[Gluster-users] page allocation error, CentOS-6.

We have been happily running gluster for a couple of years now, however,
as of lately we have encountered issues.

Issues are rather vague, but included a lot of messages about page
allocation failure, and spontaneous reboots of ONE of the servers (we
have four).

We are using 3.2.6, on CentOS-6, and in


it is recommended to modify "/proc/sys/vm/zone_reclaim_mode", we did
that, which seemed to stop the "page allocation errors" from appearing.
However, we still get the impression that the file system is "less
responsive" (sorry for not being more specific), and in eg.


it seems the solution is to wait for CentOS-6.4 (maybe).

Of course, our problem can be related to hardware as well, but I'm
contemplating going back to CentOS-5 instead, and wonder if there are
others that can shed some light on this issue?
