Compressed Volumes with clustering

We are planning on having a 5 node cluster with our SAN system. I am in the midst of converting from trad to NSS to prepare for the migration. Are there any problems with CLustering NSS volumes that are compressed or should you have un-compressed NSS volumes?

Thanks
Cynthia

Re: Compressed Volumes with clustering

It makes no difference to clustering.

Re: Compressed Volumes with clustering

From a technical point of view, there is no difference in having
compression or not. Against that there is the point of the cluster
and the reason why you have the thing in the first place. Personally
I never put compression on a cluster, the cluster is there to provide
high availability and anything that has the potential to reduce that
should be avoided, and I consider compression to detract from the
stability (in the long term)
