Recent results

OI Scrub project provides ground work for a complete Lustre FSCK tool. Crucial to success of this tool is performance. OI Scrub has been demonstrated checking over 100K files/second on a typical MDS hardware node. In addition, OI Scrub provides a on-line mode that has been shown to add negligible system load with limited scan rates:

OI Scrub provides on-line scanning for corruption. A successful online tool should not impact system performance. This figure show the fall-off in performance from a system without OI Scrub running in the background (0 on the x-axis) through to a system with OI Scrub running as fast as possible (-1 on the x-axis.) The results from this graph indicate that negligible performance impact will be observed while running OI Scrub with Kfiles per second limited between zero and five.
