Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1005786
Last modified: 2017-03-06 13:17:37 EST
Description of problem:
To be able to connect directly from XenServer to GlusterFS using NFSv4 which have higher speeds.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I did try using native NFSv4 from a CentOS 6.x machine and the speeds of version 4 of the protocol are great.
I suggest to split out in a new BZ the implementation for:
- server-side file cloning
- server-side file pre-allocation
so that they can be implemented separately from nfs v4 support.
NFSv4 will be provided through the integration with nfs-ganesha. There is some documentation available on the project space:
nfs-ganesha-2.1.0-5.el6 is available from EPEL-6 already:
There are some blog posts on the gluster.org website that talk about it too:
NFS-Ganesha provides support nfsv4 hence closing this bug
