Optimize checkpoints to reduce throughput disruption

    • Type: Icon: Bug Bug
    • Resolution: Done
    • Priority: Icon: Major - P3 Major - P3
    • WT2.9.0, 3.2.10, 3.3.11
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Component/s: None
    • None
    • Storage Engines

      There are a large set of changes in this ticket including:

      • Release checkpoint transaction before syncing.
      • Replace write leaves phase of checkpoints with a mode that steps down the dirty content in cache using eviction.
      • Change the default eviction dirty trigger (20) and target (5)

      While measuring the workload in WT-2747, I noticed that transaction IDs stayed pinned while a checkpoint was waiting for updates to sync.

      This dates back to WT-1982 and SERVER-18316: the checkpoint's transaction snapshot is released before the sync, but that no longer clears the global "checkpoint pinned" transaction ID.
