Hi Vadim,

Thanks for your finding. The size is updated after previous io request. This method is correct and better.

BR,
Ping

Hi!
Looks like this small fix doesn't work in case when the total size of the file is less than the size of the buffer and it was partly read.
In my case the size of the file is 16384 bytes and only one page of the file was in page cache. This patch produces size = 8192 bytes
for my case and the next call reads 12288 bytes and generates errors like below:
"[alert] 28441#28441: *20855 pread() read only 12288 of 8192 from <filename>"
changing to
size = ngx_min(size, dst->end - dst->last);
fixes the problem
Thanks,
Vadim

Hello, add a small update to correct the length when part of request already received in previous.
This case may happen when using io_uring and throughput increased.

Hi Vladimir,

No special/extra configuration needed, but need check if 'aio on' and 'sendfile off' is correctly set. This is my Nginx config for reference:

user nobody;
daemon off;
worker_processes 1;
error_log error.log ;
events {
worker_connections 65535;
use epoll;
}

http {
include mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;
access_log on;
aio on;
sendfile off;
directio 2k;

# Cache Configurations
proxy_cache_path /mnt/cache0 levels=2 keys_zone=nginx-cache0:400m max_size=1400g inactive=4d use_temp_path=off; ......


To better measure the disk io performance data, I do the following steps:
1. To exclude other impact, and focus on disk io part.(This patch only impact disk aio read process) Use cgroup to limit Nginx memory usage. Otherwise Nginx may also use memory as cache storage and this may cause test result not so straight.(since most cache hit in memory, disk io bw is low, like my previous mail found which didn't exclude the memory cache impact)
echo 2G > memory.limit_in_bytes
use ' cgexec -g memory:nginx' to start Nginx.

2. use wrk -t 100 -c 1000, with random 25000 http requests.
My previous test used -t 200 connections, comparing with -t 1000, libaio performance drop more when connections numbers increased from 200 to 1000, but io_uring doesn't. It's another advantage of io_uring.

3. First clean the cache disk and run the test for 30 minutes to let Nginx store the cache files to nvme disk as much as possible.

4. Rerun the test, this time Nginx will use ngx_file_aio_read to extract the cache files in nvme cache disk. Use iostat to track the io data. The data should be align with NIC bw since all data should be from cache disk.(need exclude memory as cache storage impact)

Following is the test result:

Nginx worker_processes 1:
4k 100k 1M
Io_uring 220MB/s 1GB/s 1.3GB/s
Libaio 70MB/s 250MB/s 600MB/s(with -c 200, 1.0GB/s)


Nginx worker_processes 4:
4k 100k 1M
Io_uring 800MB/s 2.5GB/s 2.6GB/s(my nvme disk io maximum bw)
libaio 250MB/s 900MB/s 2.0GB/s

So for small request, io_uring has huge improvement than libaio. In previous mail, because I didn't exclude the memory cache storage impact, most cache file is stored in memory, very few are from disk in case of 4k/100k. The data is not correct.(for 1M, because the cache is too big to store in memory, it wat in disk) Also I enabled directio option "directio 2k" this time to avoid this.

Regards,
Ping

Can you please provide full test results with specific nginx configuration?
