Deprecating global compiled package cache

Maya Rosecrance
 

Hi Everyone,
I'm considering removing the global compiled package cache. It was a feature that made a lot of sense in a world before compiled releases where users with multiple directors wanted to only compile on one director then share that artifact with the others. Currently, when the BOSH director searches for a compiled package, it first searches the blobstore for any exact or fuzzy (for floating stemcell lines) compiled package matches before checking the global package cache. My hope is that as more and more BOSH release authors have adopted compiled releases, the need for the global package cache has become minimal to none as most compiled packages have been 'pre-seeded' to the blobstore. 

For users still ingesting source releases, we've since made manual workarounds to avoid the compilation time hit. Namely anyone can export a release and upload that artifact to any number of directors.

Please reach out if you have any use cases that might be broken by this change.

Hi Dan,
Yes, blind review of CFP submissions is possible and we do intend to do blind review this year.  I will update the blog post accordingly; thank you for asking the question.

Dear Friends,
It is that time of Cloud Foundry Summit again where we need your help in establishing the program committee to review CFP submissions.  Given the new format of Summits this year, we will also look to our program chairs to help structure the content in the best way suited for our community.

I've written up a quick post [1] that explains it and hopefully answers all your questions (if there are more questions, please don't hesitate to ask here or on in #summit or #cff-forum channels on slack).

Get nominating today [2]!  The nominations close on Feb 18, 11:59PM US PST.

Re: New lead for Community (CAB) meetings

This is wonderful news!
 
Thanks Swarna for organizing the search and finding a leader.
 
And super thanks to Troy for stepping up. I am sure you will do fantastically well.
 
I am at your service. Best,

Hi Friends,
Please join me in welcoming @Troy Topnik as the Cloud Foundry Community Advisory Board (CAB) Meeting host.  Please also join me in thanking Dr. Max for his gracious, thoughtful, and inspiring leadership through these years in not establishing (the call and more importantly, the momentum) and leading CAB meetings to such great success.  We will sorely miss him as the host but we will continue to see him as a participant.
 
A huge thank you to @Neil MacDougall as well, for offering to support Troy as and when needed.
 
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the awesome folks at Stark & Wayne (especially Ashley!) for diligently hosting this meeting on their zoom bridge and recording every meeting.  The recordings[1] are so much more helpful for those who cannot join these meetings live.  Thank you, Ashley and the S&W crew, for continuing to do this.
 
I would also like to thank the awesome folks at Altoros for diligently writing a summary of each call on their website[2].  These are extremely useful for those who are unable to either attend live or watch the recording.  Thank you, Team Altoros.
 
Looking forward to seeing you all in the next CAB meeting on Wednesday, February 19th at 11AM US Eastern. 
(You can add this and other regular community meetings to your own calendar from the community calendar posted here[3])
 
Cheers,
Swarna.

Dear CF Community,
Max (popularly known as "Dr. Max", cc'd here) has been running Cloud Foundry Community Advisory Board (CAB) meetings for the past 4-ish years now.  As he mentioned during the recent calls, 2020 is a great opportunity for any of you in the community to nominate yourself (or someone you know is interested) to take the baton from Max.  Max will continue being an active member of our community; we just think that other members may want to take an opportunity to step up and make their mark in our community.  
 
The responsibilities will be to host 
  • the monthly CAB calls by sourcing interesting topics/demos for the meetings
  • in-person CAB meetings at Cloud Foundry Summits (we, from the Foundation, can help you with that)
If you are unsure of the responsibilities or if you would like to talk to Max directly, please feel free to reach out to him.
 
Please send us your nominations no later than February 5th.

We intend to have all component jobs to use, or have the option to use, the same human-readable timestamp format for its logs (RFC3339) so that it’s easier for a human to skim logs to find entries for a given time and so that less toil is required to correlate log entries generated by different sub-components.

Hi Everyone,

As Abby shared in the update from “Desk of the Executive Director” here, Cloud Foundry Summits in 2020 will be slightly different.

 

Cloud Foundry Summits in 2020 will be collocated with Open Source Summit in North America (Austin, TX in June) and Europe (Dublin, Ireland in October) and will be hosted as a one-day event at both of these locations.  The Summits will have breakout sessions, Diversity Luncheon, User Day, and Contributor Summit.  Please stay tuned for additional details (CFP, registration, sponsorship, unconference, etc.).

 

If your organization is a Cloud Foundry Foundation member, you can join the AMA call tomorrow (Dec 17 at 8AM US Pacific; see zoom info in Abby’s email below) and get any/all of your Summit-related question answered.  If you would like to submit a question prior to the call, please do so here.  We will make sure your question is answered.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via email or slack.

Foundation updates from Executive Director Abby Kearns

We’re ending one chapter and beginning another soon: 2020 is not just a new year but a new decade. The Foundation will be closed December 23rd through January 5th, so please reach out to me or our team if you need anything beforehand. I wish you the most pleasant holiday season.

