[Pacemaker] problems with cman + corosync + pacemaker in debian

Actually I'm studying this technology. This is only a test. I'm trying to
understand all possible configuration and at the moment I have some
problems to understand the differences among file systems. Now I'm trying
to use ocfs2 and it seems to work well but what is the best alternative?

My big question is when should I use one rather than another one? I know
glusterfs and, If I'm right, it doesn't need drbd but it is slower than
gfs2 and ocfs2. If I understood you can have the best performance using
ocfs2, so I'm trying to use it. In case split-brain happens what is the
And with mysql. To realize two node active/active there are many ways. you
can use mysql master/master ndb replication or put data folder in a drbd
partition on ocfs2 with the option "external locking" activated. what is
the fastest and the safest way? in the case of split-brain happen what is
the best? in my opinion the best is drbd. maybe you will loose

As you can see, at the moment I only need to make experiences to understand
these concepts.

Thank you very much for your help.
