How current is this information ? The article says AFS does not have Linux Kernel 2.6 support. I doubt that this is still true for current OpenAFS implementations.

Coda is supported in 2.6, but it's not ready for production. Load testing with bonnie crashes venus, the client daemon, reliably (see some report at The development seems to have stopped pretty much, with focus in the network filesystem community moving to GFS, Lustre and similar.

I did a major rewrite today; the explanations of Coda's functionality are still inadequate, but I feel this is a large improvement over the previous bulleted page. Sources are not cited but are available in the white papers found at Coda's official web site. Adam Wolbach 18:23, 21 Mar 2006 (EST)

Unique features?[edit]

"Coda has many features that are desirable for network file systems, and several features not found elsewhere..."

Are all the 9 features listed after this sentence unique to Coda? If so, please replace the period (full stop) with a colon (:). If not please put the clause about unique features as a separate sentence after the list of features. -Pgan002 07:31, 15 March 2007 (UTC)


It seems this article is very outdated. My gut feeling is that Coda just hasn't caught on, but I'm not sure if the project is still alive somewhere. QVVERTYVS (hm?) 09:46, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
