The nr_requests is a parameter for block device, it controls maximum requests may be allocated in the block layer for read or write requests, the default value is 128.
Occasionally, it may be suggested to adjust the value, generally speaking:
Increasing the value will improve the I/O throughput, but will also increase the memory usage.
