I listed a few directories without blocks for longer periods of time as with my last testing. Good. Copying a huge file from AFS was terribly slow (even for my DSL connection), but it steadily progressed and I was able to abort it without deadlocking or crashing. Copying a 16MB file to AFS blocked a parallel "ls -l" on the same directory I was copying to, but it eventually finished. The file was not corrupted. Great.
I did more testing from University to both of the AFS' I had been testing before. Copying a few MB from AFS and copying a 16MB file to AFS was both fine (showing 6MB/s while copying).
Trying to copy a 512MB file to AFS locked all AFS after two seconds that it was showing copy rates of 40MB/s (while the network is only 100Mbit/s). After increasing the AFS cache size to 512MB, almost all of the file got copied before AFS would lock. With a cache of 1GB, the file got copied without a deadlock or corruption. (All this is on MP, I have not tried to disable all but one core.)
Rebooting the machine after having done nothing but the successful copy of the 512MB file, I got: Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode cpuid = 3; apic id = 05 fault virtual address = 0x290 fault code = supervisor read data, page not present instruction pointer = 0x20:0xffffffff805959ae stack pointer = 0x28:0xffffff807500c6c0 frame pointer = 0x28:0xffffff807500c6e0 code segment = base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b = DPL 0, pres 1, long 1, def32 0, gran 1 processor eflags = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0 current process = 1944 (afsd) trap number = 12 panic: page fault cpuid = 3
Overall, the only problems I got during my tests were copying files larger than the cache size and shutting down afsd. So far, AFS seems to become usable for me (even on MP).
Thanks again, Jan Henrik
