Re: [Xen-users] putting virtual domains into NFS mounts into turn mounted on DRBD devices.

Hi all,

I'm worried about this because we are going to be using these virtual servers for webhosting. Email and web traffic will be quite high and I'm afraid its gonna thrash the harddisk with the high disk i/o expected. And if the disk for storing the domUs are NFS exports..I'm not so sure if performance will be hit badly. comments anyone? or has anyone got a better suggestion??

Has anyone ever put their domU into an NFS mount (which sits on top of a DRBD device) before? Will their be any performance issues if I were to do that?

NFS yes, but without DRBD.

In a gigabit-net the performance was not a problem at all, I only had
problems with some very new PRO/1000-nics. I replaced them with older
PRO/1000-nics and everything ran fine from this point!
