LizardFS 3.12 official release.

 

It is official now. After a few weeks of tests with positive feedback from the community and our beta testers LizardFS 3.12 is out.

With promising initial feedback like: “it’s a huge step forward” or “with RichACLs there is no doubt it is a great enterprise product” we cannot wait to hear the outcomes after your upgrades.

Install it, run it and let us know.

We will be updating you with more details soon – so stayed tuned.

Things that we improved:

Documentation – corrected install guide and few other details.

Things added:

Completely new Windows Client with rich ACLs support, improved performance (200%) and stability (eliminated problems after one of the OS updates).

Rest looks just as great as before:

– C API

– nfs-ganesha plugin

– RichACL – a new POSIX + NFSv4 compatible ACL standard

– OSX ACL support through osxfuse

– ACL in-memory deduplication

– file lock fixes

– AVX2 support for erasure code goals

– MinGW compilation fixes

– more flexible chunkserver options

– many fixes

 

LizardFS 3.12.0 RC is out!

Release Candidate of 3.12.0

Please test it and let us know about any issues.

Description below.

Featuring:

 

– C API

– nfs-ganesha plugin

– RichACL – a new POSIX + NFSv4 compatible ACL standard

– OSX ACL support through osxfuse

– ACL in-memory deduplication

– file lock fixes

– AVX2 support for erasure code goals

– MinGW compilation fixes

– more flexible chunkserver options

– many fixes

Detailed info:

* C API *

LizardFS 3.12 comes with liblizardfs-client library and C language API header.

It’s now possible to build programs/plugins with direct support for LizardFS operations,

no FUSE needed. For reference, see:

src/mount/client/lizardfs_c_api.h

src/data/liblizardfs-client-example.c

 

For those building LizardFS from source, pass a -DENABLE_CLIENT_LIB=YES flag to cmake

in order to make sure you’re building client library as well.

* nfs-ganesha plugin *

 

Our official plugin for Ganesha NFS server is included as well. This plugin enables

a LizardFS FSAL (File System Abstraction Layer) to Ganesha, which is then used

to access LizardFS clusters directly. Our new plugin is pNFS and NFSv4.1 friendly.

 

For those building LizardFS from source, pass a -DENABLE_NFS_GANESHA=YES flag to cmake in order to make sure you’re building client library as well.

* RichACL *

In order to extend POSIX access control list implementation we introduced RichACL support.

Backward compatibility with POSIX ACLs is guaranteed. Additionally, it’s possible to use NFSv4-style ACL tools (nfs4_getfacl/nfs4_setfacl) and RichACL tools (getrichacl/setrichacl) to manage more complicated access control rules.

* OSX ACL *

Setting/getting ACLs is also possible on OSX via both command line chmod/ls -e interface and desktop.

 

* File lock fixes *

Global file locking mechanism is now fully fixed and passes all NFS lock tests from connectathon suite.

 

* AVX2 *

Erasure code goal computing routines now take full advantage of AVX2 processor extensions.

 

* MinGW *

LizardFS is now bug-free again for MinGW cross-compiling.

 

* Chunkserver options *

Replication limits are now fully configurable in chunkserver config.

Also, chunk test (a.k.a. scrubbing) has 1 millisecond precision now instead of previous 1 second, which allows users to turn on more aggressive scrubbing with simple chunkserver reload.
