Dear All,


I have run through lfs find on the entire file system multiple times and the result is an empty list for this OST.

Any ideas on how I can get around this problem? Any alternate way to get the list of files on an OST?


Can I use the “lester” tool on Lustre v1.8.7, will that help me?


Thank you,

Subject: [HPDD-discuss] lfs_migrate on an OST results in zero files inspite of being 60% used


Dear All,


I have yet another interesting thing happening and not able to understand.


One of the OST’s that I want to migrate the data off of is 58% full and when I run the migrate script on the entire lustre file system, it only found few files migrated only couple of Gigs and now it does not find any files to migrate. Any idea how to interpret this? In the past when I was migrating an OST data it took a long long time because there literally millions of file to go through. Same is the situation here but every run of migration script just finished without moving anything anymore.


Any insight into this is greatly appreciated.


Best Regards,
