[RFC PATCH 03/11] mm/damon/reclaim: add a parameter called skip_anon for avoiding anonymous pages reclamation
Posted by SeongJae Park 2 months, 1 week ago
In some cases, for example if users have confidence at anonymous pages
management or the swap device is too slow, users would want to avoid
DAMON_RECLAIM swapping the anonymous pages out.  For such case, add yet
another DAMON_RECLAIM parameter, namely 'skip_anon'.  When it is set as
'Y', DAMON_RECLAIM will avoid reclaiming anonymous pages using a DAMOS
filter.
