GUCs in terms of units that are meaningful to the user. One could
have something like io_rate_limit (measured in MB/s),
io_read_multiplier = 1.0, io_dirty_multiplier = 1.0, and I think that
would be reasonably clear.
There's one other way to frame this:
io_read_limit = 7.8MB/s # Maximum read rate
io_dirty_multiplier = 2.0 # How expensive writes are considered
relative to reads
That still gives all of the behavior I'd like to preserve, as well as
not changing the default I/O pattern. I don't think it's too
complicated to ask people to grapple with that pair.
