[10:35:03] <rjvb> during apt/dpkg operations, the "reading database" step can take *really* long
[10:36:17] <rjvb> none of the dataset tuning attempts I've made to date made any real difference there
[10:57:26] <bunder> do they only have one guy on the phones doing support requests
[11:24:57] <MTecknology> bunder: dunno how that's relevant here, but Canonical is a company that's generally good at keeping around experts. Those experts are generally excellent at resolving issues in a very timely manner. Also- most of that revenue is not going to be support requests because companies that pay for ubuntu support are looking for things like landscape and employ their own experts.

[13:51:11] <rjvb> all on pool on a partition of an internal SSHD,
[13:52:08] <rjvb> when I say really long it can be a minute or more (never really timed it); you can see the percentage counter advance in slow bursts, often getting stuck at around the 45% mark
[13:52:59] <rjvb> not as on e.g. btrfs where it will count up to 100% just slow enough to read the progress values

[15:51:16] <elxa_> do you split ssds using partitions or lvm to split their storage for zil, l2arc, allocation classes?
[15:51:18] *** elxa_ is now known as elxa
[15:51:47] <gchristensen> elxa: do you have many SSDs or one SSD?
[15:52:14] <gchristensen> I'm ... pretty sure ... you won't get any benefit of putting a zil and/or l2arc on the same device as storage
[15:54:21] <elxa> gchristensen: ssds are big and powerful, my workload is mostly read. So I figured I could add 4x NVMe SSDs in a 1xPCIe x16 to 4x m.2 PCIe adapter and use it in various ways?
[15:55:11] <elxa> e.g. for allocation classes I thought I should have the same raid level on the ssds as on the main storage
[15:55:24] <gchristensen> if mostly read, a zil isn't so useful, but an l2arc is useful if reading from the l2arc is faster than reading from the storage itself
[15:57:24] <gchristensen> and maybe the l2arc is faster to read from than storage due to optimisations? not sure. I wouldn't slice up a single device though...
[15:57:42] <gchristensen> I don't know anything about allocation classes
[15:59:13] <elxa> gchristensen: allocation classes are coming with 0.8.0 afaik. It is about moving certain data (metadata or data below a certain size) from the main storage to the "special device" (ssds)
[16:01:29] <elxa> so for any write the data matching those (to some extent configurable) conditions will go to the special device unless it is full (fallback to main storage)
[16:02:17] <gchristensen> still not sure that is useful when your disks are all the same like that
[16:02:18] <elxa> on my pools listing directories/files is a relatively slow operation. I did some testing using l2arc and it helped a lot, but allocation classes will basically mean I don't need to warm up the cache to achieve the same :D
[16:04:04] <gchristensen> oh well if you've benchmarked you should tell me to piss off :P
[16:06:11] *** tlacatlc6 <email@example.com> has joined #zfsonlinux
[16:08:47] <elxa> well nothing special. I timed "find /path/to/pool" with cold l2arc and warm l2arc. Quite the difference :)
[16:09:08] <gchristensen> and how does that compare to doing it twice without an l2arc?
[16:09:44] <elxa> doing what twice?
[16:09:56] <gchristensen> the `find /path/to/pool`
[16:10:29] <gchristensen> the speedup with the l2arc could have been many things, like the dirent cache
[16:12:59] <elxa> gchristensen: you're probably right, many cache layers could've helped. I want to use allocation classes to move some of my cache to ssds in a (reboot) persistent manner.
[16:16:08] <elxa> yes l2arc is (not yet) persistent
[16:16:29] <elxa> brackets fail :D
[16:17:24] <elxa> it seems such waste for modern nvme drives to use them for just one of zil/l2arc/allocation classes
[16:17:33] <elxa> in my systems they will be mostly idle :D
[16:18:01] <elxa> compared to the performance that they offer
[16:18:19] <gchristensen> you could get much less good performance drives, and then they'll be idle less?
[16:18:52] <gchristensen> (that is a joke)
[16:19:01] <elxa> I don't need dramatic improvements, anything ssd based will blow hard disks out of the window :)
[16:20:06] <elxa> except for sustained writes maybe?
[16:21:00] <elxa> I went cheap (capacity instead of performance) on my desktop with a samsung 850 evo 1tb

[18:46:45] <ptx0> well
[18:46:50] <ptx0> ceph is a multi host filesystem
[18:47:00] <ptx0> when it generates the checksum it is comparing object A to B and C's
[18:47:06] <gchristensen> :|
[18:47:07] <ptx0> i guess if B and C have consensus then A is wrong

