Pinned topic Gpfs && vfs inode cache

‏2008-01-28T13:27:49Z |
I'm testing GPFS for storing many-many small files (> 100.000).
I set PagePool=4096M, maxFilesToCache=100000(maximum) and maxStatCache 400000. All cache size = 2Gb during the stress test(I saw for the mmfsadm dump | grep cache |less values).
But I have servers with 16Gb Ram and I want use all this RAM for cache.
On the local FS (ext3) I have vfs inode cache (file cache). It has occuped all 16 Gb Ram and very quickly recieve by client.
Can GPFS use Vfs inode cache generally?
Best regards,
Iliya Sharov
