CXFS is clustered XFS, a clustered filesystem for high-
performance computing environments. CXFS allows groups of
computers to coherently share XFS filesystems among multiple
hosts and storage devices while maintaining high performance.
CXFS runs on storage area network (SAN) disks, such as Fibre
Channel. This publication documents CXFS 5 running on a SAN for
for SGI Altix systems running 64-bit Linux
with SGI Foundation Software. It assumes that you are already familiar
with the XFS file system and the XVM volume manager.
