Hi Everyone,

Here are my notes from the workshop configuration discussion about 
recommended configuration options:

recommended size: 20% of root drive  or larger if needed for your 
working set.
-nojumbograms (?? not documented. is this an option?)
-stackhash (?? Is this for real? It's not documented)

-p 128 ( maximum number of threads )
-vattach # (greater than 1. should this be equal the number of partitions)
-cb # (1 million or more callbacks)
no fastrestart
more fun options with using demand-attach

-p 16 (use the maximum of 16 threads)

-all# where # is the number of partitions on separate spindles

I could not find the mentioned email from May 12, 2005 on the 
openafs-info list that describes recommendations for afsd options.

I welcome any commentary on this.
