[Linux-cluster] Directories with >100K files



Hi all,

cman-2.0.84-2.el5
gfs2-utils-0.1.44-1.el5_2.1
gfs-utils-0.1.17-1.el5
kmod-gfs-0.1.23-5.el5
kmod-gfs2-1.92-1.1.el5
kmod-gfs2-PAE-1.92-1.1.el5
kmod-gfs-PAE-0.1.23-5.el5
openais-0.80.3-15.el5
rgmanager-2.0.38-2.el5

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Tikanga)
kernel 2.6.18-92.1.10.el5PAE

We are running the standard GFS1 that came with RedHat 5.2.

We have a GFS filesystem mounted over iSCSI. When doing an 'ls' on directories with
several thousand files it takes around 10 minutes to get a response back -

# time ls
real    8m58.704s
user    0m1.369s
sys     1m32.641s

# ls | wc -l
120359

We only have this issue on directories with thousands of files in.

Can anyone recommend any GFS tunables to help us out here ?
Should we set statfs_fast to 1 ?
What about glock_purge ?

Here is the fstab entry for the GFS filesystem:
/dev/vggfs/lvol00       /apps                   gfs     _netdev         1 2

Here is gfs_tool df /apps
/apps:
  SB lock proto = "lock_dlm"
  SB lock table = "TEST:GFS1"
  SB ondisk format = 1309
  SB multihost format = 1401
  Block size = 4096
  Journals = 4
  Resource Groups = 3342
  Mounted lock proto = "lock_dlm"
  Mounted lock table = "TEST:GFS1"
  Mounted host data = "jid=1:id=65537:first=0"
  Journal number = 1
  Lock module flags = 0
  Local flocks = FALSE
  Local caching = FALSE
  Oopses OK = FALSE

  Type           Total          Used           Free           use%

  data           208673972      62025003       146648969      30%


Here is the output of gfs_tool gettune /apps | sort

Any help appreciated
