Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS + CORAID Performance Problem

Not that I know of.  I usually go out of my way to name them explicitly (i.e. GNBD, AoE, NBD).

Yes, this is another big area that needs to get looked into. Network block device is so new (at least on Linux) that it requires some fine-tuning. If folks have working experiences and willing to share, we would be very happy to learn from them.

Just to be clear, the Coraid uses ATA-over-Ethernet.  AoE is a block device that utilizes the network, but it is distinct from the Network Block Device (NBD).

This is clear - somehow I always use "network block device" to describe the device that provides block device service via network (e.g. GFS's GNBD)? Is there a general (and agreed-on) term to describe this type of devices in Linux ?
