Subject Re: pnfs support?

I’m a little surprised we don’t see more mentions of Lustre et al in the IaaS space, but
I guess the HPC crowd don’t want hypervisors getting in the way.

Personally I’m quite happy with kvm+rbd. CephFS sounds nice but I can only hold my breath
for so long...

Anyways - seems easy to add support ("-o minorversion=1”)[1] but it’s not clear to me
how to tell the minor version the server’s running - looks like nfsstat only reports major
