Release Notes

v0.86

This is a release candidate for Giant, which will hopefully be out in another week or two. We did a feature freeze about a month ago and since then have been doing only stabilization and bug fixing (and a handful on low-risk enhancements). A fair bit of new functionality went into the final sprint, but it’s baked for quite a while now and we’re feeling pretty good about it.

Major items include:

  • librados locking refactor to improve scaling and client performance
  • local recovery code (LRC) erasure code plugin to trade some additional storage overhead for improved recovery performance
  • LTTNG tracing framework, with initial tracepoints in librados, librbd, and the OSD FileStore backend
  • separate monitor audit log for all administrative commands
  • asynchronos monitor transaction commits to reduce the impact on monitor read requests while processing updates
  • low-level tool for working with individual OSD data stores for debugging, recovery, and testing
  • many MDS improvements (bug fixes, health reporting)

There are still a handful of known bugs in this release, but nothing severe enough to prevent a release. By and large we are pretty pleased with the stability and expect the final Giant release to be quite reliable.

Please try this out on your non-production clusters for a preview

v0.85

This is the second-to-last development release before Giant that contains new functionality. The big items to land during this cycle are the messenger refactoring from Matt Benjmain that lays some groundwork for RDMA support, a performance improvement series from SanDisk that improves performance on SSDs, lots of improvements to our new standalone civetweb-based RGW frontend, and a new ‘osd blocked-by’ mon command that allows admins to easily identify which OSDs are blocking peering progress. The other big change is that the OSDs and Monitors now distinguish between “misplaced” and “degraded” objects: the latter means there are fewer copies than we’d like, while the former simply means the are not stored in the locations where we want them to be.

Also of note is a change to librbd that enables client-side caching by default. This is coupled with another option that makes the cache write-through until a “flush” operations is observed: this implies that the librbd user (usually a VM guest OS) supports barriers and flush and that it is safe for the cache to switch into writeback mode without compromising data safety or integrity. It has long been recommended practice that these options be enabled (e.g., in OpenStack environments) but until now it has not been the default.

We have frozen the tree for the looming Giant release, and the next development release will be a release candidate with a final batch of new functionality.

Upgrading

  • The client-side caching for librbd is now enabled by default (rbd cache = true). A safety option (rbd cache writethrough until flush = true) is also enabled so that writeback caching is not used until the library observes a ‘flush’ command, indicating that the librbd users is passing that operation through from the guest VM. This avoids potential data loss when used with older versions of qemu that do not support flush.

    leveldb_write_buffer_size = 32*1024*1024 = 33554432 // 32MB leveldb_cache_size = 512*1024*1204 = 536870912 // 512MB leveldb_block_size = 64*1024 = 65536 // 64KB leveldb_compression = false leveldb_log = “”

    OSDs will still maintain the following osd-specific defaults:

    leveldb_log = “”

  • The ‘rados getxattr ...’ command used to add a gratuitous newline to the attr value; it now does not.

v0.84

The next Ceph development release is here! This release contains several meaty items, including some MDS improvements for journaling, the ability to remove the CephFS file system (and name it), several mon cleanups with tiered pools, several OSD performance branches, a new “read forward” RADOS caching mode, a prototype Kinetic OSD backend, and various radosgw improvements (especially with the new standalone civetweb frontend). And there are a zillion OSD bug fixes. Things are looking pretty good for the Giant release that is coming up in the next month.

Upgrading

  • The *_kb perf counters on the monitor have been removed. These are replaced with a new set of *_bytes counters (e.g., cluster_osd_kb is replaced by cluster_osd_bytes).
  • The rd_kb and wr_kb fields in the JSON dumps for pool stats (accessed via the ceph df detail -f json-pretty and related commands) have been replaced with corresponding *_bytes fields. Similarly, the total_space, total_used, and total_avail fields are replaced with total_bytes, total_used_bytes, and total_avail_bytes fields.
  • The rados df --format=json output read_bytes and write_bytes fields were incorrectly reporting ops; this is now fixed.
  • The rados df --format=json output previously included read_kb and write_kb fields; these have been removed. Please use read_bytes and write_bytes instead (and divide by 1024 if appropriate).

v0.83

Another Ceph development release! This has been a longer cycle, so there has been quite a bit of bug fixing and stabilization in this round. There is also a bunch of packaging fixes for RPM distros (RHEL/CentOS, Fedora, and SUSE) and for systemd. We’ve also added a new librados-striper library from Sebastien Ponce that provides a generic striping API for applications to code to.

Upgrading

  • The experimental keyvaluestore-dev OSD backend had an on-disk format change that prevents existing OSD data from being upgraded. This affects developers and testers only.

  • mon-specific and osd-specific leveldb options have been removed. From this point onward users should use the leveldb_* generic options and add the options in the appropriate sections of their configuration files. Monitors will still maintain the following monitor-specific defaults:

    leveldb_write_buffer_size = 32*1024*1024 = 33554432 // 32MB leveldb_cache_size = 512*1024*1204 = 536870912 // 512MB leveldb_block_size = 64*1024 = 65536 // 64KB leveldb_compression = false leveldb_log = “”

    OSDs will still maintain the following osd-specific defaults:

    leveldb_log = “”

v0.81

This is the first development release since Firefly. It includes a lot of work that we delayed merging while stabilizing things. Lots of new functionality, as well as several fixes that are baking a bit before getting backported.

Upgrading

  • CephFS support for the legacy anchor table has finally been removed. Users with file systems created before firefly should ensure that inodes with multiple hard links are modified prior to the upgrade to ensure that the backtraces are written properly. For example:

    sudo find /mnt/cephfs -type f -links +1 -exec touch \{\} \;
  • Disallow nonsensical ‘tier cache-mode’ transitions. From this point onward, ‘writeback’ can only transition to ‘forward’ and ‘forward’ can transition to 1) ‘writeback’ if there are dirty objects, or 2) any if there are no dirty objects.

v0.80.5 Firefly

We recommend that all v0.80.x Firefly users upgrade, particularly if they are using upstart, systemd, or radosgw.

Notable Changes

  • ceph-dencoder: do not needlessly link to librgw, librados, etc. (Sage Weil)

  • rgw: improve delimited bucket listing (Yehuda Sadeh)
  • rpm: do not restart daemons on upgrade (#8849, Alfredo Deza)

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.80.4 Firefly

This Firefly point release fixes an potential data corruption problem when ceph-osd daemons run on top of XFS and service Firefly librbd clients. A recently added allocation hint that RBD utilizes triggers an XFS bug on some kernels (Linux 3.2, and likely others) that leads to data corruption and deep-scrub errors (and inconsistent PGs). This release avoids the situation by disabling the allocation hint until we can validate which kernels are affected and/or are known to be safe to use the hint on.

We recommend that all v0.80.x Firefly users urgently upgrade, especially if they are using RBD.

Notable Changes

  • osd: disable XFS extsize hint by default (#8830, Samuel Just)
  • rgw: fix extra data pool default name (Yehuda Sadeh)

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.80.3 Firefly

This is the third Firefly point release. It includes a single fix for a radosgw regression that was discovered in v0.80.2 right after it was released.

We recommand that all v0.80.x Firefly users upgrade.

Notable Changes

  • radosgw: fix regression in manifest decoding (#8804, Sage Weil)

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.80.2 Firefly

This is the second Firefly point release. It contains a range of important fixes, including several bugs in the OSD cache tiering, some compatibility checks that affect upgrade situations, several radosgw bugs, and an irritating and unnecessary feature bit check that prevents older clients from communicating with a cluster with any erasure coded pools.

One someone large change in this point release is that the ceph RPM package is separated into a ceph and ceph-common package, similar to Debian. The ceph-common package contains just the client libraries without any of the server-side daemons.

