v0.67.12 “Dumpling” (draft)

This stable update for Dumpling fixes a few longstanding issues with backfill in the OSD that can lead to stalled IOs. There is also a fix for memory utilization for reads in librbd when caching is enabled, and then several other small fixes across the rest of the system.

Dumpling users who have encountered IO stalls during backfill and who do not expect to upgrade to Firefly soon should upgrade. Everyone else should upgrade to Firefly already. This is likely to be the last stable release for the 0.67.x Dumpling series.

v0.67.8 “Dumpling”

This Dumpling point release fixes several non-critical issues since v0.67.7. The most notable bug fixes are an auth fix in librbd (observed as an occasional crash from KVM), an improvement in the network failure detection with the monitor, and several hard to hit OSD crashes or hangs.

We recommend that all users upgrade at their convenience.

Upgrading

  • The ‘rbd ls’ function now returns success and returns an empty when a pool does not store any rbd images. Previously it would return an ENOENT error.
  • Ceph will now issue a health warning if the ‘mon osd down out interval’ config option is set to zero. This warning can be disabled by adding ‘mon warn on osd down out interval zero = false’ to ceph.conf.

v0.67.7 “Dumpling”

This Dumpling point release fixes a few critical issues in v0.67.6.

All v0.67.6 users are urgently encouraged to upgrade. We also recommend that all v0.67.5 (or older) users upgrade.

Upgrading

  • Once you have upgraded a radosgw instance or OSD to v0.67.7, you should not downgrade to a previous version.

Notable Changes

  • ceph-disk: additional unit tests
  • librbd: revert caching behavior change in v0.67.6
  • osd: fix problem reading xattrs due to incomplete backport in v0.67.6
  • radosgw-admin: fix reading object policy

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.67.6 “Dumpling”

This Dumpling point release contains a number of important fixed for the OSD, monitor, and radosgw. Most significantly, a change that forces large object attributes to spill over into leveldb has been backported that can prevent objects and the cluster from being damaged by large attributes (which can be induced via the radosgw). There is also a set of fixes that improves data safety and RADOS semantics when the cluster becomes full and then non-full.

We recommend that all 0.67.x Dumpling users skip this release and upgrade to v0.67.7.

Upgrading

  • The OSD has long contained a feature that allows large xattrs to spill over into the leveldb backing store in situations where not all local file systems are able to store them reliably. This option is now enabled unconditionally in order to avoid rare cases where storing large xattrs renders the object unreadable. This is known to be triggered by very large multipart objects, but could be caused by other workloads as well. Although there is some small risk that performance for certain workloads will degrade, it is more important that data be retrievable. Note that newer versions of Ceph (e.g., firefly) do some additional work to avoid the potential performance regression in this case, but that is current considered too complex for backport to the Dumpling stable series.
  • It is very dangerous to downgrade from v0.67.6 to a prior version of Dumpling. If the old version does not have ‘filestore xattr use omap = true’ it may not be able to read all xattrs for an object and can cause undefined behavior.

Notable changes

  • ceph-disk: misc bug fixes, particularly on RHEL (Loic Dachary, Alfredo Deza, various)
  • ceph-fuse, libcephfs: fix crash from read over certain sparseness patterns (Sage Weil)
  • ceph-fuse, libcephfs: fix integer overflow for sync reads racing with appends (Sage Weil)

v0.67.5 “Dumpling”

This release includes a few critical bug fixes for the radosgw, including a fix for hanging operations on large objects. There are also several bug fixes for radosgw multi-site replications, and a few backported features.

v0.67.2 “Dumpling”

This is an imporant point release for Dumpling. Most notably, it fixes a problem when upgrading directly from v0.56.x Bobtail to v0.67.x Dumpling (without stopping at v0.61.x Cuttlefish along the way). It also fixes a problem with the CLI parsing of the CEPH_ARGS environment variable, high CPU utilization by the ceph-osd daemons, and cleans up the radosgw shutdown sequence.

Notable Changes

  • objecter: resend linger requests when cluster goes from full to non-full
  • ceph: parse CEPH_ARGS environment variable
  • librados: fix small memory leak
  • osd: remove old log objects on upgrade (fixes bobtail -> dumpling jump)
  • osd: disable PGLog::check() via config option (fixes CPU burn)
  • rgw: drain requests on shutdown
  • rgw: misc memory leaks on shutdown

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.67.1 “Dumpling”

This is a minor point release for Dumpling that fixes problems with OpenStack and librbd hangs when caching is disabled.

