Re: [Linux-cluster] cluster architecture

I've got 3 nodes direct attached to SAN. The performance of GFS has disappointed me a bit so far. Maybe I've got something wrong but then again documentation is lacking... unless I'm looking in the wrong places.

Previously in a slightly different configuration I had only a slight performance hit with IBM's GPFS.

Raw throughput isn't really an issue for us. We're more interested in seek times. My biggest concern with GFS is stability and performance...any feedback in regards to that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

So far, GFS has worked quite well under our tests.  We have yet to have
it break.  Our current GFS implementation is only on two nodes with gulm
running on a separate lock server.  I intend to update the kernels on
those nodes sometime this week (to the 2.6.11 variety) and change the
locking from gulm to cman (since that seems to be fixed at this point).

Again not too sure about the different locking mechanisms .. do you mean cman/dlm? will this work better for you?
