Hi Wim

Thanks for your reply. I am really new to OCFS, This is my first project in
using OCFS. I have installed the RAC server with 5 nodes, total Space for
Oracle DB will 8TB, I have arround 50 mount points, but only 2 mount points
with @1GB size are having this problem,I dont mind to loose the space, but
Another questions is, will the percentage used space increase in the future?

well you don't say how big the fielsystem is...

by default you lose like 4 or 5mb just at first mount
then another 4 or 5 mb per node that mounts
so if you hve 4 nodes you can already be looking at 20-30mb of space out
the door.

when you create tons of files in a directory, the space of those entrie
is not released until the dir is deleted etc.

there was a bug in 1.0.9-xx where we had soem sort of a leak when
creating and removing files often ina directory but..

anyways, in geneal people have many gb's of space, not a few mb or a few
100mb, if that's the case, I don't really care.
