v9.2.1 Infernalis

This Infernalis point release fixes several packagins and init script issues, enables the librbd objectmap feature by default, a few librbd bugs, and a range of miscellaneous bug fixes across the system.

We recommend that all infernalis v9.2.0 users upgrade.

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

Upgrading

  • Some symbols wrongly exposed by the C++ interface for librados in v9.1.0 and v9.2.0 were removed. If you compiled your own application against librados shipped with these releases, it is very likely referencing these removed symbols. So you will need to recompile it.

v9.2.0 Infernalis

This major release will be the foundation for the next stable series. There have been some major changes since v0.94.x Hammer, and the upgrade process is non-trivial. Please read these release notes carefully.

Major Changes from Hammer

  • General:
    • Ceph daemons are now managed via systemd (with the exception of Ubuntu Trusty, which still uses upstart).
    • Ceph daemons run as ‘ceph’ user instead root.
    • On Red Hat distros, there is also an SELinux policy.
  • RADOS:
    • The RADOS cache tier can now proxy write operations to the base tier, allowing writes to be handled without forcing migration of an object into the cache.
    • The SHEC erasure coding support is no longer flagged as experimental. SHEC trades some additional storage space for faster repair.
    • There is now a unified queue (and thus prioritization) of client IO, recovery, scrubbing, and snapshot trimming.
    • There have been many improvements to low-level repair tooling (ceph-objectstore-tool).
    • The internal ObjectStore API has been significantly cleaned up in order to faciliate new storage backends like NewStore.
  • RGW:
    • The Swift API now supports object expiration.
    • There are many Swift API compatibility improvements.
  • RBD:
    • The rbd du command shows actual usage (quickly, when object-map is enabled).
    • The object-map feature has seen many stability improvements.
    • Object-map and exclusive-lock features can be enabled or disabled dynamically.
    • You can now store user metadata and set persistent librbd options associated with individual images.
    • The new deep-flatten features allows flattening of a clone and all of its snapshots. (Previously snapshots could not be flattened.)
    • The export-diff command command is now faster (it uses aio). There is also a new fast-diff feature.
    • The –size argument can be specified with a suffix for units (e.g., --size 64G).
    • There is a new rbd status command that, for now, shows who has the image open/mapped.
  • CephFS:
    • You can now rename snapshots.
    • There have been ongoing improvements around administration, diagnostics, and the check and repair tools.
    • The caching and revocation of client cache state due to unused inodes has been dramatically improved.
    • The ceph-fuse client behaves better on 32-bit hosts.

Distro compatibility

We have decided to drop support for many older distributions so that we can move to a newer compiler toolchain (e.g., C++11). Although it is still possible to build Ceph on older distributions by installing backported development tools, we are not building and publishing release packages for ceph.com.

We now build packages for:

  • CentOS 7 or later. We have dropped support for CentOS 6 (and other RHEL 6 derivatives, like Scientific Linux 6).
  • Debian Jessie 8.x or later. Debian Wheezy 7.x’s g++ has incomplete support for C++11 (and no systemd).
  • Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 or later. Ubuntu Precise 12.04 is no longer supported.
  • Fedora 22 or later.

Upgrading from Firefly

Upgrading directly from Firefly v0.80.z is not recommended. It is possible to do a direct upgrade, but not without downtime. We recommend that clusters are first upgraded to Hammer v0.94.4 or a later v0.94.z release; only then is it possible to upgrade to Infernalis 9.2.z for an online upgrade (see below).

To do an offline upgrade directly from Firefly, all Firefly OSDs must be stopped and marked down before any Infernalis OSDs will be allowed to start up. This fencing is enforced by the Infernalis monitor, so use an upgrade procedure like:

  1. Upgrade Ceph on monitor hosts

  2. Restart all ceph-mon daemons

  3. Upgrade Ceph on all OSD hosts

  4. Stop all ceph-osd daemons

  5. Mark all OSDs down with something like:

    ceph osd down `seq 0 1000`
    
  6. Start all ceph-osd daemons

  7. Upgrade and restart remaining daemons (ceph-mds, radosgw)

Upgrading from Hammer

  • All cluster nodes must first upgrade to Hammer v0.94.4 or a later v0.94.z release; only then is it possible to upgrade to Infernalis 9.2.z.

  • For all distributions that support systemd (CentOS 7, Fedora, Debian Jessie 8.x, OpenSUSE), ceph daemons are now managed using native systemd files instead of the legacy sysvinit scripts. For example:

    systemctl start ceph.target       # start all daemons
    systemctl status ceph-osd@12      # check status of osd.12
    

    The main notable distro that is not yet using systemd is Ubuntu trusty 14.04. (The next Ubuntu LTS, 16.04, will use systemd instead of upstart.)

  • Ceph daemons now run as user and group ceph by default. The ceph user has a static UID assigned by Fedora and Debian (also used by derivative distributions like RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu). On SUSE the ceph user will currently get a dynamically assigned UID when the user is created.

    If your systems already have a ceph user, upgrading the package will cause problems. We suggest you first remove or rename the existing ‘ceph’ user and ‘ceph’ group before upgrading.