We recommend that all v0.80.x Firefly users skip this release and use v0.80.3.

Notable Changes

  • ceph-disk: better debug logging (Alfredo Deza)

v0.80.1 Firefly

This first Firefly point release fixes a few bugs, the most visible being a problem that prevents scrub from completing in some cases.

Notable Changes

v0.80 Firefly

This release will form the basis for our long-term supported release Firefly, v0.80.x. The big new features are support for erasure coding and cache tiering, although a broad range of other features, fixes, and improvements have been made across the code base. Highlights include:

  • Erasure coding: support for a broad range of erasure codes for lower storage overhead and better data durability.
  • Cache tiering: support for creating ‘cache pools’ that store hot, recently accessed objects with automatic demotion of colder data to a base tier. Typically the cache pool is backed by faster storage devices like SSDs.
  • Primary affinity: Ceph now has the ability to skew selection of OSDs as the “primary” copy, which allows the read workload to be cheaply skewed away from parts of the cluster without migrating any data.
  • Key/value OSD backend (experimental): An alternative storage backend for Ceph OSD processes that puts all data in a key/value database like leveldb. This provides better performance for workloads dominated by key/value operations (like radosgw bucket indices).
  • Standalone radosgw (experimental): The radosgw process can now run in a standalone mode without an apache (or similar) web server or fastcgi. This simplifies deployment and can improve performance.

We expect to maintain a series of stable releases based on v0.80 Firefly for as much as a year. In the meantime, development of Ceph continues with the next release, Giant, which will feature work on the CephFS distributed file system, more alternative storage backends (like RocksDB and f2fs), RDMA support, support for pyramid erasure codes, and additional functionality in the block device (RBD) like copy-on-read and multisite mirroring.

Upgrade Sequencing

  • If your existing cluster is running a version older than v0.67 Dumpling, please first upgrade to the latest Dumpling release before upgrading to v0.80 Firefly. Please refer to the Dumpling upgrade documentation.

  • We recommand adding the following to the [mon] section of your ceph.conf prior to upgrade:

    mon warn on legacy crush tunables = false

    This will prevent health warnings due to the use of legacy CRUSH placement. Although it is possible to rebalance existing data across your cluster (see the upgrade notes below), we do not normally recommend it for production environments as a large amount of data will move and there is a significant performance impact from the rebalancing.

  • Upgrade daemons in the following order:

    1. Monitors
    2. OSDs
    3. MDSs and/or radosgw

    If the ceph-mds daemon is restarted first, it will wait until all OSDs have been upgraded before finishing its startup sequence. If the ceph-mon daemons are not restarted prior to the ceph-osd daemons, they will not correctly register their new capabilities with the cluster and new features may not be usable until they are restarted a second time.

  • Upgrade radosgw daemons together. There is a subtle change in behavior for multipart uploads that prevents a multipart request that was initiated with a new radosgw from being completed by an old radosgw.

Upgrading from v0.79

  • OSDMap’s json-formatted dump changed for keys ‘full’ and ‘nearfull’. What was previously being outputted as ‘true’ or ‘false’ strings are now being outputted ‘true’ and ‘false’ booleans according to json syntax.
  • HEALTH_WARN on ‘mon osd down out interval == 0’. Having this option set to zero on the leader acts much like having the ‘noout’ flag set. This warning will only be reported if the monitor getting the ‘health’ or ‘status’ request has this option set to zero.
  • Monitor ‘auth’ commands now require the mon ‘x’ capability. This matches dumpling v0.67.x and earlier, but differs from emperor v0.72.x.
  • A librados WATCH operation on a non-existent object now returns ENOENT; previously it did not.
  • Librados interface change: As there are no partial writes, the rados_write() and rados_append() operations now return 0 on success like rados_write_full() always has. This includes the C++ interface equivalents and AIO return values for the aio variants.
  • The radosgw init script (sysvinit) how requires that the ‘host = ...’ line in ceph.conf, if present, match the short hostname (the output of ‘hostname -s’), not the fully qualified hostname or the (occasionally non-short) output of ‘hostname’. Failure to adjust this when upgrading from emperor or dumpling may prevent the radosgw daemon from starting.

Upgrading from v0.72 Emperor

  • See notes above.
  • The ‘ceph -s’ or ‘ceph status’ command’s ‘num_in_osds’ field in the JSON and XML output has been changed from a string to an int.
  • The recently added ‘ceph mds set allow_new_snaps’ command’s syntax has changed slightly; it is now ‘ceph mds set allow_new_snaps true’. The ‘unset’ command has been removed; instead, set the value to ‘false’.
  • The syntax for allowing snapshots is now ‘mds set allow_new_snaps <true|false>’ instead of ‘mds <set,unset> allow_new_snaps’.
  • ‘rbd ls’ on a pool which never held rbd images now exits with code 0. It outputs nothing in plain format, or an empty list in non-plain format. This is consistent with the behavior for a pool which used to hold images, but contains none. Scripts relying on this behavior should be updated.
  • The MDS requires a new OSD operation TMAP2OMAP, added in this release. When upgrading, be sure to upgrade and restart the ceph-osd daemons before the ceph-mds daemon. The MDS will refuse to start if any up OSDs do not support the new feature.
  • The ‘ceph mds set_max_mds N’ command is now deprecated in favor of ‘ceph mds set max_mds N’.
  • The ‘osd pool create ...’ syntax has changed for erasure pools.
  • The default CRUSH rules and layouts are now using the ‘bobtail’ tunables and defaults. Upgaded clusters using the old values will now present with a health WARN state. This can be disabled by adding ‘mon warn on legacy crush tunables = false’ to ceph.conf and restarting the monitors. Alternatively, you can switch to the new tunables with ‘ceph osd crush tunables firefly,’ but keep in mind that this will involve moving a significant portion of the data already stored in the cluster and in a large cluster may take several days to complete. We do not recommend adjusting tunables on a production cluster.
  • We now default to the ‘bobtail’ CRUSH tunable values that are first supported by Ceph clients in bobtail (v0.56) and Linux kernel version v3.9. If you plan to access a newly created Ceph cluster with an older kernel client, you should use ‘ceph osd crush tunables legacy’ to switch back to the legacy behavior. Note that making that change will likely result in some data movement in the system, so adjust the setting before populating the new cluster with data.
  • We now set the HASHPSPOOL flag on newly created pools (and new clusters) by default. Support for this flag first appeared in v0.64; v0.67 Dumpling is the first major release that supports it. It is first supported by the Linux kernel version v3.9. If you plan to access a newly created Ceph cluster with an older kernel or clients (e.g, librados, librbd) from a pre-dumpling Ceph release, you should add ‘osd pool default flag hashpspool = false’ to the ‘[global]’ section of your ‘ceph.conf’ prior to creating your monitors (e.g., after ‘ceph-deploy new’ but before ‘ceph-deploy mon create ...’).
  • The configuration option ‘osd pool default crush rule’ is deprecated and replaced with ‘osd pool default crush replicated ruleset’. ‘osd pool default crush rule’ takes precedence for backward compatibility and a deprecation warning is displayed when it is used.
  • As part of fix for #6796, ‘ceph osd pool set <pool> <var> <arg>’ now receives <arg> as an integer instead of a string. This affects how ‘hashpspool’ flag is set/unset: instead of ‘true’ or ‘false’, it now must be ‘0’ or ‘1’.
  • The behavior of the CRUSH ‘indep’ choose mode has been changed. No ceph cluster should have been using this behavior unless someone has manually extracted a crush map, modified a CRUSH rule to replace ‘firstn’ with ‘indep’, recompiled, and reinjected the new map into the cluster. If the ‘indep’ mode is currently in use on a cluster, the rule should be modified to use ‘firstn’ instead, and the administrator should wait until any data movement completes before upgrading.
  • The ‘osd dump’ command now dumps pool snaps as an array instead of an object.

