I'd just like to get some views and opinions on Linux Clustering. I have a
client who deals with a huge database and the Intel P II 400Mhz with a RAID
XX and 384MB memory is not cutting it.
Also the machine has just cacked it with a drive failing and errors into the
database. Not sure on the RAID but if it was causing data errors then I
doubt it's raid 1 or 5..
What I was thinking was to create a linux cluster and from what I heard
needs big bandwidth between them so I thought instead of 100Base-T I'd see
what fibre would be like...??? I have no idea if it'll be better or not or
just a waste...
Has anybody done anything similar or saw problems with this idea??? I need a
super fast and very redundant system.
Management were thinking of going AIX or something.
Anybody seen or heard of performance from these type of systems?
