Write performance

erinye2-vm2 writes a large file (16gb):

write of 17179869184 bytes took 187.631 sec.
close took 0.602 sec.
Total data rate = 89130 Kbytes/sec. for write 

Read performance

load impact

...is considerable after all. Upon start of a batch job, read throughput has been observed to drop from ~115MBps to ~50MBps.

Things to find out:


We did at least once observe cache corruptions. This is what five machines said during one run:

wrong offset found: (0x1, 0xa71c0000) instead of (0x0, 0x15300000)
wrong offset found: (0x0, 0x73f90000) instead of (0x1, 0x22160000)
wrong offset found: (0x1, 0x7d120000) instead of (0x0, 0x94400000)
wrong offset found: (0x2, 0xab0f0000) instead of (0x0, 0xbd0000)
wrong offset found: (0x1, 0x50580000) instead of (0x0, 0x88900000) 

Apparently, all of them were running pre-r690 versions of the AFS+OSD client, so this seems to confirm that
