IETF, ZFS and DTrace

What have I been up to?

I recently traveled to beautiful Vancouver for the 64th IETF. There, Lisa and I attended many meetings, most notably the NFSv4 working group meeting, and presented our recent Internet Draft.

The Internet Draft concerns NFSv4 ACLs. It attempts to clear up ambiguities in the NFSv4 spec, RFC3530. It also proposes a way for ACLs and UNIX-style modes to live together in harmony. Hopefully, it will end up as one or more RFCs, and NFSv4 clients and servers can have a truly useful ACL model.

Meanwhile, as has been mentioned in many other places, ZFS has been released. Check out blog entries from Lisa and Mark on how ACLs work in ZFS.

I also gave a presentation on DTrace at a joint meeting of the Front Range OpenSolaris User Group (FROSUG) and the Front Range Unix User Group (FRUUG).

Why was I, a humble NFS engineer, giving a presentation on DTrace? Well, for one thing, I use DTrace quite a bit. But I'll be blogging more about DTrace and NFS a bit later.
