The async journal commit feature (bug 19128) and the cancel lock before replay feature (bug 16774) are disabled by default.


Severity: normal
Description: Reduce group prealloc size and skip groups with little free space.

Severity: normal
Description: Fix issue with proc_remove.

Severity: normal
Description: Disable delayed allocation by default for ext4-based ldiskfs on RHEL5.5

Severity: normal
Description: A mount failure can corrupt the slab. This is a bug in the latest RHEL5.5 kernel and only ext4-based ldiskfs is impacted.

Severity: normal
Description: With peer health detection, o2iblnd makes only one attempt to reconnect which is not enough with nodes running lustre 1.6 because of proto version mismatch. Fix o2iblnd to retry one more time.

Severity: normal
Description: add mount option to disable mb_cache since it can cause slowdown.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Quiet some LNET messages

Severity: enhancement
Description: Add OFED 1.5.1 support

Severity: enhancement
Description: The peer health code lacked some important debugging info in lnd_query code paths. We've added necessary debug prints, not just for bug 21678, but also for future troubleshooting.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Update RHEL5.5 kernel to 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5 and OEL5.5 kernel to 2.6.18-194.3.1.0.1.el5.

Severity: enhancement
Description: using inkernel OFED stack for rhel5 & oel5.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Add "lfs_migrate" script from manual into lustre/scripts and RPMs
Details: lfs_migrate does a "poor man's" migration of files from their current OST layout to a new OST layout as chosen by the MDS.

Severity: normal
Description: mds_orphan_add_link()) error linking orphan to PENDING
Details: quota limits might disallow linking orphans to PENDING when unlinking a file - temporary raise threads' privileges when processing unlinks.

Severity: enhancement
Description: add conf-param -d option to remove permanent settings.
Details: Add the ability to remove permanent lctl conf_param settings. (Previously conf_param settings could only be changed, not removed.) This also provides a method to change failover nid locations. Improve lctl man page.

Severity: enhancement
Description: add list_param to b1_8 and add "-R" option to list params recursively

Severity: enhancement
Description: lfs quota output is not very convenient for awk/sed-parsing
Details: Some positions in lfs quota output table could be empty or non-empty which made it hard to parse it with scripts, now a dash is put instead of space where there is not supposed to be any data.

Severity: enhancement
Description: fix obdfilter-survey script to work properly with remote oss-s

Severity: enhancement
Description: add new OBDFILTER_SURVEY test suite

Severity: enhancement
Description: add new multiple mount protection (MMP) test suite

Severity: enhancement
Description: add support for async journal commit in echo client

Severity: enhancement
Description: allow userland programs to include <lustre/lustre_idl.h> from stardard include directories

Severity: enhancement
Description: The prune-icache-use-trylock is no longer needed now that the patch from bug 20008 is landed.

Severity: normal
Description: The shrink grant feature is still active on the client although the connect flag is not set.

Severity: normal
Description: Don't leak grant space if the write failed with quota exceeded.

Severity: normal
Description: Don't consume grant space twice on recoverable resent.

Severity: normal
Description: a race condition could lead to SIGBUS being sent to an application using mmap-ped files from Lustre
Details: truncate_complete_page implementation for the patchless client could arbitrarily unset PG_Uptodate flag for a page being kicked from the page cache, an uptodate check right after a readpage call in filemap_fault could fail because of that as though the page read had been unsuccessful.

Severity: normal
Description: dlm lock slab shrinking is not efficient
Details: The dlm_locks slab can grow significantly and consumes a lot of memory on the server. Set a hardlimit to grant_plan.

Severity: normal
Description: Lustre does not do 1MB IOs to HW RAID
Details: Bump MAX_PHYS/HW_SEGMENTS and SG_ALL to 256 in the RHEL5 kernel. This is what we do already for SLES kernels.

Severity: normal
Description: bump maximum number of phys/hw segments in the SLES11 kernel until s/g chaining works properly.

Severity: normal
Description: LSI Fusion MPT driver hacks to improve performance
Details: Set CONFIG_FUSION_MAX_SGE to 256 for RHEL5

Severity: enhancement
Description: increase default md stripe_cache_size to 16k

Severity: normal
Description: don't handle security.capability xattr
Details: CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES is enabled by default on SLES11. This results in additional getxattr calls, causing VBR testfailures as well as a preformance drop when writing.

Severity: normal
Description: obdfilter-survey is no longer working
Details: revert patch from bug 20355 to resolve an issue with lctl --threads not working correctly with $(PTHREAD_LIBS) being linked to lctl.

Severity: normal
Description: ll_shrink_cache does not handle __GFP_FS properly

Severity: normal
Description: lfs getstripe shows wrong info for directories
Details: Set correct LOVEA default values for filesystem-wide.

Severity: normal
Description: FSX checksum false positves due to mmap IO
Details: Use OBD_FL_MMAP flag for IOs on a memory mapped file. Do not print checksum errors, if the flag is set on a request.

Severity: normal
Description: file operations after eviction have successful return values
Details: use vfs ->flush callback to return any pending async errors on file close.

Severity: normal
Description: mdsrate fails to write after 1.3+M files opened
Details: decrease memory usage on clients by recycling dentries and inodes.

Severity: normal
Description: obdfilter-survey gives unreasonably high numbers
Details: Wait for all threads to complete when running test_brw.

