Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS Tuning - it's just slow, to slow for production

That should be "-o relatime" and "-o noatime", respectively =)

Subject: Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS Tuning - it's just slow,to slow for production

I rebuild the share as GFS2, and mounted GFS2 instead of GFS.

In /etc/fstab I am mounting with:

/dev/mapper/vg_acct10-lv_acct10 /acct10 gfs2 defaults 1 2

I tried mounting:
/dev/mapper/vg_acct10-lv_acct10 /acct10 gfs2 -o reltime 1 2

/dev/mapper/vg_acct10-lv_acct10 /acct10 gfs2  -o notime 1 2

It complained about /etc/fstab not having valid arguments. I also got  very different parameters with gfs2_tool gettune /mountpoint then what I saw in gfs:

[root fenclxmrcati11 bin]# gfs2_tool gettune /acct10
new_files_directio = 0
new_files_jdata = 0
quota_scale = 1.0000   (1, 1)
logd_secs = 1
recoverd_secs = 60
statfs_quantum = 30
stall_secs = 600
quota_cache_secs = 300
quota_simul_sync = 64
statfs_slow = 0
complain_secs = 10
max_readahead = 262144
quota_quantum = 60
quota_warn_period = 10
jindex_refresh_secs = 60
log_flush_secs = 60
incore_log_blocks = 1024

My question - how do I mount the volume via /etc/fstab with -o noatime or -o reltime?
For quota management - Documentation suggests mounting with mount -o quota=account options, is this necessary if I set the quotas with gfs2_quota command?

Are you concurrently accessing same directories from multiple nodes? If so, re-arrange the access pattern so each node is accessing independent subtrees. Otherwise you'll have massive lock churn and very poor latencies.
