Version 2.12.3
--------------

*(Released Wed, 29 Apr 2015)*

- Fixed Issue #1019: upgrade from 2.6.2 to 2.12 fails. cfgupgrade
  doesn't migrate the config.data file properly
- Fixed Issue 1023: Master master-capable option bug
- Fixed Issue 1068: gnt-network info outputs wrong external reservations
- Fixed Issue 1070: Upgrade of Ganeti 2.5.2 to 2.12.0 fails due to
  missing UUIDs for disks
- Fixed Issue 1073: ssconf_hvparams_* not distributed with ssconf

Inherited from the 2.11 branch:

- Fixed Issue 1032: Renew-crypto --new-node-certificates sometimes does not
  complete.
  The operation 'gnt-cluster renew-crypto --new-node-certificates' is
  now more robust against intermitten reachability errors. Nodes that
  are temporarily not reachable, are contacted with several retries.
  Nodes which are marked as offline are omitted right away.

Inherited from the 2.10 branch:

- Fixed Issue 1057: master-failover succeeds, but IP remains assigned to
  old master
- Fixed Issue 1058: Python's os.minor() does not support devices with
  high minor numbers
- Fixed Issue 1059: Luxid fails if DNS returns an IPv6 address that does
  not reverse resolve

Known issues
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pending since 2.12.2:

- GHC 7.8 introduced some incompatible changes, so currently Ganeti
  2.12. doesn't compile on GHC 7.8
- Under certain conditions instance doesn't get unpaused after live
  migration (issue #1050)
- GlusterFS support breaks at upgrade to 2.12 - switches back to
  shared-file (issue #1030)

Incompatible/important changes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Petr Pudlak committed
130 131
- Ganeti is now distributed under the 2-clause BSD license.
  See the COPYING file.
132 133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151
- Do not use debug mode in production. Certain daemons will issue warnings
  when launched in debug mode. Some debug logging violates some of the new
  invariants in the system (see "New features"). The logging has been kept as
  it aids diagnostics and development.

New features
~~~~~~~~~~~~

- OS install script parameters now come in public, private and secret
  varieties:

  - Public parameters are like all other parameters in Ganeti.
  - Ganeti will not log private and secret parameters, *unless* it is running
    in debug mode.
  - Ganeti will not save secret parameters to configuration. Secret parameters
    must be supplied every time you install, or reinstall, an instance.
  - Attempting to override public parameters with private or secret parameters
    results in an error. Similarly, you may not use secret parameters to
    override private parameters.

152 153
- The move-instance tool can now attempt to allocate an instance by using
  opportunistic locking when an iallocator is used.
154 155 156
- The build system creates sample systemd unit files, available under
  doc/examples/systemd. These unit files allow systemd to natively
  manage and supervise all Ganeti processes.

157 158
- Different types of compression can be applied during instance moves, including
  user-specified ones.
159 160 161 162
- Ganeti jobs now run as separate processes. The jobs are coordinated by
  a new daemon "WConfd" that manages cluster's configuration and locks
  for individual jobs. A consequence is that more jobs can run in parallel;
  the number is run-time configurable, see "New features" entry
163 164 165 166 167
  of 2.11.0. To avoid luxid being overloaded with tracking running jobs, it
  backs of and only occasionally, in a sequential way, checks if jobs have
  finished and schedules new ones. In this way, luxid keeps responsive under
  high cluster load. The limit as when to start backing of is also run-time
  configurable.
168 169 170 171
- The metadata daemon is now optionally available, as part of the
  partial implementation of the OS-installs design. It allows pass
  information to OS install scripts or to instances.
  It is also possible to run Ganeti without the daemon, if desired.

172 173
- Detection of user shutdown of instances has been implemented for Xen
  as well.
174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181

New dependencies
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- The KVM CPU pinning no longer uses the affinity python package, but psutil
  instead. The package is still optional and needed only if the feature is to
  be used.

Known issues
~~~~~~~~~~~~

- *Wrong UDP checksums in DHCP network packets:*
  If an instance communicates with the metadata daemon and uses DHCP to
  obtain its IP address on the provided virtual network interface,
  it can happen that UDP packets have a wrong checksum, due to
  a bug in virtio. See for example https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/930962

  Ganeti works around this bug by disabling the UDP checksums on the way
  from a host to instances (only on the special metadata communication
  network interface) using the ethtool command. Therefore if using
  the metadata daemon the host nodes should have this tool available.