Severity: normal
Description: do not set lustre read_only device when server umount and keep client records for recoverable ones

Severity: normal
Description: move sync_on_lock_cancel tunable to the obdfilter layer
Details: move the tunable to trigger a journal flush on lock cancel from the ost layer to the obdfilter layer. This tunable is useful when using the async journal commit feature.

Severity: normal
Description: exp->exp_nid_stats == NULL in filter_tally()
Details: fix race with per-nid stats by delaying procfs cleanup until exp_refcount == 0

Severity: normal
Description: extent lock cancellation on client can keep the cpu busy for too long.

Severity: normal
Description: Do not fail OST activation when a llog is not found, just issue an error message.

Severity: normal
Description: Don't enable extents by default for MDT.

Severity: normal
Description: Protect bitfield access to ptlrpc_request's rq_flags, since the AT code can access it concurrently while sending early replies.

Severity: normal
Description: Disable lockless truncate by default since it is sometimes flawed and causes the write_disjoint test to fail.

Severity: normal
Description: OSSs which don't have the patch from bug 20278 can trigger an LBUG on 1.8 clients.

Severity: enhancement
Description: don't print message to the console when we have not managed to cancel all locks.

Severity: normal
Description: The MDS fails to synchronize OSTs which registered with the MGS after the MDT. The problem is that OBD_NOTIFY_CREATE events are raised too early and thus discarded by the MDT stack. The fix consists of issuing OBD_NOTIFY_CREATE event in the lov layer.

Severity: normal
Description: Fix race when the ping evictor and a service thread execute target_recovery_check_and_stop() concurrently.

Severity: normal
Description: quota broadcast can trigger a LBUG on the MDT if there are inactive OSCs.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Resetting the lov_objid values to last_id reported by the OST during orphan recovery is incorrect and can cause the same objects to be allocated twice.

Severity: enhancement
Description: "weak-modules" support
Details: Implement "weak-modules" support which enables kernel modules to be used with any kernel that implements the same kABI. In order to achieve this modules are now installed in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/updates/kernel on all distributions.

Severity: enhancement
Description: add writeconf as mount option

Severity: enhancement
Description: produce debuginfo packages for SLES.

Severity: enhancement
Description: add failover nidlist to the import proc file.

Severity: enhancement
Description: fix LUSTRE_SEQ_MAX_WIDTH for interoperability between 1.8 clients and 2.0 servers.

Severity: enhancement
Description: lfs find -s does not work correctly because of a bug in find_value_cmp().

Severity: normal
Description: ll_read_ahead_page() must validate the dlm lock before using it.

Severity: normal
Description: Prevent failover nids from registering with MGS first.

Severity: normal
Description: fix lock inversion in ll_setattr_raw().

Severity: normal
Description: object allocation is not balanced across OSTs.
Details: osc_precreate() should return 0, if there are enough objects left.

Changes from v1.8.2 to v1.8.3

Support for networks:

  • socklnd - any kernel supported by Lustre™
  • qswlnd - Qsnet kernel modules 5.20 and later
  • openiblnd - IbGold 1.8.2
  • o2iblnd - OFED 1.1, 1.2.0, 1.2.5, 1.3, 1.4.1 and 1.4.2
  • viblnd - Voltaire ibhost 3.4.5 and later
  • ciblnd - Topspin 3.2.0
  • iiblnd - Infiniserv 3.3 + PathBits patch
  • gmlnd - GM 2.1.22 and later
  • mxlnd - MX 1.2.10 or later
  • ptllnd - Portals 3.3 / UNICOS/lc 1.5.x, 2.0.x

Support for kernels:

  • 2.6.16.60-0.42.8 (SLES 10)
  • 2.6.27.39-0.3.1 (SLES11, i686 & x84_64 only)
  • 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5 (RHEL 5)
  • 2.6.18-164.11.1.0.1.el5 (OEL 5)

Client support for unpatched kernels: (see Patchless Client)

  • 2.6.16 - 2.6.30 vanilla (kernel.org)

Recommended e2fsprogs version: 1.41.10-sun2

The async journal commit feature (bug 19128) and the cancel lock before replay feature (bug 16774) are disabled by default.

Severity: normal
Description: fix for a race condition in linux quotas implementation
Details: dq_flags(struct dquot) access is not properly locked which could lead to certain inconsistencies when accessing it using non-atomic bit operations like __set_bit in do_set_dqblk. This patch replaces non-atomic __set_bit calls with atomic set_bit calls.

Severity: normal
Description: initialize the child_res_id for OPEN lock
Details: in mds_open, initialize the child_res_id before enqueuing the OPEN lock for the child inode, then to avoid senting wrong ldlm_res_id to client.

Severity: normal
Description: lst: check # of remained RPCs before aborting
Details: lstcon_rpc_trans_postwait() calls lstcon_rpc_trans_abort() only when the transaction is timeout, so if we got "end_session" to interrupt waiting on transaction, then we can hit the assertion failure ASSERTION(crpc->crp_stamp != 0)

Severity: normal
Description: Suppress "changing the import ..." warning.
Details: This warning will always be printed when the MDT reconnects to an OST after the MDT is restarted. There is nothing wrong here and more importantly there is nothing the admin should do or care about so I'm moving the warning to D_HA.

Severity: normal
Description: Use INFO/WARN instead of WARN/ERROR for the slow messages.
Details: We should use INFO/WARN instead of WARN/ERROR for the slow messages. Not only is there no real error here but it fixes an annoying quirk of the message formatting. With the old levels you would see the messages formatted differently based on the time.

