2018-09-18 13:33:48 yuriw knfs seem to be an orphan
2018-09-18 13:33:49 yuriw who should be an owner of it ? or maybe we need to remove it from runs ?
2018-09-18 13:34:10 yuriw sage joshd gregsfortytwo ^
2018-09-18 13:34:11 gregsfortytwo poor batrick
2018-09-18 13:34:17 gregsfortytwo is it failing?
2018-09-18 13:34:17 <-- med ( has quit
2018-09-18 13:35:45 yuriw
2018-09-18 13:36:18 yuriw vs
2018-09-18 13:37:24 gregsfortytwo hmm well the MDS_SLOW_METADATA_IO is almost certainly just a missing log whitelist
2018-09-18 13:38:06 gregsfortytwo not sure about the but that should get fixed
2018-09-18 13:38:16 gregsfortytwo ...and it looks like a missing target or something
2018-09-18 13:38:20 gregsfortytwo it's at least not a Ceph error
2018-09-18 13:38:30 gregsfortytwo maybe they want to kill the knfs suite but last I heard it covered some interesting bits
2018-09-18 13:38:32 batrick knfs isn't even a sensical configuration
2018-09-18 13:38:37 batrick i'm not even sure why we're testing it
2018-09-18 13:39:58 gregsfortytwo way to check we satisfy kernel interfaces properly?
2018-09-18 13:40:16 gregsfortytwo a simple and pretty high-performance nfs server people can use in limited configurations?
2018-09-18 13:40:36 gregsfortytwo there are a ton of good nfs tests that we can inherit from cheaply?
2018-09-18 13:40:43 * gregsfortytwo doesn't know if these reasons really apply or not
2018-09-18 13:41:18 batrick which kernel interface? that nfs server can run on kclient? not sure why we care
2018-09-18 13:42:31 batrick that "limited configuration" is a slippery slope IMO
2018-09-18 13:42:49 batrick I'm aware some people who shall not be named are using multiple knfs servers on top of cephfs
2018-09-18 13:42:52 batrick which is a big nono
2018-09-18 13:43:54 batrick anyway
2018-09-18 13:44:04 batrick My opinion is that it should be archived.
2018-09-18 13:44:20 gregsfortytwo yeah I can't find any discussion about it so maybe this was just a thing we did once that should be shelved
2018-09-18 13:45:27 yuriw copy let's use it as working assumption for 13.2.2 and see how it'll fly
2018-09-18 13:46:23 batrick yuriw: Hwo about make a PR against master that deletes qa/suites/knfs
2018-09-18 13:46:30 batrick with a tracker ticket
2018-09-18 13:46:34 batrick and we'll shepherd that through
2018-09-18 13:46:43 yuriw sure
