UEFI-Boot, GPT and raidframe I have a new machine that wants to boot UEFI, and it has two disks that I want to mirror. I have booted NetBSD-8.0_BETA-amd64-uefi-install.img off a USB stick, and went from sysinst to shell. This implies I have tools and sets (in /amd64/binary/sets) locally, and a /targetroot directory. Several config files need to be created; I show them as "cat > file" because that shows what goes in there but by all means use a proper editor if you can't use cut+paste. UEFI does not use...

Contact: tech-kern Mentors: Christos Zoulas Duration estimate: two months Test and debug the RAID 6 implementation in RAIDframe. NetBSD uses RAIDframe (raid(4)) and stub code exists for RAID6 but is not very documented or well tested. Obviously, this code needs to be researched and vetted by an interested party. Other BSD projects should be consulted freely. Milestones: * setup a working RAID 6 using RAIDFrame * document RAID6 in raid(4) manual page * port/develop a set of reliability and performance...

set-up raidframe
After posting lots of questions, and getting lots of expert help, I finally got my new server up and running with raid! Since I asked so many questions, it was suggested that I recap the process so that someone else might be able to make it work without having to ask! So ... Here's what I did recently to get raid(4) up and running on my new server. This is really important! Read the man page for raidctl(8). It is a long man page, but it is important to understand how things work. And there are some...

Behold! For now I have a wiki page! Blame for: raid(4) parity maps. The Xen block device backend in all its trampolined glory. Also, the Xen clock. The sparse kernel core dumps on i386. Assorted minor fixes. Probably stuff I'm forgetting. TODO: Fix raidctl(8) -m output for RAID-0 sets. Re-re-re-re-dust-off the raid(4) raid nested-autoconfigure thing and likewise. Trying to defer RAID sets until all the components show up is actually a bad idea. There's an order-of-configure field that could be automagically...

Contact: tech-kern Mentors: Greg Oster Duration estimate: two months Implement component 'scrubbing' in RAIDframe. RAIDframe (raid(4)) provides various RAID levels to NetBSD, but currently has no facilities for 'scrubbing' (checking) the components for read errors. Milestones: implement a generic scrubbing routine that can be used by all RAID types implement RAID-level-specific code for component scrubbing add an option to raidctl (raidctl(8)) to allow the system to run the scrubbing as required...

tutorials/how to install netbsd on raid1 using raidframe
In this article I will explain, step by step, how to install NetBSD on a RAID-1 root disk. Contents Foreword So, you just got yourself a pair of shiny new SCSI or SATA disks? You care about your data and you think backup is as important as having redundant data? You are disappointed because the netbsd raid1-root guide at 1 looks rather complicated? You want to setup a raid1 mirror during installation? This guide is losely based on the guide above, so check that out as well to get a better understanding...

Contact: tech-kern Duration estimate: 1-2 months NetBSD has a fixed, kernel-wide upper limit on transfer size, called MAXPHYS, which is currently set to 64k on most ports. This is too small to perform well on modern IDE and SCSI hardware; on the other hand some devices can't do more than 64k, and in some cases are even limited to less (the Xen virtual block device for example). Software RAID will also cause requests to be split in multiple smaller requests. This limit should be per-IO-path rather than...

Contact: tech-install Mentors: Martin Husemann Duration estimate: 3 months IMPORTANT: This project was completed by Eugene Lozovoy. You may still contact the people above for details, but please do not submit an application for this project. The goal of this project is to enhance the NetBSD system installer (sysinst) to provide additional support for (in order): partition disks using GPT prepare multiple disks combine multiple partitions to raid/lvm volumes encrypt partitions via cgd other enhancements...

blog/What to do when you run out of (ancient) 50 pin SCSI disks?
Recently on a few mailing lists a discussion about creating a simple turbo-channel USB adapter came up. I have an old Alpha machine with turbo channel and no on-board USB, so considered ordering one - but wanted to know upfront whether that alpha machine still worked. I started with updating the installation on the alpha to -current, and ran out of disk space! No big deal, it still had the original ~1GB disk (RZ26) in it, and a full NetBSD install nowadays needs slightly more. I have plenty of unused...
