Re: [Linux-cluster] GNBD, how good it is ?


I do appreciate all that, however there are some press releases out there that are not so clear ..

There is certainly an implication in the news items I've seen that this is "THE GFS" code .. as opposed to being a new and unstable version ..

.. Incidentally, I was being kind - I've had many kernel crashes, even after getting it going ..

I'm sure I read somewhere, that the current code is considered beta.
If I'm making that up, It's implied by the fact that the DLM is quite
new, and the port to 2.6 is also pretty fresh.

It is if you've got shared storage that implements raid.

Agreed, but that's why there's a wiki, mailing list, and irc channel.

I'm sure Red Hat's product for RHEL is nice, stable, and production
ready. You are playing with relatively fresh code.
