If I remember, some openvz features works only with cfq ? (ionice, openvz IO priorities)

Myself, I'm using deadline (because It's works better for my workload with my san), but I use kvm guests.

Objet: [pve-devel] default I/O scheduler - CFQ or Deadline? 

Hi all, 

We want to discuss the changing of the pve default I/O scheduler from CFQ to Deadline. I want to collect feedback, pros and cons here. 

- only CFQ support priorities (ionice) 

- No support for priorities but generally faster for KVM in some (or a lot of?) systems. 

The scheduler can always be changed manually if the default is not suited (e.g. in /etc/default/grub). 

What do you think about this? Please report your thoughts!
