  Description     : MooseFS is a fault tolerant, network distributed file system.

MooseFS is a fault tolerant, network distributed file system. 
It spreads data over several physical servers which are visible to the user as one resource. 
For standard file operations MooseFS acts as other Unix-alike file systems:

    * A hierarchical structure (directory tree)
    * Stores POSIX file attributes (permissions, last access and modification times)
    * Supports special files (block and character devices, pipes and sockets)
    * Symbolic links (file names pointing to target files, not necessarily on MooseFS), 
      and hard links (different names of files which refer to the same data on MooseFS)
    * Access to the file system can be limited based on IP address and/or password

Distinctive features of MooseFS are:

    * High reliability (several copies of the data can be stored across separate computers)
    * Capacity is dynamically expandable by attaching new computers/disks
    * Deleted files are retained for a configurable period of time (a file system level "trash bin")
    * Coherent snapshots of files, even while the file is being written/accessed

Any update on this?  I just downloaded the 1.6.20-2.tar.gz from
upstream, and it almost works.

* $(MAKE) is commented out in debian/rules.
* All the upstream example config files install as /etc/$foo.dist;
they then need to be renamed for them to work.  Since they are
registered with dpkg as $foo.dist, this is sub-optimal.
* Upstream example configs want to run as nobody, but the init scripts
try to configure the permssions as mfs:mfs.

I haven't gotten to much further than that, 'cuz my testing cluster
has 1 32-bit node, and 3 64-bit nodes, and I haven't yet compiled a
64-bit version.

I'm going to attempt to get this working, and will post further
updates here.

Hi,

No package of expected?

This is a very interesting file system and running in production.

I've got it packaged, and uploaded to the local repo here at work.

I've moved the config files from /etc/ to /etc/mfs, kinda like how
upstream has on it's TODO list.

I just haven't had time to send my fixes anywhere.  I still have my
key in debian, but I haven't actually uploaded anything in a *long* time.

The *biggest* issue is that you do *not* want your master to go away.
 We've had 16 power outages today in 3.5 hours, and the test rig(which
doesn't have a hot-failover for master, nor even a ups) has gotten
rather upset that mfs-master doesn't auto-start, and you have to run
mfsmetarestore -a.

Good to hear :-)
BTW, did you package the last version (1.6.24)?

Well, we could make a script to auto-start it, but I think the Right
Things™ is to manually run
'mfsmetarestore -a' in order to possibly catch any errors/warnings
during the fixing operation.

Vincent

1.6.20-~3 is what I have uploaded locally.  I'm using git as well, but I 
need to split/rebase my work into separate chunks before I send it 
anywhere.  I can certainly use a newer upstream if needed.

Sure.  However, one thing that irks me is all the clients fail to mount 
the master if it isn't available at bootup, so then I have to go to each 
one and kick it.

It'd be nice if the client kept retrying the master.  The chunkservers do.

Hi!

It's quite easy to create debian packages from MooseFS source, since
there is already a working debian tree - apparently maintained by Jakub
Bogusz <contact@moosefs.com>

noowner 619841
tag 619841 - pending
thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of moosefs back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting moosefs, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 619841 ITP: moosefs -- MooseFS is a fault tolerant, network
 owner 619841 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <619841@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
