In this work, we developed multi-version B-tree with lazy split (LS-MVBT) to resolve the journaling of journal anomaly in Android I/O. The contribution of LS-MVBT consists of two key elements:(i) Multi-version B-tree effectively reduces the number of fsync() calls. (ii) it significantly reduces "the number of dirty pages to be synchronized in a single fsync() call" via optimizing multi-version B-tree for Android I/O. The optimization consists of five elements: Lazy split, Buffer reservation, Metadata embedding, Lazy garbage collection, and Disabling sibling redistribution.
