    I have two performance related queries for GFS,

1. What would be the optimal number of GFS nodes I can

This is a good question. I had heard that GFS had been tested at
somewhere near 300 nodes or something, but further investigation
has shown that those tests were using the old GULM.

As I understand it now, with DLM, the system is limited a practical
limit of around 16 nodes. Is this still correct?

2. How would the comparisions between GFS and Lustre file system
   look like in terms of
   - Number of nodes supported for optimal performance and
   - Bandwidth usage.

Another very good question, indeed.
