Subject Re: How often Name node fails?
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2008 16:28:11 GMT
Hi Cagdas & Michael,
our cluster works fine with no crashes so far even with more than one 
million files - we have 11 datanodes and one namenode...

Cu on the 'net,
                        Bye - bye,

                                   <<<<< André <<<< >>>>