[18:52:42] <ptx0> BlueStore calculates, stores, and verifies checksums for all data and metadata it stores. Any time data is read off of disk, a checksum is used to verify the data is correct before it is exposed to any other part of the system (or the user).
[18:52:47] <ptx0> By default we use the crc32c checksum. A few others are available (xxhash32, xxhash64), and it is also possible to use a truncated crc32c (i.e., only 8 or 16 bits of the 32 available bits) to reduce the metadata tracking overhead at the expense of reliability. It’s also possible to disable checksums entirely (although this is definitely not recommended). See the checksum section of the docs for more
[18:52:53] <ptx0> information.
[18:52:55] <ptx0> crc32 though

[18:53:31] <ptx0> that's what i find myself saying a LOT when looking at Ceph docs/source
[18:53:47] *** hsp <hsp!~hsp@unaffiliated/hsp> has joined #zfsonlinux
[18:53:52] <PMT> maybe if IBM gets desperate they'll open source GPFS as Ceph 2 =P
[18:54:00] <ptx0> i thought they were already desperate
[18:54:09] <PMT> unclear
[18:54:20] <PMT> did you see the NSA is releasing their reveng toolkit at RSA
[18:54:22] <ptx0> i mean
[18:54:26] <ptx0> they bought RedHat
[18:54:54] <ptx0> 34 billion dollars
[18:55:00] <PMT> i'll be really fascinated to see how they handle the culture clash
[18:55:01] <ptx0> that does not spell desperation?
[18:55:03] <DeHackEd> does CRC32 have known defects? (other than lack of crypto secureness)
[18:55:24] <DeHackEd> I mean, okay, only 32 bits, but in theory you're defending against a flaky drive/controller and not an evil enemy
[18:55:35] <PMT> DeHackEd: mostly just that it's a weaker checksum and it's not clear it's much faster than e.g. lzjb or friends
[18:55:40] <ptx0> psh if crc were so great then the on disk corruption checking would work
[18:55:50] <PMT> ptx0: tbf it often works for me
[18:55:59] <ptx0> yeah well it does here too but that ruins my point so stfu
[18:56:17] <DeHackEd> objection, lzjb isn't a checksum algorithm
[18:56:28] <PMT> excuse me, brainfart
[18:56:30] <PMT> fletcher
[18:56:31] <ptx0> DeHackEd: but can't you try decompressing and if fail, checksum obv broken
[18:56:35] <ptx0> :P
[18:56:47] <PMT> ptx0: or compression broken :P
[18:57:03] <ptx0> this is a ceph feature, we work on Consensus (TM) here.

[18:57:41] <ptx0> weird, didn't know IBM bought Verizon's cloud business
[18:57:51] <PMT> ptx0: I did say you could do it if you have an AMD GPU
[18:57:53] <ptx0> also, it's weird that a company can just buy a department from another company, isn't it?
[18:57:56] <PMT> (re: freesync/g-sync)
[18:58:27] <PMT> ptx0: I believe it's usually the case that said dept is spun out into a distinct company and then that gets bought
[18:58:42] <ptx0> looks like IBM has spent almost 100 billion in acquisitions in the last decade
[18:58:48] <PMT> only?
[18:58:52] <gchristensen> DeHackEd: drive controllers are my sworn, evil enemy anyway
[18:59:35] <ptx0> PMT: that's probable. it was called Verizon Cloud Business

[19:01:03] <PMT> seriously though, why does my version control system use a stronger checksum than almost any filesystem

