Hi, all. I would like to know for that many cores, what kind of file
system should we go with? Currently we have a couple of clusters with
around 100 cores and NFS seems to be ok but not great. We definitely
need to put in place a parallel file system for this new cluster and I
do not know which one I should go with? Lustre, GFS, PVFS2 or what
else? Could you share your experiences regarding this aspect?
I also would like to know how many head nodes should I need to manage
jobs and queues. And what else should I have to worry about?
Thank you very much for sharing any experiences.
