Sorry for the newbie question. was unable to find this covered in any FAQ or example. >From what I can tell of examples, it is possible to setup a cluster filesystem such as GFS or OCFS2 using drbd where two nodes, and both as primary/primary and so the data is live on both. What I'm not sure about from the examples. Can you then add more GFS/OCFS2 nodes (ie: a 3rd and 4th node) that have no local disk as part of the SAN cluster, but instead talk drbd to the first two nodes? Or would you have to run a shared failover service such as NFS on top of the two node cluster if you need multiple hosts accessing it? Mainly ask because I assume recovery time from failover would be much quicker with a cluster filesystem (doesn't have to fsck/remount), and reads (would?) be split over the two hosts instead of just one, so it should be slightly faster with two hosts serving read I/O requests instead of one. -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
