    Release 0.8.0

    vitalif released this 7 months ago | 0 commits to master since this release

    • Implement automatic OSD activation via udev and simple on-disk superblock storage
    • Add a new vitastor-disk tool and merge all disk-related functionality there.
      Now it can prepare new OSD disks, upgrade plain old systemd units to the new scheme,
      resize OSD data area, manage OSD services by disk paths, manage superblocks,
      automatically check and disable disk cache, dump and write back journal and metadata.
    • Add a documentation section about vitastor-disk (read it if you want details!)
    • Install systemd services during package installation instead of the older method
      of manually creating them via separate shell scripts
    • Add a new make-etcd script that reuses /etc/vitastor/vitastor.conf to configure etcd
    • Allow to configure block_size, bitmap_granularity and immediate_commit per-pool
    • Fix "fatal error: tried to overwrite non-zero metadata entry" which was possible
      in some cases after unclean OSD shutdown (caused by old metadata entries not being zeroed)
