In this sambaXP 2020 recording Martin Schwenke and Amitay Isaacs give their "CTDB Report 2020".  Martin Schwenke is an Open Source Developer at IBM (LinkedIn), Amitay Isaacs also works at IBM as Software Engineer (GitHub). Both are located in Australia and are members of the international Samba team

Abstract

The report focuses on 2 main areas: progress and plans. What is new upstream in CTDB? What do our plans look like compared to those presented in recent years? There is also the intersection of progress and plans: what useful things are sitting in development branches but are not merged?

Progress includes: Clustered Samba testing is now in Samba's test suite and autobuild, CTDB's inter-node TCP transport is now more resilient (with some pain along the way), database vacuuming has been simplified, the recovery lock has been enhanced, code is generally cleaner (largely due to csbuild showing issues) and there have been many improvements in testing.

Plans include: splitting CTDB into multiple daemons (as previously presented), a transport using datagram messaging and simple code for new developers to understand and embrace. Slides (PDF)

In this recording of the sambaXP 2020 Tom Talpey gives the already traditional annual "SMB3 Protocol Update". Talpey (LinkedIn) is an architect at Microsoft, focusing on the SMB protocol.

Abstract

The SMB3 protocol has updated in the past year, with compression in 2019 and further updates in the Windows "20H1" Spring release. We'll review and recap the protocol since the last SambaXP, and also provide a look forward, including an update on recent developments in RDMA to enable "Push Mode" for ultra-low-latency remote access to persistent Storage Class Memory via SMB3 and SMB Direct.
