[OpenAFS] Re: GCPAGs = 8
Wed, 18 Jul 2007 15:27:59 -0500
I've done a bit more digging and it appears that this is only
happening on RHEL 4.5 with openafs 1.4.4. The GCPAGs item stays at 1
for RHEL 3 machines.
I'm just trying to figure out if this is a problem I need to
investigate more, or if it is "normal" behavior and will not adversely
affect my servers.

If the database server goes down and there is no code to hear it, does
it really go down?