- The metadata daemon is run as root in the split-user mode, to be able
  to bind to port 80.
  This should be improved in future versions, see issue #949.

Since 2.12.0 rc2
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The following issues have been fixed:

- Fixed passing additional parameters to RecreateInstanceDisks over
  RAPI.
- Fixed the permissions of WConfd when running in the split-user mode.
  As WConfd takes over the previous master daemon to manage the
  configuration, it currently runs under the masterd user.
- Fixed the permissions of the metadata daemon  wn running in the
  split-user mode (see Known issues).
- Watcher now properly adds a reason trail entry when initiating disk
  checks.
- Fixed removing KVM parameters introduced in 2.12 when downgrading a
  cluster to 2.11: "migration_caps", "disk_aio" and "virtio_net_queues".
228
- Improved retrying of RPC calls that fail due to network errors.

Version 2.11.5
--------------

*(Released Thu, 7 Aug 2014)*

Inherited from the 2.10 branch:

Important security release. In 2.10.0, the
'gnt-cluster upgrade' command was introduced. Before
performing an upgrade, the configuration directory of
the cluster is backed up. Unfortunately, the archive was
written with permissions that make it possible for
non-privileged users to read the archive and thus have
access to cluster and RAPI keys. After this release,
the archive will be created with privileged access only.

We strongly advise you to restrict the permissions of
previously created archives. The archives are found in
/var/lib/ganeti*.tar (unless otherwise configured with
--localstatedir or --with-backup-dir).

If you suspect that non-privileged users have accessed
your archives already, we advise you to renew the
cluster's crypto keys using 'gnt-cluster renew-crypto'
and to reset the RAPI credentials by editing
/var/lib/ganeti/rapi_users (respectively under a
different path if configured differently with
--localstatedir).

Other changes included in this release:

- Fix handling of Xen instance states.
- Fix NIC configuration with absent NIC VLAN
- Adapt relative path expansion in PATH to new environment
- Exclude archived jobs from configuration backups
- Fix RAPI for split query setup
- Allow disk hot-remove even with chroot or SM

Inherited from the 2.9 branch:

- Make htools tolerate missing 'spfree' on luxi

Version 2.11.2
--------------

*(Released Fri, 13 Jun 2014)*

- Improvements to KVM wrt to the kvmd and instance shutdown behavior.
  WARNING: In contrast to our standard policy, this bug fix update
  introduces new parameters to the configuration. This means in
  particular that after an upgrade from 2.11.0 or 2.11.1, 'cfgupgrade'
  needs to be run, either manually or explicitly by running
  'gnt-cluster upgrade --to 2.11.2' (which requires that they
429
  had configured the cluster with --enable-versionfull).
430 431 432 433 434 435 436 437 438 439 440 441 442 443 444
  This also means, that it is not easily possible to downgrade from
  2.11.2 to 2.11.1 or 2.11.0. The only way is to go back to 2.10 and
  back.

