KernelTrap: Distributed Lock Manager
May 18, 2005, 05:30 (0 Talkback[s])
"David Teigland posted some updated patches for implementing a
distributed lock manager. In an earlier thread David explained,
'many distributed/cluster applications use a dlm for inter-process
synchronization where processes may live on different machines.
(GFS and CLVM are two examples which our group also develop; GFS
using the dlm from the kernel and CLVM from userspace...)'
