RE: [Linux-cluster] Node lag - GFS performance numbers of 4 node cluster with tiotest



1. How much ram has each node
2. do they have fibre attached storage, and which, how many disks,
raid-controller cache size, or is it local disks, and again, what raid
controller and how many disks are you using?
3. when running tiotest, does it does it depend from where you run it on
what performance you see? Do those four threads run one on each node or
is it one node running four threads?

My first reaction to the numbers is:

2500MB/s sounds like it's not coming from disk but from RAM.

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.
