Contents

A number of different documents are available to support the Lustre user community. The Lustre Operations Manual provides comprehensive information about the Lustre product and is updated frequently.

High-level designs (HLDs) and detailed-level designs (DLDs) for Lustre are available, as are Lustre Internals, describing complex, internal topics. For these documents, see Additional Resources, below.

In the spirit of the open-source community, the Lustre Group is committed to making Lustre 'more open', including its documentation. Look for more Lustre documents to be made available in the near future.