Severity: normal
Description: Computing result of unsigned variable may < 0.

Severity: major
Description: allow multiple instances of the same nid in NID hash
Details: Case of multiple separate clients from the same NID (as with liblustre) is legitimate and so we should allow multiple instances of the same NID in nid hash.

Severity: normal
Description: rely on pings to issue reconnects
Details: Don't wake up pinger on reconnect failures and rely on regular pings to trigger the next reconnection. Please note that the pinger already uses a smaller interval if the import is disconnected.

Severity: normal
Description: print more debug info for timedout ZC-req
Details: 1. output more information for timedout ZC-req and partial received connection
2. close connection for timedout ZC-req
3. always send ZC_ACK on non-blocking connection(BULK_IN)

Severity: normal
Description: remove lock acquisition during holding spinlock
Details: in ras_update, "lov_get_info" could be called during increasing readahead windows, which tries to get the mutex lock "lov_lock" while holding the spin_lock "ras_lock", then causes system lockup.

Severity: normal
Description: ASSERTION(cli->cl_avail_grant >= 0) failed
Details: This patch tries to address several issues:
1. osc_init_grant(): calculate avail_grant according to recovery status.
2. osc_reconnect(): request grant should include cl_dirty.
3. filter_grant(): beside server reboot, we should also grant the requested amount in case of normal reconnect.
4. round-up grant amount instead of round-down, otherwise client would still have situation that dirty > granted.

Severity: normal
Description: Use CNETERR in specific places in the portal's LNET driver

Severity: normal
Description: include last created object in precreate slow case

Severity: normal
Description: don't do rep-ack if not created anything
Details: mds_open currently always put a lock into a rep-ack regardless if something was created or not. This is pointless and only creates needless contention. In fact the entire idea was to do this for real creates as a recovery protection.

Severity: normal
Description: Spurious error messages from smp_processor_id() on preemptible kernel
Details: Disable a preemption by grabbing the lock in fs_trace_get_tcd() first. The function fs_trace_get_tcd() was moved up.

Severity: normal
Description: 2.6.31-fc12 patchless client support.

Severity: normal
Description: give the BUILD_TESTS love to ldiskfs as well
Details: Because ldiskfs re-uses so (too?) much of the lustre auto* goop we need to stub the BUILD_TESTS assignment into it's autoMakefile.am, even though it's completely unused/unneed there.

Severity: normal
Description: interval_erase() fix
Details: interval_erase() calls update_maxhigh() properly when child == NULL

Severity: normal
Description: Adding WIRE_ATTR attribute to LNET types
Details: LST nodes on different platforms might not communicate well due to the lack of WIRE_ATTR attribute in some LNET structures traversing network. The patch fixes the problem by adding WIRE_ATTR where needed.

Severity: normal
Description: replace server_major_version with connect_flags for quota utils interoperability

Severity: normal
Description: do_div arguments not cross-platform compatible

Severity: normal
Description: fix error message in mds_mfd_close()
Details: Fix error messages in mds_mfd_close() since it is now legitimate to have i_nlink = 1 for dirs in /PENDING.

Severity: normal
Description: "lfs df" does not print stats for all mountpoints
Details: Print all mounted lustre filesystems with "lfs df"

Severity: normal
Description: debug_mb not correctly initialized on newer kernels (2.6.31)
Details: Fixed the debug_mb initialization problem for kernel 2.6.31

Severity: normal
Description: support relative path in llapi_search_fsname()
Details: Use realpath() to provide absolute pathname.

Severity: normal
Description: fix for truncated reply buffer
Details: reply buffer could be referred by reply_in_callback after released

Severity: normal
Description: Add quiet -q option to lfs quota

Severity: normal
Description: hash MEs on RDMA portal
Details: RDMA portal can have very long ME list on client side, which will trigger soft lockup because of long searching on list. Hash MEs on RDMA portal can resolve this problem.

Severity: normal
Description: udev rule to set /dev/obd perms 666
Details: Provide Udev rules file for Lustre, so that /dev/obd permissions are now 666.

Severity: normal
Description: lustre.lov error when backing up symlinks with extended attributes
Details: Improved logic in ll_listxattr()

Severity: normal
Description: properly handle null value for setattr -n lustre.lov
Details: Running "setfattr -n trusted.lov ." causes a NULL dereference in ll_setxattr() due to no checking if "value" is NULL. This command now resets to the default striping when executed against a directory.

Severity: normal
Description: skip statahead for NFSCLIENT

Severity: normal
Description: Kernel update for SLES9 2.6.5-7.322.

Severity: normal
Description: lfs quota output cleanup
Details: Suppress standard output in error cases

Severity: normal
Description: llapi_uuid_match() prints bogus error message on upgraded filesystem Details:
1. Increase the "lfs df" column width to handle TB sized devices cleanly
2. Allow matching OST names without trailing _UUID
3. Allow negating the "--obd" option to "lfs find"
4. Remove duplicate code in mntdf() iterating over MDTs/OSTs. Handle errors

Severity: normal
Description: call sync instead of fsync on local cancel to reduce stack usage
Details: sync_on_lock_cancel is needed for recovery when async journal is enabled, but we actually just need to make sure that metadata blocks have hit the journal, so doing a fs sync should be enough and should consume less stack (just create an empty handle and commmit it).

Severity: normal
Description: simplify client disconnect code on server side
Details: This patch was reverted because we were chasing some regression. It is now safe to re-apply.

