Or do I have enough to ask the question?
I'm trying to prepare a question regarding an xfsdump INTERRUPT error I'm getting, and I'm trying to follow the guidelines for reporting such issues here:
But these last two instructions I'm having a problem finding the information on how to generate:
xfs_info output on the filesystem in question (I tried xfs_info /dev/sdc, but it keeps saying for each drive that it's not a mounted xfs system IIRC)
dmesg output showing all error messages and stack traces
Then you need to describe your workload that is causing the problem, and a demonstration of the bad behavior that is occurring. If it is a performance problem, then 30s - 1 minute samples of:
1. iostat -x -d -m 5
2. vmstat 5
Do I run this simultaneously while xfstools are working? I'm also not sure what's meant by describe your workload. Can someone step me through this?
Please excuse my n00bness.