[19:01:29] *** shibboleth <shibboleth!~shibbolet@gateway/tor-sasl/shibboleth> has joined #zfsonlinux
[19:01:37] <ptx0> because you didn't submit a PR for ZFS to have stronger checksums yet
[19:01:59] <PMT> i was just talking about use of sha1, e.g. not crc32 =P
[19:02:06] <DeHackEd> (zfs has sha256 even without any feature flags)
[19:02:21] <DeHackEd> (not default, but available)
[19:02:37] <PMT> I am aware
[19:02:38] <PMT> monolith checksum sha256 local
[19:02:41] <gchristensen> PMT: do you fsck your version control? many don't and ... ugh
[19:03:24] <gchristensen> fetch.fsckObjects = true and receive.fsckObjects = true and transfer.fsckObjects = true
[19:03:29] <DeHackEd> also, your *distributed* *network-enabled* version control has a stronger checksum since 2nd and 3rd parties may have write access to it
[19:03:52] <DeHackEd> again, ZFS, Ceph and the like are designed around the only real "enemy" being hardware with a bad case of the crazies
[19:04:05] <ptx0> if you store ceph on zfs you get double checksum
[19:04:09] <ptx0> double better
[19:04:14] <ptx0> double safe!
[19:05:47] <DeHackEd> I might actually be doing something like that later this year
[19:05:57] <DeHackEd> though ZFS itself probably won't be doing any mirrors or RAID-Z...
[19:07:32] <PMT> i also enjoyed the fun demo of superobj repos on github
[19:08:41] <DeHackEd> first I'll need moar disks
[19:09:38] <PMT> ptx0: i know people who did that.
[19:13:21] * ptx0 does that
[19:13:40] <ptx0> i had to fight tooth and nail to make sure it's ceph on top of ZFS and not the other way around
[19:14:00] <ptx0> the perserverance and ignorance of some people astounds me
[19:14:21] <PMT> yeah i uh
[19:14:27] <PMT> know that feeling
[19:15:01] <ptx0> "but if you put zfs on ceph you only access the cluster via one host and then if it goes down you have to wait for import, and, the storage protocol would be limited to iscsi/nfs/cifs and not native rbd..."
[19:15:13] <ptx0> there are so many fuckin reasons not to do it
[19:25:50] *** Albori <Albori!~Albori@216-229-75-72.fidnet.com> has joined #zfsonlinux
[19:38:40] <DeHackEd> well no, you don't dedicate a ceph cluster to a single ZFS pool...
[19:39:10] <DeHackEd> this is more a matter of trying to answer the age old question: do you run ZFS on ZFS volume? (where "ZFS" could be swapped for Ceph in one of those two places)
[19:39:58] <ptx0> but then i could just snapshot and send a single volume instead of the individual datasets in the pool
[19:40:16] <ptx0> imagine that, never needing to use send -R
[19:40:27] <DeHackEd> but then the VM itself lacks the ability to access snapshots so readily
[19:40:35] <ptx0> it has its own zfs pool yo
[19:40:38] <ptx0> it can snapshot inside
[19:41:04] <DeHackEd> yeah... raw disks -> ceph (for VM cluster reasons) -> VM -> zfs (for snapshots, compression, etc) -> apps
[19:41:19] <DeHackEd> (ceph does support snapshots, but I'm a bit confused by what you can and can't do with it)
[19:41:25] <ptx0> me too
[19:41:28] <ptx0> :P
[19:41:44] <DeHackEd> oh good, glad I'm not completely retarded
[19:43:02] <DeHackEd> there's also weird shit like a cluster consists of multiple pools and I think you can snapshot/clone a volume into another pool or something... it's weird...
[19:59:20] <ptx0> aw man
[19:59:30] <ptx0> the modem we've got here at my new place only has a 100mbps internal switch
[19:59:31] <ptx0> wtf

[20:02:08] <ptx0> oh, wait

[20:09:53] <Lalufu> 4 pins connected only?
[20:09:53] <ptx0> much more reasonable than the 95mbps-ish
[20:09:58] <ptx0> no idea
[20:10:08] <ptx0> i can just chop the ends off and put new ones
[20:10:17] <ptx0> but i'll probably forget and just go through this again someday
[20:10:48] <gchristensen> throw it away?
[20:11:13] <ptx0> it is a 50 metre length of cable...
[20:11:24] <gchristensen> cut the ends off now, then? :)
[20:11:26] <ptx0> do you just throw everything away that is repairable?
[20:11:35] <ptx0> now that's the first sensible thing you've said all day :)
[20:11:39] <gchristensen> it is not!
[20:11:48] <ptx0> oh, back to insanity..
[20:12:07] <gchristensen> I throw away things which are low value and useless to me and cause me trouble, and saves me trouble later.

[21:56:44] <ptx0> dude, that description
[21:56:45] <ptx0> ZFS on Linux is an advanced file system and volume manager which was originally developed for Solaris and is now maintained by the OpenZFS community. ZoF is the work to bring FreeBSD support into the ZoL repo.
[21:56:50] <ptx0> who the hell wrote that lol
[21:56:59] <ptx0> ZFS on Linux was developed for Solaris?
[21:58:19] <Markow> haha
[21:58:30] <Markow> I couldn't help laugh
[21:58:38] <DeHackEd> no, it's funny, carry on laughing
[21:59:01] <ptx0> mm that project seems stupid
[21:59:17] <ptx0> it has one person, not even one of the principle freebsd zfs developers, contributing to it
[21:59:30] <DeHackEd> which project? discard ZFS in BSD, replace with Linux variant?
[21:59:44] <Markow> It's a good catch
[21:59:44] <ptx0> the out-of-tree ZoL port to FreeBSD
[22:00:02] <bunder> i'm sure more will contribute once they can get it working
[22:00:21] <ptx0> i doubt it
[22:00:22] <bunder> i'm guessing its not in a working state at the moment
[22:00:27] <ptx0> this is the same dude who forked freebsd a couple times
[22:01:44] <ptx0> he seems to have an axe to grind with just about every one of the freebsd zfs developers
[22:01:50] <ptx0> so, i don't think this project is going to go anywhere
[22:02:01] <ptx0> other than, in circles, on his own hardware
[22:02:22] * bunder shrug
[22:02:27] <bunder> someone has to do the work
[22:02:49] <bunder> i doubt allan is gonna do it all by himself
[22:03:37] <ptx0> allan isn't the only zfs developer, just one of the people not being consulted on the changes
[22:03:40] <ptx0> :P
[22:04:00] <DeHackEd> am I a ZFS developer?
[22:04:07] <DeHackEd> (no really, I'm not sure and want to know)
[22:04:26] <bunder> in a loose sense i guess so, but no officially :P
[22:04:47] <ptx0> no but you are a stakeholder.

