Any comment on this as a means of maintaining up to date network mirrors?
I had not heard of this before, but it sounds interesting in concept,
without knowing more about the machine load it introduces, etc.
Yoke Linux Kernel Driver 0.3.6
The Yoke driver provides transparant mirroring between disk
partitions and other block devices (such as loop and nbd). It
differs from the kernel RAID0 facility in that it is a virtual device
with no interface of its own. To start mirroring one device to
another requires no prior setup, just "yadd /dev/yd0
yet_another_device" and go. The yet_another_device will become
another facet of the existing mirror and you can still read and write
to it perfectly normally, with the difference that all changes will
be seen and reflected in/from all the other mirror facets.
Changes 0.3.6: Man page! Clone utility.
