Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS Journaling: How to interpret gfs_tool jindex output?

I'm trying to measure the usage of journal blocks created within a GFS

Also I like to hear from anyone who went through similar exercise of
understanding GFS journal usage in an active system.
Hi Sridharan,

gfs_tool jindex just dumps the journal index file of a GFS file system.
The jindex file is an index of all the journals and where they're located
and the number of segments.  The first part of the output is just a dump
of the jindex file's inode, which doesn't tell you much.
This doesn't tell you much about what's happening inside the actual
