Subject Re: slow nfs = reboot all hosts (((

Instead of commenting 'echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger' and also disabling your HA at the
same time, perhaps there's a way to tweak the timeouts to be more generous with lazy NFS servers.

Can you go through the logs and see what is happening before the reboot? I am not sure exactly
which timeout the script cares about, worth investigating.
