I have trouble about a storange behavior on xfs fileststem.
When I did "chmod -R 755 ." on deep directory, the system became
slow down and began to start OOMkiller after a while.
At that time, slabtop showed that the number of xfs_ili, xfs_inode,
and linvfs_icache objects are becoming very large.
My kernel version is 126.96.36.199.
A similar report is found at
Is this a expected bihavior?
Now I use "find -exec" insted of "chmod -R".
The usage of slab memory with "find" is calm and does not start