Upgrading from v0.67 Dumpling

  • See notes above.
  • ceph-fuse and radosgw now use the same default values for the admin socket and log file paths that the other daemons (ceph-osd, ceph-mon, etc.) do. If you run these daemons as non-root, you may need to adjust your ceph.conf to disable these options or to adjust the permissions on /var/run/ceph and /var/log/ceph.
  • The MDS now disallows snapshots by default as they are not considered stable. The command ‘ceph mds set allow_snaps’ will enable them.
  • For clusters that were created before v0.44 (pre-argonaut, Spring 2012) and store radosgw data, the auto-upgrade from TMAP to OMAP objects has been disabled. Before upgrading, make sure that any buckets created on pre-argonaut releases have been modified (e.g., by PUTing and then DELETEing an object from each bucket). Any cluster created with argonaut (v0.48) or a later release or not using radosgw never relied on the automatic conversion and is not affected by this change.
  • Any direct users of the ‘tmap’ portion of the librados API should be aware that the automatic tmap -> omap conversion functionality has been removed.
  • Most output that used K or KB (e.g., for kilobyte) now uses a lower-case k to match the official SI convention. Any scripts that parse output and check for an upper-case K will need to be modified.
  • librados::Rados::pool_create_async() and librados::Rados::pool_delete_async() don’t drop a reference to the completion object on error, caller needs to take care of that. This has never really worked correctly and we were leaking an object
  • ‘ceph osd crush set <id> <weight> <loc..>’ no longer adds the osd to the specified location, as that’s a job for ‘ceph osd crush add’. It will however continue to work just the same as long as the osd already exists in the crush map.
  • The OSD now enforces that class write methods cannot both mutate an object and return data. The rbd.assign_bid method, the lone offender, has been removed. This breaks compatibility with pre-bobtail librbd clients by preventing them from creating new images.
  • librados now returns on commit instead of ack for synchronous calls. This is a bit safer in the case where both OSDs and the client crash, and is probably how it should have been acting from the beginning. Users are unlikely to notice but it could result in lower performance in some circumstances. Those who care should switch to using the async interfaces, which let you specify safety semantics precisely.
  • The C++ librados AioComplete::get_version() method was incorrectly returning an int (usually 32-bits). To avoid breaking library compatibility, a get_version64() method is added that returns the full-width value. The old method is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Users of the C++ librados API that make use of the get_version() method should modify their code to avoid getting a value that is truncated from 64 to to 32 bits.

v0.79

This release is intended to serve as a release candidate for firefly, which will hopefully be v0.80. No changes are being made to the code base at this point except those that fix bugs. Please test this release if you intend to make use of the new erasure-coded pools or cache tiers in firefly.

This release fixes a range of bugs found in v0.78 and streamlines the user experience when creating erasure-coded pools. There is also a raft of fixes for the MDS (multi-mds, directory fragmentation, and large directories). The main notable new piece of functionality is a small change to allow radosgw to use an erasure-coded pool for object data.

Upgrading

  • Erasure pools created with v0.78 will no longer function with v0.79. You will need to delete the old pool and create a new one.

  • A bug was fixed in the authentication handshake with big-endian architectures that prevent authentication between big- and little-endian machines in the same cluster. If you have a cluster that consists entirely of big-endian machines, you will need to upgrade all daemons and clients and restart.

  • The ‘ceph.file.layout’ and ‘ceph.dir.layout’ extended attributes are no longer included in the listxattr(2) results to prevent problems with ‘cp -a’ and similar tools.

  • Monitor ‘auth’ read-only commands now expect the user to have ‘rx’ caps. This is the same behavior that was present in dumpling, but in emperor and more recent development releases the ‘r’ cap was sufficient. The affected commands are:

    ceph auth export
    ceph auth get
    ceph auth get-key
    ceph auth print-key
    ceph auth list

Notable Changes

  • ceph-conf: stop creating bogus log files (Josh Durgin, Sage Weil)
  • common: fix authentication on big-endian architectures (Dan Mick)
  • debian: change directory ownership between ceph and ceph-common (Sage Weil)
  • init: fix startup ordering/timeout problem with OSDs (Dmitry Smirnov)

v0.78

This development release includes two key features: erasure coding and cache tiering. A huge amount of code was merged for this release and several additional weeks were spent stabilizing the code base, and it is now in a state where it is ready to be tested by a broader user base.

This is not the firefly release. Firefly will be delayed for at least another sprint so that we can get some operational experience with the new code and do some additional testing before committing to long term support.

Note

Please note that while it is possible to create and test erasure coded pools in this release, the pools will not be usable when you upgrade to v0.79 as the OSDMap encoding will subtlely change. Please do not populate your test pools with important data that can’t be reloaded.

Upgrading

  • Upgrade daemons in the following order:

    1. Monitors
    2. OSDs
    3. MDSs and/or radosgw

    If the ceph-mds daemon is restarted first, it will wait until all OSDs have been upgraded before finishing its startup sequence. If the ceph-mon daemons are not restarted prior to the ceph-osd daemons, they will not correctly register their new capabilities with the cluster and new features may not be usable until they are restarted a second time.

  • Upgrade radosgw daemons together. There is a subtle change in behavior for multipart uploads that prevents a multipart request that was initiated with a new radosgw from being completed by an old radosgw.

  • CephFS recently added support for a new ‘backtrace’ attribute on file data objects that is used for lookup by inode number (i.e., NFS reexport and hard links), and will later be used by fsck repair. This replaces the existing anchor table mechanism that is used for hard link resolution. In order to completely phase that out, any inode that has an outdated backtrace attribute will get updated when the inode itself is modified. This will result in some extra workload after a legacy CephFS file system is upgraded.

  • The per-op return code in librados’ ObjectWriteOperation interface is now filled in.

  • The librados cmpxattr operation now handles xattrs containing null bytes as data rather than null-terminated strings.

  • Compound operations in librados that create and then delete the same object are now explicitly disallowed (they fail with -EINVAL).

  • The default leveldb cache size for the ceph-osd daemon has been increased from 4 MB to 128 MB. This will increase the memory footprint of that process but tends to increase performance of omap (key/value) objects (used for CephFS and the radosgw). If memory in your deployment is tight, you can preserve the old behavio by adding:

    leveldb write buffer size = 0
    leveldb cache size = 0

    to your ceph.conf to get back the (leveldb) defaults.

v0.77

This is the final development release before the Firefly feature freeze. The main items in this release include some additional refactoring work in the OSD IO path (include some locking improvements), per-user quotas for the radosgw, a switch to civetweb from mongoose for the prototype radosgw standalone mode, and a prototype leveldb-based backend for the OSD. The C librados API also got support for atomic write operations (read side transactions will appear in v0.78).

Upgrading

  • The ‘ceph -s’ or ‘ceph status’ command’s ‘num_in_osds’ field in the JSON and XML output has been changed from a string to an int.
  • The recently added ‘ceph mds set allow_new_snaps’ command’s syntax has changed slightly; it is now ‘ceph mds set allow_new_snaps true’. The ‘unset’ command has been removed; instead, set the value to ‘false’.
  • The syntax for allowing snapshots is now ‘mds set allow_new_snaps <true|false>’ instead of ‘mds <set,unset> allow_new_snaps’.

