Thanks for the info Andreas.

For the benefit of the Lustre community, could you briefly explain how the Lustre development is done at both Oracle and Whamcloud? Is the Oracle release the "Official Lustre release"?

I've been using Lustre on our clusters for about 4 years now. I began with release 1.6.3 that was developed by Cluster File Systems (aka CFS) at that time. Later Sun bought CFS then Oracle bought Sun and now there is Whamcloud involved. Not always easy to follow.
