Hello people!

I have huge problems with IO wait becase dovecot configured to use maildir
is under OCFS2 1.4.  Now i have an question to OCFS2 each disk action is
really heavy becaue it has no index.

Now i am thinking in what can be done to heltp my system  to use less disk.

Looking for index and etc in dovecot i found this,   this disables the index
file on disk and leave it on ram or it disable the index files ?

If you really want to, you can also disable the index files completely by
appending :INDEX=MEMORY

I am only trying to get dovecot to work faster. Right now we have to waing
some seconds to dovecot list all emails or read an email.

I am also thinking in right index to an NFS but i don't know if this makes
any diferences in performance.

Thanks to all!

I use 3 servres wrinting on OCFS2  one is mailman, and other two are to
email, I have ipvs to load balance the conections.
