> Checkpoint write speed is suboptimal with default 2K page on most UNIX-driven enviroments
with SSD disk. There are several reasons for this:
> 1) Page size of linux page cache is 4k by default on most kernels (you can check yours
by "getconf PAGE_SIZE" command). With 2k random writes vm.dirty_ratio threshold is reached
two times faster than with 4k random writes.
> 2) Most SSD manufacturers don't expose actual disk page size, but they recommend to write
at least 4k at once. Also, 4k blocks are used during benchmarking SSD random writes. 
> Related question: https://superuser.com/questions/1168014/nvme-ssd-why-is-4k-writing-faster-than-reading
> Article by Emmanuel Goossaert describing why writing less than a page is —Āounterproductive:
> I've prepared a checkpoint emulation benchmark (code and results attached). Run on production-level
hardware (CentOS, 100 GB RAM, total LFS size is 100GB, vm.dirty_ratio=10) showed that checkpointing
with 4k pages is much more efficient than with 2k.
> *Important: backwards compatibility must be ensured with LFS files created with old 2k
default page size.*
