Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS usage with MySQL



You should check this out: 

http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/

You don't need GFS nor a shared storage for it. I'm using it for a
shared Bayes database for SpamAssassin and for storing sessions for our
web farm. It's still work-in-a-progress, but it works fairly good
(almost no glitches :)

Thinking about your idea, I'm not quite sure that it will work with
MySQL after all (and, if you even do manage to make it work, I'm pretty
sure it will have severe performance penalty). 

Note to list admin: could you please change the value of a List-Id:
header field? I'm not sure that 'linux clistering' is the right name for
the list ;)
