I'm happy to report that the ploop-based CT under 042stab053.4 finishes a
punishing dbench run with no problems. I was curious to see what
performance would be like, and the dbench results from the ploop-based CT
are actually closer to the host performance than the simfs-based CT is.

Actually, this can't be true, cause simfs overhead is naturally 0%. It intercepts only statfs() to fix df output, all the rest calls are native. So it's statistical deviation if you see simfs to be slower then native.

And, yes, ploop was designed to have near 0% overhead as well (unlike Linux loopback). It bypasses FS layer and works directly with block layer on fast paths.

Thanks,
Kirill

Kir,

I'll send you the dbench scripts and output if you want - I'll even give
you remote access to my test system if you want to take a look.

Kir, you may be right. A dbench run with ploop CT yesterday yielded the
highest performance numbers ever seen on that hardware, but subsequent runs
have not been able to reproduce those results, except on the host itself.
