Release Notes: This release adds port-level load-balancing and dynamic nodes. It fixes many minor bugs.
Release Notes: A bug that prevented clusters larger than 32 nodes has been fixed. Processes with open /proc files can migrate. The CVIP can be identical to a physical IP address. Hostnames in /etc/ cvip.conf are allowed. CFS can stack on ramfs. Some documentation has been improved, covering topics such as NFS, LTSP, and NTP.
Release Notes: This version's kernel is based on Red Hat's 2.4.20-30.9. It adds NTP support, online help features in the installation and addnode scripts, a README about networking, a fix for a load-leveling panic, an OpenSSI-specific Apache configuration, and a source of entropy for /dev/random.
Release Notes: This is the first release to feature an upgrade script, so that you do not have to uninstall an old version of OpenSSI before installing the new. This release includes various enhancements, such as failover and iSCSI support for root and non-root filesystems. It also comes with cluster-aware versions of strace and the ps command. Something new is a simple timesync mechanism to synchronize the time across the cluster to within a second or two. Included for convenience are required base packages that Red Hat does not install by default. Finally, several bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: Better support for running the X Window System on each node of the cluster, a new localview command that allows programs such as ps or top to see only local processes, support for machines with more than 1 GB of RAM, and faster cluster shutdown. Nodes that are kicked out of the cluster are now automatically rebooted. Many bugs were fixed, including several process-related issues and some triggered under load. A new six-page overview was also included.
Release Notes: This release is merged with Linux 2.4.18. rexec loadleveling was added so that overloaded nodes will do new execs on underloaded nodes. Certain files have been distributed in /proc/cluster, and the responsiveness of load leveler has been improved. Support for the /proc/PID/goto interface was added, as were some new features to the loadlevel command, code for Context-Dependent Symlinks (CDSLs), and support for gracefully handling the loss of a non-root CFS server. Mount, swapon, and fsck were enhanced to support a clusterwide fstab. The IPVS and libipvs sources were updated, and the documentation was cleaned up a bit.
Release Notes: Coherent cluster-wide shared mapped file support (which allows programs such as RPM and keepalive to work with a CFS root), new accept, getname, and release remote socket ops, making --bind mounts completely local, fixes for various build problems, fixes for ssidevfs code not to go berserk when large numbers of nodes join simultaneously, improved ICS and CLMS logging, and a bunch of other bugfixes.
Release Notes: Release is based on Alan Cox's 2.4.10-ac4 kernel tree and includes the latest version of OpenGFS. Integrated in the patch file is SGI's kernel debugger kdb-v1.9. rfork() process movement and fixes for various bugs/memory leaks were added.
