Dear BTRFS devs,
still trying to find the cause for i stumbled over the strange fact that the flush-btrfs-1 thread is writing about 1MiBps constantly onto my root fs, even after turning off io-prone BOINC and NTOP.. there are other threads doing minor IO but that seems unrelated.
My kernel is
Linux handtuch 2.6.35 #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Aug 2 13:55:56 CEST 2010 x86_64 AMD 
Phenom(tm) II X4 920 Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
with patch #488 from mentioned bug report applied. The partition is mounted
/dev/root on / type btrfs (rw,noatime,noacl)
and btrfs filesystem show /dev/sda2 gives
Label: none  uuid: 50719157-1813-4552-bcd5-65f85649e503
        Total devices 1 FS bytes used 230.12GB
        devid    1 size 465.58GB used 335.29GB path /dev/sda2
Btrfs v0.19-16-g075587c-dirty
I have uploaded an archived blktrace for about 10 minutes at (18M)
and the resulting diagram is
As i couldn't find an easy way to see what actually is located at these blocknumbers i am now kindly asking for assistance here - can anyone make any sense out of this? It surely makes me feel a lil' uncomfortable about my system's kosherness..
best regards,
marcel ;)
