AFS Byte-Range File Locking

http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-mbenjamin-afs-file-locking/

Status: Expired (Sixth Draft)

Last Update: May 13, 2010

This draft proposes protocol extensions to support byte-range and mandatory locking.

The first draft was submitted on May 5, 2010.

Adding Extended Authentication Names to the Bos Super User list

http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-wilkinson-afs3-bos-identities/

Status: Initial Draft

Last Update: December 7, 2010

This document describes an additional set of RX remote procedure calls which may be used to managed extended authenticated names within the AFS-3 basic overseer service's SuperUser list

Adding a Flexible GetSize RPC Variant to the AFS-3 Volume Service

Status: Third Draft

Last Update: March 11, 2011

http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-deason-afs3-getsizev2/

This document describes a new AFSGetSizeV2 call which would compute the size of an AFS volume dump as generated by the AFSVolDumpV2 call.

Version 01:

This draft leaves time as 32-bit time, though I can still be convinced to change this to 64-bit 100ns time. I'd rather all of AFSVol have some consistent prefix or suffix on the RPC names or something when all of the others get converted, but I can understand the desire to have 64-bit-time GetSize earlier. There's also no 64-bit time draft or standard (yet), and I wanted to move forward discussion on some other points.

This also does not include electronic links to the AFS3-RX or AFS3-VVL references. As discussed on the list, I'd still like to have those, but I wanted to move discussion forward on other points in the meantime. If there is a more permanent home provided for them, I'll add links.

I think those are the only outstanding mentioned changes I intentionally "left out". Here's a summary of the changes from 00 -> 01, which I think covers all other voiced concerns:

-- Andrew Deason

Version 02 includes suggestions from Tom Keiser.

Base Types for Time in AFS-3

Status: Initial Draft

Last Update: March 7, 2011

http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-deason-afs3-type-time/

This document describes a 64-bit time type with 100 nanosecond resolution for future AFS3 protocol use.

AFS-3 Extensible XDR Discriminated Union Primitive Type

Status: Initial Draft

Last Update: March 7, 2011

http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-keiser-afs3-xdr-union/

This document adds special discriminated unions to the XDR encoding format for use in AFS3. This came out of discussions on how to encode IPv6 addresses for AFS3 and transitioned to a more general data type.

Projects

User-space cache manager

Project Contact:

The necessary changes to libuafs and to the build system to accomodate the Perl libuafs bindings have been merged. The bindings themselves are still being worked on, as issues on different platforms have been cropping up.

The Userspace CM project is funded by Sine Nomine Associates.

--Andrew

Better Documentation

Project Contacts:

Dropbox permissions were documented in the fs_setacl man page and the User Guide.

S3 Front-end for AFS

Project Contacts:

The myS3 project replaces the s3afs project.

myS3 is based on Python, and it is in the first development stage (prototype). With this version, you can store and read information without authentication and only a few commands are implemented.

The existing commands are:

In a short time, we will release a more complete implementation with different storage backends (AFS and local disk)

I put the prototype mys3 images on www.beolink.org at http://www.beolink.org/cms/index.php/projects/mys3/

Download: http://www.beolink.org/cms/index.php/projects/mys3/

Virtual Machine Images

Project Contact:

I have updated the VM to 1.4.14. I will upload the image on sourceforge tomorrow.

VM image updated to 1.4.14 with myS3 v0.1 inside.
