Google maps has pretty good [ 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 ==== Proposed topics ====* 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) ====Topics that were discussed====* Platform Panel (w/ representatives from illumos, FreeBSD, Linux, and OSX)* Platform-independent code repository (Matt Ahrens)* Storage tiering (Boris Protopopov)* Vendor Panel (all represented companies sharing their work)* Community Developer Summit 2013 planning (Karyn Ritter)* Channel programs (Chris Siden & Max Grossman)* Test coverage (John Kennedy)* Performance investigations (Adam Leventhal)* Performance on full/fragmented pools (George Wilson)* Scalability (Kirill Davydychev)* Virtual memory interactions (Brian Behlendorf)* Multi tenancy (Rob Mustacchi)* Examining on-disk format (Max Bruning) == 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 accomplishTherefore, 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 projects ===These projects were worked on at the hackathon: * Testrunner suite running on other platforms: linux, freebsd (+ illumos libzpool)* channel programs: pass instruction stream into kernel* ZFS send progress reporting with "set proc title"* dedicated kmem_cache for dedup table entries* larger (1MB) blocksize * compressed ARC* upstreaming dbuf_user & dbuf state machine (spectra DMU changes)* limit DDT size* onexit for osx === 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. {|border="1" cellpadding="10"|- !| Name!| Affiliation!| What do you want to talk about?!| Your experience with ZFS!| Travel information!| T-shirt Size!| Food allergies/preferences?
