> 1- Cache tuning: examples of things people do with filesystems and how

> better. This will use standard performance monitoring utilities,
> server audit logs, client performance statistics, and network traces.
> Suggestions for particular performance cases welcomed.
> 2- Examples of some scalability issues in OpenAFS and how to see what
> those issues/limits are in your environment before they happen to you
> in production. The set of questions is tentatively:
> - do I need faster/bigger hardware?
> - can I consolidate fileservers?
> - should I replicate more ROs?
> - can I safely double the amount of disk on my fileservers?
> - can I safely double the number of clients I have in my cell?
> 4- VLDB internals and tricks: the structure of the vldb and things you
> can do with the the various vldb utilities, including dumping it to
> XML, editing that, and then rebuilding your vldb
> 5- A description of the life of an SA in a well-run OpenAFS cell,
> complete with examples of the tools and utilities that are running for
> monitoring the health of the system so the SA can rest peacefully, the
> delegation mechanisms in place so that users can handle their own
> admin, the architectural layout so that the network people are happy,
> 6- how to determine if you should split existing cells and how to
> accomplish that migration with a minimum of pain
> Thoughts, feedback, suggestions (and requests) welcomed.
