iocost: bump up default latency targets for hard disks
The default hard disk param sets latency targets at 50ms. As the default target percentiles are zero, these don't directly regulate vrate; however, they're still used to calculate the period length - 100ms in this case. This is excessively low. A SATA drive with QD32 saturated with random IOs can easily reach avg completion latency of several hundred msecs. A period duration which is substantially lower than avg completion latency can lead to wildly fluctuating vrate. Let's bump up the default latency targets to 250ms so that the period duration is sufficiently long. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
