comment Can I mount a read-only btrfs volume across multiple machines?
I've wondered about using ceph in this way, after all, it is a real cluster file system. You can run it with just one server.

Have a look at Ceph? en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceph_(storage) this would let all of your servers use that storage.

comment Sun Netra 240 not booting to ALOM
It's been too long, but would you need a null modern adapter? Or does the rj-45/serial cable handle that? I have used serial to Bluetooth adapters as well.

comment Is is possible to live sync two network drives?
The Ceph clustered file file system can do this. But in this case, you might want a solution from your NAS vendor. Details are always useful.

comment High Memory 64bit server, not using all ram
Yes, you are showing 0.1%wa, so it's not like you are wasting time hitting the disk, if you want to get more work out of these systems, have a look at a good book on tuning, and figure out where the bottleneck is, because it's not the disk.

comment Can I mount a BTRFS snapshot of a live filesystem?
[That is a normal use][1], well, mounting multiple snapshots of the same fs, I think you cannot have them rw, but I wouldn't even bet on that. Give it a try [1]: btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/FAQ#What_is_a_snapshot.3F
