I have a 3rd generation Drobo-S that causes nfs server timeouts unless I set the mount options to timeo=500.
It’s connected via an eSATA cable rated at 600 MB/s, on a 20Gb SAN.
There’s an X25-E SSD in that server, and I’d like to relocate the Drobo’s ext3 journals to there.
I understand that the provisioning methods employed internally are sensitive to how the blocks are put to use, and would like to know if they’re capable of functioning properly in the case of an offloaded journal.
Thank you in advance.