Notable Changes

  • osd: client IO path changes for EC (Samuel Just)
  • common: portability changes to support libc++ (Noah Watkins)

  • rgw: fix read_user_buckets ‘max’ behavior (Yehuda Sadeh)
  • mon: change mds allow_new_snaps syntax to be more consistent (Sage Weil)

v0.76

This release includes another batch of updates for firefly functionality. Most notably, the cache pool infrastructure now support snapshots, the OSD backfill functionality has been generalized to include multiple targets (necessary for the coming erasure pools), and there were performance improvements to the erasure code plugin on capable processors. The MDS now properly utilizes (and seamlessly migrates to) the OSD key/value interface (aka omap) for storing directory objects. There continue to be many other fixes and improvements for usability and code portability across the tree.

Upgrading

  • ‘rbd ls’ on a pool which never held rbd images now exits with code 0. It outputs nothing in plain format, or an empty list in non-plain format. This is consistent with the behavior for a pool which used to hold images, but contains none. Scripts relying on this behavior should be updated.
  • The MDS requires a new OSD operation TMAP2OMAP, added in this release. When upgrading, be sure to upgrade and restart the ceph-osd daemons before the ceph-mds daemon. The MDS will refuse to start if any up OSDs do not support the new feature.
  • The ‘ceph mds set_max_mds N’ command is now deprecated in favor of ‘ceph mds set max_mds N’.

Notable Changes

  • build: misc improvements (Ken Dreyer)
  • ceph-disk: generalize path names, add tests (Loic Dachary)
  • ceph-disk: misc improvements for puppet (Loic Dachary)
  • ceph-disk: several bug fixes (Loic Dachary)

  • specfile: ship libdir/ceph (Key Dreyer)

v0.75

This is a big release, with lots of infrastructure going in for firefly. The big items include a prototype standalone frontend for radosgw (which does not require apache or fastcgi), tracking for read activity on the osds (to inform tiering decisions), preliminary cache pool support (no snapshots yet), and lots of bug fixes and other work across the tree to get ready for the next batch of erasure coding patches.

For comparison, here are the diff stats for the last few versions:

Upgrading

  • The ‘osd pool create ...’ syntax has changed for erasure pools.
  • The default CRUSH rules and layouts are now using the latest and greatest tunables and defaults. Clusters using the old values will now present with a health WARN state. This can be disabled by adding ‘mon warn on legacy crush tunables = false’ to ceph.conf.

v0.74

This release includes a few substantial pieces for Firefly, including a long-overdue switch to 3x replication by default and a switch to the “new” CRUSH tunables by default (supported since bobtail). There is also a fix for a long-standing radosgw bug (stalled GET) that has already been backported to emperor and dumpling.

Upgrading

  • We now default to the ‘bobtail’ CRUSH tunable values that are first supported by Ceph clients in bobtail (v0.56) and Linux kernel version v3.9. If you plan to access a newly created Ceph cluster with an older kernel client, you should use ‘ceph osd crush tunables legacy’ to switch back to the legacy behavior. Note that making that change will likely result in some data movement in the system, so adjust the setting before populating the new cluster with data.
  • We now set the HASHPSPOOL flag on newly created pools (and new clusters) by default. Support for this flag first appeared in v0.64; v0.67 Dumpling is the first major release that supports it. It is first supported by the Linux kernel version v3.9. If you plan to access a newly created Ceph cluster with an older kernel or clients (e.g, librados, librbd) from a pre-dumpling Ceph release, you should add ‘osd pool default flag hashpspool = false’ to the ‘[global]’ section of your ‘ceph.conf’ prior to creating your monitors (e.g., after ‘ceph-deploy new’ but before ‘ceph-deploy mon create ...’).
  • The configuration option ‘osd pool default crush rule’ is deprecated and replaced with ‘osd pool default crush replicated ruleset’. ‘osd pool default crush rule’ takes precedence for backward compatibility and a deprecation warning is displayed when it is used.

Notable Changes

  • buffer: some zero-copy groundwork (Josh Durgin)
  • ceph-disk: avoid fd0 (Loic Dachary)
  • crush: default to bobtail tunables (Sage Weil)
  • crush: many additional tests (Loic Dachary)
  • crush: misc fixes, cleanups (Loic Dachary)
  • crush: new rule steps to adjust retry attempts (Sage Weil)
  • debian: integrate misc fixes from downstream packaging (James Page)
  • doc: big update to install docs (John Wilkins)
  • libcephfs: fix resource leak (Zheng Yan)
  • misc coverity fixes (Xing Lin, Li Wang, Danny Al-Gaaf)
  • misc portability fixes (Noah Watkins, Alan Somers)
  • mon, osd: new ‘erasure’ pool type (still not fully supported)
  • mon: add ‘mon getmap EPOCH’ (Joao Eduardo Luis)
  • mon: collect misc metadata about osd (os, kernel, etc.), new ‘osd metadata’ command (Sage Weil)
  • osd: default to 3x replication
  • osd: do not include backfill targets in acting set (David Zafman)
  • osd: new ‘chassis’ type in default crush hierarchy (Sage Weil)
  • osd: requery unfound on stray notify (#6909) (Samuel Just)
  • osd: some PGBackend infrastructure (Samuel Just)
  • osd: support for new ‘memstore’ (memory-backed) backend (Sage Weil)
  • rgw: fix fastcgi deadlock (do not return data from librados callback) (Yehuda Sadeh)
  • rgw: fix reading bucket policy (#6940)
  • rgw: fix use-after-free when releasing completion handle (Yehuda Sadeh)

v0.73

This release, the first development release after emperor, includes many bug fixes and a few additional pieces of functionality. The first batch of larger changes will be landing in the next version, v0.74.

Upgrading

  • As part of fix for #6796, ‘ceph osd pool set <pool> <var> <arg>’ now receives <arg> as an integer instead of a string. This affects how ‘hashpspool’ flag is set/unset: instead of ‘true’ or ‘false’, it now must be ‘0’ or ‘1’.
  • The behavior of the CRUSH ‘indep’ choose mode has been changed. No ceph cluster should have been using this behavior unless someone has manually extracted a crush map, modified a CRUSH rule to replace ‘firstn’ with ‘indep’, recompiled, and reinjected the new map into the cluster. If the ‘indep’ mode is currently in use on a cluster, the rule should be modified to use ‘firstn’ instead, and the administrator should wait until any data movement completes before upgrading.
  • The ‘osd dump’ command now dumps pool snaps as an array instead of an object.
  • The radosgw init script (sysvinit) how requires that the ‘host = ...’ line in ceph.conf, if present, match the short hostname (the output of ‘hostname -s’), not the fully qualified hostname or the (occasionally non-short) output of ‘hostname’. Failure to adjust this when upgrading from emperor or dumpling may prevent the radosgw daemon from starting.

