Yes we use AS scheduler. Benchmarking results on workloads have shown that
AS does as good a job (and better in some cases) as CFQ. When there is
a single thread reading/writing to disk, AS performs as well as CFQ. With
multiple threads doing IO such that there are a lot of outstanding
requests, CFQ performs worse than AS in terms of throughput.
