They will contain directory structures and files similar to the following configurations; the following are rough estimates from the application vendor.  Currently we are looking at GFS2 partitions set up with the default settings; default i386 block size, 8 journals.

It looks like you won't really need to do a lot of tuning, it should be

running on different nodes try to access the same data files. Provided
its not too often, then everything should be fine,
