begin Irish Bastard quotation:
> Moshe Bar did a column on Mosix + GFS a while back:
Yeah, GFS is pretty good. It solves the problem of sharing
/var/run/utmp etc for the "big machine" feel.
But getting a big ol' shared-SCSI box is costly, and writing
stuff to tty device files will only work on the local host. Is the
solution to just have one server that everyone runs all programs from,
and hope that it can dispatch processes to the farm quickly enough?
I've looked all over the site, but I can't seem to find a
proper description of what MFS is. Is it an actual on-disk
filesystem? Is it just a network export layer like NFS?
