How would you go about favoring reads on a disk rather than writes? Writes can wait for this one disk but reads really need to be favored.
The reason is we tend to view content from the same drive while the drive is being written too. This makes viewing the video very choppy and laggy. It's an ssd too.
The Anticipatory I/O Scheduler looked perfect but that was taken out for cfq and that taken out for deadline and deadline is what we are having issues with.
