Lustre 2.5.0 Status

Expected code freeze is next Monday

This time around hope to branch 2.5 and open master for landing sooner.

Lustre 2.6.0 Planning

Additional possible work:

  • HSM follow-on work from CEA
  • Clean up console messages

Other topics

Discussion about improving testing plan. Need to get the test and release plan put together early in the 2.6 process. With 2.6, it will probably be difficult to get as many people to test as with 2.4.

Performance testing to compare 2.5 vs 2.6.

Discussion about console messages and what to do about them. Identified a few things that are needed:

  • Development work needed to clean up old console messages
  • Need to enforce good console usage at patch review time
  • Need to watch for console message regression during testing

Meghan - Would like to see automated reporting of testing. Mentioned that James had some ideas in this area.

Action Items

  • Peter - Begin 2.6 test plan document and circulate draft with the CDWG
  • Chris - Open ticket against 2.6.0 to track console message cleanup
  • Meghan - Begin scoping effort involved with automated reporting of test results
  • Make page describing Lustre patch submission procedures (Chris, everyone)
