My name is Dubravko Markic and i am working with the XFS
filesystem as part of my project. I am using a Linux operating system,
or better yet, a SuSe CORE 9 system. I have installed XFS filesystem on
one of the partitions on my computer. My XFS filesystem has a default
configuration, which means that no real-time subvolume is enabled.
My question to you is: what do i do in order to enable real-time
subvolume on my XFS filesystem?
If it is truly not enabled on your SuSE, then you will need to rebuild xfs
after changing CONFIG_XFS_RT. But:
penguin3:~ # zcat /proc/config.gz | grep XFS_RT
penguin3:~ # uname -a
Linux penguin3 2.6.5-7.193-debug #1 SMP Wed Jul 20 14:39:18 UTC 2005 i686 i686
This is a SLES9SP2 box, but it appears that recent SuSE kernels are RT-enabled.
Also if i understood correctly under
Linux one does not have the GRIO (guranteed rate I/O) option, this is
only available under the IRIX operating system, right? Thanks a bunch
That is basically true, yes. There is a non-free GRIOV2 product in use with
CXFS, but for your purposes, I think it is safe to say that there is no
standalone GRIO equivalent on Linux.
