General OpenAFS Progress

OpenAFS 1.5.75 was released on July 7. It includes various fixes and improvements.

There is the start of a test harness in 1.5.75 and the master git branch. The tests give output in the Test Anything Protocol (TAP), which makes it easy to integrate tests written different languages. All tests will eventually reside in the "tests" folder in git. Please refer to the "tests/README" and "tests/HOWTO" files in the openafs git repository for more information on how to write tests.

As was discussed in the chat rooms and mailing lists, the --enable-fast-restart configure option has been removed on the master branch to deter novice users from using it without understanding the ramifications. This option allows the file server to restart after a crash without salvaging volumes first. This option is dangerous because data corruption may go unnoticed because the volumes might not be salvaged while a good backup is still around. The demand-attach file server offers a better option, which allows for quicker start up than the non-demand-attach server with less chance of data corruption. Only the fast-restart configure option was removed. The fast-restart code will remain in the tree until at least version 2.0. If you still need to enable the fast-restart functionality and understand the consequences, then run configure, add the line "#define FAST_RESTART 1" to src/config/afsconfig.h and compile.

Around the time of the 1.5.75 release, a new development plan was announced. The new plan calls for multiple simultaneously developed branches, which will be released as different versions. The new versions will be as follows:

The AFSLore Wiki has a new location and different software. The new location is, and the wiki was converted from twiki to ikiwiki. ikiwiki allows the wiki content to be stored in git. This allows for content edits to be done through the web or through git.

Case Study - University of Maryland, College Park

In this issue, I would like thank Thomas Payerle from The University of Maryland (College Park) for being profiled in the newsletter. --Jason

Thomas Payerle is an IT Sys Analyst at UMD.

Jason: How many full-time and part-time people are responsible for AFS support and in what capacity?

Thomas: A manager and five full-time staff, however, administering AFS is a fairly small part of their job. Other responsibilities include support of the campus Kerberos infrastructure, three medium-sized high performance computing clusters, and general system support for 300 or so University Solaris and Linux systems.

Jason: How much data do you store in AFS?

Thomas: We have 40TB or so dedicated to AFS storage. About 5TB resides on our SAN and 35TB on direct attached RAID storage. Actual usage is much less.

Jason: Do you use contractors or vendors to augment your workforce? If so, do they use your AFS space?

Thomas: Rarely, but if the need arises and AFS access is required, we provide it.

Jason: How do you use OpenAFS?

Thomas: OpenAFS is integral to the Unix environment that comprises our academic, research, and computing infrastructure. We use it to replicate core OS components and applications running on Linux and Solaris. We also use it to deploy some Microsoft Windows applications. User home directories and web pages reside in AFS, as does the University's central web hosting and WebSphere environments. Access to AFS has traditionally been provided via a native client, which is installed by default on all supported Linux and Solaris machines and by hand on Windows and Macintosh desktops on an as needed basis. More recently, we also have begun providing AFS access via a native web interface (a locally-modified MFILE clone) and via WebDAV.

Jason: How many servers do you have?

Thomas: 10 file servers, 3 DB servers

Jason: Are they in different locations? How far apart are they?

Thomas: Servers reside in three campus locations that are approximately 0.25 miles (0.5 km) apart.

Jason: Do you use any other network storage to supplement AFS, like Dropbox, or Windows shares?

Is AFS the only networked file-system that you use?

If not, what are the others, and how do they compare/contrast?

If applicable, why do you use the other file-systems?

Thomas: Microsoft DFS is the networked file-system of choice for Windows desktops attached to the campus Active Directory infrastructure. CIFS is also used, though predominantly to integrate Windows desktops in departments with Linux infrastructures. Such departments also often use NFS, especially those units who have the need/desire for departmental control. NFS is also often used to provide access to large data sets for researchers with high-speed network connections who don't need the management features of AFS and don't benefit much from its caching performance.

Finally, Lustre is replacing NFS in the HPCC arena due to its high performance

Jason: Is your investment in AFS increasing or decreasing?

Thomas: No change.

AFS Protocol Standardization

Informal drafts that haven't been uploaded to the IETF web site:

Rx Spec:

This draft is in the very early stages. Mike Meffie and Tom Keiser are the current owners of this proposal. A formal specification of Rx is needed as a basis for other IETF proposals.

Discussion on these proposals is welcome and should be done on the AFS3-standardization list at

PTS Alternate Authentication

Status: Third Draft

draft-brashear-afs3-pts-extended-names continues to be available for review. There is still discussion about the technical content and background references.

AFS Callback Extensions

Status: Active - Waiting on RPC refresh

The callback draft is stable. There is a published implementation. My understanding is that it is accepted with the requirement that it be adjusted to use RPC refresh data types, which means AFSFetchStatus64 and the new 100ns time data type. This is regarded as "trivial" but at the same time, the spec can't be standardized as is. It is planned for merge in, IIRC, 1.9/1.10.

--Matt Benjamin


Status: Active

Rxgk is a security layer for AFS which will support strong encryption and authentication through Kerberos v5, GSI and any other GSSAPI security mechanism.

Changes which are considered suitable for the 1.5.x series are in git - look for changes with author A development tree, which will be frequently rebased, is at

Last Update: Jan 9, 2010

AFS3 ACL Rights

Status: Second draft

Last update: January 13, 2010

This draft calls for volume-level restrictions on what users with 'a' administrator rights to a folder may do. For example, you may want to prevent users from granting 'w' write access to 'system:anyuser', which would give anyone in the world with an AFS client write access.

