I had an itch to scratch, and I wanted to get a bit more familiar with Openshift. I had used it in the past, but it was time to have another go. The app and the code are now available. … Continue reading →
I just patched puppet-gluster and puppet-ipa to bring their infrastructure up to date with the current state of affairs… What’s new? Better README’s Rake syntax checking (fewer oopsies) CI (testing) with travis on git push (automatic testing for everyone) Use … Continue reading →
What’s that bug worth? One of the values of open source and open development is the impact of Community involvement. That involvement takes many forms, code development, innovation and evangelism, guidance for new users and solutions and identifying bugs. Finding and fixing problems in existing code is incredibly valuable in building production ready systems. And […]
The first beta for GlusterFS 3.5.3 is now available for download.Packages for different distributions will land on the download server over the next few days. When packages become available, the package maintainers will send a notification to the glust…
The Ada Initiative is an organization dedicated to addressing gender diversity head-on, with a specific focus on open source and open data communities. Their mission is critical, and their work is much-needed by our community.
In a blog post this week, Sage Weil, principal architect of the Ceph project at Red Hat, has agreed to match $8,192 of Ada Initiative contributions dollar-for-dollar during their fundraiser. In his post, Sage writes, “As Inktank and as DreamHost we were proud to be early supporters of the Ada Initiative. Today, I am proud to continue that support with a personal challenge to the open source storage community.”
His challenge applies to the larger open source storage world, including the Ceph, Gluster, Swift, and Linux storage and file systems communities, and goes until Wednesday, October 8th, when the Ada Initiative’s fundraising drive ends.
Dave McAllister, Gluster and Big Data Community Manager at Red Hat, followed up in a blog post on the Gluster site. “With GlusterFS as a significant part of the open storage communities, I’d like to see us also work to meet this challenge and to extend our own diversity to all,” Dave writes.
Diversity is important to communities. Diversity adds new ideas, new concepts, innovative approaches and unique values. Open source thrives on those same things, and open source communities need to recognize and strive to increase their own diversity. Today, I’d like to share “A Challenge to the Open Storage Community” from Sage Weil. Sage is talking specifically […]
Without further ado…
Never heard of it.
Yeah, I hear all the hipsters yammering about it.
I checked out the docs and examples once.
I used it for a side project.
We’re using it for some new projects at work.
We’re using it in production.

Today Munin was complaining that a partition is nearly full on one of my servers. Looking at the disk usage graph it kinda seems like a slow loris DOS attack… Sure enough, something has gone and filled up the /var/log partition: $ df -h /var/log/ Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/vg_root-log 9.9G 9.0G […]
If you’re a reader of my code or of this blog, it’s no secret that I hack on a lot of puppet and vagrant. Recently I’ve fooled around with a bit of docker, too. I realized that the vagrant, environments … Continue reading →
