Re: [Linux-cluster] To SELinux or not to SELinux ?


I have used selinux enforcing since RHEL 5.4 on a 3-node RHCS cluster.   I believe it has been supported since that release.   I made some calls back in RHEL 5.3 regarding some issues, but all problems that I experienced have been resolved.   I got plenty of support for my issues.

According to Dan Walsh, performance was addressed early on.   I have not had any performance issues using selinux in RHEL 5, RHCS included.

Oh... I didn't tought of performance influence... That alone is enough
to keep it off completly. We will be hosting a high-volume site where
every millisecond counts. That site is composed of about a million files
of different sorts. So, any added delay in accessing a file is not an