Notable Changes

  • ceph-crush-location: new hook for setting CRUSH location of osd daemons on start
  • ceph-kvstore-tool: expanded command set and capabilities (Joao Eduardo Luis)
  • ceph.spec: fix build dependency (Loic Dachary)
  • common: fix aligned buffer allocation (Loic Dachary)
  • doc: many many install doc improvements (John Wilkins)
  • mds: fix readdir end check (Zheng Yan)
  • mds: update old-format backtraces opportunistically (Zheng Yan)
  • misc cleanups from coverity (Xing Lin)
  • misc portability fixes (Noah Watkins, Christophe Courtaut, Alan Somers, huanjun)
  • mon: ‘osd dump’ dumps pool snaps as array, not object (Dan Mick)
  • mon: allow debug quorum_{enter,exit} commands via admin socket
  • mon: prevent extreme changes in pool pg_num (Greg Farnum)
  • mon: take ‘osd pool set ...’ value as an int, not string (Joao Eduardo Luis)
  • mon: trim MDSMaps (Joao Eduardo Luis)
  • osd: fix object_info_t encoding bug from emperor (Sam Just)
  • rbd: add ‘rbdmap’ init script for mapping rbd images on book (Adam Twardowski)
  • rgw: add ‘status’ command to sysvinit script (David Moreau Simard)
  • rgw: fix error setting empty owner on ACLs (Yehuda Sadeh)
  • rgw: optionally defer to bucket ACLs instead of object ACLs (Liam Monahan)
  • rgw: support for password (instead of admin token) for keystone authentication (Christophe Courtaut)
  • sysvinit, upstart: prevent both init systems from starting the same daemons (Josh Durgin)

v0.72.3 Emperor (pending release)

Upgrading

  • Monitor ‘auth’ read-only commands now expect the user to have ‘rx’ caps. This is the same behavior that was present in dumpling, but in emperor and more recent development releases the ‘r’ cap was sufficient. Note that this backported security fix will break mon keys that are using the following commands but do not have the ‘x’ bit in the mon capability:

    ceph auth export
    ceph auth get
    ceph auth get-key
    ceph auth print-key
    ceph auth list

v0.72.2 Emperor

This is the second bugfix release for the v0.72.x Emperor series. We have fixed a hang in radosgw, and fixed (again) a problem with monitor CLI compatiblity with mixed version monitors. (In the future this will no longer be a problem.)

Upgrading

  • The JSON schema for the ‘osd pool set ...’ command changed slightly. Please avoid issuing this particular command via the CLI while there is a mix of v0.72.1 and v0.72.2 monitor daemons running.
  • As part of fix for #6796, ‘ceph osd pool set <pool> <var> <arg>’ now receives <arg> as an integer instead of a string. This affects how ‘hashpspool’ flag is set/unset: instead of ‘true’ or ‘false’, it now must be ‘0’ or ‘1’.

Changes

  • mon: ‘osd pool set ...’ syntax change
  • osd: added test for missing on-disk HEAD object
  • osd: fix osd bench block size argument
  • rgw: fix hang on large object GET
  • rgw: fix rare use-after-free
  • rgw: various DR bug fixes
  • rgw: do not return error on empty owner when setting ACL
  • sysvinit, upstart: prevent starting daemons using both init systems

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.72.1 Emperor

Important Note

When you are upgrading from Dumpling to Emperor, do not run any of the “ceph osd pool set” commands while your monitors are running separate versions. Doing so could result in inadvertently changing cluster configuration settings that exhaust compute resources in your OSDs.

Changes

  • osd: fix upgrade bug #6761
  • ceph_filestore_tool: introduced tool to repair errors caused by #6761

This release addresses issue #6761. Upgrading to Emperor can cause reads to begin returning ENFILE (too many open files). v0.72.1 fixes that upgrade issue and adds a tool ceph_filestore_tool to repair osd stores affected by this bug.

To repair a cluster affected by this bug:

  1. Upgrade all osd machines to v0.72.1

  2. Install the ceph-test package on each osd machine to get ceph_filestore_tool

  3. Stop all osd processes

  4. To see all lost objects, run the following on each osd with the osd stopped and the osd data directory mounted:

    ceph_filestore_tool --list-lost-objects=true --filestore-path=<path-to-osd-filestore> --journal-path=<path-to-osd-journal>
  5. To fix all lost objects, run the following on each osd with the osd stopped and the osd data directory mounted:

    ceph_filestore_tool --fix-lost-objects=true --list-lost-objects=true --filestore-path=<path-to-osd-filestore> --journal-path=<path-to-osd-journal>
  6. Once lost objects have been repaired on each osd, you can restart the cluster.

Note, the ceph_filestore_tool performs a scan of all objects on the osd and may take some time.

v0.72 Emperor

This is the fifth major release of Ceph, the fourth since adopting a 3-month development cycle. This release brings several new features, including multi-datacenter replication for the radosgw, improved usability, and lands a lot of incremental performance and internal refactoring work to support upcoming features in Firefly.

Important Note

When you are upgrading from Dumpling to Emperor, do not run any of the “ceph osd pool set” commands while your monitors are running separate versions. Doing so could result in inadvertently changing cluster configuration settings that exhaust compute resources in your OSDs.

Highlights

  • common: improved crc32c performance
  • librados: new example client and class code
  • mds: many bug fixes and stability improvements
  • mon: health warnings when pool pg_num values are not reasonable
  • mon: per-pool performance stats
  • osd, librados: new object copy primitives
  • osd: improved interaction with backend file system to reduce latency
  • osd: much internal refactoring to support ongoing erasure coding and tiering support
  • rgw: bucket quotas
  • rgw: improved CORS support
  • rgw: performance improvements
  • rgw: validate S3 tokens against Keystone

Coincident with core Ceph, the Emperor release also brings:

  • radosgw-agent: support for multi-datacenter replication for disaster recovery
  • tgt: improved support for iSCSI via upstream tgt

Packages for both are available on ceph.com.

Upgrade sequencing

There are no specific upgrade restrictions on the order or sequence of upgrading from 0.67.x Dumpling. However, you cannot run any of the “ceph osd pool set” commands while your monitors are running separate versions. Doing so could result in inadvertently changing cluster configuration settings and exhausting compute resources in your OSDs.

It is also possible to do a rolling upgrade from 0.61.x Cuttlefish, but there are ordering restrictions. (This is the same set of restrictions for 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 v0.71

  • ceph-fuse and radosgw now use the same default values for the admin socket and log file paths that the other daemons (ceph-osd, ceph-mon, etc.) do. If you run these daemons as non-root, you may need to adjust your ceph.conf to disable these options or to adjust the permissions on /var/run/ceph and /var/log/ceph.

Upgrading from v0.67 Dumpling

  • ceph-fuse and radosgw now use the same default values for the admin socket and log file paths that the other daemons (ceph-osd, ceph-mon, etc.) do. If you run these daemons as non-root, you may need to adjust your ceph.conf to disable these options or to adjust the permissions on /var/run/ceph and /var/log/ceph.
  • The MDS now disallows snapshots by default as they are not considered stable. The command ‘ceph mds set allow_snaps’ will enable them.
  • For clusters that were created before v0.44 (pre-argonaut, Spring 2012) and store radosgw data, the auto-upgrade from TMAP to OMAP objects has been disabled. Before upgrading, make sure that any buckets created on pre-argonaut releases have been modified (e.g., by PUTing and then DELETEing an object from each bucket). Any cluster created with argonaut (v0.48) or a later release or not using radosgw never relied on the automatic conversion and is not affected by this change.
  • Any direct users of the ‘tmap’ portion of the librados API should be aware that the automatic tmap -> omap conversion functionality has been removed.
  • Most output that used K or KB (e.g., for kilobyte) now uses a lower-case k to match the official SI convention. Any scripts that parse output and check for an upper-case K will need to be modified.
  • librados::Rados::pool_create_async() and librados::Rados::pool_delete_async() don’t drop a reference to the completion object on error, caller needs to take care of that. This has never really worked correctly and we were leaking an object
  • ‘ceph osd crush set <id> <weight> <loc..>’ no longer adds the osd to the specified location, as that’s a job for ‘ceph osd crush add’. It will however continue to work just the same as long as the osd already exists in the crush map.
  • The OSD now enforces that class write methods cannot both mutate an object and return data. The rbd.assign_bid method, the lone offender, has been removed. This breaks compatibility with pre-bobtail librbd clients by preventing them from creating new images.
  • librados now returns on commit instead of ack for synchronous calls. This is a bit safer in the case where both OSDs and the client crash, and is probably how it should have been acting from the beginning. Users are unlikely to notice but it could result in lower performance in some circumstances. Those who care should switch to using the async interfaces, which let you specify safety semantics precisely.
  • The C++ librados AioComplete::get_version() method was incorrectly returning an int (usually 32-bits). To avoid breaking library compatibility, a get_version64() method is added that returns the full-width value. The old method is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Users of the C++ librados API that make use of the get_version() method should modify their code to avoid getting a value that is truncated from 64 to to 32 bits.

v0.71

This development release includes a significant amount of new code and refactoring, as well as a lot of preliminary functionality that will be needed for erasure coding and tiering support. There are also several significant patch sets improving this with the MDS.

