[ClusterLabs] SBD on shared disk

Hello Strahil,

This kind of configuration should not be recommended.
Since SBD partition need to be accessed by the cluster nodes stably/frequently.
But the other partition (for XFS file system) is probably under extreme pressure conditions, 
in that case, the SBD partition IO requests will starve to timeout.

Hello Community,

I'm preparing for my EX436 and I was wondering if there are any drawbacks if a shared LUN is split into 2 partitions and the first partition is used for SBD , while the second one for Shared File System (Either XFS for active/passive, or GFS2 for active/active).

Do you see any drawback in such implementation ?
Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
Strahil Nikolov