    When upgrading, administrators have two options:

    1. Add the following line to ceph.conf on all hosts:

      setuser match path = /var/lib/ceph/$type/$cluster-$id
      

      This will make the Ceph daemons run as root (i.e., not drop privileges and switch to user ceph) if the daemon’s data directory is still owned by root. Newly deployed daemons will be created with data owned by user ceph and will run with reduced privileges, but upgraded daemons will continue to run as root.

    2. Fix the data ownership during the upgrade. This is the preferred option, but it is more work and can be very time consuming. The process for each host is to:

    3. Upgrade the ceph package. This creates the ceph user and group. For example:

      ceph-deploy install --stable infernalis HOST
      
      1. Stop the daemon(s):

        service ceph stop           # fedora, centos, rhel, debian
        stop ceph-all               # ubuntu
        
      2. Fix the ownership:

        chown -R ceph:ceph /var/lib/ceph
        chown -R ceph:ceph /var/log/ceph
        
      3. Restart the daemon(s):

        start ceph-all                # ubuntu
        systemctl start ceph.target   # debian, centos, fedora, rhel
        

      Alternatively, the same process can be done with a single daemon type, for example by stopping only monitors and chowning only /var/lib/ceph/mon.

  • The on-disk format for the experimental KeyValueStore OSD backend has changed. You will need to remove any OSDs using that backend before you upgrade any test clusters that use it.

  • When a pool quota is reached, librados operations now block indefinitely, the same way they do when the cluster fills up. (Previously they would return -ENOSPC). By default, a full cluster or pool will now block. If your librados application can handle ENOSPC or EDQUOT errors gracefully, you can get error returns instead by using the new librados OPERATION_FULL_TRY flag.

  • The return code for librbd’s rbd_aio_read and Image::aio_read API methods no longer returns the number of bytes read upon success. Instead, it returns 0 upon success and a negative value upon failure.

  • ‘ceph scrub’, ‘ceph compact’ and ‘ceph sync force are now DEPRECATED. Users should instead use ‘ceph mon scrub’, ‘ceph mon compact’ and ‘ceph mon sync force’.

  • ‘ceph mon_metadata’ should now be used as ‘ceph mon metadata’. There is no need to deprecate this command (same major release since it was first introduced).

  • The –dump-json option of “osdmaptool” is replaced by –dump json.

  • The commands of “pg ls-by-{pool,primary,osd}” and “pg ls” now take “recovering” instead of “recovery”, to include the recovering pgs in the listed pgs.

v9.1.0 Infernalis release candidate

This is the first Infernalis release candidate. There have been some major changes since Hammer, and the upgrade process is non-trivial. Please read carefully.

Getting the release candidate

The v9.1.0 packages are pushed to the development release repositories:

http://download.ceph.com/rpm-testing
http://download.ceph.com/debian-testing

For for info, see:

http://docs.ceph.com/docs/master/install/get-packages/

Or install with ceph-deploy via:

ceph-deploy install --testing HOST

Known issues

  • librbd and librados ABI compatibility is broken. Be careful installing this RC on client machines (e.g., those running qemu). It will be fixed in the final v9.2.0 release.

Major Changes from Hammer

  • General:
    • Ceph daemons are now managed via systemd (with the exception of Ubuntu Trusty, which still uses upstart).
    • Ceph daemons run as ‘ceph’ user instead of root.
    • On Red Hat distros, there is also an SELinux policy.
  • RADOS:
    • The RADOS cache tier can now proxy write operations to the base tier, allowing writes to be handled without forcing migration of an object into the cache.
    • The SHEC erasure coding support is no longer flagged as experimental. SHEC trades some additional storage space for faster repair.
    • There is now a unified queue (and thus prioritization) of client IO, scrubbing, and snapshot trimming.
    • There have been many improvements to low-level repair tooling (ceph-objectstore-tool).
    • The internal ObjectStore API has been significantly cleaned up in order to faciliate new storage backends like NewStore.
  • RGW:
    • The Swift API now supports object expiration.
    • There are many Swift API compatibility improvements.
  • RBD:
    • The rbd du command shows actual usage (quickly, when object-map is enabled).
    • The object-map feature has seen many stability improvements.
    • Object-map and exclusive-lock features can be enabled or disabled dynamically.
    • You can now store user metadata and set persistent librbd options associated with individual images.
    • The new deep-flatten features allows flattening of a clone and all of its snapshots. (Previously snapshots could not be flattened.)
    • The export-diff command command is now faster (it uses aio). There is also a new fast-diff feature.
    • The –size argument can be specified with a suffix for units (e.g., --size 64G).
    • There is a new rbd status command that, for now, shows who has the image open/mapped.
  • CephFS:
    • You can now rename snapshots.
    • There have been ongoing improvements around administration, diagnostics, and the check and repair tools.
    • The caching and revocation of client cache state due to unused inodes has been dramatically improved.
    • The ceph-fuse client behaves better on 32-bit hosts.

Distro compatibility

We have decided to drop support for many older distributions so that we can move to a newer compiler toolchain (e.g., C++11). Although it is still possible to build Ceph on older distributions by installing backported development tools, we are not building and publishing release packages for them on ceph.com.

