FreeBSD 8.0-RC1 釋出

在「FreeBSD 8.0-RC1 available」這邊提到 8.0-RC1 出來了,看起來是第一個 kernel 沒有一堆 debug info 的版本,要測效能這時候跳下去測會比 8.0-BETA4 準確,順便把之前一直在測試的 8.0-BETA4 升級到 8.0-RC1... (測 NFS 的穩定度)

用台灣的前兩個 mirror site 安裝,發現慢到爆炸 ( 與,分別是交大國高),實在沒時間找原因,暫時先跑去 抓...

事後看了 traceroute 與一些紀錄,交大的部份大概沒救,應該是奇怪的 filter 或是 routing 亂跑之類問題造成。國高因為只能看單邊 (TFN 端),看不出原因。


How many RC's we have will depend on how well 8.0-RC1 does. At the moment only one more RC is on the schedule but odds are fairly high we will wind up inserting at least one more RC. Between BETA4 and RC1 a lot of work has gone into IPv6 issues as well as many other issues that have been brought up from the public testing. And a patch set was committed by the people who handle porting ZFS to FreeBSD that they felt makes ZFS production-ready.


這之後到底還會出多少 RC,要看這次 release 的 8.0-RC1 表現的如何。照表操課最少還有一次 RC,不過因為從 8.0-BETA4 到 8.0-RC1 我們又翻動太多東西 (IPv6 與 ZFS),沒有意外的話應該會有東西爛掉,所以應該還會再多一個 RC。

至於 8.0 的 ZFSv13 是否 stable,我還是很懷疑... 備份時跑大量的 rsync 時,有一些 rsync process 會卡死 (process 砍不掉)。另外有 kernel level memory leak,不過這點可以用每天重開機來解決... (順便解決前面的卡死問題)
