[pve-devel] pve-manager and disk IO monitoring

"Running a fio test also only shows marginal performance difference
between scsi-block and scsi-generic"

I think that 11% difference is not so marginal.
I'm curious to see difference with full flash array, if we have the same cpu iothread bottleneck like ceph, with scsi-block vs scsi-generic.

Maybe can we add an option to choose between scsi-block && scsi-generic
