[OpenAFS] 1.6 clients: rx version pings
Fri, 2 Dec 2011 17:52:14 +0100
we had seen this during EAKC already: 1.6 clients are supposed to ping =
file servers once a second, yet they do so at much higher rates. As the =
number of 1.6 clients is increasing here, this has become a real =
The clients also seem to never stop - even if there's no longer a =
fileserver running on a certain machine, it still gets pinged.
Is there any way to prevent the client from doing this? Any way to at =
least make it forget an old fileserver? Or at least reset the rate to =
the 1 Hz it should be? Can this be disabled altogether? Supposed I find =
the place in the code where these pings happen and just remove them, =
what would be the consequences?
Thanks for any help,
