clusters with more than 100 GFS/GFS2 file systems fail to recover when a node leaves the cluster. The cluster appears to be "locked up", with cluster/lvm operations stalling indefinitely
cluster with 100+ GFS2 filesystems across clustered LVM. The cluster will randomly start "hanging" (indefinitely waiting) on various LVM commands, a rebooted node is unable to mount any of the volumes and "hangs" at the lvm monitor stage. When this happens, other nodes report the cluster is quorate but their lvm commands fail to return as well.
