Release Notes: aoetools version 14 is bundled with the aoe driver. Compatibility with XFS for AoE on network cards without scatter gather support was added. The EtherDrive HOWTO was updated. The ed command is no longer used by the Makefile. Network buffers are now allocated on demand. Load balancing across multiple AoE paths was improved. A feature whereby unused or absent devices may be removed was added. An SMP race condition in multi-path AoE discovery was fixed.
Release Notes: On platforms without scatter-gather support for networking, the written AoE data was offset by 24 bytes in each packet. This release fixes the problem by correcting the information about the headers in the packet descriptor.
Release Notes: The device list can now be cleaned up by giving the aoe driver a "flush" command. A bugfix eliminates some "runt packet" error messages. A greater number of local AoE interfaces is now supported. Unaligned memory accesses are avoided. The udev rules were updated for compatibility with current versions of udev.
Release Notes: Compatibility with SuSE 9.1 was restored. The scripts were modified to eliminate the dependency on the bc and dc tools.
Release Notes: The new Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernels have a strange mixture of old and new sysfs functions. Version 34 updates the aoe driver compatibility system to work with these kernels.
Release Notes: This release adds better support for multiple network paths to the same AoE target. This driver should help users to make storage systems highly available by using redundant network paths.
Release Notes: In June, the skb_linearize function changed in the Linux kernel. This driver release provides support for newer kernels.
Release Notes: Extra data copying was avoided on write operations, and jumbo packet support was added, enhancing performance. Retransmissions were reduced by adding a more dynamic packet timer. A new module parameter allows the device timeout to be set. Documentation was updated.
Release Notes: Several minor code and documentation updates and cleanups were performed. A new makefile target was added for users who do not need devices to be installed.
Release Notes: ATA errors no longer trigger an ATA device identify request, avoiding a stream of logged ATA errors. Support for coexistence with other in-kernel AoE listeners was added. Compatibility with kernel 2.6.16 was added. A bug that could result in "lost" down devices was fixed.
