OK, I don’t have anything you would call ‘solid’ as far as numbers go. Here is a recent command that was run that I was told initially took about 3 minutes:

/usr/bin/eos -b -j ‘attr -r set sys.acl=g:5063:rx!d!u,u:54016:rwx+d+u,u:55630:rwx+d+u,u:48720:rwx+d+u,u:51868:rwx+d+u,u:43841:rwx+d+u,u:52330:rwx+d+u,u:10385:rwx+d+u,u:43729:rwx+d+u,u:56430:rwx+d+u,u:43309:rwx+d+u,u:2249:rwx+d+u,u:55405:rwx+d+u,u:51136:rwx+d+u,u:51615:rwx+d+u,u:56283:rwx+d+u,u:52081:rwx+d+u,u:51408:rwx+d+u,u:44258:rwx+d+u,u:52937:rwx+d+u,u:3278:rwx+d+u,u:51961:rwx+d+u,u:47113:rwx+d+u,u:48257:rwx+d+u,u:7586:rwx+d+u,u:50002:rwx+d+u,u:50062:rwx+d+u,u:51893:rwx+d+u,u:5524:rwx+d+u,u:11912:rwx+d+u,u:44750:rwx+d+u,u:15867:rwx+d+u,u:53986:rwx+d+u,u:48968:rwx+d+u,u:55957:rwx+d+u,u:45481:rwx+d+u,u:44456:rwx+d+u,u:48504:rwx+d+u,u:13281:rwx+d+u,u:44650:rwx+d+u,u:1291:rwx+d+u,u:47155:rwx+d+u,u:10222:rwx+d+u,u:6398:rwx+d+u,u:48622:rwx+d+u,u:1320:rwx+d+u,u:51338:rwx+d+u,u:6345:rwx+d+u,u:44851:rwx+d+u,u:50647:rwx+d+u,u:55854:rwx+d+u,u:2908:rwx+d+u,u:7027:rwx+d+u,u:45508:rwx+d+u,u:44788:rwx+d+u,u:42623:rwx+d+u,u:13175:rwx+d+u,u:47534:rwx+d+u,u:12665:rwx+d+u,u:51144:rwx+d+u,u:7333:rwx+d+u,u:42717:rwx+d+u,u:45130:rwx+d+u,u:53863:rwx+d+u,u:52536:rwx+d+u,u:43903:rwx+d+u,u:42228:rwx+d+u,u:51474:rwx+d+u,u:43648:rwx+d+u /eos/uscms/store/user/lpcsusyhad’

I was also told the command would return pretty much right away with the in-memory namespace.

I should also add that when the command was re-run with ‘time’ in front of it, the response was almost instantaneous, because I assume at that point all the metadata was cached.

Also for your consideration, this is one of the largest hierarchies we have. It’s 1.57M files and 5744 dirs using about 243TB of space. When I ran ‘find -f --count’ it took about 50 sec to return. When I ran ‘find --count’ again, it was again quicker.

To be fair, no one is really complaining, just remarking about the difference in speed and whether that is as it should be.

Thanks,

Dan