Notable changes

  • librados, librbd: fix constructor for python bindings with certain usages (in particular, that used by OpenStack)
  • librados, librbd: fix aio_flush wakeup when cache is disabled
  • librados: fix locking for aio completion refcounting
  • fixes ‘ceph –admin-daemon …’ command error code on error
  • fixes ‘ceph daemon … config set …’ command for boolean config options.

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.67 “Dumpling”

This is the fourth major release of Ceph, code-named “Dumpling.” The headline features for this release include:

  • Multi-site support for radosgw. This includes the ability to set up separate “regions” in the same or different Ceph clusters that share a single S3/Swift bucket/container namespace.
  • RESTful API endpoint for Ceph cluster administration. ceph-rest-api, a wrapper around ceph_rest_api.py, can be used to start up a test single-threaded HTTP server that provides access to cluster information and administration in very similar ways to the ceph commandline tool. ceph_rest_api.py can be used as a WSGI application for deployment in a more-capable web server. See ceph-rest-api.8 for more.
  • Object namespaces in librados.

Upgrade Sequencing

It is possible to do a rolling upgrade from Cuttlefish to Dumpling.

  1. Upgrade ceph-common on all nodes that will use the command line ‘ceph’ utility.
  2. Upgrade all monitors (upgrade ceph package, restart ceph-mon daemons). This can happen one daemon or host at a time. Note that because cuttlefish and dumpling monitors can’t talk to each other, all monitors should be upgraded in relatively short succession to minimize the risk that an a untimely failure will reduce availability.
  3. Upgrade all osds (upgrade ceph package, restart ceph-osd daemons). This can happen one daemon or host at a time.
  4. Upgrade radosgw (upgrade radosgw package, restart radosgw daemons).

Upgrading from v0.66

  • There is monitor internal protocol change, which means that v0.67 ceph-mon daemons cannot talk to v0.66 or older daemons. We recommend upgrading all monitors at once (or in relatively quick succession) to minimize the possibility of downtime.

  • The output of ‘ceph status –format=json’ or ‘ceph -s –format=json’ has changed to return status information in a more structured and usable format.

  • The ‘ceph pg dump_stuck [threshold]’ command used to require a –threshold or -t prefix to the threshold argument, but now does not.

  • Many more ceph commands now output formatted information; select with ‘–format=<format>’, where <format> can be ‘json’, ‘json-pretty’, ‘xml’, or ‘xml-pretty’.

  • The ‘ceph pg <pgid> …’ commands (like ‘ceph pg <pgid> query’) are deprecated in favor of ‘ceph tell <pgid> …’. This makes the distinction between ‘ceph pg <command> <pgid>’ and ‘ceph pg <pgid> <command>’ less awkward by making it clearer that the ‘tell’ commands are talking to the OSD serving the placement group, not the monitor.

  • The ‘ceph –admin-daemon <path> <command …>’ used to accept the command and arguments as either a single string or as separate arguments. It will now only accept the command spread across multiple arguments. This means that any script which does something like:

    ceph --admin-daemon /var/run/ceph/ceph-osd.0.asok 'config set debug_ms 1'
    

    needs to remove the quotes. Also, note that the above can now be shortened to:

    ceph daemon osd.0 config set debug_ms 1
    
  • The radosgw caps were inconsistently documented to be either ‘mon = allow r’ or ‘mon = allow rw’. The ‘mon = allow rw’ is required for radosgw to create its own pools. All documentation has been updated accordingly.

  • The radosgw copy object operation may return extra progress info during the operation. At this point it will only happen when doing cross zone copy operations. The S3 response will now return extra <Progress> field under the <CopyResult> container. The Swift response will now send the progress as a json array.

  • In v0.66 and v0.65 the HASHPSPOOL pool flag was enabled by default for new pools, but has been disabled again until Linux kernel client support reaches more distributions and users.

  • ceph-osd now requires a max file descriptor limit (e.g., ulimit -n ...) of at least filestore_wbthrottle_(xfs|btrfs)_inodes_hard_limit (5000 by default) in order to accomodate the new write back throttle system. On Ubuntu, upstart now sets the fd limit to 32k. On other platforms, the sysvinit script will set it to 32k by default (still overrideable via max_open_files). If this field has been customized in ceph.conf it should likely be adjusted upwards.

Upgrading from v0.61 “Cuttlefish”

In addition to the above notes about upgrading from v0.66:

  • There has been a huge revamp of the ‘ceph’ command-line interface implementation. The ceph-common client library needs to be upgrade before ceph-mon is restarted in order to avoid problems using the CLI (the old ceph client utility cannot talk to the new ceph-mon).

