Subject: Help: ext4 jbd2 IO requests slow down fsync


I used to run my application on ext3 on SSD and recently switched to
ext4. However, my application sees performance regression. The root
cause is, iosnoop shows that the workload includes a lot of fsync and
every fsync does data IO and also jbd2 IO. While on ext3, it seldom
does journal IO. Is there a way to tune ext4 to increase fsync
performance? Say, by reducing jbd2 IO requests?