[22:07:29] <ptx0> is it a bad omen that Steven Hartland's username is smh?
[22:08:04] <ptx0> his main gripe with switching freebsd-zfs for zfsonlinuxonfreebsd is that ZoL lacks TRIM, lmao
[22:08:34] <ptx0> "so then respond to the email i CC'd you on a week ago to review the TRIM PR" was mmacy's response
[22:14:54] <DeHackEd> trim isn't even that big a deal. modern SSDs perform very well without it. if your system is bottleneck'd on untrim'd disks, you have more serious issues
[22:15:49] <ptx0> it's for thin provisioned storage aiui
[22:16:04] <ptx0> at least thats why /i/ care about trim
[22:16:20] <ptx0> zpool initialize provides an interesting middle ground there
[22:16:27] <bunder> yeah i was about to say
[22:16:36] <bunder> that initialize pr is floating around here somewhere
[22:16:40] <ptx0> it's a neat way of bypassing snapshots instead of doing dd if=/dev/zero of=../file/...
[22:16:41] <DeHackEd> TRIM + zpool initialize = endless fun

[23:35:55] <PMT> phantomcircuit: what does dkms status say?
[23:36:06] <phantomcircuit> the 3 services are failed with "The ZFS modules are not loaded.\nTry running '/sbin/modprobe zfs' as root to load them."
[23:36:17] <DeHackEd> and what does that modprobe command say?
[23:36:29] <phantomcircuit> modprobe zfs works fine, but they dont load on boot so the services fail
[23:41:28] <PMT> so regenerate your initramfs or equivalent
[23:41:53] <phantomcircuit> i did
[23:42:14] <phantomcircuit> (twice actually, once after the apt install triggered one as well)
[23:42:42] <PMT> are the modules in the initramfs?
[23:43:45] <phantomcircuit> i'll try again i guess
[23:43:51] <PMT> I'm not asking you to try again.
[23:43:54] <PMT> I'm asking you if they're there.
[23:44:08] <phantomcircuit> maybe zfs needs to be loaded when the initramfs is generated ? lets find out

[23:46:23] <phantomcircuit> PMT, im not booting to zfs
[23:47:09] <PMT> Okay. So you're talking about it being loadable after it boots. I assumed you said "followed the instructions" because you were, indeed, following the root-on-zfs instructions.
[23:47:48] <bunder> i notice you didn't mention the import service, it probably loads the module there
[23:47:53] <PMT> phantomcircuit: if you could pastebin the output from dpkg -l | egrep 'ii (spl|zfs|libuutil|libnvpair|libzfs|libzpool)' it might useful.
[23:47:57] <PMT> might be, even
[23:49:05] <phantomcircuit> well grep says zfs is in the initrd file
[23:49:06] <PMT> bunder: so, on my Debian stretch system that loads ZFS on boot: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Nov 19 06:32 /lib/systemd/system/zfs-import.service -> /dev/null
[23:49:26] <PMT> phantomcircuit: did you unpack the initramfs and see if the module is there, or did you just grep the binary and hope for the best

[23:53:02] <PMT> phantomcircuit: you may find the package "zfs-initramfs" useful for your life.
[23:54:02] <PMT> You may not. It may be unnecessary. But if it's not in the initramfs, and there's a package that adds initramfs hooks for it, that'd be my suggestion absent more data.
[23:54:30] <PMT> If it is in the initramfs, then this becomes more interesting.
[23:55:07] <bunder> shouldn't need it if you're not booting off it, i'm no systemd guy but that output says the import scripts are dead
[23:56:17] <PMT> You probably only want zfs-import-cache unless you want it to try importing everything it sees on boot, versus whatever it thought was imported before.
[23:56:47] <phantomcircuit> bunder, zfs-import-cache.service is indeed what loads the module
[23:57:41] <bunder> so why is it dead :P
[23:57:51] <phantomcircuit> which seems to be in the preset file but is still inactive
