You mentioned LVM, I have never tested it but I'm curious :
How stable is LVM? Anyone on this list using it in a production environment?
Is is ready for production systems yet?
What about other journaling FS'es.
I hear tell that the only LVM style journaling filesystem worth talking
about it veritas VXFS, but it ain't free, as in beer.
IBM's JFS is probably the next best apart from XFS which [apparantly] is
more tailored to SGI's applications.
So for a database, what would you guys/gals recommend? I remember there last
year [or was it 2 years ago] there was issues with reiserFS under heavy
load, but whats it like now? I seem to remember resiserfs being
"good/designed" for databases, is that correct or is that rubbish?
Options? Flames :--0
