Improve retty tool

a project by jankara

Retty is a tool for changing stdin,stdout,stderr of a running process (http://pasky.or.cz/dev/retty/) which may be handy if you want to attach to a process running e.g. from a died ssh session, changing running process to run from under screen(1) etc.. Currently it doesn't work for 64-bit systems and it doesn't handle changing of a controlling tty of a process (which may be possible using setsid() and opening a new tty). The aim of this project it to fix the above deficiencies and package the tool in OBS.

Bisect (open)SUSE kernels using prebuilt packages

an idea by michal-m

I have been building an archive of the x86_64/default KOTDs for some months now. It's time to make them available at least internally and write some web frontend to the archive. The frontend could do various things: * Display all packages for a given branch

Investigate and model Ceph cluster performance

a project by LarsMB

Predicting the non-functional properties of a Ceph cluster can be quite difficult. There are many inputs in the hardware setup and software configuration that affect the resulting availability, reliability and performance (latency and throughput at nominal levels and during degraded and rebuild times). I want to understand the interrelationship of these parameters better and build a (perhaps interactive) model that allows us to predict the result without the need to build a ten thousand node cluster.

Ciabatta reloaded: Work on a Heat-driven SUSE demo/QA environment as an OpenStack Horizon plugin

a project by joachimwerner

I want to revive my "Cloud in a Box" project and this time focus on how OpenStack's Heat automation framework can help with setting up a complete demo or QA environment consisting of several SUSE products (e.g. a SLEPOS Admin/Branch/Client environment). Looking for contributors who want to hack OpenStack (especially work on a Horizon UI plugin for managing Heat-based "SUSE blueprints").

Testing CRIU and containers

Although I've been maintaining CRIU package, I had little time to play with it recently. It's still interesting especially in combination with various containers. So let's spend (or waste) some time.

Optimize kdump speed with 6+ TB of RAM

a project by ptesarik

The kdump package can now use SMP and multiple targets with constant memory requirements. The goal of this project is to find the optimum parameters for dumping a very large machine (SAP can give me access to 6TB, SGI is able to test with 64 TB).

Biofeedback / Neuroscanner / Dreamanalyser

an idea by chuller

This project is based on some hack of a mind flex toy containing a so called "neurosky eeg" chip. Having a sensor connected to your skull this system can meassure several waves emitting from the brain, also called brainwaves. The Idea is to combine this system with some camera based monitoring system that will watch a test subject while sleeping and recording the corresponding brainwaves for later analysis of brainactivity and body movement. Other use cases do exist, this was the only one i could come up with that involves sleeping in the office ;)

SSDBoost

play with Coccinelle and lock checking

a project by mhocko

We had a quick course of Coccinelle during the last Labs conference. The tool is really great and I would like to explore possibility of checking lock invariants for particular functions. Julia was really prompt and implemented something that should help but I didn't get to it since the conference.

try to understand cups > 1.5

a project by mhocko

Starting with CUPS 1.6 things have changed considerably. Clients are no longer discovering broadcasted printers anymore. Distributions (e.g. Debian) has backported the original protocol into cups-daemon package but this doesn't seem to work either on my laptop. I would like to look and try to understand what the hack is going on here. The outcome should be my understanding of the change and how to configure CUPs to behave reasonably again.

understand and possibly improve cscope

a project by mhocko

cscope is a great tool index C/C++ sources and allow to navigate through the code. I have learned that the project is mostly dead and what is worse it uses its own database format to store the index. I would like to see some extended functionality in the tool - e.g. search whether a function A is reachable from B, filtering search results per-file, fix functions with function parameter detection (such functions are not recognized properly currently) and some others. See if the cscope specific storage can be replaced by a more generic database (sqlite?) and understand how the code flow works so that new extensions would be easier to implement.

finish de-l3slaveing of crash-setup

a project by mhocko

The primary motivation for crash-setup (created by l3team) is to make kernel crashdumps deployment and crash using as easy as possible. This has been the case for quite some time except the tool was quite l3slave centric. With a great help from tcech the tool is close to be fully usable from other machines and !.de network as well. Let's finish the last pieces. This looks like a very minor project but it will be great to have it finally!

Ceph crushmap visualization

a project by qakapil

The CRUSH algorithm determines how to store and retrieve data by computing data storage locations. CRUSH empowers Ceph clients to communicate with OSDs directly rather than through a centralized server or broker. With an algorithmically determined method of storing and retrieving data, Ceph avoids a single point of failure, a performance bottleneck, and a physical limit to its scalability. CRUSH requires a map of your cluster, and uses the CRUSH map to pseudo-randomly store and retrieve data in OSDs with a uniform distribution of data across the cluster. This project aims at creating graphs of the crush map, for better visualization of the Ceph cluster.
