Had a headache tonight. Because of that, I didnt went to school and slept until 10h. Woke up, logged in, and tried Andrea's "backport" of balance_dirty() from 2.4 to 2.2.17pre6. I was right yesterday when I said "maybe we still can make I/O a bit faster". With Andrea's patch, I was able to get 21MB/sec with dbench (48 processes) , against 17MB/sec of 2.2.16pre9. After lunch, ported this patch and sent to linux-kernel. Also I came up with a solution (which does not affect performance) to the problem were a process would wait on IO completion to free a buffer page while there is freeable cache around, pointed by Andrea.

Upgraded my machine to Conectiva Linux 5.1 and XFree 4 to the latest CVS stuff, now I have accents working on it. (thanks to our local XFree hacker). Tested a bit more 2.2.17pre8 VM, maybe we still can make I/O a bit faster. Spent some time on userbeans, file descriptor charging is now working. Also translated elvtune man page to portuguese.

More work on 2.2.15 kernel RPM. Released the first version of it for CLS 5.1 Beta. Also almost finised 2.2.15 RPM update for 4.2, 4.0, 5.0 (just a few bits of working to get it done, tomorrow). VIA82cxxx sound card worked on 2.3, tomorrow i hope to do the backport to 2.2. Unfortunately 3c90x driver from 3Com is borked wrt SMP according to Alan.

Usual school day. I've been working on the kernel RPM for Conectiva Linux 5.1 this afternoon. Almost finished the update 2.2.15 RPM for other distribution versions. Cleaned the two HA machines and my two test machines _and_ my table. Now with two 2-box clusters we can test HA stuff without screaming "Hey, anyone using the machines?" all the time. Added 512mb of memory to plucky (it had 64mb). Unfortunately one 256mb chip was broken. Tomorrow 1 gig should be arriving so Rik can test his VM stuff with highmem.

<diary lame> The previous diary entry is for 9 April 2000 </diary lame> Woke up 6:10 with Rik making the sound explode with Jimi Hendrix. Went to school, everything proceeded as always there. In the afternoon i found one SMP bug in drbd and now it seems to be SMP safe. Applied the yesterday patch to drbd-CVS, modified it a bit and sent both patches to Philipp. Started to apply by hand my heartbeat per-link status patch against heartbeat-CVS. I will finish this tomorrow, along with more changes i have in mind.
