Improved Btrfs Scrub Code Readied For Linux 6.4, ~10% Faster
This week a number of patches from SUSE engineer Qu Wenruo were queued into kdave's linux.git for-next branch of the Btrfs file-system driver development code.
Qu Wenruo has been working on this improved Btrfs scrub code to address problems of the existing code doing too many jumps, inefficient IOPS for fragmented extents, and other limitations.
The new Btrfs scrub code has been streamlined with numerous improvements, including better performance.
Look for this and other Btrfs improvements with the Linux 6.4 merge window coming up in a few weeks while the stable kernel will be out around the middle of July.