Inherited from the 2.10 branch:

- Check for SSL encoding inconsistencies
- Check drbd helper only in VM capable nodes
- Improvements in statistics utils

Inherited from the 2.9 branch:

- check-man-warnings: use C.UTF-8 and set LC_ALL

494 495 496 497 498 499 500 501
- ``gnt-node list`` no longer shows disk space information for shared file
  disk templates because it is not a node attribute. (For example, if you have
  both the file and shared file disk templates enabled, ``gnt-node list`` now
  only shows information about the file disk template.)
- The shared file disk template is now in the new 'sharedfile' storage type.
  As a result, ``gnt-node list-storage -t file`` now only shows information
  about the file disk template and you may use ``gnt-node list-storage -t
  sharedfile`` to query storage information for the shared file disk template.
502 503 504 505 506
- Over luxi, syntactially incorrect queries are now rejected as a whole;
  before, a 'SumbmitManyJobs' request was partially executed, if the outer
  structure of the request was syntactically correct. As the luxi protocol
  is internal (external applications are expected to use RAPI), the impact
  of this incompatible change should be limited.
507 508 509
- Queries for nodes, instances, groups, backups and networks are now
  exclusively done via the luxi daemon. Legacy python code was removed,
  as well as the --enable-split-queries configuration option.
510 511
- Orphan volumes errors are demoted to warnings and no longer affect the exit
  code of ``gnt-cluster verify``.
512 513 514 515 516
- RPC security got enhanced by using different client SSL certificates
  for each node. In this context 'gnt-cluster renew-crypto' got a new
  option '--renew-node-certificates', which renews the client
  certificates of all nodes. After a cluster upgrade from pre-2.11, run
  this to create client certificates and activate this feature.

- Instance moves, backups and imports can now use compression to transfer the

- Node groups can be configured to use an SSH port different than the
  default 22.

- Added experimental support for Gluster distributed file storage as the
  ``gluster`` disk template under the new ``sharedfile`` storage type through
  automatic management of per-node FUSE mount points. You can configure the
  mount point location at ``gnt-cluster init`` time by using the new
  ``--gluster-storage-dir`` switch.
530 531
- Job scheduling is now handled by luxid, and the maximal number of jobs running
  in parallel is a run-time parameter of the cluster.

Version 2.10.7
--------------

*(Released Thu, 7 Aug 2014)*

Important security release. In 2.10.0, the
'gnt-cluster upgrade' command was introduced. Before
performing an upgrade, the configuration directory of
the cluster is backed up. Unfortunately, the archive was
written with permissions that make it possible for
non-privileged users to read the archive and thus have
access to cluster and RAPI keys. After this release,
the archive will be created with privileged access only.

We strongly advise you to restrict the permissions of
previously created archives. The archives are found in
/var/lib/ganeti*.tar (unless otherwise configured with
--localstatedir or --with-backup-dir).

If you suspect that non-privileged users have accessed
your archives already, we advise you to renew the
cluster's crypto keys using 'gnt-cluster renew-crypto'
and to reset the RAPI credentials by editing
/var/lib/ganeti/rapi_users (respectively under a
different path if configured differently with
--localstatedir).

Other changes included in this release:

- Fix handling of Xen instance states.
- Fix NIC configuration with absent NIC VLAN
- Adapt relative path expansion in PATH to new environment
- Exclude archived jobs from configuration backups
- Fix RAPI for split query setup
- Allow disk hot-remove even with chroot or SM

Inherited from the 2.9 branch:

- Make htools tolerate missing 'spfree' on luxi

Version 2.10.5
--------------

*(Released Mon, 2 Jun 2014)*

- Two new options have been added to gnt-group evacuate.
  The 'sequential' option forces all the evacuation steps to
  be carried out sequentially, thus avoiding congestion on a
  slow link between node groups. The 'force-failover' option
  disallows migrations and forces failovers to be used instead.
  In this way evacuation to a group with vastly differnet
  hypervisor is possible.
- In tiered allocation, when looking for ways on how to shrink
  an instance, the canoncial path is tried first, i.e., in each
  step reduce on the resource most placements are blocked on. Only
  if no smaller fitting instance can be found shrinking a single
  resource till fit is tried.
- For finding the placement of an instance, the duplicate computations
  in the computation of the various cluster scores are computed only
  once. This significantly improves the performance of hspace for DRBD
  on large clusters; for other clusters, a slight performance decrease
  might occur. Moreover, due to the changed order, floating point
  number inaccuracies accumulate differently, thus resulting in different
  cluster scores. It has been verified that the effect of these different
  roundings is less than 1e-12.
- network queries fixed with respect to instances
- relax too strict prerequisite in LUClusterSetParams for DRBD helpers
- VArious improvements to QA and build-time tests

