Lustre - a high-performance cluster file system
A high-performance file system designed for clusters.
Lustre® is a high-performance, massively-scalable, POSIX-compliant
network file system designed for the world’s largest high-performance
compute clusters. Lustre is under active development from Cluster
Lustre filesystems are made up of multiple servers typically
distributed across multiple nodes. Lustre clients can contact these
server nodes over multiple high-speed network fabrics via LNET, the
Lustre NETworking system. Clients then present the filesystem at a
A filesystem is comprised of a MDT , MetaData Target, which stores
directory and file meta-information, and a series of OSTs , Object
Storage Targets, which hold the file data. There is typically not a
1:1 mapping of a file on disk and what is presented as a file on a
Lustre and LNET are implemented as a series of kernel modules, for both
servers and clients. LNET networks are defined in the modprobe.conf
file on all nodes. Lustre and LNET make extensive use of /proc files
for making system data available, for example
to show the local LNET Network Interfaces.