In particular,

  • CentOS 7 or later; we have dropped support for CentOS 6 (and other RHEL 6 derivatives, like Scientific Linux 6).
  • Debian Jessie 8.x or later; Debian Wheezy 7.x’s g++ has incomplete support for C++11 (and no systemd).
  • Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 or later; Ubuntu Precise 12.04 is no longer supported.
  • Fedora 22 or later.

Upgrading from Firefly

Upgrading directly from Firefly v0.80.z is not possible. All clusters must first upgrade to Hammer v0.94.4 or a later v0.94.z release; only then is it possible to do online upgrade to Infernalis 9.2.z.

User can upgrade to latest hammer v0.94.z from gitbuilder with(also refer the hammer release notes for more details):

ceph-deploy install --release hammer HOST

Upgrading from Hammer

  • All cluster nodes must first upgrade to Hammer v0.94.4 or a later v0.94.z release; only then is it possible to do online upgrade to Infernalis 9.2.z.

  • For all distributions that support systemd (CentOS 7, Fedora, Debian Jessie 8.x, OpenSUSE), ceph daemons are now managed using native systemd files instead of the legacy sysvinit scripts. For example:

    systemctl start ceph.target       # start all daemons
    systemctl status ceph-osd@12      # check status of osd.12
    

    The main notable distro that is not yet using systemd is Ubuntu trusty 14.04. (The next Ubuntu LTS, 16.04, will use systemd instead of upstart.)

  • Ceph daemons now run as user and group ceph by default. The ceph user has a static UID assigned by Fedora and Debian (also used by derivative distributions like RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu). On SUSE the ceph user will currently get a dynamically assigned UID when the user is created.

    If your systems already have a ceph user, the package upgrade process will usually fail with an error. We suggest you first remove or rename the existing ‘ceph’ user and then upgrade.

    When upgrading, administrators have two options:

    1. Add the following line to ceph.conf on all hosts:

      setuser match path = /var/lib/ceph/$type/$cluster-$id
      

      This will make the Ceph daemons run as root (i.e., not drop privileges and switch to user ceph) if the daemon’s data directory is still owned by root. Newly deployed daemons will be created with data owned by user ceph and will run with reduced privileges, but upgraded daemons will continue to run as root.

    2. Fix the data ownership during the upgrade. This is the preferred option, but is more work. The process for each host would be to:

      1. Upgrade the ceph package. This creates the ceph user and group. For example:

        ceph-deploy install --stable infernalis HOST
        
      2. Stop the daemon(s):

        service ceph stop           # fedora, centos, rhel, debian
        stop ceph-all               # ubuntu
        
      3. Fix the ownership:

        chown -R ceph:ceph /var/lib/ceph
        chown -R ceph:ceph /var/log/ceph
        
      4. Restart the daemon(s):

        start ceph-all                # ubuntu
        systemctl start ceph.target   # debian, centos, fedora, rhel
        
  • The on-disk format for the experimental KeyValueStore OSD backend has changed. You will need to remove any OSDs using that backend before you upgrade any test clusters that use it.

  • When a pool quota is reached, librados operations now block indefinitely, the same way they do when the cluster fills up. (Previously they would return -ENOSPC). By default, a full cluster or pool will now block. If your librados application can handle ENOSPC or EDQUOT errors gracefully, you can get error returns instead by using the new librados OPERATION_FULL_TRY flag.

v9.0.3

This is the second to last batch of development work for the Infernalis cycle. The most intrusive change is an internal (non user-visible) change to the OSD’s ObjectStore interface. Many fixes and improvements elsewhere across RGW, RBD, and another big pile of CephFS scrub/repair improvements.

Upgrading

  • The return code for librbd’s rbd_aio_read and Image::aio_read API methods no longer returns the number of bytes read upon success. Instead, it returns 0 upon success and a negative value upon failure.
  • ‘ceph scrub’, ‘ceph compact’ and ‘ceph sync force’ are now deprecated. Users should instead use ‘ceph mon scrub’, ‘ceph mon compact’ and ‘ceph mon sync force’.
  • ‘ceph mon_metadata’ should now be used as ‘ceph mon metadata’.
  • The –dump-json option of “osdmaptool” is replaced by –dump json.
  • The commands of ‘pg ls-by-{pool,primary,osd}’ and ‘pg ls’ now take ‘recovering’ instead of ‘recovery’ to include the recovering pgs in the listed pgs.

v9.0.0

This is the first development release for the Infernalis cycle, and the first Ceph release to sport a version number from the new numbering scheme. The “9” indicates this is the 9th release cycle–I (for Infernalis) is the 9th letter. The first “0” indicates this is a development release (“1” will mean release candidate and “2” will mean stable release), and the final “0” indicates this is the first such development release.

A few highlights include:

  • a new ‘ceph daemonperf’ command to watch perfcounter stats in realtime
  • reduced MDS memory usage
  • many MDS snapshot fixes
  • librbd can now store options in the image itself
  • many fixes for RGW Swift API support
  • OSD performance improvements
  • many doc updates and misc bug fixes
