what are you using to measure the buffers and what buffers are we
talking about specifically?
I was just using "top" to monitor the amount of memory in the buffers and
caches. I also used "slabtop" to monitor the /proc/slabinfo data, and I noticed
that the amount of memory used by all the slabs seemed to be much less than the amount of
memory "top" reported in buffers or caches.
Also have same lustre client but on 5.8. I can do some test
to confirm . We use collectl--> graphite for monitoring.
Thanks. I appreciate it.
