Notice

This document is for a development version of Ceph.

Cuttlefish

Cuttlefish is the 3rd stable release of Ceph. It is named after a type of cephalopod (order Sepiida) characterized by a unique internal shell, the cuttlebone, which is used for control of bouyancy.

v0.61.8 “Cuttlefish”

This release includes a number of important issues, including rare race conditions in the OSD, a few monitor bugs, and fixes for RBD flush behavior. We recommend that production users upgrade at their convenience.

Notable Changes

  • librados: fix async aio completion wakeup

  • librados: fix aio completion locking

  • librados: fix rare deadlock during shutdown

  • osd: fix race when queueing recovery operations

  • osd: fix possible race during recovery

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.61.7 “Cuttlefish”

This release fixes another regression preventing monitors to start after undergoing certain upgrade sequences, as well as some corner cases with Paxos and support for unusual device names in ceph-disk/ceph-deploy.

Notable Changes

  • mon: fix regression in latest full osdmap retrieval

  • mon: fix a long-standing bug in a paxos corner case

  • ceph-disk: improved support for unusual device names (e.g., /dev/cciss/c0d0)

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.61.6 “Cuttlefish”

This release fixes a regression in v0.61.5 that could prevent monitors from restarting. This affects any cluster that was upgraded from a previous version of Ceph (and not freshly created with v0.61.5).

All users are strongly recommended to upgrade.

Notable Changes

  • mon: record latest full osdmap

  • mon: work around previous bug in which latest full osdmap is not recorded

  • mon: avoid scrub while updating

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.61.5 “Cuttlefish”

This release most improves stability of the monitor and fixes a few bugs with the ceph-disk utility (used by ceph-deploy). We recommend that all v0.61.x users upgrade.

Upgrading

  • This release fixes a 32-bit vs 64-bit arithmetic bug with the feature bits. An unfortunate consequence of the fix is that 0.61.4 (or earlier) ceph-mon daemons can’t form a quorum with 0.61.5 (or later) monitors. To avoid the possibility of service disruption, we recommend you upgrade all monitors at once.

Notable Changes

  • mon: misc sync improvements (faster, more reliable, better tuning)

  • mon: enable leveldb cache by default (big performance improvement)

  • mon: new scrub feature (primarily for diagnostic, testing purposes)

  • mon: fix occasional leveldb assertion on startup

  • mon: prevent reads until initial state is committed

  • mon: improved logic for trimming old osdmaps

  • mon: fix pick_addresses bug when expanding mon cluster

  • mon: several small paxos fixes, improvements

  • mon: fix bug osdmap trim behavior

  • osd: fix several bugs with PG stat reporting

  • rgw: fix radosgw-admin buckets list (for all buckets)

  • mds: fix occasional client failure to reconnect

  • mds: fix bad list traversal after unlink

  • mds: fix underwater dentry cleanup (occasional crash after mds restart)

  • libcephfs, ceph-fuse: fix occasional hangs on umount

  • libcephfs, ceph-fuse: fix old bug with O_LAZY vs O_NOATIME confusion

  • ceph-disk: more robust journal device detection on RHEL/CentOS

  • ceph-disk: better, simpler locking

  • ceph-disk: do not inadvertantely mount over existing osd mounts

  • ceph-disk: better handling for unusual device names

  • sysvinit, upstart: handle symlinks in /var/lib/ceph/*

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.61.4 “Cuttlefish”

This release resolves a possible data corruption on power-cycle when using XFS, a few outstanding problems with monitor sync, several problems with ceph-disk and ceph-deploy operation, and a problem with OSD memory usage during scrub.

Upgrading

  • No issues.

Notable Changes

  • mon: fix daemon exit behavior when error is encountered on startup

  • mon: more robust sync behavior

  • osd: do not use sync_file_range(2), posix_fadvise(…DONTNEED) (can cause data corruption on power loss on XFS)

  • osd: avoid unnecessary log rewrite (improves peering speed)

  • osd: fix scrub efficiency bug (problematic on old clusters)

  • ceph-fuse, libcephfs: handle mds session reset during session open

  • ceph-fuse, libcephfs: fix two capability revocation bugs

  • ceph-fuse: fix thread creation on startup

  • all daemons: create /var/run/ceph directory on startup if missing

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.61.3 “Cuttlefish”

This release resolves a number of problems with the monitors and leveldb that users have been seeing. Please upgrade.

Upgrading

  • There is one known problem with mon upgrades from bobtail. If the ceph-mon conversion on startup is aborted or fails for some reason, we do not correctly error out, but instead continue with (in certain cases) odd results. Please be careful if you have to restart the mons during the upgrade. A 0.61.4 release with a fix will be out shortly.

  • In the meantime, for current cuttlefish users, v0.61.3 is safe to use.

Notable Changes

  • mon: paxos state trimming fix (resolves runaway disk usage)

  • mon: finer-grained compaction on trim

  • mon: discard messages from disconnected clients (lowers load)

  • mon: leveldb compaction and other stats available via admin socket

  • mon: async compaction (lower overhead)

  • mon: fix bug incorrectly marking osds down with insufficient failure reports

  • osd: fixed small bug in pg request map

  • osd: avoid rewriting pg info on every osdmap

  • osd: avoid internal heartbeta timeouts when scrubbing very large objects

  • rgw: fix iteration over large/untrimmed usage logs

  • rgw: fix locking issue with ops log socket

  • rgw: require matching version of librados

  • librbd: make image creation defaults configurable (e.g., create format 2 images via qemu-img)

  • fix units in ‘ceph df’ output

  • debian: fix prerm/postinst hooks to start/stop daemons appropriately

  • upstart: allow uppercase daemons names (and thus hostnames)

  • sysvinit: fix enumeration of local daemons by type

  • sysvinit: fix osd weight calcuation when using -a

  • fix build on unsigned char platforms (e.g., arm)

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.61.2 “Cuttlefish”

This release disables a monitor debug log that consumes disk space and fixes a bug when upgrade some monitors from bobtail to cuttlefish.