Cloud Foundry Events in 2020
In 2020, we will be revamping our events strategy to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our community. We are purposely limiting the size and scope of our Summits to better serve contributors and end users with content tailored to their specific needs. 

Cloud Foundry Summits will be one-day events co-located with Open Source Summits in North America and Europe to provide visibility and engagement with broader open source communities, including the larger Linux universe. These more intimate events will enable our committed community of contributors and end users to get together to foster collaboration, share best practices, and have lively discussions.

In addition to Summits, we will rely on our strong member and end user community to host Cloud Foundry Days around the world. We encourage Cloud Foundry Day organizers to reach out to enterprise developers who are not yet Cloud Foundry users and facilitate more opportunities for connection within our global community. We will be supporting this effort by rolling out an updated CF Days Kit in early 2020 to your marketing teams.

Members Only!

  • Ask Me Anything: Our last AMA of 2019 is tomorrow, Tuesday, December 17th at 8:00 AM PST. Join my Zoom to discuss what the future holds for Cloud Foundry.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via email or slack.

Foundation updates from Executive Director Abby Kearns

We’re ending one chapter and beginning another soon: 2020 is not just a new year but a new decade. The Foundation will be closed December 23rd through January 5th, so please reach out to me or our team if you need anything beforehand. I wish you the most pleasant holiday season.

Cloud Foundry Events in 2020
In 2020, we will be revamping our events strategy to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our community. We are purposely limiting the size and scope of our Summits to better serve contributors and end users with content tailored to their specific needs. 

Cloud Foundry Summits will be one-day events co-located with Open Source Summits in North America and Europe to provide visibility and engagement with broader open source communities, including the larger Linux universe. These more intimate events will enable our committed community of contributors and end users to get together to foster collaboration, share best practices, and have lively discussions.

In addition to Summits, we will rely on our strong member and end user community to host Cloud Foundry Days around the world. We encourage Cloud Foundry Day organizers to reach out to enterprise developers who are not yet Cloud Foundry users and facilitate more opportunities for connection within our global community. We will be supporting this effort by rolling out an updated CF Days Kit in early 2020 to your marketing teams.

Members Only!

  • Ask Me Anything: Our last AMA of 2019 is tomorrow, Tuesday, December 17th at 8:00 AM PST. Join my Zoom to discuss what the future holds for Cloud Foundry.

CF CAB 2019 Survey

Michael Maximilien <maxim@...>
 

Hi, all,
 
Please spare 5 minutes (might be even less) to take this 4 questions survey to help shape Cloud Foundry and the Community Advisory Board (CAB) calls and organization in 2020.
 
 
 
I plan to close this on January 14th and present the results at the January 15th CAB call.
 
Thanks for your time. Best,

Upcoming changes to bosh-linux-stemcell-builder

Aakash Shah <ashah@...>
 

Hey all,
In an effort to have the bosh-linux-stemcell-builder be more maintainable for the bosh team, we are hoping to remove build targets not explicitly maintained by the bosh team. These include the following:

* OpenSuse
* PhotonOS
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
* CentOS
* Ubuntu Trusty
* PowerPC

The work of removing support for these targets is currently happening on "wip/reduce-build-targets", with the goal of bringing it into the "master" branch. This only impacts forward development, and should not impact past branches. For any consumers of the above build targets, we'd love to hear from you in the #bosh-core-dev channel in Cloud Foundry slack.

We will continue cutting releases for ubuntu-xenial lines and centos 3763.x, per our standard support policy.

Context:
Feature work has been difficult on the bosh-linux-stemcell-builder repository as it's housed so much logic. Maintaining compatibility across all of the build targets has made stages (written in bash) very complicated. As we explore making bigger improvements to the builder, we're looking to lessen the builder's responsibility

Re: Resurrecting VMs with local volumes

Benjamin Gandon
 

Hi Prajakta,

Root disk in BOSH semantics are typically ephemeral storage (as well as the extra ephemeral storage that can be mounted on /var/vcap/data), as opposed to the persistent storage that can be mounted on /var/vcap/store.

If your underlying IaaS infrastructure (you didn’t mention which one it is) is supporting persistent storage backed by local volumes, then check your BOSH CPI documentation to verify if this feature is supported.

You can find more information at https://bosh.io/docs/persistent-disks/

Best,

Hello Bosh Team,
 
I have a question about an issue we are running into when deploying our application on bosh VMs.
 
This application needs to use local volumes for performance reasons and all volumes including the “root disk” are mounted on local disks.
We’re able run the application successfully.
However, when a VM does down (or we delete it to check DR), the bosh resurrector tries to bring it back up but this fails, because it is not able to mount back the local drives correctly.
 
Is VM resurrection is expected to work for VMs with local volumes, on bosh?
Is that supported? Is there a way to get this to work?
 
-Thanks,
Prajakta
