1 OCFS2 filesystem 2 ================== 3 OCFS2 is a general purpose extent based shared disk cluster file 4 system with many similarities to ext3. It supports 64 bit inode 5 numbers, and has automatically extending metadata groups which may 6 also make it attractive for non-clustered use. 7 8 You'll want to install the ocfs2-tools package in order to at least 9 get "mount.ocfs2" and "ocfs2_hb_ctl". 10 11 Project web page: http://oss.oracle.com/projects/ocfs2 12 Tools web page: http://oss.oracle.com/projects/ocfs2-tools 13 OCFS2 mailing lists: http://oss.oracle.com/projects/ocfs2/mailman/ 14 15 All code copyright 2005 Oracle except when otherwise noted. 16 17 CREDITS: 18 Lots of code taken from ext3 and other projects. 19 20 Authors in alphabetical order: 21 Joel Becker <firstname.lastname@example.org> 22 Zach Brown <email@example.com> 23 Mark Fasheh <firstname.lastname@example.org> 24 Kurt Hackel <email@example.com> 25 Tao Ma <firstname.lastname@example.org> 26 Sunil Mushran <email@example.com> 27 Manish Singh <firstname.lastname@example.org> 28 Tiger Yang <email@example.com> 29 30 Caveats 31 ======= 32 Features which OCFS2 does not support yet: 33 - Directory change notification (F_NOTIFY) 34 - Distributed Caching (F_SETLEASE/F_GETLEASE/break_lease) 35 36 Mount options 37 ============= 38 39 OCFS2 supports the following mount options: 40 (*) == default 41 42 barrier=1 This enables/disables barriers. barrier=0 disables it, 43 barrier=1 enables it. 44 errors=remount-ro(*) Remount the filesystem read-only on an error. 45 errors=panic Panic and halt the machine if an error occurs. 46 intr (*) Allow signals to interrupt cluster operations. 47 nointr Do not allow signals to interrupt cluster 48 operations. 49 noatime Do not update access time. 50 relatime(*) Update atime if the previous atime is older than 51 mtime or ctime 52 strictatime Always update atime, but the minimum update interval 53 is specified by atime_quantum. 54 atime_quantum=60(*) OCFS2 will not update atime unless this number 55 of seconds has passed since the last update. 56 Set to zero to always update atime. This option need 57 work with strictatime. 58 data=ordered (*) All data are forced directly out to the main file 59 system prior to its metadata being committed to the 60 journal. 61 data=writeback Data ordering is not preserved, data may be written 62 into the main file system after its metadata has been 63 committed to the journal. 64 preferred_slot=0(*) During mount, try to use this filesystem slot first. If 65 it is in use by another node, the first empty one found 66 will be chosen. Invalid values will be ignored. 67 commit=nrsec (*) Ocfs2 can be told to sync all its data and metadata 68 every 'nrsec' seconds. The default value is 5 seconds. 69 This means that if you lose your power, you will lose 70 as much as the latest 5 seconds of work (your 71 filesystem will not be damaged though, thanks to the 72 journaling). This default value (or any low value) 73 will hurt performance, but it's good for data-safety. 74 Setting it to 0 will have the same effect as leaving 75 it at the default (5 seconds). 76 Setting it to very large values will improve 77 performance. 78 localalloc=8(*) Allows custom localalloc size in MB. If the value is too 79 large, the fs will silently revert it to the default. 80 localflocks This disables cluster aware flock. 81 inode64 Indicates that Ocfs2 is allowed to create inodes at 82 any location in the filesystem, including those which 83 will result in inode numbers occupying more than 32 84 bits of significance. 85 user_xattr (*) Enables Extended User Attributes. 86 nouser_xattr Disables Extended User Attributes. 87 acl Enables POSIX Access Control Lists support. 88 noacl (*) Disables POSIX Access Control Lists support. 89 resv_level=2 (*) Set how aggressive allocation reservations will be. 90 Valid values are between 0 (reservations off) to 8 91 (maximum space for reservations). 92 dir_resv_level= (*) By default, directory reservations will scale with file 93 reservations - users should rarely need to change this 94 value. If allocation reservations are turned off, this 95 option will have no effect. 96 coherency=full (*) Disallow concurrent O_DIRECT writes, cluster inode 97 lock will be taken to force other nodes drop cache, 98 therefore full cluster coherency is guaranteed even 99 for O_DIRECT writes. 100 coherency=buffered Allow concurrent O_DIRECT writes without EX lock among 101 nodes, which gains high performance at risk of getting 102 stale data on other nodes.
