<Hyperbyte>
Oh hello!
09:58
Say, I notice a bunch of sftp-server processes on my terminal server using a lot of IO/CPU. Would it be more efficient to use NFS mounted home directories, or is SSHFS the way to go?
10:06
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: nfs would be way more efficient, yes
10:07
sshfs is just easier to set up, and at one point in the past nfs had instabilities

<Hyperbyte>
OK, good to know.
10:28
Thanks!
10:29
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: if you make it work, a small how-to would be helpful for others...
10:29
I think we also have "ltsp-config nfs" which helps a bit in /etc/exports

Hmmm... I set up NFS, installed nfs-common in the chroot, ran ltsp-update-image and added a FSTAB_1 line to lts.conf
11:44
I believe there was also an NFS_SERVER or NFS_HOME configuration option, but didn't find it in the lts.conf manpage.
11:45
I can write something on the wiki about it. I do have another something weird with a virtual PXE client (I use it that for remote testing).
11:45
It always says after I log out "A new version of the system is available". Is this a known issue?
12:02
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: try to manually mount NFS from a client, either ltsp or not. Does that work?
12:02
It's not a known issue to always ask for a reboot, no
13:01
<Hyperbyte>
alkisg, NFS? NDB you mean?
13:01
<alkisg>
Hyperbyte: NFS; isn't that what is failing for you?
13:02
<Hyperbyte>
No NFS is working great, I just set it up. :-)
13:02
I was just telling you the steps I took.
13:03
<alkisg>
Ah, you said about NFS_SERVER/NFS_HOME etc and I thought it wasn't working
13:03
<Hyperbyte>
Since you mentioned I could do a write-up, I figured for the record (irclogs) I'd leave it here.
13:03
<alkisg>
Yeah, nfs-common and FSTAB_1 is all there is to it
13:03
!nfs
13:03
<ltsp>
nfs: to enable NFS home directories for localapps and fat clients, install nfs-kernel-server etc on your server, and put this inlts.conf: FSTAB_1="server:/home /home nfs defaults,nolock 0 0"
13:03
<Hyperbyte>
!forget nfs
13:03
<ltsp>
The operation succeeded.
13:03
<alkisg>
...it should also mention ltsp-config nfs and nfs-common in the chroot
13:04
<Hyperbyte>
!learn nfs as to enable NFS home directories for localapps and fat clients, install nfs-kernel-server etc on your server, and put this inlts.conf: FSTAB_1="server:/home /home nfs defaults,nolock 0 0"
13:04
<ltsp>
The operation succeeded.
13:04
<Hyperbyte>
!forget nfs
13:04
<ltsp>
The operation succeeded.
13:04
<Hyperbyte>
!learn nfs as to enable NFS home directories for localapps and fat clients, install nfs-kernel-server on your server, nfs-common on your client (don't forget ltsp-update-image), and put this in lts.conf: FSTAB_1="server:/home /home nfs defaults,nolock 0 0"
13:04
<ltsp>
The operation succeeded.
13:05
<alkisg>
Did you use ltsp-config nfs, or did you manually configure exports?
13:07
<Hyperbyte>
Manually of course.
13:08
<alkisg>
Ah sorry I was wrong, ltsp-config nfs is for nfs root, not for nfs home anyway
13:08
So that should be mentioned in the factoid as well, what to put in /etc/exports...
13:08
Ideally, ltsp-config nfs-home would be able to do all that :D
