Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Artemis IOPS Limiter strategy
Date Wed, 10 May 2017 17:22:56 GMT
I actually don't get your concern... looking at the TimedBuffer (after
your changes), there still a check about the timeout:

final boolean checkpoint = System.nanoTime() > lastFlushTime + timeout;
if (checkpoint || currentPendingSyncs >= estimatedOptimalBatch) {

That is, we won't flush the write unless the timeout is achieved...

that means the timeout calculated during the server.create (which is
using SyncCalculation) is still used... And this *should* work as the
IO limiter.

What am I missing here?
