Re: Is anyone using Ext3 on 2.4.x and software raid 5?



I've been doing some extensive througput testing -- seems pretty stable the
last couple weeks.
I'm on a DUAL 1Ghz/2G-RAM system with a 7x36G Fiber Channel RAID5

Doing a tiobench on the RAID5/ext3 results in a LOT of kswapd usage right
now which makes multi-threaded I/O considerably slower than ext2.  Plus, the
machine appears to "lock up" for a minute or two while kswapd goes nuts
during the benchmark.  Of course I'm blasting it with a 4G test file.

Is anyone using Ext3 on a 2.4.x kernel with software raid5?  Does it
work correctly?  Last I checked noone had tried it yet, but that was
before I went away on vacation.
