Hello fellow GPFS Users!

I'm seeking any advice or accounts of how sites are using 4K sector disk drives today.  I know that GPFS does support 4K sector drives.

Are there any known issues (e.g. performance, interoperability, etc) with using 512 byte sector drives and 4K sector drives in the same file system?

Any advice is greatly appreciated,
