ping_pong: measures the ping-pong byte range lock latency

NAME

ping_pong - measures the ping-pong byte range lock latency

SYNOPSIS

ping_pong {-r | -w | -rw} [-m] [-c] {FILENAME} {NUM-LOCKS}

DESCRIPTION

ping_pong measures the byte range lock latency. It is especially useful on a cluster of nodes sharing a common lock manager as it will give some indication of the lock manager's performance under stress.

FILENAME is a file on shared storage to use for byte range locking tests.

NUM-LOCKS is the number of byte range locks, so needs to be (strictly) greater than the number of nodes in the cluster.

OPTIONS

-r

test read performance

-w

test write performance

-m

use mmap

-c

validate the locks

EXAMPLES

Testing lock coherence

      ping_pong test.dat N
    

Testing lock coherence with lock validation

      ping_pong -c test.dat N
    

Testing IO coherence

      ping_pong -rw test.dat N
