    I'm setting up a webserver farm with 3 machines. 2 will be frontends
with apache and one will be the storage server. 
    I was thinking about using NFS to do that, but maybe CODA will be a
better solution? 
    I read about it and though that the client side cache will do great
in this case. 
    The only problem I can see is that if for some reason the server
stops responding the client will disconect from the server. But that's
better than NFS that would crash the whole system. With this the
"cached" content in the client side will still be served.
    Any other feature that will helpme with this environment? Any
    In the mailling list  archive I found some little benchmarks,
between nfs and coda. But only bonnie and untar linux. There's any
benchmark that went more deeply ?
