btrfs Meltdown | LINUX Unplugged 87

After yet another gotcha takes down a critical Linux workstation, is it officially time to consider avoiding btrfs when it matters?

Holy cookies I did it..

I created a Jupiter Broadcasting Meetup group. I was inspired by the idea of how nice it would be to have a rough idea of how many folks will be making it out to LFNW. Just to help with planning.

Death of my #1 Rig Captured

Another btrfs snafu… glad I am sitting this one out
  • Stable kernel version 3.19.1+ can cause a deadlock at mount time
    • workaround: boot with older kernel, or run btrfs-zero-log to clear the log (beware of the consequences)
    • fix: scheduled for 3.19.4, or apply 9c4f61f01d269815bb7c37.
    • also affected: 3.14.35+, 3.18.9+
  • Versions from 3.15 up to 3.16.1 suffer from a deadlock that was observed during heavy rsync workloads with compression on, it’s recommended to use 3.16.2 and newer

Fedora Server 22 Is Using The XFS File-System By Default

The server edition of Fedora 22 is using the XFS file-system by default rather than EXT4.

Using the XFS file-system as the default within an LVM has been part of the Fedora Server technical spec while with Fedora 22 it’s finally happened. The default layout for Fedora Server 22 installations is using XFS atop LVM while /boot is outside the LVM setup.

XFS: There and back … and there again?
