Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS hangs, nodes die



Hi Sebastian,
you might also want to have a look at here:
http://www.open-sharedroot.org/Members/marc/blog/blog-on-gfs/
I collected some information about the problem you've hit (It must be that 
problem).
Next time you should also look at the console of every node. You should see 
some intesting messages before there.
Use the glock_purge gfs_tool option it will help and always keep a look on the 
gfs_tool counters and there on the locks.

BTW: the unable to obtain lock is only the rgmanager complaining about not 
being able to obtain a lock and as side effect. The problem is that a new 
lockid cannot be got within time.

Regards Marc.
