That is interesting; particularly since I have made one quite different
experience in which deadline outperformed CFQ by a factor of approximately 4.
So I tried to look for differences, and I found two possible places:
- My test case was read-only, our production system is read-mostly.
- We did not have a RAID array, but a SAN box (with RAID inside).
The "noop" scheduler performed about as well as "deadline".
I wonder if the two differences above could explain the different
