* How to control the order of different export options for different client formats?

I'm using CentOS 5.x (nfs-utils based on v1.0.9) - and have been using 
the following in /etc/exports:

/export *(rw,async) @backup(rw,no_root_squash,async)

which works fine - hosts in the backup NIS netgroup mount the file 
system with no_root_squash and other clients with root_squash

However, I now want to restrict the export to all clients in a single 
subnet - so I now have /etc/exports as:

/export 172.16.0.0/20(rw,async) @backup(rw,no_root_squash,async)

Unfortunately, hosts in the backup NIS netgroup (which are also in the 
172.16.0.0/20 subnet) no longer mount with no_root_squash

It appears that the subnet export takes precedence over the netgroup 
export (it doesn't matter in what order the subnets/netgroups exports 
are listed in /etc/exports) - so the netgroup client options are ignored 
as a match has already been found in the subnet export.

Is there any way to control the order in which clients are checked for 
export options?

i.e. I would like netgroups to take precedence over subnets

Thanks

Unfortunately you cannot do that.

The place in the code where this is determined is towards the end of
'lookup_export' in utils/mountd/cache.c

Were I to try to 'fix' this I would probably define a new field in 'struct
exportent' which holds a 'priority'.

Then allow a setting like "priority=4" in /etc/exports

Then change the code in lookup_export to choose the one with the higher
priority, rather than the 'first' one.

You're out of luck here - the entires are checked in the following
order: FQDN, subnet, wildcard, netgroup, anonymous and finally gss.
Here 'wildcard' means anything except the bare '*' which is considered
anonymous.  Any entries on the same "level", i.e. two netgroups or two
FQDNs are checked in the same order in which they appear in
/etc/exports.

I've hacked the source to make netgroups take precedence over subnets by 
  moving MCL_NETGROUP before MCL_SUBNETWORK in the enum in 
support/include/exportfs.h - which works for me, as I only use 
netgroups, subnets and anonymous (in that priority order).

IMHO the priority of exports should really be as they appear on the line 
in /etc/exports, but I guess if that were to change, it would break 
existing /etc/exports that use the current priority ordering (either by 
design or accident!).

Having a priority option would be a very good idea - and may be in the 
meantime the exports man page should be updated with info about the 
current priority ordering?

Thanks

Hi,

I have done pNFS setup with single Dataserver and Two Dataserver and ran the IOzone tool on both, I found that the performance with multiple dataservers is less than the performance with single dataservers.

Here are some numbers, which were captured by the IOzone tool.


							  4	  8	 16	 32	 64	 128	 256	 512	1024	<== Record Length in KB
With Single Dataserver:
Read operation for file size 1 MB-		66415	66359	63630	70358	86223	70256	66047	66068	68489	<== IO kB/sec
Write operation for file size 1 MB-		18827	16920	18846	17039	18896	17009	17173	19206	17947	<== IO kB/sec

With Two Dataservers :
Read operation for file size 1 MB-		36882	381198	38150	38084	38749	33663	34398	37313	37847	<== IO kB/sec
Write operation for file size 1 MB-		5461	4661	5586	4870	5227	4922	4214	5572	4658	<== IO kB/sec


Can somebody tell me What could be the issue....

Sounds reasonable to me.

Maybe some new /etc/exports syntax could allow the administrator to opt
into a new priority ordering.

Sounds good.  Could you send in a patch?

Hi,

I am using on Server linux-pnfs-2.6.38(linux-pnfs-ae7441f.tar) and on client also linux-pnfs-2.6.38(linux-pnfs-ae7441f.tar) downloaded from http://git.linux-nfs.org/?p=bhalevy/linux-pnfs.git;a=summary on Fedora 14.

Extremely sorry for causing confusing .

So you're using GFS2 on the server?  With what sort of storage?

Oh.  As noted there, spnfs is unmaintained.

And, in any case, we'd need many more details about your setup.

Oh.  As noted there, spnfs is unmaintained.

And, in any case, we'd need many more details about your setup.

There isn't really any supported server-side pNFS.

The closest is the GFS2-based code, for which you need to install
Benny's latest tree, configure a shared block device, create a GFS2
filesystem on it, mount it across all DS's and the MDS, and export it
from all of them--but I don't believe anyone has written step-by-step
instructions for that.

I guess Bruce is saying the step-by-step procedure is not written up...

Create a Redhat cluster using the shared block storage(iSCSI in your case I guess). You would get documentation on creating a RH cluster in many places..

All the MDSs and the DSs need to be part of the cluster.

Format GFS2 on the shared iSCSI storage.

Mount the GFS2 formatted iSCSI storage on all the MDSs and DSs and export them via NFS. Use Benny's tree for NFS.

The GFS2 cluster backend is your glue to scale the MDSes and DSes.

Priorities?

But could we just combine this with the previous section--and make sure
the different possibilities are listed there in the correct priority
order to start off with.

That'd also mean adding a new subsection for the "anonymous" case.

Hi Bruce, Shyam

 As mentioned here http://wiki.linux-nfs.org/wiki/index.php/PNFS_server_projects gfs2 is also having issues(crashes, performance), so instead of going for gfs2 can we debug spNFS itself to get high performance?

I guess Bruce is saying the step-by-step procedure is not written up...

Create a Redhat cluster using the shared block storage(iSCSI in your case I guess). You would get documentation on creating a RH cluster in many places..

All the MDSs and the DSs need to be part of the cluster.

Format GFS2 on the shared iSCSI storage.

Mount the GFS2 formatted iSCSI storage on all the MDSs and DSs and export them via NFS. Use Benny's tree for NFS.

The GFS2 cluster backend is your glue to scale the MDSes and DSes.

As far as I'm aware that is historical information. If there are still
problems with GFS2, then please report them so we can work on them,

Well, they may be nfs problems rather than gfs2 problems.

In either case, neither pnfs/gfs2 nor spnfs is a particularly mature
project; you will find bugs and performance problems in both.

I think a cluster-filesystem-based approach probably has the better
chance of getting merged earlier, as it solves a number of thorny
problems (such as how to do IO through the MDS) for you.  But it all
depends on what your goals are.  Either will require significant
development work to get into acceptable shape.

OK - how about the attached patch?

Looks good to me, thanks.

My one quibble is with the statement that "single host" "is the most
common format".  (I don't think we know that.)

Fix that, and just resend with a brief changelog comment and a

and steved should get around to applying it eventually....

The "This is the most common format" statement is in the existing 
exports man page - i.e. nothing to do with my patch ...

However, I'll remove that statement as well and submit the patch
