Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS2 locking issues



Dennis,

You seem to be running plock_rate_limit=100 that limits the number of
plocks/sec to 100 to avoid network flooding due to plocks.

Setting this as <gfs_controld plock_rate_limit="0"/> in cluster.conf
should give you better plock performance.

Hope this helps,
Thanks!
