Back around the 18/12/2001 the 2.4.16-xfs kernel would die for me when
running the test above (80 cp processes). Eric sugested that I go with the
CVS at the time which was 2.4.17-xfs and the fixes that Steve checked into
the CVS helped a lot.
Using the 2.4.17-xfs CVS kernel it would survive the 80 cp process test but
would die at 160 cp processes whereas ext2/3 and resierfs would chug away
The test on my box takes forever (8hr+) but I intend to start testing the
current CVS tonight.
The composition of the file sizes seem to make an issue as I have done the
same test with a single 650M iso image and it was fine.
Pascal - what type and make are your drives? and what brand & make of
controllers are you using? I have never got an interrupt error but was
wondering if the hardware was simular.
