Dynamic Metadata Management in Ceph File System

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session is about Metadata Management in the Ceph Distributed File System. In Ceph, this is achieved by using a cluster of metadata servers (MDS).
The MDS cluster should be able to maintain file system directory and permission semantics for a variety of workloads like scientific and general purpose workloads. This is brought to life by Dynamic Subtree Partioning: subtrees of the directory hierarchy are assigned to respective MDS dynamically.
Things people will learn out of this session:
- Why we need proper metadata management in distributed storage.
- Some of the existing methods of metadata management and its advantages and drawbacks.
- What is Dynamic Subtree Partitioning? Why do we need it? What makes it better than other metadata management techniques like hashing?