Severity: normal
Description: workaround patch
Details: disable the per-thread data (current->journal_info) containing the lock info during I/O to work around the issue for short tem

Severity: normal
Description: Print a dash in empty lfs quota grace columns
Details: Polish lfs quota output for easier processing with awk/sed

Severity: normal
Description: rq_invalid_rqset should be a bitfield

Severity: normal
Description: control DCACHE_LUSTRE_INVALID flag with MDS_INODELOCK_LOOKUP lock
Details: "DCACHE_LUSTRE_INVALID" is controlled by "MDS_INODELOCK_LOOKUP" lock which is corresponding to "IT_LOOKUP", do not skip invalidate for other intent.

Severity: normal
Description: Cannot send after transport shutdown
Details: Clear imp_vbr_failed flag upon eviction

Severity: normal
Description: use req->rq_set itself during recovery
Details: during recovery, uses req->rq_set itself to replay the request instead of ptlrpcd_recovery_pc

Severity: normal
Description: introduce server major version for b1_8 and b2_0 quota utils interoperability

Severity: normal
Description: Use CFS_ALLOC_IO instead of _STD in llap_from_page_with_lockh
Details: During an ll_readahead under ll_readpage, we have seen the the OBD_SLAB_ALLOC hang under ldlm_pools_shrink when trying to lock a page that is already locked by the readahead code.
Using CFS_ALLOC_IO instead of CFS_ALLOC_STD will prevent ldlm_pools_shrink from actually freeing slab, so the call path that blocks indefinitely can never happen.

Severity: normal
Description: inc nlink by 2 instead of 1 in mds_orphan_add_link()
Details: Fix regression introduced by 19640. ext3_inc_count() can reset nlink to 1 when the directory is indexed and inode->i_nlink == 2. Work around the problem by incrementing nlink by 2 instead of 1.

Severity: normal
Description: MDS operations hang when issued with lfs setstripe on a degraded OST
Details: Change the locking order in mds_lookup()

Severity: normal
Description: fix error with make rpms after configure --disable-tests
Details: If one configures lustre with "--disable-tests" a subsequent "make rpms" will fail as it would still try to package up the lustre-tests RPM. Fixing this provided the opportunity to fix another wart, that being the subst'ing the configure arguments into the lustre.spec. Now they are passed as value with "--define 'configure_args ...'" when calling rpmbuild.

Severity: normal
Description: stop waitting for next replay transno if shutdown
Details: if the system is shutting down, wake up service thread blocked to wait for next replay transno during recovery, then all the references held by queued requests can be dropped and device can be stopped.

Severity: normal
Description: return approximate block/inode usage when OSTs are down
Details: Really return approximate block/inode usage when OSTs are down. The old version erroneously skipped oqctl copying on error which prevented this from working properly.

Severity: normal
Description: lov_merge_lvb()) ASSERTION(spin_is_locked(&lsm->lsm_lock)) failed
Details: Protect lli->lli_smd pointer updates with lli->lli_lock.

Severity: normal
Description: Avoid operating lustre-hash internal structures directly.

Severity: normal
Description: mount.lustre fails to pass some options to mount()

Severity: normal
Description: set wait_recovery_complete() MAX value to max recovery time estimated

Severity: normal
Description: make dist seems to exclude the "darwin" bits
Details: Include all of the darwin bits in the distribution tarball created with make dist.

Severity: normal
Description: fix for double release of ibc_lock in o2iblnd
Details: Re-acquire ibc_lock in kiblnd_post_tx_locked(). Add extra reference to conn before calling kiblnd_post_tx_locked() to avoid scenario when conn disappears inside kiblnd_post_tx_locked().

Severity: normal
Description: allow relative pathnames
Details: This patch allows one to give relative pathnames to --with-linux and friends.

Severity: normal
Description: post landing cleanups
Details: Remove generic find_linux_devel_paths() - now that both the rhel5 and sles method files have their own particular version of this method, remove this hacky-trying-to-work-for-both versions from lbuild. Remove a block of what is now redundant code. Remove the comments from the target files describing what happened with this bug.
Align the sles10 and sles11 target files:
- include the rpmfix specifier in the sles10 file
- remove the EXTRA_VERSION_DELIMETER from the sles10 file
- change the TARGET_DELIMETER to FLAVOR_DELIMETER in the sles11 file
- Some whitespace cleanups.

Severity: normal
Description: decrease the usage of memory on clients.
Details: 1. On clients, recycle dentries and inodes unused.
2. Delete the code related to ll_deathrow(att 6215 in bug 1443). It is useless now.

Severity: major
Description: ext4 extent allocation is slower than in ext3
Details: Increase the default value of MB_DEFAULT_ORDER2_REQS to 8, enlarge ext4 preallocation table for 2048 4K blocks extents creation.

Severity: normal
Description: incorrect triggering of synchronous IO
Details: The OSC can mistakenly fall back to synchronous IO when the max_dirty_mb limit is reached and no write requests have yet been issued. This can occur when the dirty pages are spread over many files all of which are below the optimal request size.

Severity: normal
Description: fix errant m4 "dnl" usage
Details: Some dnl() usage seems to have been causing some errors in the resulting configure script.

Severity: normal
Description: fix broken llobdstat and add a counter parameter
Details: Need to make sure we limit the search for OBD stats files to the obdfilter subdirectory of "/proc/fs/lustre".
Add a counter argument to limit the number of items returned when using the interval parameter.
Fix lots of whitespace atrocities as well as better format some of the code.