Rx Security Object Providing Cleartext Peer Identity Assertions

Status: Third draft

Last Update: April 17, 2010

I released a new version of the Rx Clear security class I-D the other day. I am hereby soliciting comments on this new version of the draft.

The major changes in this version of the document are:


AFSVol Tag-Length-Value Remote Procedure Call Extensions

Status: Third Draft

Last Update: June 15, 2010

Here is the change log for this revision:

Moving forward, I propose making one change in -03. Namely, I want to split type AFSVOL_TLV_TYPE_UINT64 up into a few types that embed some limited semantic knowledge into the TLV layer. Specifically, I'm thinking of splitting AFSVOL_TLV_TYPE_UINT64 into the following six types:

All six would be backed by afs_uint64 in the AFSVol_TLV_value union. While this change isn't strictly necessary, it's relatively straightforward to implement, and makes the resulting volume TLV data considerably more self-describing.

As always, comments and feedback are invited.


AFS Byte-Range File Locking

Status: Fifth Draft

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

The first draft was submitted on May 5, 2010.


Demand-Attach FileServer (DAFS)

Project Contacts:

The DAFS bug mentioned at the workshop involving restoring fileserver state has been fixed (gerrit 2205). One more DAFS bug involving demand-salvages of on-line volumes has been identified and is being worked on (gerrit 2329). A proposed run-time option is in gerrit 2277 to enable fast-restart-like functionality with DAFS. We're also working on Admin Guide and Quick Start documentation for DAFS, as well as always building DAFS and non-DAFS binaries (instead of having DAFS be a configure-time option). The positional I/O work and threaded salvaging work is postponed until after 1.6 has been branched.


Better Documentation

Project Contacts:

One of the remaining demand-attach binaries has now been documented, leaving only one left to document. There have been some other, more minor improvements to the man page documentation.

The OpenAFS wiki has been relocated from to a new permanent home and temporary URL at, probably soon to get a * DNS name. It is now using ikiwiki, and the eventual plan is to allow people to check out and commit to the underlying Git repository via Gerrit, which is more efficient than using the web editor for significant work.

User-space cache manager

Project Contact:

No update (on hold until 1.6 has branched).


Kerberos v5 and multiple encryption types

Project Contacts:

The next rxk5 "m" base will be 1.5.74. Before dealing with the new "afsconf_PickClientSecObj", I updated rxk5 "xo" (1.4 base). [ The gatekeepers need not care, but rxk5 for 1.4 is more interesting to potential testers, then there's rxosd which has unique crypto. ] Nearly all of my recent work has been on refining patch splitting. I'm up to over 100 distinct patches. The split process can work on m, xo, or in the future rxk5 for rxosd or 1.6 or 1.9 The next snapshot I do will be of "xo". Feedback for those patches will improve what I do next for 1.5.74.


--Marcus Watts

S3 Front-end for AFS

Project Contacts:

We have a new internal snapshot (alpha2) with 90% of the S3 functions. We have also a non-AFS-based simple authentication and some revision primitives, but it lacks some parts like logging or load balancing. We hope to release a preview soon.


Virtual Machine Images

Project Contact:

Update operating system to CentOS 5.5 with two VMware snapshot inside, one is based on openafs second it is based on openafs 1.5.74. I also updated the AFS Perl module to 2.6.2. Link for download:

We also develop a generic "binding" interface with swig for scripting languages, you will find in the next update

Google Summer of Code 2010

OpenAFS received five slots for the 2010 Google Summer of Code.

Unix Support for AppleDouble files (Posix Attributes)

Student Developer: Kelli Ireland <>

Mentor: Derrick Brashear <>


Initial implementation of dot-underscore file parser is being used for testing. Rewrite will be needed before integration.

--Kelli Ireland

Encrypted Storage

Student Developer: Sanket Agarwal <>

Mentor: Simon Wilkinson <>



The AFS protocol offers encryption for data transport from client to server. However, that data is stored on the server in cleartext, where it can potentially be read by the administrators of that server. This poses a real world problem for organizations who wish to outsource the provision of their file storage, whilst keeping their data confidential. This project would augment the existing AFS client to support encrypting data blocks before sending them to the file server.

Apply the kafs project of OpenAFS

Mentor: David Howells <>


We have almost finished the DNS support sub-project. I've been working on adding some features to make it more complete. I have also been working on picking up the pioctl sub-project to be worked on next.

--Wang Lei

Port OpenAFS to NetBSD

Student Developer: Matt Smith <>

Mentor: Matt Benjamin <>


I have finished modifications to the LKM so that it now builds. I'm currently working on learning how to use ddb to debug it as it still crashes when loaded. The next step will be to move on to debugging functionality.

--Matt Smith

An open source version of the Microsoft Safe String Library

Student Developer: Jonas Sundberg <>

Mentor: Jeffrey Altman <>


The basic versions of the functions have been tested on both Linux and Windows and the the tests have been verified against the Microsoft implementation. A draft of the extended functions has also been written. The current focus is implementing tests for the extended functionalities of the extended functions to test the draft implementation and verify the functionality against the Microsoft implementation.
