RE: [Linux-cluster] Node lag



Also, I think it might be interesting to see what happens when you use data
sizes that
will overrun any cacheing being done. I've seen great performance using a
simple MSA1000
as long as there is a lot of cache available on the SAN itself. As soon as I
run tests with
data sets larger then the cache size, the performance falls to the floor.
Unless your over
loading the cache, you might not be getting a true metric of whats really
getting written 
to disk.

Maybe the slow node is getting hit by cache overhead from the SAN? 


Just a thought

It would be helpful if you could give us more information about your
installation: disk topology, lock manager in use (and which nodes are
lockservers if using GULM) and whether it matters which nodes are started
first or not.