Severity: normal
Description: PTLRPC_PAUSE_REQ checking should ignore PING.

Severity: normal
Description: Add $(PTHREAD_LIBS) to lctl and lfs build
Details: $(PTHREAD_LIBS) is needed to compile lctl and lfs for BG/P

Severity: normal
Description: Optimize quota_ctl operations by sending requests in parallel
Details: Based on a patch from Joseph Herring (LLNL).
Send MDS->OST quota_ctl requests in parallel, do not resend.
Compiled from two attachments in the ticket.

Severity: normal
Description: deadlock fix
Details: start the transaction earlier in llog_lvfs_destroy to get transaction start and inode mutex lock nested properly.

Severity: normal
Description: workaround dd bus error
Details: A buggy coreutils/gettext combination workaround. Suppressing dd xfer statistic makes dd do not call gnu gettext library and avoid crashing.

Severity: minor
Description: fix file ownerships in lustre-modules RPM
Details: The files in the lustre-modules RPM were not being set with a correct owner and were therefore just using what was on the filesystem.

Severity: normal
Description: a small fix for "lfs osts"
Details: Actually, we don't want to traverse the directory tree, so return a positive value from sem_init to terminate the traversal before it starts.

Severity: normal
Description: handle SLV==1 on client side
Details: Initialize ldlm pool SLV to 0 on client side to handle SLV==1 obtained from server correctly

Severity: normal
Description: lru resize SLV can get stuck
Details: calculate SLV with a greater precision to not lose small changes due to interger math truncation; round up SLV only if the amount of granted locks less than the limit to not get stuck with this SLV

Severity: normal
Description: prevent use of OFED source dir instead of headers
Details: Try to determine if the user is pointing configure at the OFED source directory intead of the devel/headers directory and error out of configure if so and display an informative warning.

Severity: normal
Description: Ignore broken cancel_dirty_page() in OFED 1.4.1
Details: OFED 1.4.1 had a broken implementation of cancel_dirty_page for SLES10. This patch detects that and ignores the function if found.

Severity: normal
Description: Get rid of the EXTRA_VERSION_DELIMETER shenanigans
Details: We used to carry around a bunch of baggage in order to specify what kind of delimeter to put between the version and "extra version". The truth of the matter is that this should always be "-".
This patch includes some support for a build system developer to force an uncached rebuild of all products.

Severity: normal
Description: (17914) ignore trailing -mdc when determining index number

Severity: normal
Description: avoid divide-by-zero in lprocfs_rd_import()

Severity: normal
Description: use separate failover counter for each facet

Severity: normal
Description: call build_lqs only from generic_quota_on

Severity: normal
Description: "lfs check" is only allowed for root.
Details: Code cleanup around obd_class_*() functions and sanity test for non-root lfs check

Severity: normal
Description: Kernel update to OEL5.4 2.6.18-164.11.1.0.1.el5.

Severity: normal
Description: fail the request if its obd_device stopping
Details: in ldlm_handle_enqueue, the request should be failed if its obd_device had been marked as "fail"(obd_fail=1), which will be set during umount.

Severity: normal
Description: lustre_hash_rehash_key() should use lh_read_unlock()
Details: lh_read_lock() is no-op if rehash is disabled, so we should use lh_read_unlock() in this function. This should not have any consequence, but better to fix it.

Severity: normal
Description: move assertion under write lock

Severity: normal
Description: print more debug info in lustre_hash_exit when assertion fails

Severity: normal
Description: do not flag a request as rq_replay for non replayable imports

Severity: normal
Description: LBUG doesn't print stack trace on sles9 because show_stack not exported

Severity: enhancement
Description: Enhancement for lfs(1) command to use numeric uid/gid.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Adjust locks' extents on their first enqueue, so that at the time they get granted, there is no need for another pass through the queues since they are already shaped into the proper forms.

Severity: normal
Description: Fix mds_shrink_intent_reply()/mds_intent_policy() to pass correct arguments and prevent LBUG() in lustre_shrink_reply_v2().

Severity: normal
Description: Change tunefs.lustre and mkfs.lustre --mountfsoptions so that exactly the specified mount options are used. Leaving off any "mandatory" mount options is an error. Leaving off any default mount options causes a warning, but is allowed. Change errors=remount-ro from mandatory to default. Sanitize the mount string before storing it. Update man pages accordingly.

Severity: normal
Description: mds_getattr() should return 0, even if mds_fid2entry() fails with -ENOENT. Also fix in ptlrpc_expire_one_request() to print signed time difference.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Remove set_info(KEY_UNLINKED) from MDS/OSC

Severity: enhancement
Description: Clients can replay thousands of unused locks during recovery
Details: Don't replay unused locks (only read locks for now) during recovery. This feature is disabled by default and can be enabled by running the following command on the clients: lctl get_param ldlm.cancel_unused_locks_before_replay

Severity: normal
Description: can't stat file in some situation.
Details: improve initialize osc date when target is added to mds and ability to resend too big getattr request is client isn't have info about ost.

Severity: normal
Description: Prevent inconsistences between linux and lustre mount structures.
Details: Wait indefinitely in server_wait_finished() until mnt_count drops. Make the sleep interruptible.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Communicate OST degraded/readonly state via statfs to MDS
Details: Flags in the statfs returned from OSTs indicate whether the OST is in a degraded RAID state, or if the filesystem has turned read-only after a filesystem error is detected.

