[Linux-cluster] any best practice for number of new GFS journal to add?

The number of journals you have is dependant on the number of cluster
members using that GFS filesystem, not the size of it. As I understand it,
you may have to tweak the size of the journals if you're doing a lot of I/O.
At a minimum, you're going to need N journals, where N is the number of
cluster members using the GFS volume. I generally create N+1 journals in
case I need to add a host quickly and I might forget to add a journal