Upgrading

  • The MDS now disallows snapshots by default as they are not considered stable. The command ‘ceph mds set allow_snaps’ will enable them.
  • For clusters that were created before v0.44 (pre-argonaut, Spring 2012) and store radosgw data, the auto-upgrade from TMAP to OMAP objects has been disabled. Before upgrading, make sure that any buckets created on pre-argonaut releases have been modified (e.g., by PUTing and then DELETEing an object from each bucket). Any cluster created with argonaut (v0.48) or a later release or not using radosgw never relied on the automatic conversion and is not affected by this change.
  • Any direct users of the ‘tmap’ portion of the librados API should be aware that the automatic tmap -> omap conversion functionality has been removed.
  • Most output that used K or KB (e.g., for kilobyte) now uses a lower-case k to match the official SI convention. Any scripts that parse output and check for an upper-case K will need to be modified.

Notable Changes

  • build: Makefile refactor (Roald J. van Loon)
  • ceph-disk: fix journal preallocation
  • ceph-fuse: trim deleted inodes from cache (Yan, Zheng)

v0.70

Upgrading

  • librados::Rados::pool_create_async() and librados::Rados::pool_delete_async() don’t drop a reference to the completion object on error, caller needs to take care of that. This has never really worked correctly and we were leaking an object
  • ‘ceph osd crush set <id> <weight> <loc..>’ no longer adds the osd to the specified location, as that’s a job for ‘ceph osd crush add’. It will however continue to work just the same as long as the osd already exists in the crush map.

Notable Changes

  • mon: a few ‘ceph mon add’ races fixed (command is now idempotent) (Joao Luis)
  • crush: fix name caching
  • rgw: fix a few minor memory leaks (Yehuda Sadeh)

  • mds: fix heap profiler commands (Joao Luis)
  • rgw: fix inefficient use of std::list::size() (Yehuda Sadeh)

v0.69

Upgrading

  • The sysvinit /etc/init.d/ceph script will, by default, update the CRUSH location of an OSD when it starts. Previously, if the monitors were not available, this command would hang indefinitely. Now, that step will time out after 10 seconds and the ceph-osd daemon will not be started.
  • Users of the librados C++ API should replace users of get_version() with get_version64() as the old method only returns a 32-bit value for a 64-bit field. The existing 32-bit get_version() method is now deprecated.
  • The OSDs are now more picky that request payload match their declared size. A write operation across N bytes that includes M bytes of data will now be rejected. No known clients do this, but the because the server-side behavior has changed it is possible that an application misusing the interface may now get errors.
  • The OSD now enforces that class write methods cannot both mutate an object and return data. The rbd.assign_bid method, the lone offender, has been removed. This breaks compatibility with pre-bobtail librbd clients by preventing them from creating new images.
  • librados now returns on commit instead of ack for synchronous calls. This is a bit safer in the case where both OSDs and the client crash, and is probably how it should have been acting from the beginning. Users are unlikely to notice but it could result in lower performance in some circumstances. Those who care should switch to using the async interfaces, which let you specify safety semantics precisely.
  • The C++ librados AioComplete::get_version() method was incorrectly returning an int (usually 32-bits). To avoid breaking library compatibility, a get_version64() method is added that returns the full-width value. The old method is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Users of the C++ librados API that make use of the get_version() method should modify their code to avoid getting a value that is truncated from 64 to to 32 bits.

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)

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.

    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.

  • 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.

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

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)

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: 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)

  • 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.

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”

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 curenty rely on these functions zapping data without confirmation need to be adjusted accordingly.

  • rpm/deb: do not remove /var/lib/ceph on purge (v0.59 was the only release to do so)

v0.59

Upgrading

  • The monitor is using a completely new storage strategy and intra-cluster protocol. This means that v0.59 and pre-v0.59 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.

Notable Changes

  • mon: rearchitected to utilize single instance of paxos and a key/value store (Joao Luis)
  • mon: new ‘ceph df [detail]’ command
  • osd: support for improved hashing of PGs across OSDs via HASHPSPOOL pool flag and feature

  • msgr: optionally tune TCP buffer size to avoid throughput collapse (Jim Schutt)
  • consume less memory for logging by default
  • always use system leveldb (Gary Lowell)

v0.58

Upgrading

  • 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.

Notable Changes

  • librbd: fixed some locking issues with flatten (Josh Durgin)
  • rbd: udevadm settle on map/unmap to avoid various races (Dan Mick)
  • osd: move pg info, log into leveldb (== better performance) (David Zafman)

  • osd: verify snap collections on startup (Sam Just)
  • ceph-disk-prepare/activate: support for dm-crypt (Alexandre Marangone)

  • msgr: fixed race in connection reset
  • msgr: fix comparison of IPv6 addresses (fixes monitor bringup via ceph-deploy, chef)
  • radosgw: fix object copy onto self (Yehuda Sadeh)
  • radosgw: ACL grants in headers (Caleb Miles)
  • radosgw: ability to listen to fastcgi via a port (Guilhem Lettron)

  • crush: ability to create, remove rules via CLI
  • many many cleanups (Danny Al-Gaaf)
  • buffer unit testing (Loic Dachary)
  • fixed log rotation (Gary Lowell)

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 curenty 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

  • 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

  • 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)

v0.56.7 “bobtail”

Upgrading

  • There is a fix in the syntax for the output of ‘ceph osd tree –format=json’.
  • The MDS disk format has changed from prior releases and from v0.57. In particular, upgrades to v0.56.4 are safe, but you cannot move from v0.56.4 to v0.57 if you are using the MDS for CephFS; you must upgrade directly to v0.58 (or later) instead.

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.56.3 “bobtail”

This release has several bug fixes surrounding OSD stability. Most significantly, an issue with OSDs being unresponsive shortly after startup (and occasionally crashing due to an internal heartbeat check) is resolved. Please upgrade.

Upgrading

  • A bug was fixed in which the OSDMap epoch for PGs without any IO requests was not recorded. If there are pools in the cluster that are completely idle (for example, the data and metadata pools normally used by CephFS), and a large number of OSDMap epochs have elapsed since the ceph-osd daemon was last restarted, those maps will get reprocessed when the daemon restarts. This process can take a while if there are a lot of maps. A workaround is to ‘touch’ any idle pools with IO prior to restarting the daemons after packages are upgraded:

    rados bench 10 write -t 1 -b 4096 -p {POOLNAME}

    This will typically generate enough IO to touch every PG in the pool without generating significant cluster load, and also cleans up any temporary objects it creates.

Notable changes

  • osd: flush peering work queue prior to start
  • osd: persist osdmap epoch for idle PGs
  • osd: fix and simplify connection handling for heartbeats
  • osd: avoid crash on invalid admin command
  • mon: fix rare races with monitor elections and commands
  • mon: enforce that OSD reweights be between 0 and 1 (NOTE: not CRUSH weights)
  • mon: approximate client, recovery bandwidth logging
  • radosgw: fixed some XML formatting to conform to Swift API inconsistency
  • radosgw: fix usage accounting bug; add repair tool
  • radosgw: make fallback URI configurable (necessary on some web servers)
  • librbd: fix handling for interrupted ‘unprotect’ operations
  • mds, ceph-fuse: allow file and directory layouts to be modified via virtual xattrs

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.56.2 “bobtail”

This release has a wide range of bug fixes, stability improvements, and some performance improvements. Please upgrade.

