Test methods to transfer NSS and DCSS objects from one z/VM system to another

a project by markkp

Last Hackweek I created a rescue system that is composed of a SUSE Linux kernel in an NSS (Named Saved System) and an xip2fs file system in a DCSS (Dis-Continguous Save Segment). This allows any Linux guest on a z/VM system to say "#cp ipl rescue" and have a fully functional SUSE Linux Enterprise system come up to allow them to fix what ever is wrong with the guest. This Hackweek I want to try to figure out a way to take those two components and package them so that our customers could download them and put them on their z/VM system, using only typical z/VM tools. The rescue system is the output of a Kiwi build in the internal Build Service, which means it can be easily updated as needed.

PGAS is an alternative to the Message Passing Interface (MPI) generally used, although the UPC coexists well with the various MPI implementations. My goal is to package the preprocessing tools necessary to allow PGAS to run in OpenSUSE. This requires the following steps:

Agentless Systems Management Based on Salt SSH

a project by j_renner

This project is about using Salt SSH for managing systems without the need of an additional agent to be installed (besides sshd). With the SSH protocol the connection is initiated by the management server, thus Salt SSH can be used to even manage systems that are located outside of company firewalls, i.e. machines that cannot access a salt-master due to firewall restrictions. In order to still be able to access resources inside a company network though it would be very helpful if the salt-ssh command supported remote port forwarding (as with the -R parameter of the ssh command) for tunneling other traffic through the existing ssh connection, for instance a package manager might want to install packages from a company internal RPM repository. A patch was therefore contributed to Salt SSH in order to enable this feature (merged into develop):

open-iscsi database untanglement

an idea by lee_duncan

The open-iscsi package uses a file/directory-based database -- actually, 3 databases: the "send targets" done with their results, the "nodes" found, and the "interfaces" known/used. But there are inefficiencies when dealing with thousands of targets, and the "node" and "send target" databases could easily be combined. Perhaps moved into a real database? Also, the sysfs interaction that open-iscsi does is terrible with thousands of targets, perhaps even O(n^2), which would really really suck. I'd like to investigate the relationship of sysfs access to number of targets/LUNs to verify this.

configurable handling of kernel thermal shutdown

Currently when the kernel notices critical temperature, it unconditionally shuts down. This can lead to a loss of work (applications are terminated and many just don't save any work in progress). From a technical point of view it is not always the optimal solution either - proper shutdown takes time and it may well happen that some sort of physical damage may happen due to prolonged high temperature. Thus the option to allow some tweaking of the critical temperature action is desirable.
