    Subject2007 Linux Storage & Filesystem Workshop

    The submission date for the Linux Storage and Filesystem Workshop is
    coming up quickly, and I'd encourage folks who are interested to submit
    a 2-3 paragraph position statement.

    The Linux Storage and Filesystem Workshop is a small, tightly focused,
    by-invitation workshop. It is intended to bring together developers and
    researchers interested in implementing improvements in the Linux
    filesystem and storage subsystems that can find their way into the
    mainline kernel and into Linux distributions in the 2--3-year
    timeframe. The workshop will be two days, the second day overlapping
    with FAST '07 tutorials. The workshop will be separated into storage and
    filesystem tracks, with a combined plenary session.

    Topics and Submissions

    Researchers and developers who are interested in attending should submit
    a 2--3-paragraph position statement that describes the topic or topics
    they would like to discuss during the workshop, and whether such a topic
    would suit the filesystem track, the storage track, or the plenary
    session. Examples of topics of interest include:

    * New trends in storage technologies likely to impact Linux in the
    next 3--5 years
    * More realistic methods of measuring filesystem and storage performance
    * Proposed improvements to Linux filesystems, including, in particular:
    o Handling of storage errors
    o Filesystem repair techniques
    o Scaling to very large (terabyte) filesystems
    * Progress reports on implementation of features discussed at the
    Portland Filesystem Summit
    * Changes to the interface between the operating system and storage devices
    * Proposed improvements to existing Linux storage subsystems,
    particularly with an emphasis on:
    o Refactoring common code out of storage subsystems and into
    the block layer
    o Better robustness and error recovery
    o Barrier implementations in the face of TCQ
    o Making use of storage capabilities (such as block guard or
    non-power-of-2 block sizes) for novel filesystem and
    application features
    * Progress reports on implementation of features discussed at the
    Vancouver Storage Summit
    * Userspace tools for managing storage systems (including better
    presentation to the user via sysfs)
    * Storage futures, including:
    o New transports
    o Changes to existing standards for new storage features
    o SAS/SATA convergence
    o Do we yet have a use for Object-Based Storage Devices (OSD)?
