Current Schedule

  • June 30 2015 - Feature Freeze

Scope

General Work and Maintenance

From the Lustre project page in the Lustre issue tracker, we can see a dashboard for the project. On that page under the "Versions: Unreleased" section, there are links to future releases and all of the issues that are either targeted to be addressed in that release, or are already addressed for the release. Here is a shortcut to Lustre 2.8.0's issue summary page:

 Lustre 2.8.0 Issues

Any issue that contains "Lustre 2.8.0" in the "Fix Version/s" field of a ticket is intended to be fixed for version 2.8.0. The Lustre 2.8.0 Issues list is fluid, and will be updated on a continual basis as man power and perceived priorities change.

A convenience search filter is supplied for anyone looking for work that needs to be done for 2.8.0:

Features

The scope of features to be included in the 2.8.0 release will be less predefined than it was for past releases. In the past we selected a set of features, and then we delayed the release until all of the major features were more-or-less ready. Our new plan is to keep track of the progress on various projects on the Projects page. If features are on target for completion before the Feature Freeze, they can land for Lustre 2.8.0. If a feature's development slips, then it will have to wait until a subsequent release before it can land.

As of August 20, 2015, the following features were landed for the 2.8 feature freeze:

  • DNE Phase IIb (async commit and recovery)
  • LFSCK Phase 4 (performance tuning)
  • Multiple modify RPCs per client
  • RHEL 7 server support
  • SELinux preliminary client support
  • Kerberos fixes

Test Matrix

  • Servers: RHEL 6.7, RHEL 7.2
  • Clients RHEL 7.2, RHEL 6.7, SLES 11 SP4
  • OFED: inkernel
  • E2FSProgs: v1.42.13.wc4-7
