ndbcluster not production ready yet.

We tried to switch from master-slave to ndbcluster.
Boosted our performance quite some.
But at high load nodes eat up memory and start tangling.
so basically for us we put ndb online ... let the portal connect and 
first 30seconds i performed awesome.
Then nodes used up memory by replicate to each other and started to fail 
... resulting taking down the whole cluster.
(leaving it in an unstable, not recover able state .... means another 
5hours to restore a backup)
(setup was 8 db-nodes with each 4*4GB RAM   4*8GB RAM)

using ndb on test setup though ... runs stable but it uses quite some 
    when you have many changing files you need enormous amount of RAM on 
the db nodes.
    when you have many files in whole you need enormous amount of RAM on 
the db nodes on reserve or ndb locks that table (config file stuff and such)
    when you only have about 5millon files and they don't change ... no 
need for ndb ... just stick to master-slave by adding slaves to mogadm 
or loadbalance the over lvs.
