right, the oracle system uses a second "low latency" bus to 
manage locking information (at the block level) via a
distributed lock manager.  (but this is slightly different
albeit related to a clustered file system and OS-managed
locking, eg)

Something like a Global File System?


(I believe some other company did develop it some time in the past; hmm, 
probably the guys doing LVM stuff?).

Anyway the idea is that two machines have same filesystem mounted and they 
share it. The locking I believe is handled by communication between computers 
using "host to host" SCSI commands.

I never used it, I've only heard about it from a friend who used to work with 
it in CERN.
