|I've added another 1TB drive to my server and moved away from a LVM system and are trying to use mhddfs to offer up my files on the server.
Previously using LVM and nfs I had no problems like I'm experiencing now so it can't be hardware.
If I copy small files off/onto the mhddfs alls ok but if I let say amarok do a scan to see if there are any new music files I can see the load on the server shoot up and finally the machine crashes with;
nfsd exited with preempt_count 1
I've reduced the number of nfs instances down to two and have a definite performance hit but it hasn't helped and I get the above crash, just takes a little longer.
I've done the usual searches but nothing comes to hand or I'm not looking in the right places.
Can anyone help?
