Does anyone have experience with Coda? Would you be prepared to
demonstrate setting up Coda on two machines running a 2.6 kernel, at a
CLUG meeting? I can supply machines, and help with preparing the
demonstration. My main goal is to understand how Coda fits together,
and to develop some idea of how reliable it is under load, especially
when the intervening network is slow/congested/unreliable.
So a possible programme would be:
1) Walk through setup of a Coda filesystem between two (or three)
2) Demonstrate use of Coda in an ideal environment: one set of clients
accessing Samba on one host, one set of clients accessing Samba on the
other host, with the two Coda hosts on the same 100Mbps Ethernet,
3) Modify above demonstration by introducing errors (reduced speed,
dropped frames, dropped carrier) on the Ethernet network, and
4) Write up our observations about the reliability of Coda given the
environment we (were|will be) testing in.
Ideally, I'd like to have this demonstration ready for the November or
January CLUG meeting, to fill about 1 hour.
Would anyone be interested in seeing such a demonstration?
