RE: [Linux-cluster] Ls and globbing taking ridiculously long on GFS



I received the following from Wendy in response to the question:

hmm.... I'm not familiar with this version of GFS but it is ok ... will 
see what oprofile says. A good tutorial can be found at:

http://people.redhat.com/wcohen/

The following is a cheat sheet for you - if you have questions, let us 
know. 

0. Obtain a script called "opreport_module" in Will's people page; put 
it into /tmp and chmod +x.
1. opcontrol --init
2. opcontrol --setup --vmlinux=/usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/`uname
-r`/vmlinux
3. opcontrol --start
4. (run your ls here)
5. opcontrol --dump
6. opcontrol --shutdown
7. opreport --long-filenames (pipe this output to a file and email me)
8. /tmp/opreport_module /gfs (pipe this output to a file and email me).

I know this is an old thread, but I'm curious how to run oprofile
myself.  Any tips?

Thanks,
Tom

As long as its not too disruptive, I can definitely run oprofile.
Instructions would be handy however.  =)
