List of Lustre Features and Projects
Below is a list of Lustre features and projects that are just waiting for someone to start working on them. They are listed roughly in order of increasing complexity, but this is highly dependent upon the coding skills of the developer and their familiarity with the Lustre code base.
|Feature||Complexity||Required skills||Tracking Bug||Brief Description|
|mdd-survey tools for performance analysis||3||obdfilter-survey, mdd, benchmarking||21658||Add a low-level metadata unit test to allow measuring performance of the metadata stack without having connected clients, similar and/or integrated to the obdfilter survey (echo client, echo server)|
|32TB ldiskfs filesystems||5||ldiskfs, obdfilter||20063||Single OST sizes larger than 16TB. This is largely supported in newer ext4 filesystems (e.g. RHEL5.4, RHEL6), but thorough testing and some bug fixing work may be needed in obdfilter (1.8, 2.0) or OFD (2.x), and other work may be needed in client (all versions).