Notable Changes

  • mon: fix conversion of stores with duplicated GV values

  • mon: disable ‘mon debug dump transactions’ by default

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.61.1 “Cuttlefish”

This release fixes a problem when upgrading a bobtail cluster that had snapshots to cuttlefish.

Notable Changes

  • osd: handle upgrade when legacy snap collections are present; repair from previous failed restart

  • ceph-create-keys: fix race with ceph-mon startup (which broke ‘ceph-deploy gatherkeys …’)

  • mon: debug options to log or dump leveldb transactions

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.61 “Cuttlefish”

Upgrading from v0.60

  • The ceph-deploy tool is now the preferred method of provisioning new clusters. For existing clusters created via mkcephfs that would like to transition to the new tool, there is a migration path, documented at Transitioning to ceph-deploy.

  • The sysvinit script (/etc/init.d/ceph) will now verify (and, if necessary, update) the OSD’s position in the CRUSH map on startup. (The upstart script has always worked this way.) By default, this ensures that the OSD is under a ‘host’ with a name that matches the hostname (hostname -s). Legacy clusters create with mkcephfs do this by default, so this should not cause any problems, but legacy clusters with customized CRUSH maps with an alternate structure should set osd crush update on start = false.

  • radosgw-admin now uses the term zone instead of cluster to describe each instance of the radosgw data store (and corresponding collection of radosgw daemons). The usage for the radosgw-admin command and the ‘rgw zone root pool’ config options have changed accordingly.

  • rbd progress indicators now go to standard error instead of standard out. (You can disable progress with –no-progress.)

  • The ‘rbd resize …’ command now requires the –allow-shrink option when resizing to a smaller size. Expanding images to a larger size is unchanged.

  • Please review the changes going back to 0.56.4 if you are upgrading all the way from bobtail.

  • The old ‘ceph stop_cluster’ command has been removed.

  • The sysvinit script now uses the ceph.conf file on the remote host when starting remote daemons via the ‘-a’ option. Note that if ‘-a’ is used in conjunction with ‘-c path’, the path must also be present on the remote host (it is not copied to a temporary file, as it was previously).

Upgrading from v0.56.4 “Bobtail”

Please see Upgrading from Bobtail to Cuttlefish for details.

  • The ceph-deploy tool is now the preferred method of provisioning new clusters. For existing clusters created via mkcephfs that would like to transition to the new tool, there is a migration path, documented at Transitioning to ceph-deploy.

  • The monitor is using a completely new storage strategy and intra-cluster protocol. This means that cuttlefish and bobtail monitors do not talk to each other. When you upgrade each one, it will convert its local data store to the new format. Once you upgrade a majority, the quorum will be formed using the new protocol and the old monitors will be blocked out until they too get upgraded. For this reason, we recommend not running a mixed-version cluster for very long.

  • ceph-mon now requires the creation of its data directory prior to –mkfs, similarly to what happens on ceph-osd. This directory is no longer automatically created, and custom scripts should be adjusted to reflect just that.

  • The monitor now enforces that MDS names be unique. If you have multiple daemons start with with the same id (e.g., mds.a) the second one will implicitly mark the first as failed. This makes things less confusing and makes a daemon restart faster (we no longer wait for the stopped daemon to time out) but existing multi-mds configurations may need to be adjusted accordingly to give daemons unique names.

  • The ‘ceph osd pool delete <poolname>’ and ‘rados rmpool <poolname>’ now have safety interlocks with loud warnings that make you confirm pool removal. Any scripts currently rely on these functions zapping data without confirmation need to be adjusted accordingly.

v0.57

This development release has a lot of additional functionality accumulated over the last couple months. Most of the bug fixes (with the notable exception of the MDS related work) has already been backported to v0.56.x, and is not mentioned here.

Upgrading

  • The ‘ceph osd pool delete <poolname>’ and ‘rados rmpool <poolname>’ now have safety interlocks with loud warnings that make you confirm pool removal. Any scripts currently rely on these functions zapping data without confirmation need to be adjusted accordingly.

Notable Changes

  • osd: default to libaio for the journal (some performance boost)

  • osd: validate snap collections on startup

  • osd: ceph-filestore-dump tool for debugging

  • osd: deep-scrub omap keys/values

  • ceph tool: some CLI interface cleanups

  • mon: easy adjustment of crush tunables via ‘ceph osd crush tunables …’

  • mon: easy creation of crush rules vai ‘ceph osd rule …’

  • mon: approximate recovery, IO workload stats

  • mon: avoid marking entire CRUSH subtrees out (e.g., if an entire rack goes offline)

  • mon: safety check for pool deletion

  • mon: new checks for identifying and reporting clock drift

  • radosgw: misc fixes

  • rbd: wait for udev to settle in strategic places (avoid spurious errors, failures)

  • rbd-fuse: new tool, package

  • mds, ceph-fuse: manage layouts via xattrs

  • mds: misc bug fixes with clustered MDSs and failure recovery

  • mds: misc bug fixes with readdir

  • libcephfs: many fixes, cleanups with the Java bindings

  • auth: ability to require new cephx signatures on messages (still off by default)
