+
 
+
Note that the optional, off-site dinners on Sunday and Tuesday are at your own expense.
+
 
+
== Location ==
+
The event will be in the [http://www.delphix.com/company/about-delphix/ Delphix office] in San Francisco:
+
 
+
[https://www.google.com/maps/preview#!q=604+Mission+St.+Suite+400%2C+San+Francisco%2C+CA+94105&data=!1m4!1m3!1d26473!2d-122.4224157!3d37.7867658!4m12!2m11!1m10!1s0x80858062b5adcc23%3A0xd7584093492239e6!3m8!1m3!1d12612!2d-122.3926051!3d37.7913156!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1 604 Mission Street, 4th floor, San Francisco, CA 94105]
+
 
+
Use the keypad to call Delphix and you will be buzzed in.  Google maps has pretty good [http://goo.gl/QyUHUj directions].  The easiest way to reach the Delphix SF office is by public transportation.  Transportation options, easiest listed first:
+
* BART to the Montgomery St. Station + 3 minute walk
+
* Caltrain to the 4th & King station + 25 minutes walk
+
* Caltrain to the 4th & King station + bus (routes 10, 30, or 45)
+
* drive + park in a lot (costs about $25/day e.g. 41 Tehama Street, 509 Howard Street, or 55 Hawthorne Street)
+
 
+
== Discussion Topics ==
+
'''Note: If you are in the room, you are potentially a speaker.''' This will be done in unconference style, so every attendee should come prepared to present or otherwise lead a discussion or session of up to 45 minutes.  The most important things to discuss in this setting are:
+
 
+
# Contentious topics that we need to get widespread agreement on
+
# Reports of work in progress that need input from others
+
 
+
Topics that have been proposed:
+
* OpenZFS code repository (Matt)
+
** what code changes are needed to make this a success
+
** process & procedure (code review, testing, committers)
+
* Performance on full or fragmented pools (George, Ned, Alfred)
+
** block allocator improvements
+
* Portable implementation of FMA functionality for Linux & FreeBSD (e.g. for hot spare activation) (Brian)
+
* OpenZFS community organization (Karyn, Jordan, Matt)
+
* Storage tiering (Boris)
+
* How to investigate ZFS performance problems (Adam)
+
* Test suite (John K)
+
* ZFS Channel Programs (Chris, Max G, Matt)
+
* how to examine the ZFS on-disk format with MDB (Max B)
+
* Interactions with virtual memory subsystem (Brian, Jorgen)
+
** dealing with swap on zfs
+
** how the VM system handles large memory allocations
+
* Scalability on large systems, known bottlenecks (Kirill)
+
* How to educate new ZFS developers (Max G)
+
* Disk management - identification, drive spin down/up (John L)
+
* Resumable send/recv (Boris, Max G, Chris)
+
 
+
== Hackathon ==
+
The goals of the hackathon are:
+
* to get people working with ZFS engineers from outside their normal circles
+
* to start work on some of the [[projects]] we'd like to accomplish
+
Therefore, we should plan to work in small teams of 2-3 engineers.  The team members could be pair-programming, splitting up the work into discrete tasks for each person, or advising / implementing.
+
 
+
=== Hackathon ideas ===
+
''Add your idea and your name below.  Be prepared to explain your idea at the beginning of the hackathon and enlist/entice others to help with it.''
+
* Userland ioctls: support for send/recv (fd operations over the wire)  [[User:mahrens]]
+
* larger (1MB) blocksize: shouldn't be too hard if we ignore performance impact [[User:mahrens]]
+
* dedicated kmem_cache for dedup table entries
+
* stdin / stdout buffer to improve performance of zfs send and receive
+
* ZFS mechanism to override devices' reported sector size (512 vs 4k) (alex @ delphix)
+
* feature flags enhancements for send streams [[User:csiden]]
+
* set owner of all files within a filesystem with a ZFS property [[User:csiden]]
+
* dynamic taskqs for ZIO [[User:ahl]]
+
* towards Oracle Solaris ZFS compatibility [[User:ahl]]
+
* RAIDzN -- full, arbitrary RAID-7 [[User:ahl]]
+
* Testrunner suite running on other platforms (John Kennedy)
+
** or at least identify what is preventing it from running
+
 
+
== Registration ==
+
We are expecting everyone will be there to contribute/participate.
+
 
+
'''The sign up deadline has passed'''.  A few spots are available for late registration.  Mail [mailto:admin@open-zfs.org admin@open-zfs.org] if you would like to attend.

OpenZFS Dev Summit 2020

Planning is underway for the eighth annual OpenZFS Developer Summit. The event will be Sept 29-30 (Tue-Wed) at Delphix HQ in Redwood City, CA.

The event will be held outside of San Francisco at Delphix HQ (Redwood City, CA) in order to allow for the financial flexibility to transition to an online-only event if COVID-19 is still a significant concern as we get close to the event. Luckily Delphix HQ has access to a theater, event space, and a place to hold the hackathon.
