I am proud to announce the release of SDFS 3.10 with numerous bug fixes and feature updates.

SDFS Version 3.10 is a year in the making and includes various bug fixes to issues asked in this forum. In addition it includes a backlog feature that allows uploads to cloud storage to complete in the background after data is staged to the local sdfs cache. To enable this feature add --backlog-size to the mkfs.sdfs command with the size of the backlog that you would like to keep locally. There must be enough space on the local volume to keep the backlog while it is uploading. Setting the backlog-size to -1 makes it unbounded while setting it to 0 disables it.

e.g.

mkfs.sdfs --volume-name=pool0 --volume-capacity=100TB --backlog-size=1TB  --aws-enabled true --cloud-access-key <access-key> --cloud-secret-key <secret-key> --cloud-bucket-name <unique bucket name>

What is the correct way to upgrade an existing volume (v 3.7.8) to new 3.10.8?  Just updating the binaries through RPM and trying to mount volume with old configuration produces the following output:

<JAVA_HOME>/lib/ext exists, extensions mechanism no longer supported; Use -classpath instead.
.Cannot create Java VM
Service exit with a return value of 1

This is the version of java running on the server:  java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.242.b08-0

Scott, did you ever get this fixed?  I have the same problem with the JAVA error.

Sharing my fix:

rmdir /usr/share/sdfs/bin/jre/lib/ext

Thank You.  I will try it out with the new version.  I had gone back to 3.7.8 since I never got a response.

Well it got rid of the error, but the actual volume is SUPER SLOW.  The volume mounts and I am able to see files and such, but just creating (touch'ing) a file takes like 5 seconds.  I was using the SDFS volume for backups, but it is not really working even though the volume did mount.  Maybe I will try to recreate the volume and start from scratch.  Since I first started using SDFS, my cloud storage provider now natively supports AWS APIs so it is not really important that SDFS work in my environment.

Let me know if a) dropping back down to 3.7.8 helps or b) recreating the volume helps. It would be interesting to know.

Thanks for feeding back.

When creating new sdfs volume from scratch this is what is sent to standard out -- filesystem does mount.

I don't have any official numbers on speed performance, but it still feels laggy after recreating SDFS volume from scratch and using the newly created XML file (which produces the Warning messages posted earlier).  Plus, it seems to bring the computer to a crawl when it is actively processing IO activity.

My backup states that 1.18GB of data was written.  On the backblaze backend it says 621MB is currently stored for the same backup.  The local cache on disk was 2.9GB when the volume was mounted and is now 1.8GB when the volume is not mounted.  That seems like quite a bit of overhead for the local cache.