  • The CLI is now very careful about sending the ‘status’ one-liner output to stderr and command output to stdout. Scripts relying on output should take care.

  • The ‘ceph osd tell …’ and ‘ceph mon tell …’ commands are no longer supported. Any callers should use:

    ceph tell osd.<id or *> ...
    ceph tell mon.<id or name or *> ...
    

    The ‘ceph mds tell …’ command is still there, but will soon also transition to ‘ceph tell mds.<id or name or *> …’

  • The ‘ceph osd crush add …’ command used to take one of two forms:

    ceph osd crush add 123 osd.123 <weight> <location ...>
    ceph osd crush add osd.123 <weight> <location ...>
    

    This is because the id and crush name are redundant. Now only the simple form is supported, where the osd name/id can either be a bare id (integer) or name (osd.<id>):

    ceph osd crush add osd.123 <weight> <location ...>
    ceph osd crush add 123 <weight> <location ...>
    
  • There is now a maximum RADOS object size, configurable via ‘osd max object size’, defaulting to 100 GB. Note that this has no effect on RBD, CephFS, or radosgw, which all stripe over objects. If you are using librados and storing objects larger than that, you will need to adjust ‘osd max object size’, and should consider using smaller objects instead.

  • The ‘osd min down {reporters|reports}’ config options have been renamed to ‘mon osd min down {reporters|reports}’, and the documentation has been updated to reflect that these options apply to the monitors (who process failure reports) and not OSDs. If you have adjusted these settings, please update your ceph.conf accordingly.

v0.66

Upgrading

  • There is now a configurable maximum rados object size, defaulting to 100 GB. If you are using librados and storing objects larger than that, you will need to adjust ‘osd max object size’, and should consider using smaller objects instead.

  • osd: fixed problem with front-side heartbeats and mixed clusters (David Zafman)

  • ceph-fuse, libcephfs: fix read zeroing at EOF
  • ceph-conf: –show-config-value now reflects daemon defaults
  • ceph-disk: simpler, more robust locking
  • ceph-disk: avoid mounting over an existing osd in /var/lib/ceph/osd/*
  • sysvinit: handle symlinks in /var/lib/ceph/osd/*

v0.65

Upgrading

  • Huge revamp of the ‘ceph’ command-line interface implementation. The ceph-common client library needs to be upgrade before ceph-mon is restarted in order to avoid problems using the CLI (the old ceph client utility cannot talk to the new ceph-mon).

  • The CLI is now very careful about sending the ‘status’ one-liner output to stderr and command output to stdout. Scripts relying on output should take care.

  • The ‘ceph osd tell …’ and ‘ceph mon tell …’ commands are no longer supported. Any callers should use:

    ceph tell osd.<id or *> ...
    ceph tell mon.<id or name or *> ...
    

    The ‘ceph mds tell …’ command is still there, but will soon also transition to ‘ceph tell mds.<id or name or *> …’

  • The ‘ceph osd crush add …’ command used to take one of two forms:

    ceph osd crush add 123 osd.123 <weight> <location ...>
    ceph osd crush add osd.123 <weight> <location ...>
    

    This is because the id and crush name are redundant. Now only the simple form is supported, where the osd name/id can either be a bare id (integer) or name (osd.<id>):

    ceph osd crush add osd.123 <weight> <location ...>
    ceph osd crush add 123 <weight> <location ...>
    
  • There is now a maximum RADOS object size, configurable via ‘osd max object size’, defaulting to 100 GB. Note that this has no effect on RBD, CephFS, or radosgw, which all stripe over objects.

Notable changes

  • mon, ceph: huge revamp of CLI and internal admin API. (Dan Mick)
  • mon: new capability syntax
  • osd: do not use fadvise(DONTNEED) on XFS (data corruption on power cycle)

  • daemons: create /var/run/ceph as needed

v0.64

Upgrading

  • New pools now have the HASHPSPOOL flag set by default to provide better distribution over OSDs. Support for this feature was introduced in v0.59 and Linux kernel version v3.9. If you wish to access the cluster from an older kernel, set the ‘osd pool default flag hashpspool = false’ option in your ceph.conf prior to creating the cluster or creating new pools. Note that the presense of any pool in the cluster with the flag enabled will make the OSD require support from all clients.

v0.63

Upgrading

  • The ‘osd min down {reporters|reports}’ config options have been renamed to ‘mon osd min down {reporters|reports}’, and the documentation has been updated to reflect that these options apply to the monitors (who process failure reports) and not OSDs. If you have adjusted these settings, please update your ceph.conf accordingly.
