Is that really solved by partitioning of the ctdb cluster? I could
imagine that if you share the same file space you will see broken
locking by subcluster A not seeing the locks of subcluster B. If you
separate out the filespaces, you don't win much except less nodes
beating the same files. Does that really gain enough performance?
