Subject: [Twg] OpenSFS TWG call 3/29/2012

We have 4 more weeks before LUG.  On tomorrow's  call, I would like to start creating a priority list of requirements to guide the next development cycle for discussion at our F2F meeting on 4/25 in Austin.

I've summarized the current feature discussion into the following requirements:

      - improve single client performance
      - improve storage pool management
                to address :        OST rebalancing
                                                dynamic layout
                                                 async mirroring, etc
      - dynamic LNET configuration
      - extend POSIX for Lustre access patterns
                 to address :       file sets
                                                scalable opens
      - reduce Lustre's dependence on timeouts
                  to address :      health networks

We need to create statements around these requirements for the OpenSFS board.

Are there other features or requirements to discuss?   For example, how do we resolve the discussion about the Lustre client?
