Does anybody know, what the "cifs_other_ops" performance counter has for a meaning? I understand, cifs_read_ops and cifs_write_ops, but cifs_other_ops doesn't tell me anything. After googling, I found some answers, which means that this other_ops are some metadata operations or something. But I didn'f found an answer satisfying me.
The source of my questions is the circumstance, that I have on a volume a very high count of cifs_other_ops (2000-2500) and just 20-100 cifs_read or cifs_write ops in the same time. Typically, the value of cifs_other_ops begins to rise when user begins with their work in the morning and decreases in the evening, when they leave the workplace.
Does anybody know, what this behavior could be?
thx a lot