Severity: normal
Frequency: rare
Description: don't panic if EPROTO was hit when reading symlink
Details: correctly handling request reference in error cases.

Severity: normal
Frequency: common
Description: open sometimes returns ENOENT instead of EACCES
Details: checking permission should be part of open part of mds_open, not lookup part. so server should be set DISP_OPEN_OPEN disposition before starting permission check. Also not need revalidate dentry if client already have LOOKUP lock.

Severity: normal
Frequency: on servers with multiple network interfaces
Description: enable client interface failover
Details: When a child reconnects from another NID, properly update export nid hash position and ldlm reverse import.

Severity: enhancement
Description: implemented direct I/O with arbitrary (nonaligned) memory addresses and file offsets.

Severity: enhancement
Description: added more recovery timeout options.

Severity: enhancement
Description: added llapi_file_open, llapi_file_create, llapi_file_get_stripe man pages.

Severity: normal
Frequency: only on systems with clients writing to an OST on the same node
Description: Avoid deadlock for local client writes
Details: Use new OBD_BRW_MEMALLOC flag to notify OST about writes in the memory freeing context. This allows OST threads to set the PF_MEMALLOC flag on task structures in order to allocate memory from reserved pools and complete IO. Use GFP_HIGHUSER for OST allocations for non-local client writes, so that the OST threads generate memory pressure and allow inactive pages to be reclaimed.

Severity: normal
Frequency: rare
Description: lock ordering violation between &cli->cl_sem and _lprocfs_lock
Details: .move ldlm namespace creation in setup phase to avoid grab _lprocfs_lock with cli_sem held

Severity: normal
Frequency: only during format of test systems
Description: Unable to run several mkfs.lustre on loop devices at the same time
Details: mkfs.lustre returns error 256 on the concurrent loop devices formatting. The solution is to proper handle the error.

Severity: enhancement
Description: implement async create (obd_async_create) method for osc, to avoid too long waiting new ost objects with holding ldlm lock.

Severity: normal
Frequency: occasionally during network problems
Description: client not allowed to reconnect to OST because of active request
Details: abort bulk requests received by the OST once the client has timed out since the client will resend the request anyway. The client also now retries to reconnect to the same server if a connect request failed with EBUSY or -EAGAIN.

Severity: normal
Frequency: rare, if used wide striped file and one ost in down.
Description: don't return error if we created a subset of objects for file.
Details: lov_update_create_set() uses set->set_success as index for created objects, so if some requests failed, they will have hole at end of array and we can use qos_shrink_lsm for allocate correct lsm.

Severity: normal
Description: Slow stale export processing during normal start up
Details: The global mgc lock prevents OST setup to be run in parallel. Replace the global lock with a per-config_llog_data semaphore.

Severity: normal
Description: Out or order replies might be lost on replay
Details: In ptlrpc_retain_replayable_request if we cannot find retained request with tid smaller then one currently being added, add it to the start, not end of the list.

Severity: normal
Description: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 10s! [ll_mdt_07:4523]

Frequency: only with NFS export
Description: (lov_merge.c:74:lov_merge_lvb()) ASSERTION(spin_is_locked(&lsm->lsm_lock)) failed (SR 71691004)
Details: Fix a race in the nfs export code by populating inode info while the new inode is still locked

Severity: enhancement
Description: add a new file in procfs called force_lbug. Writting to this ile triggers a LBUG. Only for test purpose.

Severity: normal
Description: OOM killer causes node hang
Details: really interrupt the sleep in osc_enter_cache on signals

Severity: normal
Description: LustreError: 9153:0:(quota_context.c:622:dqacq_completion()) LBUG
Details: fix race during quota release on the slave.

Details: increase hash table sizes and enabled rehashing for pools, uuid, nid & per-nid stats.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Add ldiskfs maxdirsize mount option
Details: add max_dir size mount option

Severity: normal
Description: panic in ll_statahead_thread
Details: prevent parent thread to be killed before its child

Severity: normal
Frequency: only with 16TB device
Description: unable to perform "mount -t lustre" of 16TB OST device
Details: Mounting 16TB LUNs failed due to three bugs in mkfs.lustre.

Description: recovery-small test_17 hang
Details: Land several AT improvements & fixes.

Severity: normal
Description: MDS panic and hanging client processes
Details: Replace exp_ops_stats with exp_nid_stats->nid_stats

Severity: normal
Description: OSS stuck in recovery.
Details: fix race during recovery. class_unlink_export, class_set_export_delayed and target_queue_last_replay_reply may race while increasing/decreasing obd_recoverable_clients and obd_delayed_clients, causing recovery to wait forever.

Severity: enhancement
Description: add cascading_rw.c to lustre/tests

Severity: normal
Description: filter_last_id() NULL deref
Details: lprocfs_filter_rd_last_id() should check for the fully setup obd device, before proceeding further.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Loadgen improvements
Details: stacksize and locking fixes for loadgen

Severity: normal
Description: Quiet CERROR("dirty %d > system dirty_max %d\n"
Details: The atomic_read() allowing the atomic_inc() are not covered by a lock. Thus they may safely race and trip this CERROR() unless we add in a small fudge factor (+1).

