Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS file system corruption?



Good deal!  I will run more test to see what else I can find.  It still seams odd that postmark started working also. 

thanks

Actually, this is normal output for the fsck.  The way GFS works is that any
metadata that is deleted is actually converted to unused metadata blocks for
later reuse instead of being freed completely.  The way the fsck tracks block
use, it ends up converting all these blocks back to free blocks.  So basically
this is what a normal fsck looks like when run on a gfs filesystem that had
lots of files deleted.
