Hi Gavin,

You could also try my hang analyzer to see if it finds anything:

http://people.redhat.com/rpeterso/Experimental/RHEL5.x/gfs2/gfs2_hangalyzer.c

Compile with: gcc -o gfs2_hangalyzer gfs2_hangalyzer.c

Run with: ./gfs2_hangalyzer -n <any node in the cluster>

This leaves a bunch of files in /tmp/ so you may want to clean them up.

But be forewarned that you should have rsa keys set up ahead of time
so you can ssh to all the nodes in your cluster without a password
before running this tool.