Severity: enhancement
Description: shrink_slab: nr=-9223362083340912175
Details: fix spurious message from shrink_slab reporing negative nr

Severity: normal
Description: Quiet bogus previously committed transno error

Severity: normal
Description: mdsrate-create-large.sh, BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 10s!
Details: fix bug in the RHEL5's jbd2 callback patch.

Severity: normal
Description: drop number of active requests when queued for recovery
Details: Now that we take a reference on the original request instead of making a copy of it for recovery. We need to drop the number of active requests or the queued requests will prevent all request processing when they exceed (srv->srv_threads_running - 1).

Severity: enhancement
Description: refuse to invalidate operational quota files when they are in use
Details: an attempt to invalidate operational quota files on the quota master is not actually permitted by VFS (returning -EPERM), but we should not depend on that and should return the error earlier.

Severity: normal
Description: Applications stuck in jbd2_log_wait_commit during exit
Details: fix deadlock between kjournald2 trying to acquire the page lock owned by an ost_io thread waiting for journal commit.

ext4 support for RHEL5 is experimental and thus should not be used in production.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Add OEL5 support.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Update kernel to SLES11 2.6.27.29-0.1.

Severity: major
Description: File checksum failures with OST read cache on
Details: Disable page poisoning when the bulk transfer has to be aborted because the client got evicted.

Severity: normal
Description: Don't allow make backward step on assiging osc next id.
Details: race between allocation next id and ll_sync thread can be cause of set wrong osc next id and can be kill valid ost objects.

Description: Increase of the size of the LDLM resource hash.
Details: Bump up RES_HASH_BITS=12.

Severity: normal
Description: correctly send lsm on open replay
Details: MDS is trust to LSM size on replay open, but client can set wrong size of lsm buffer.

Severity: normal
Description: Deadlock between filter_destroy() and filter_commitrw_write().
Details: filter_destroy() does not hold the DLM lock over the whole operation. If the DLM lock is dropped, filter_commitrw() can go through, causing the deadlock between page lock and i_mutex. The i_alloc_sem should also be hold in filter_destroy() while truncating the file.

Severity: normal
Description: truncate starts GFP_FS allocation under transaction causing deadlock
Details: ldiskfs_truncate calls grab_cache_page which may start page allocation under an open transaction. This may lead to calling prune_icache with consequent lustre reentrance.

Severity: normal
Frequency: only when down/upgrading the MDS to 1.6/1.8 while 1.8 clients are still up and when the OST pool feature is used
Description: interop testing got LBUG when run dd with OST pool :LustreError: 30032:0:(llite_lib.c:1913:ll_replace_lsm()) LBUG
Details: down/upgrading the MDS to a version that doesn't/does support OST pool can cause clients to crash because the lsm has changed behind their back.

Details: make rpms failed due because the tree_status file is missing.

Severity: normal
Description: continuing LustreError "mds adjust qunit failed!"
Details: don't print message on the console when ->adjust_qunit fails.

Severity: normal
Description: don't increase ldlm timeout if previous client was evicted
Details: if a client doesn't respond to a blocking callback within the adaptive ldlm enqueue timeout, don't adjust the adaptive estimate when the lock is next granted.

Severity: normal
Description: ost is being unmounted w/o all writes to last_rcvd landing on disk. affects recovery negatively.
Details: make sure all exports have been properly destroyed by the zombie thread processed before stopping the target.

Description: MXLND: eliminate hosts file, use arp for peer nic_id resolution
Details: an update from the upstream developer Scott Atchley.

Severity: enhancement
Description: add a new LND optiion to control peer buffer credits on routers

Severity: normal
Description: Fixing deadlock in usocklnd
Details: A deadlock was possible in usocklnd due to race condition while tearing connection down. The problem resulted from erroneous assumption that lnet_finalize() could have been called holding some lnd-level locks.

Severity: major
Description: Protocol V2 of o2iblnd
Details: o2iblnd V2 has several new features:

  • map-on-demand: map-on-demand is disabled by default, it can be enabled by using modparam "map_on_demand=@value@", @value@ should >= 0 and < 256, 0 will disable map-on-demand, any other valid value will enable map-on-demand.
Oi2blnd will create FMR or physical MR for RDMA if fragments of RD > @value@.
Enable map-on-demand will take less memory for new connection, but a little more CPU for RDMA.
  • iWARP : to support iWARP, please enable map-on-demand, 32 and 64 are recommanded value. iWARP will probably fail for value >=128.
  • OOB NOOP message: to resolve deadlock on router.
  • tunable peer_credits_hiw: (high water to return credits), default value of peer_credits_hiw equals to (peer_credits -1), user can change it between peer_credits/2 and (peer_credits - 1). Lower value is recommended for high latency network.
  • tunable message queue size: it always equals to peer_credits, higher value is recommended for high latency network.
  • It's compatible with earlier version of o2iblnd

Severity: normal
Description: Fixing 'running out of ports' issue

Details: See comment 46 in bug 11245 for details - it's indeed a bug introduced by the original 11245 fix.

Severity: minor
Description: uptllnd credit overflow fix
Details: kptl_msg_t::ptlm_credits could be overflown by uptllnd since it is only a __u8.

Severity: major
Description: socklnd protocol version 3
Details: With current protocol V2, connections on router can be blocked and can't receive any incoming messages when there is no more router buffer, so ZC-ACK can't be handled (LNet message can't be finalized) and will cause deadlock on router. Protocol V3 has a dedicated connection for emergency messages like ZC-ACK to router, messages on this dedicated connection don't need any credit so will never be blocked. Also, V3 can send keepalive ping in specified period for router healthy checking.

