Hello, I want to set up a nfs file server using xfs as the filesystem (~1TBytes). The server should of course run as stable as possible. So what I would like to know is what patches I need to get a s

For starters, the patch you downloaded is a development snapshot, so if it's stable, you're just lucky - it has not undergone extensive testing. If you want patches that have been internally tested a

At this time, 1.2 will be released for 2.4.19. It may be trivial to merge the patch up to 2.4.20, but all of the testing we have done has been on 2.4.19, so that will be our release kernel version.

Ist there a kind of filesystem stress-test software that would help to find bugs in a particular version of xfs if I should decide not to go with 2.4.19+xfs but perhaps 2.4.20+xfs? Thanks Rainer -- -

Try to checkout linux-2.4-xfs CVS module and you will get the xfstests which are used for testing XFS (among other things probably). Also a very used tool to stress test FS on Linux is dbench and I

I'm not saying it's bad! I'm also not saying it's good. I'm saying that CVS snapshots are just that; and that they have not been rigorously tested by anyone at SGI. the cvs tree is a development tree

The CVS trees are reflections (delayed a few hours) of the SGI internal development tree. Their stability depends on what SGI are doing to XFS. ATM it is mainly bug fixes, but large chunks could go i
