Thread: 64 bit linux, NFS, > 16 Terabytes?

  1. 64 bit linux, NFS, > 16 Terabytes?


    Has anyone been able to use some form of 64 bit linux (x86-64, PowerPC,
    whatever) to create a larger-than 16 terabyte filesystem, exported over
    NFS?

    If yes:

    Did you use md? LVM? LVM2?

    What filesystem? JFS? XFS?

    Are you using it in production?

    Which kernel version are you using?

    What version of NFS are you using?

    Did you involve NBD? ENBD? AoE?

    Thanks!

    Would it be strictly necessary to use an 64-bit kernel to use large
    file systems? BSD has had a 64-bit off_t for quite a few years, even
    on the 32-bit archictectures (as has Solaris with the correct
    compilter flags or system calls).

    NFS version 3 (or 4) needs to be used as earlier versions didn't have
    any support for offsets and file sizes greater than 32-bits.
