For the remainder of 2012 we are running special class rates. Find a Lustre class to attend this year near you.

Class Description for All Lustre Administration Classes

4 Day Course Overview

The goal of this course is to provide practical sysadmin experience with the Lustre file system. In order to accomplish this in a manner consistent with educational best practices, we provide a framework that presents the big picture first and then introduces components one by one, with each lesson built upon the last. This includes both well structured and organized lectures as well as easy-to-follow yet in-depth lab exercises. Topics are first presented from the instructor; students then work through our rigorous examples with the instructor present to answer questions as needed.

Below are the topics covered in this course:

  • Introduction to Lustre
  • Lustre Storage Components
  • Lustre Networking (with Lab)
  • Installing Lustre (Labs cover MGS, MDS, OSS, Co-located MGT/MDT)
  • File Striping Policies (Lab for both Administrative & Client roles)
  • OST Pools (Lab for both Administrative & Client roles)
  • Lustre Quotas (Lab for both Administrative & Client roles)
  • Backing Up and Restoring Lustre (Labs include POSIX ACLs, Striping, OST Pools, Quotas, LVM snapshots)
  • High Availability Lustre (Labs for Lustre Failover & Recovery "deep dive", Heartbeat and Corosync/Pacemaker)
  • Advanced Lustre Networking (Labs for Interface Bonding, Lustre Routers and "Dual Rail" configurations)
  • Troubleshooting Lustre (Labs, limited in scope)
  • Tuning Lustre (Labs, limited in scope)

Note: We are considering adding additional courses, to include:

  • Architecting Lustre Solutions
  • Lustre for End Users
  • Tuning and Troubleshooting Lustre

Please let us know if you would be interested in attending such a course, if it were available.

Whamcloud are providing infrastructure to support the development process and donating management, engineering and testing resources to support the efforts.
