This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.
The io_uring VFS module enables asynchronous pread, pwrite and fsync using the io_uring infrastructure of Linux (>= 5.1). This provides much less overhead compared to the usage of the pthreadpool for async io.
Straight forward use:
[cooldata] m[blue]path = /data/icem m[blue]vfs objects = io_uringm
io_uring:num_entries = NUMBER_OF_QUEUE_ENTRIES
The default is '128'.
io_uring:sqpoll = BOOL
The default is 'no'.
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
