I need to suppress checking of CIFS mounts to avoid piling up IO-blocked
processes when a mount hangs. What hobbit file/program controls the "df"
command used for the disk check? The DF= and DFCMD= lines in
hobbitclient.cfg are commented "DF,DFCMD and PS are for compatibility
only, NOT USED by the Hobbit client", and sure enough when I add "-xcifs"
to those lines I still get the CIFS mounts after restarting the
I'm also not sure what to make of the fact that the "About Hobbit" page
says that all configuration is centralized, yet the hobbitclient.cfg on my
4.2.0-6 and 4.2.0-7 clients says "include
/var/lib/hobbit-client/runtime.cfg" (which exists on those machines), but
on my 4.2.0-1 server says "include /var/run/hobbitclient-runtime.cfg"
(which exists on that machine).
