Thanks a bunch. The direction I was leaning on going, then, seems appropriate. I love
it when things start coming together.
Is there anyway to get some of these undocumented tunable features, well, documented? I couldn't for the life of me find anything indicating if the lock highwater mark was runtime tunable, for example.
erm, get me not busy enough that I have time to document stuff? its on my list of things todo, really. its just at the bottom somewhere.
There is -some- concern about memory usage tanking things, but that will probably end up leading us to simply moving to dedicated locking servers instead of having them on the actual shared production machines (and really, we'd only need two...'f1' is strictly for management type work and backups...)
Finally - so while it's -possible- to have the GFS "stuff" on a separate interface (and yes, it was a royal PITA getting it to work in the first place what with multiple NICs already...), it's not somthing that's at all easy to do, at least until the mentioned fix drops? bleh.
