Re: [Linux-cluster] lock_gulm is very slow. why ?



here is the result with ignore_local_fs option:

Time:
        81 seconds total
        6 seconds of transactions (166 per second)

Files:
        10692 created (132 per second)
                Creation alone: 10000 files (434 per second)
                Mixed with transactions: 692 files (115 per second)
        899 read (149 per second)
        101 appended (16 per second)
        10692 deleted (132 per second)
                Deletion alone: 10384 files (199 per second)
                Mixed with transactions: 308 files (51 per second)

Data:
        21.05 megabytes read (266.07 kilobytes per second)
        250.41 megabytes written (3.09 megabytes per second)
