[Cluster-devel] KCS Articles related to GFS2



Over the last year that have been many articles written related to GFS2. bob has really been instrumental in helping get some of these deeper articles written such as the one on performance.

If there are any articles that we need to write to fill in some missing gaps then please respond. btw, you need rhn.redhat.com login/password to access the articles.

Articles that need cleaning up or expanding on:
* The NFS/samba articles could use a clean up to clarify and make more clear.
* We probably expand on is with GFS2 withdraws. Currently we are trying to get all those articles under control, but if anyone has ideas then feel free to respond.
