Subject Re: [VOTE]Apache CloudStack 4.4.3 release candidate 4.4-RC20150325T1036
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2015 18:40:17 GMT
I put the things I know about in the 4.5 vote thread, to hopefully
make it into release notes or something later on. I haven't followed
up to see if that has happened.

The primary things that come to mind for 4.5 are the interface device
names and a cgroups issue. For networking, we only support
eth*,bond*,vx*,em*,vlan*, and even then only support physical device
names with up to 8 characters, It may be tough to support some
custom/dynamic nic names, but we could also add eno* to the list for
better support. In the meantime this can be worked around with some
kernel params (biosdevname=0 net.ifnames=0) that go back to the
standard "eth" naming.

The cgroups issue is that by default now the cpu and cpuacct cgroups
are 'comounted', so libvirt throws up when we try to use them. You can
see this in /sys/fs/cgroup, cpu and cpuacct share a mount
"cpu,cupacct" rather than having their own. Specify an empty
JoinControllers parameter in /etc/systemd/system.conf to fix this.

Other than that, the iptables command compatibility layer seems to
keep things working from a security groups perspective, and the
libvirt/qemu versions seem to be compatible.
