Hey y'all - not sure if this is a universal experience but wanted to share what I just contended with, now that Garuda Assistant has been updated and the subvolume tab will allow you to delete the Timeshift snapshots.
Apparently, I had
qgroups enabled, when I had Timeshift installed, as the GUI had indicated it is a recommended setting. Now that Garuda Assistant can delete the Timeshift snapshots, which I did, I started to notice an extreme lag on the machine. Keyboard shortcuts would take 10s of seconds to execute, or windows would take 10s of seconds to load. So, I ran
sudo iotop and noticed that both
btrfs-transaction were collectively utilizing about 99-100% IO.
A LOT of google fu and reading up on this forum in particular indicated that this usually happens after clearing up snapshots....some more google fu and all the recommendations stated to make sure quotas were disabled. Since I'm no longer using Timeshift, the bug that existed specifically with Timeshift no longer applied to me, so I went ahead and ran
sudo btrfs quota disable / then confirmed with
sudo btrfs qgroup show / indicated quota groups are disabled.
btrfs-cleaner dropped off the IO list.
Not sure if that actually helped me, but I'm noticing a far snappier and responsive desktop experience now, and thought I'd share my experience in case others have the same problem. Anyone think I did something stupid? LOL
