Name        : gfs2-utils
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 3.1.7
Release     : 1.fc21
URL         : https://fedorahosted.org/cluster/wiki/HomePage
Summary     : Utilities for managing the global file system (GFS2)
Description :
The gfs2-utils package contains a number of utilities for creating,
checking, modifying, and correcting any inconsistencies in GFS2
file systems.

Update Information:

gfs2-utils 3.1.7 is a new upstream release. Notable changes include:

mkfs.gfs2 now allocates and writes resource groups and journal blocks in-order, improving the time it takes to create a gfs2 file system. Journals are laid out as single extents; when the journal size is larger than the resource group size, the initial resource groups are sized specifically to accommodate contiguous journals.

fsck.gfs2 now makes use of read-ahead to speed up inode processing which can improve the performance of fsck.gfs2 runs for certain workloads. It also includes timing and logging instrumentation in order to help debug and monitor performance changes in fsck.gfs2. Handling of journal indirect block corruption has also been improved.

Many bug fixes and improvements across the board based on testing, user feedback and static analysis results. 

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use
su -c 'yum update gfs2-utils' at the command line.