Upgrading

  • The meaning of the ‘osd scrub min interval’ and ‘osd scrub max interval’ has changed slightly. The min interval used to be meaningless, while the max interval would only trigger a scrub if the load was sufficiently low. Now, the min interval option works the way the old max interval did (it will trigger a scrub after this amount of time if the load is low), while the max interval will force a scrub regardless of load. The default options have been adjusted accordingly. If you have customized these in ceph.conf, please review their values when upgrading.
  • CRUSH maps that are generated by default when calling ceph-mon --mkfs directly now distribute replicas across hosts instead of across OSDs. Any provisioning tools that are being used by Ceph may be affected, although probably for the better, as distributing across hosts is a much more commonly sought behavior. If you use mkcephfs to create the cluster, the default CRUSH rule is still inferred by the number of hosts and/or racks in the initial ceph.conf.

Notable changes

  • osd: snapshot trimming fixes
  • osd: scrub snapshot metadata
  • osd: fix osdmap trimming
  • osd: misc peering fixes
  • osd: stop heartbeating with peers if internal threads are stuck/hung
  • osd: PG removal is friendlier to other workloads
  • osd: fix recovery start delay (was causing very slow recovery)
  • osd: fix scheduling of explicitly requested scrubs
  • osd: fix scrub interval config options
  • osd: improve recovery vs client io tuning
  • osd: improve ‘slow request’ warning detail for better diagnosis
  • osd: default CRUSH map now distributes across hosts, not OSDs
  • osd: fix crash on 32-bit hosts triggered by librbd clients
  • librbd: fix error handling when talking to older OSDs
  • mon: fix a few rare crashes
  • ceph command: ability to easily adjust CRUSH tunables
  • radosgw: object copy does not copy source ACLs
  • rados command: fix omap command usage
  • sysvinit script: set ulimit -n properly on remote hosts
  • msgr: fix narrow race with message queuing
  • fixed compilation on some old distros (e.g., RHEL 5.x)

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.56.1 “bobtail”

This release has two critical fixes. Please upgrade.

Upgrading

  • There is a protocol compatibility problem between v0.56 and any other version that is now fixed. If your radosgw or RBD clients are running v0.56, they will need to be upgraded too. If they are running a version prior to v0.56, they can be left as is.

Notable changes

  • osd: fix commit sequence for XFS, ext4 (or any other non-btrfs) to prevent data loss on power cycle or kernel panic
  • osd: fix compatibility for CALL operation
  • osd: process old osdmaps prior to joining cluster (fixes slow startup)
  • osd: fix a couple of recovery-related crashes
  • osd: fix large io requests when journal is in (non-default) aio mode
  • log: fix possible deadlock in logging code

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.56 “bobtail”

Bobtail is the second stable release of Ceph, named in honor of the Bobtail Squid: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobtail_squid.

Key features since v0.48 “argonaut”

  • Object Storage Daemon (OSD): improved threading, small-io performance, and performance during recovery
  • Object Storage Daemon (OSD): regular “deep” scrubbing of all stored data to detect latent disk errors
  • RADOS Block Device (RBD): support for copy-on-write clones of images.
  • RADOS Block Device (RBD): better client-side caching.
  • RADOS Block Device (RBD): advisory image locking
  • Rados Gateway (RGW): support for efficient usage logging/scraping (for billing purposes)
  • Rados Gateway (RGW): expanded S3 and Swift API coverage (e.g., POST, multi-object delete)
  • Rados Gateway (RGW): improved striping for large objects
  • Rados Gateway (RGW): OpenStack Keystone integration
  • RPM packages for Fedora, RHEL/CentOS, OpenSUSE, and SLES
  • mkcephfs: support for automatically formatting and mounting XFS and ext4 (in addition to btrfs)

Upgrading

Please refer to the document Upgrading from Argonaut to Bobtail for details.

  • Cephx authentication is now enabled by default (since v0.55). Upgrading a cluster without adjusting the Ceph configuration will likely prevent the system from starting up on its own. We recommend first modifying the configuration to indicate that authentication is disabled, and only then upgrading to the latest version.:

    auth client required = none
    auth service required = none
    auth cluster required = none
  • Ceph daemons can be upgraded one-by-one while the cluster is online and in service.

  • The ceph-osd daemons must be upgraded and restarted before any radosgw daemons are restarted, as they depend on some new ceph-osd functionality. (The ceph-mon, ceph-osd, and ceph-mds daemons can be upgraded and restarted in any order.)

  • Once each individual daemon has been upgraded and restarted, it cannot be downgraded.

  • The cluster of ceph-mon daemons will migrate to a new internal on-wire protocol once all daemons in the quorum have been upgraded. Upgrading only a majority of the nodes (e.g., two out of three) may expose the cluster to a situation where a single additional failure may compromise availability (because the non-upgraded daemon cannot participate in the new protocol). We recommend not waiting for an extended period of time between ceph-mon upgrades.

  • The ops log and usage log for radosgw are now off by default. If you need these logs (e.g., for billing purposes), you must enable them explicitly. For logging of all operations to objects in the .log pool (see radosgw-admin log ...):

    rgw enable ops log = true

    For usage logging of aggregated bandwidth usage (see radosgw-admin usage ...):

    rgw enable usage log = true
  • You should not create or use “format 2” RBD images until after all ceph-osd daemons have been upgraded. Note that “format 1” is still the default. You can use the new ceph osd ls and ceph tell osd.N version commands to doublecheck your cluster. ceph osd ls will give a list of all OSD IDs that are part of the cluster, and you can use that to write a simple shell loop to display all the OSD version strings:

    for i in $(ceph osd ls); do
        ceph tell osd.${i} version
    done

Compatibility changes

  • The ‘ceph osd create [<uuid>]’ command now rejects an argument that is not a UUID. (Previously it would take take an optional integer OSD id.) This correct syntax has been ‘ceph osd create [<uuid>]’ since v0.47, but the older calling convention was being silently ignored.

  • The CRUSH map root nodes now have type root instead of type pool. This avoids confusion with RADOS pools, which are not directly related. Any scripts or tools that use the ceph osd crush ... commands may need to be adjusted accordingly.

  • The ceph osd pool create <poolname> <pgnum> command now requires the pgnum argument. Previously this was optional, and would default to 8, which was almost never a good number.

  • Degraded mode (when there fewer than the desired number of replicas) is now more configurable on a per-pool basis, with the min_size parameter. By default, with min_size 0, this allows I/O to objects with N - floor(N/2) replicas, where N is the total number of expected copies. Argonaut behavior was equivalent to having min_size = 1, so I/O would always be possible if any completely up to date copy remained. min_size = 1 could result in lower overall availability in certain cases, such as flapping network partitions.

  • The sysvinit start/stop script now defaults to adjusting the max open files ulimit to 16384. On most systems the default is 1024, so this is an increase and won’t break anything. If some system has a higher initial value, however, this change will lower the limit. The value can be adjusted explicitly by adding an entry to the ceph.conf file in the appropriate section. For example:

    [global]
            max open files = 32768
  • ‘rbd lock list’ and ‘rbd showmapped’ no longer use tabs as separators in their output.

  • There is configurable limit on the number of PGs when creating a new pool, to prevent a user from accidentally specifying a ridiculous number for pg_num. It can be adjusted via the ‘mon max pool pg num’ option on the monitor, and defaults to 65536 (the current max supported by the Linux kernel client).

