v0.67.7 Dumpling released

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.

The v0.67.7 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.

UPGRADING

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

  • librbd: revert caching behavior change in v0.67.6
  • osd: fix problem reading xattrs due to incomplete backport in v0.67.6
