Subject: linux-image-2.6.17-1-686: abysmal disk throughput
Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2006 12:10:51 +0200
Package: linux-image-2.6.17-1-686
Version: 2.6.17-2
Severity: important


Hello,

I have a severe problem running this kernel in that it brings my
computer to a crawl, compared to the 2.6.16-1-686-smp kernel I was
running before, and am running again until this problem is fixed. The
dmesg as created by the 2.6.16 kernel is included below, and you can see
that this machine should be reasonably fast (it is, under older 2.6.x
kernels). But actual performance looks like this:


Starting X (fvwm): some 5 minutes instead of some 10-20 seconds

"baz commit", worth 1 revision and some 100KB data in some 10-15 small
files (ie, nothing): around 7 minutes instead of 5 seconds

Unpacking a small tarball (273 KB, psycopg 2.0.2): ~1 file per second

and so forth


In other words, this kernel makes the machine unusable for me.


This is the dmesg of the machine, as created by the 2.6.16 kernel I'm
running:

It would be great if someone could fix it. I can conduct small tests,
but need the machine for my daily work, too.

Subject: problem exists also in 2.6.17.6
Date: Mon, 17 Jul 2006 10:33:45 +0200
Hello,

I just created a 2.6.17.6 kernel (patch as of yesterday), and tried
again, with much the same results. So, I suspect it's somewhere in the
guts of the 2.6.17 kernel - switching back to 2.6.16 also brings
performance back to acceptable levels (already included in the report).

Should I report this bug upstream?


Best,

well... I didn't specifically check (and also forgot about this bug),
but 2.6.18 is reasonably fast, or at least fast enough that I don't
have too many problems with it.