Severity: minor
Frequency: in recovery
Description: don't mix llog inodes with normal.
Details: allocate inodes for log in last inode group

Severity: normal
Description: Deadlock between filter_destroy() and filter_commitrw_write().
Details: filter_destroy() does not hold the DLM lock over the wholeoperation. If the DLM lock is dropped, filter_commitrw() can gothrough, causing the deadlock between page lock and i_mutex.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Description: Update

Frequency: with 1.8 server and 1.6 clients
Description: correctly shrink reply for avoid send too big message to client.
Details: 1.8 mds is allocate to big buffer to LOV EA data and this produce some problems with sending this reply to 1.6 client.

Severity: normal
Description: Repeated atomic allocation failures.
Details: Use GFP_HIGHUSER | __GFP_NOMEMALLOC flags for memory allocations to generate memory pressure and allow reclaiming of inactive pages. At the same time, do not allow to exhaust emergency pools. For local clients the use of GFP_NOFS will be introduced in 1.8.2

Severity: major
Frequency: rare, only if using MMP with Linux RAID
Description: MMP doesn't work with Linux RAID
Details: While using HA for Lustre servers with Linux RAID, it is possible that MMP will not detect multiple mounts. To make this work we need to unplug the device queue in RAID when the MMP block is being written. Also while reading the MMP block, we should read it from disk and not the cached one.

Severity: minor
Frequency: rare, during recovery
Description: Assertion failure in ldlm_lock_put
Details: Do not put cancelled locks into replay list, hold references on locks in replay list

Severity: normal
Description: 1.6.5 mdsrate performance is slower than 1.4.11/12 (MDS is not cpu bound!)

Severity: major
Frequency: rare
Description: fix lqs' reference which won't be put in some situations
Details: This patch fixes:

    1. In quota_check_common(), this function will check quota
       for user and group, but only send one return via "pending".
       In most cases, the pendings should be same. But that is not
       always the case.
    2. If quotaoff runs between lquota_chkquota() and
       lquota_pending_commit(), the same thing will happen too.
       That is why it comes:
       -        if (!ll_sb_any_quota_active(qctxt->lqc_sb))
       -                RETURN(0);

Severity: minor
Frequency: rare
Description: this bug _only_ happens when inode quota limitation is very low (less than 12), so that inode quota unit is 1 at initialization.
Details: if remaining quota equates 1, it is a sign to demonstate that quota is effective now. So least quota qunit should be 2.

Severity: normal
Description: Hung threads in invalidate_inode_pages2_range
Details: The direct IO path doesn't call check_rpcs to submit a new RPC once one is completed. As a result, some RPCs are stuck in the queue and are never sent.

Description: quotas are not honored with O_DIRECT
Details: all writes with the flag O_DIRECT will use grants which leads to this problem. Now using OBD_BRW_SYNC to guard this.

Severity: major
Frequency: rare
Description: Assertion in iopen_connect_dentry in 1.6.3
Details: looking up an inode via iopen with the wrong generation number can populate the dcache with a disconneced dentry while the inode number is in the process of being reallocated. This causes an assertion failure in iopen since the inode's dentry list contains both a connected and disconnected dentry.

Severity: normal

Severity: normal
Frequency: only for big-endian servers
Description: Check if big-endian system while mounting fs with extents feature
Details: Mounting a filesystem with extents feature will fail on big-endian systems since ext3-based ldiskfs is not supported on big-endian systems. Can be overridden with "bigendian_extents" mount option.

Severity: normal
Description: Excessive recovery window
Details: With AT enabled, the recovery window can be excessively long (6000+ seconds). To address this problem, we no longer use OBD_RECOVERY_FACTOR when extending the recovery window (the connect timeout no longer depends on the service time, it is set to INITIAL_CONNECT_TIMEOUT now) and clients report the old service time via pb_service_time.

Severity: normal
Description: Watchdog triggered on MDS failover
Details: enable OBD_CONNECT_MDT flag when connecting from the MDS so that the OSTs know that the MDS "UUID" can be reused for the same export from a different NID, so we do not need to wait for the export to be evicted.

Severity: enhancement
Description: Don't sync journal after every i/o
Details: Implement write RPC replay to allow server replies for write RPCs before data is on disk. However, this feature is disabled by default since some issues leading to data corruptions have been found during recovery (e.g. bug 19128). This feature can be enabled by running the following command on the OSSs: lctl set_param obdfilter.*.sync_journal=0

Severity: low
Description: Slow reads beyond 8Tb offsets.
Details: Page index integer overflow in ll_read_ahead_page

Severity: major
Frequency: rare, only if using MMP with Linux RAID
Description: MMP doesn't work with Linux RAID
Details: While using HA for Lustre servers with Linux RAID, it is possible that MMP will not detect multiple mounts. To make this work we need to unplug the device queue in RAID when the MMP block is being written. Also while reading the MMP block, we should read it from disk and not the cached one.

Severity: minor
Frequency: rare, during recovery
Description: Assertion failure in ldlm_lock_put
Details: Do not put cancelled locks into replay list, hold references on locks in replay list

Severity: critical
Description: Lustre detected file system corruption with inode out of bounds
Details: don't update i_size on MDS_CLOSE for directories. This causes directory corruptions on the MDT.

Severity: normal
Description: client doesn't try to reconnect
Details: correctly skip time estimate if in recovery
