\* This is a multi-host file system test example.
\* Note that an FSD can be used only from ONE host. This to make sure that
\* one host is not deleting a file that an other host is using.
\* Note: with Vdbench 5.00 not specifying specific host names in the FWD
\* will cause a nullpointer Exception.
When you start playing with thousands of files, you may get the
"Waiting for slave synchronization: "
In the next version the message text changes to:
"Waiting for slave synchronization: Building and validating file
When Vdbench internally builds the file and directory structure there
are two things that can take a while:
- Allocating about 60 bytes of memory for each file in the Java Heap,
and Java doing a lot of Garbage Collection to find all that.
- If the directory structure already exists Vdbench needs to
keep going to the directory to find out: "does the file exist", and
'How long is it".
This all can take quite a while if you're dealing with huge amounts of
