Re: [Linux-cluster] Kernel I/O scheduler

This is a really terrific question.

We use Coraid storage, and their driver operates below the I/O scheduler, which is a shame.

Just a thought...anyone do any load testing with GFS (and non-GFS
clusters) using different I/O schedulers (CFQ v Deadline v NOOP v as?)

cluster.conf parameters (eg):

<cman hello_timer="1" deadnode_timer="10"/>

The number are integer seconds so 1 is the smallest value you
can have. Before you put that into production though, check
it under load because high I/O or network loads can cause
spurious node "failures".

see /proc/cluster/config/cman for all the changeable values.
