There's a parameter on nilfs_cleanerd.conf called protection_period.
It means checkpoints are kept intact at least that many seconds. You
may want to lower that. In addition, you can lower cleaning_interval
to make nilfs_cleanerd act more often, and raise nsegments_per_clean
to perform a more aggressive (and in my experience, CPU intensive)
Unless I'm doing insanely heavy writes or I have very little space
left, I find the defaults to work just fine, but yes, some kind of
autotuning feature in nilfs_cleanerd would be great.
