Video and slides available for "Applying Polling Techniques to QEMU: Reducing virtio-blk I/O Latency"

At KVM Forum 2017 I gave a talk about the AioContext polling optimization that was merged in QEMU 2.9. It reduces latency for virtio-blk and virtio-scsi devices with the iothread= option on high IOPS devices like recent NVMe PCIe SSDs drives. It increases performance for latency-sensitive workloads and has been designed to avoid interfering with workloads that do not benefit from polling thanks to a self-tuning algorithm.

The video of the talk is now available:

The slides are available here (PDF).


  1. I will watch this video now. Thanks for sharing it here. Good job.