  • The osd capabilities associated with a rados user have changed syntax since 0.48 argonaut. The new format is mostly backwards compatible, but there are two backwards-incompatible changes:

    • specifying a list of pools in one grant, i.e. ‘allow r pool=foo,bar’ is now done in separate grants, i.e. ‘allow r pool=foo, allow r pool=bar’.
    • restricting pool access by pool owner (‘allow r uid=foo’) is removed. This feature was not very useful and unused in practice.

    The new format is documented in the ceph-authtool man page.

  • ‘rbd cp’ and ‘rbd rename’ use rbd as the default destination pool, regardless of what pool the source image is in. Previously they would default to the same pool as the source image.

  • ‘rbd export’ no longer prints a message for each object written. It just reports percent complete like other long-lasting operations.

  • ‘ceph osd tree’ now uses 4 decimal places for weight so output is nicer for humans

  • Several monitor operations are now idempotent:

    • ceph osd pool create
    • ceph osd pool delete
    • ceph osd pool mksnap
    • ceph osd rm
    • ceph pg <pgid> revert

Upgrading

  • The osd capabilities associated with a rados user have changed syntax since 0.48 argonaut. The new format is mostly backwards compatible, but there are two backwards-incompatible changes:

    • specifying a list of pools in one grant, i.e. ‘allow r pool=foo,bar’ is now done in separate grants, i.e. ‘allow r pool=foo, allow r pool=bar’.
    • restricting pool access by pool owner (‘allow r uid=foo’) is removed. This feature was not very useful and unused in practice.

    The new format is documented in the ceph-authtool man page.

  • Bug fixes to the new osd capability format parsing properly validate the allowed operations. If an existing rados user gets permissions errors after upgrading, its capabilities were probably misconfigured. See the ceph-authtool man page for details on osd capabilities.

  • ‘rbd lock list’ and ‘rbd showmapped’ no longer use tabs as separators in their output.

v0.48.2 “argonaut”

Upgrading

  • The default search path for keyring files now includes /etc/ceph/ceph.$name.keyring. If such files are present on your cluster, be aware that by default they may now be used.
  • There are several changes to the upstart init files. These have not been previously documented or recommended. Any existing users should review the changes before upgrading.
  • The ceph-disk-prepare and ceph-disk-active scripts have been updated significantly. These have not been previously documented or recommended. Any existing users should review the changes before upgrading.

Notable changes

  • mkcephfs: fix keyring generation for mds, osd when default paths are used
  • radosgw: fix bug causing occasional corruption of per-bucket stats
  • radosgw: workaround to avoid previously corrupted stats from going negative
  • radosgw: fix bug in usage stats reporting on busy buckets
  • radosgw: fix Content-Range: header for objects bigger than 2 GB.
  • rbd: avoid leaving watch acting when command line tool errors out (avoids 30s delay on subsequent operations)

  • ceph-disk-activate: misc fixes, improvements
  • ceph-disk-prepare: partition and format osd disks automatically
  • upstart: start everyone on a reboot
  • upstart: always update the osd crush location on start if specified in the config
  • config: add /etc/ceph/ceph.$name.keyring to default keyring search path
  • ceph.spec: don’t package crush headers

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.48.1 “argonaut”

Upgrading

  • The radosgw usage trim function was effectively broken in v0.48. Earlier it would remove more usage data than what was requested. This is fixed in v0.48.1, but the fix is incompatible. The v0.48 radosgw-admin tool cannot be used to initiate the trimming; please use the v0.48.1 version.
  • v0.48.1 now explicitly indicates support for the CRUSH_TUNABLES feature. No other version of Ceph requires this, yet, but future versions will when the tunables are adjusted from their historical defaults.
  • There are no other compatibility changes between v0.48.1 and v0.48.

Notable changes

  • mkcephfs: use default ‘keyring’, ‘osd data’, ‘osd journal’ paths when not specified in conf
  • msgr: various fixes to socket error handling
  • osd: reduce scrub overhead
  • osd: misc peering fixes (past_interval sharing, pgs stuck in ‘peering’ states)
  • osd: fail on EIO in read path (do not silently ignore read errors from failing disks)
  • osd: avoid internal heartbeat errors by breaking some large transactions into pieces
  • osd: fix osdmap catch-up during startup (catch up and then add daemon to osdmap)
  • osd: fix spurious ‘misdirected op’ messages
  • osd: report scrub status via ‘pg ... query’
  • rbd: fix race when watch registrations are resent
  • rbd: fix rbd image id assignment scheme (new image data objects have slightly different names)
  • rbd: fix perf stats for cache hit rate
  • rbd tool: fix off-by-one in key name (crash when empty key specified)
  • rbd: more robust udev rules
  • rados tool: copy object, pool commands
  • radosgw: fix in usage stats trimming
  • radosgw: misc API compatibility fixes (date strings, ETag quoting, swift headers, etc.)
  • ceph-fuse: fix locking in read/write paths
  • mon: fix rare race corrupting on-disk data
  • config: fix admin socket ‘config set’ command
  • log: fix in-memory log event gathering
  • debian: remove crush headers, include librados-config
  • rpm: add ceph-disk-{activate, prepare}

For more detailed information, see the complete changelog.

v0.48 “argonaut”

Upgrading

  • This release includes a disk format upgrade. Each ceph-osd daemon, upon startup, will migrate its locally stored data to the new format. This process can take a while (for large object counts, even hours), especially on non-btrfs file systems.

  • To keep the cluster available while the upgrade is in progress, we recommend you upgrade a storage node or rack at a time, and wait for the cluster to recover each time. To prevent the cluster from moving data around in response to the OSD daemons being down for minutes or hours, you may want to:

    ceph osd set noout

    This will prevent the cluster from marking down OSDs as “out” and re-replicating the data elsewhere. If you do this, be sure to clear the flag when the upgrade is complete:

    ceph osd unset noout
  • There is a encoding format change internal to the monitor cluster. The monitor daemons are careful to switch to the new format only when all members of the quorum support it. However, that means that a partial quorum with new code may move to the new format, and a recovering monitor running old code will be unable to join (it will crash). If this occurs, simply upgrading the remaining monitor will resolve the problem.

  • The ceph tool’s -s and -w commands from previous versions are incompatible with this version. Upgrade your client tools at the same time you upgrade the monitors if you rely on those commands.

  • It is not possible to downgrade from v0.48 to a previous version.

Notable changes

  • osd: stability improvements
  • osd: capability model simplification
  • osd: simpler/safer –mkfs (no longer removes all files; safe to re-run on active osd)
  • osd: potentially buggy FIEMAP behavior disabled by default
  • rbd: caching improvements
  • rbd: improved instrumentation
  • rbd: bug fixes
  • radosgw: new, scalable usage logging infrastructure
  • radosgw: per-user bucket limits
  • mon: streamlined process for setting up authentication keys
  • mon: stability improvements
  • mon: log message throttling
  • doc: improved documentation (ceph, rbd, radosgw, chef, etc.)
  • config: new default locations for daemon keyrings
  • config: arbitrary variable substitutions
  • improved ‘admin socket’ daemon admin interface (ceph –admin-daemon ...)
  • chef: support for multiple monitor clusters
  • upstart: basic support for monitors, mds, radosgw; osd support still a work in progress.

The new default keyring locations mean that when enabling authentication (auth supported = cephx), keyring locations do not need to be specified if the keyring file is located inside the daemon’s data directory (/var/lib/ceph/$type/ceph-$id by default).

There is also a lot of librbd code in this release that is laying the groundwork for the upcoming layering functionality, but is not actually used. Likewise, the upstart support is still incomplete and not recommended; we will backport that functionality later if it turns out to be non-disruptive.
