Oracle Clustering File System (OCFS)
presented by: Mark Fasheh, Oracle Corporation's Linux Development Team
OCFS is a clustered database file system written at Oracle for the
Linux kernel (as a file system module), and released under the GNU GPL.
The presentation will describe the basics of OCFS, including on
disk layout, advantages of extent based systems, locking strategies,
change notification, journaling/node recovery, and database optimizations.
Lay out the reasoning behind our design choices, what we've learned from
those, and future OCFS improvements.
Mark Fasheh has taken an active role in the Linux Community since being
introduced to the OS during his freshman year at UCLA. While there,
he helped found the UCLA Linux Users group and spent three years
advocating Linux use as the LUG President. Before Oracle, Mark spent time

software for IBM. Since joining Oracle Mark has taken an active role in
