively affecting the performance of reads, writes and mmap.
