[OpenAFS] Removing a backup volume
Mon, 18 Jun 2007 18:16:10 +0200
I'm currently removing a backup clone which belongs to a volume containing ~
55 GB in ~ 102000 files. 'vos status' shows a "DeleteVolume" transaction
which is running since 63 min now.
Is it supposed to take that long? I've seen this on all of our file servers
- especially when performing clone operations (e.g. vos backup, vos
release). However: cpus are ~99.5% idle (cpu load is always ~1.0 ). The
fileserver removes the clone exclusively - noone else accesses content from
the volume's volumegroup and it's the only volume on the server.
Is there a way to speed things up?
Here are some data about the machine:
* 2x Xeon 2.66GHz
* OS: Debian Etch 4.0
* Vanilla Linux kernel (188.8.131.52), SMP, no patches
* Openafs 1.4.4 (Sam Hartman's package backported from Debian Sid)
* Data partition resides on a SATA-RAID connected via a PCI-X-3Ware-Controller
Thank you for any hint,
