The Global File System allows a cluster of machines to concurrently access shared storage hardware like SANs or iSCSI and network block devices. GFS can be deployed to build high-availability services without the single point of failure of a file server.
This package provides userspace tools for creating and managing global file systems. GFS itself is a set of kernel modules.
Note: the package requires gfs2-tools installed; this is known to be reliable even though the GFS2 kernel modules themselves are highly experimental and *MUST NOT* be used in a production environment yet.
Packaging notes The documentation provided by upstream is not the best around the world so here is a collections of little useful info: Administrator's Guide: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/csgfs/browse/rh-gfs-en/ Configuration examples are located in /usr/share/doc/gfs-tools/examples/ rgmanager error codes are located in /usr/share/doc/rgmanager/errors.txt KNOWN ISSUES ------------ NOTE more»
