GPFS on  AIX Clusters; High Performance File System Administration Simplified

With the newest release of General Parallel File System for AIX (GPFS), release 1.4, the range of supported hardware platforms has been extended to include AIX RS/6000 workstations that are not part of an RS/6000 SP system. This is the first time that GPFS has been offered to non-RS/6000 SP users. Running GPFS outside of the RS/6000 SP does require that HACMP/ES is configured and that the RS/6000 systems within the HACMP cluster that will be part of the GPFS cluster be concurrently connected to an SSA disk subsystem.

This redbook focuses on the planning, installation and implementation of GPFS in a cluster environment. The tasks to be covered include the installation and configuration of HACMP to support the GPFS cluster, implementation of the GPFS software, and developing application programs that use GPFS. A troubleshooting chapter is added in case any problems arise.
