comment How does “caching” work when your storage is based on a remote file system?
Yeah, its more sector dependent. Your OS does have a choice to use it, but the disk usually knows what to do.

comment How do distributed filesystems differ from cluster filesystems?
Okay, a distributed file system is a file on the network. A clustered file system is any file system that is "mounted" to multiple computers. So from the definition above, you can see that a distributed file system can be a clustered file system because they can be mounted on multiple machines. The reason we use this is so that a cluster of machines can serve the same data (which is on the) clustered filesystem (which can also be a distributed file system). Note that a file system can be redundant, avoiding data loss if a "disk" dies.

comment How do distributed filesystems differ from cluster filesystems?
Yes, it should be immediate. But then again, there are some overhead things that each system has to do, so not instantaneously, but rather, very quickly and immediate.

comment How do distributed filesystems differ from cluster filesystems?
A clustered FS is able to be mounted on multiple computers. For example, a drive may have multi USB support, but yes. Most of the time it is done over the network. By mounting, I mean it's virtually like an attached disk to the desktop.

comment Do I need more PSU power or new GPU?
Yeah, that is plenty of power. It looks like your PSU has a dual-rail, meaning that the degradation is much slower. I would check for new drivers for your GPUs, etc.

comment Is an off the shelf ADSL modem router a 'true' router?
No, not the physical connection itself, more of the device's ability to connect. Well, OSI has 7 layers, a device can implement a certain amount, starting from layer 1. Layer 1 is usually repeaters, Layer 2 are switches, Layer 3 are routers.

OSI reference models are solely how communication is done within the device. For example, an OSI level-2 device (a switch) is most likely able to communicate with an OSI level-3 device (a router). Any OSI level-3 or below device is able to communicate to the internet. Another example is connecting two OSI level-3 devices together, which would present problems if incorrectly connected. So in this case, it really only matters in inter-connecting devices.

VLAN can be part of a subnet, but subnetting networks really just means of extending the available IP addresses for use, or organizing your network, etc.
