Formating a volume


#1

Poll: Are you confident enough with your RDBMS cookbook of choice to
format a volume as part of a recipe?

I’ve been LVM striping + formatting xfs quite happily. Just finished some
autoscalable nfs+ebs work too! Nothing to do with rdbms though. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info. I am more interested in the RDBMS use case.
Scarce, persistant data that is “mission critical”. I just formatted a
500GB EBS volume with ext3 and it took about 30 minutes. That’s the
kind of task I’d rather do interactively. How does XFS performance for
bringing a new volume online effect the chef-client run time?

A lot.

I just formatted a 1TB EBS with XFS in < 30 seconds.
