Another month, and v0.23 is out. The main milestone here is that clustered MDS is pretty stable. Stable enough that, if you’re interested and willing, we’d like you to try it and let us know what problems you have. Notably, clustered recovery is not yet well tested (that’s v0.24), so don’t do this unless you’re feeling adventurous. Directory fragmentation (splitting and merging) is also working, although still off by default. If you’d like to try that too, add ‘mds bal frag = true’ to your [mds] section.
Other notable changes this time around:
The general focus for v0.24 will be continuing OSD stability and clustered MDS recovery.
