Our standard answer is to use PVFS1 if you are paranoid about
stability. We still find the occasional bug in PVFS1, but it's seen a
lot more use and testing than PVFS2. However, PVFS2 has several
advantages and should give better performance. We think PVFS2 is in
pretty good shape, but we'd be foolish to claim it was bug free.
I'll leave the final decision up to you, but you probably won't go
wrong either way.
