[OpenAFS] Low load on multi core fileserver
Mon, 3 May 2010 15:09:25 +0200
is the openafs-fileserver supposed to take advantage of multiple cpu cores?
I got a new big server which I tried to use as a afs-fileserver (just for
fun - the server will be dedicated to something else later). However, 7 of
its 8 cores seems to idle all the time - even when 7 afs-clients are writing
data into volumes on harddisks attached to the server. BTW: There's one
harddisc per volume.
The network seems not to be a bottleneck - performance varies between 10 and
20 MB/s on a 1GBit-Link.
I admit to have a rather old Openafs version (1.4.10). Is there a chance to
increase utilisation of this server? Will upgrading to 1.4.12 fix this?
The server runs Debian Lenny without further modifications - kernel is
Thank you for any help.
