Slides from the pNFS BoF we delivered at LISA 11

Attached please find the slides that we presented yesterday at USENIX LISA  
11
conference in Boston. We would like to get more detailed input on other OS
that will support pNFS server/client (this is for Rick as well) that were
not mentioned in this slide set.

Re: Slides from the pNFS BoF we delivered at LISA 11 - with attachment this time

Thanks for the slides, Sorin.

Just fyi, it was correct to not mention a FreeBSD client, since the
4.1 client code hasn't made it into any release yet. It is available
as a patch against the FreeBSD9.0 kernel, in case anyone is interested:
   http://people.freebsd.org/~rmacklem/nfsv4.1-client/nfsv41.patch

I am just starting to work on the logistics of getting this into the
FreeBSD source tree, so it may be in a FreeBSD9.n release, where n > 0.

Also, the above does not include any pNFS support. I am about ready to
start coding pNFS client stuff, which brings me to...
- It will be difficult for me to make much progress without any
  pNFS servers to test against. (The only NFSv4.1 server I have to
  test against is Fedora15 and I don't think it knows how to do pNFS?
  If there is a way to make Fedora15/16 (or any other freebie Linux
  distro) do pNFS, please let me know.

If others have suggestions on how I might gain access to pNFS servers
for testing, I would appreciate hearing. (However, I am not funded to
do any of this, so the suggestions can't include my spending $$$. I can
make it to a Bakeathon when it happens to be close to where I am, so I
can show up "on the cheap", like I did last June in Ann Arbor.)

One suggestion is to try to use the pNFS for Lustre. I can send you the
patches or you can get them from Lustre tree. Let me know if this will be
good for you. We are already using it to test Linux file client as well as
Windows. Whamcloud demo it during SC11 and demo wire speed.

What I would also suggest is for you maybe to come to the Connectathon in
February and test the client against the other servers that you cannot have
as they are not products but prototypes.

Hi Rick,

we have user space pNFS server written in java. It's part of dCache
project but can be used stand alone for testing. Requires JVM and disk
space to store data blocks:

1. checkout and build

One way to go is the Linux pnfs project at linux-nfs.org start here:

It is an NFSD linux Kernel server with pNFS extensions destined to
