[Linux-cluster] GFS freezing, again



Hello,

There is one thing I want to confirm.

Does freezing GFS ensure filesystem-level consistency?  Or, does
it only stop the filesystem activity?

I'm attempting to take periodic hot backup of GFS, using "gfs_tool
freeze", linux-iscsi, and NetApp's volume snapshot facility.  But
when I do gfs_fsck on the newly created snapshot volume, some
adjustments and moving files to l+f are happens relatively
frequently, like the following.  Should I do "gfs_tool freeze" on
all nodes?  At this time I'm doing it on one node of three-node
cluster.  Just in case I'm using sync before and after freezing.

FC4 (2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp)
Cluster-1.00.00 tarball
Linux-iSCSI 4.0.2.1
NetApp F825 6.5.5

Thanks,

# sync
# gfs_tool freeze $gfscookie
# sync
# rsh $netapp snap create $gfsvol ${gfsvol}ss
# gfs_tool unfreeze $gfscookie
# rsh netapp ...
# ... (import the snapshot "${gfsvol}ss" as /dev/isdb)
# gfs_fsck -y /dev/isdb
