Telemetry for Uyuni - The research

a project by dleidi

Uyuni is an heterogeneous and giant project (actually it is a beast) made of many pieces, many languages, many internal architecture structures, and also very old and new technologies live in it. Said that, and based on the fact Uyuni delivers tons of features/functionalities not all the end users use, it is not trivial at all to understand

Scripts and recipes for setting up VMs with multipath and other compex storage stacks

a project by mwilck

Customers are using complex storage stacks such as LVM over dm-crypt over MD RAID over multipath over iSCSI and FC with LOTs of LUNs, and we're facing problems in that area which are usually very hard to reproduce. It's also hard to guard against regressions. Being able to quickly and reliably set up VMs with various types of storage / multipath is a key part of testing multipath. It's doable, but cumbersome and has a steep learning curve. I want to create easy-to-understand manual recipes plus scripts that are both easy to understand / customize and deploy.

netlink interface for ethtool

a project by mkubecek

There seems to be an overall consensus that the ioctl interface used by ethtool is a poor design as it's inflexible, error prone and notoriously hard to extend. It should clearly be replaced by netlink and obsoleted. Unfortunately not much actual work has been done in that direction until this project started. The project started in Hackweek 16 (fall 2017) and has been worked on since, both in Hackweek 17-19 and outside. First two parts of kernel implementation are in mainline since 5.6-rc1, first part of userspace implementation (ethtool utility) has been submitted to upstream at the end of Hackweek 19 (2020-02-16).

ocfs2: use iomap

an idea by goldwynr

iomap is a way to map file blocks to the device. Many filesystems such as xfs, ext4 or gfs2, use this common code to perform buffered and direct I/O. The advantage would be smaller codebase in individual filesystem code (ocfs2), lesser defects and better maintainability.

A CI/CD approach for Solid Ground

a project by vstsironis

Solid Ground is an essential software tool for the daily tasks of an L3 agent. A continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), and even more a continuous deployment, approach is currently missing from its development ecosystem slowing down its release cycles. Current project aspires to sketch the design principles of such approach and if possible to end up with a functional CI/CD mechanism that will be utilized in the next software releases of Solid Ground.

Update: hassio dropped py3.6 support in Dec 2019, since Leap 15.2 stays with python 3.6 rather that python 3.7, I've to use Tumbleweed instead.

Golan no vendor

a project by rjschwei

At present it is our practice to "vendor" all dependencies for a Golang package. This has the advantage that everything is in one nice package and self contained but it has the disadvantage that dependencies are hidden and therefore security issues may slip through the cracks. The idea is to investigate and create automation "go2rpm" that generates a spec file with the necessary "BuildRequires:" such that the dependencies can be broken into golang- packages and we get rid of the implicit dependency inclusion via "vendor". The potential problem is scale, with some golang applications having thousands of dependencies.

Graphics support for SGI Octane

a project by tsbogend

With the approach of kernel 5.6 SGI Octanes are supported with builtin IO components. What's missing for a graphics workstation is a driver for the graphics card. There is already a not upstreamed framebuffer driver for Impact graphic cards. Since there will be no new framebuffer driver accepted upstream, the goal of this project is to convert the existing frame buffer driver to a DRM driver and make it ready to be sent upstream.

Write a simple ESMTP mail server in Haskell

a project by psimons

Hackweek 21?

Postmaster desperately needs a mail spool. I need to come up with a good way to store meta information about queued messages. An sqlite database seems like a natural fit because I might want to do some nontrivial queries in there to figure out which messages to deliver (and where). On the other hand, interfacing with sqlite is a bit unpleasant, so instead I might want to write one big JSON file that contains all relevant information. That would certainly suffice for the first version ...

Smart tool to show current K8s network performance

an idea by mosquetero

How cool would be it if a Sales Engineer could run a tool in the customer's site that measures the network performance to demonstrate how fast our K8s platform is? What if the customer could do that herself/himself to provide useful information to our support team in order to find the source of a bug? What about using such tool for our CI to discover potential performance regressions? What if the tool was smart enough to change configurations on the fly and run optional tests based on the measurements it collects? It is obvious there is a wide variety of use cases where we could benefit from such tool. I have been learning Kubernetes and go for a few months and now it is time to combine both! This tool will use a K8s controller that will create pods to do the measurements and then fetch the results. Based on those, it will decide to just return those values or change config and run extra tests.

Tool to help diagnosing stalling system

a project by jankara

Diagnosing issues with stalling desktop application (or a whole desktop environment) is difficult these days as the application often requires multiple processes interconnected with sockets, pipes, futexes, etc. to work and often it is not clear which process is the one responsible for blocking the whole ecosystem. The idea of this project is to write a tool that gathers information about processes in the system and for each process that is sleeping display the resource (file, socket, futex) it is waiting on as well as the process that is likely responsible for unblocking (feeding pipe, sending data to socket, unlock futex, ...). Once the information is gathered, we can also plot it for graphical displaying with tools like graphviz.