Incompatible/important changes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Adding disks with 'gnt-instance modify' now waits for the disks to sync per
  default. Specify --no-wait-for-sync to override this behavior.
814 815
- The Ganeti python code now adheres to a private-module layout. In particular,
  the module 'ganeti' is no longer in the python search path.
816 817
- On instance allocation, the iallocator now considers non-LVM storage
  properly. In particular, actual file storage space information is used
818 819 820
  when allocating space for a file/sharedfile instance.
- When disabling disk templates cluster-wide, the cluster now first
  checks whether there are instances still using those templates.
821 822
- 'gnt-node list-storage' now also reports storage information about
  file-based storage types.
823 824
- In case of non drbd instances, export \*_SECONDARY environment variables
  as empty strings (and not "None") during 'instance-migrate' related hooks.
825

826 827
New features
~~~~~~~~~~~~
828

829 830
- KVM hypervisors can now access RBD storage directly without having to
  go through a block device.
831 832
- A new command 'gnt-cluster upgrade' was added that automates the upgrade
  procedure between two Ganeti versions that are both 2.10 or higher.
833 834 835
- The move-instance command can now change disk templates when moving
  instances, and does not require any node placement options to be
  specified if the destination cluster has a default iallocator.
836
- Users can now change the soundhw and cpuid settings for XEN hypervisors.
837 838 839
- Hail and hbal now have the (optional) capability of accessing average CPU
  load information through the monitoring deamon, and to use it to dynamically
  adapt the allocation of instances.
840 841 842 843 844 845 846 847
- Hotplug support. Introduce new option '--hotplug' to ``gnt-instance modify``
  so that disk and NIC modifications take effect without the need of actual
  reboot. There are a couple of constrains currently for this feature:

   - only KVM hypervisor (versions >= 1.0) supports it,
   - one can not (yet) hotplug a disk using userspace access mode for RBD
   - in case of a downgrade instances should suffer a reboot in order to
     be migratable (due to core change of runtime files)
848
   - ``python-fdsend`` is required for NIC hotplugging.
849

850 851 852
Misc changes
~~~~~~~~~~~~

853 854
- A new test framework for logical units was introduced and the test
  coverage for logical units was improved significantly.
855 856 857
- Opcodes are entirely generated from Haskell using the tool 'hs2py' and
  the module 'src/Ganeti/OpCodes.hs'.
- Constants are also generated from Haskell using the tool
858
  'hs2py-constants' and the module 'src/Ganeti/Constants.hs', with the
859 860 861 862 863
  exception of socket related constants, which require changing the
  cluster configuration file, and HVS related constants, because they
  are part of a port of instance queries to Haskell.  As a result, these
  changes will be part of the next release of Ganeti.

864 865 866 867 868 869 870 871 872
New dependencies
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The following new dependencies have been added/updated.

Python

- The version requirements for ``python-mock`` have increased to at least
  version 1.0.1. It is still used for testing only.
873 874
- ``python-fdsend`` (https://gitorious.org/python-fdsend) is optional
  but required for KVM NIC hotplugging to work.

Incompatible/important changes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1118 1119 1120 1121
- hroller now also plans for capacity to move non-redundant instances off
  any node to be rebooted; the old behavior of completely ignoring any
  non-redundant instances can be restored by adding the --ignore-non-redundant
  option.
1122 1123
- The cluster option '--no-lvm-storage' was removed in favor of the new option
  '--enabled-disk-templates'.
1124 1125 1126
- On instance creation, disk templates no longer need to be specified
  with '-t'. The default disk template will be taken from the list of
  enabled disk templates.
1127 1128
- The monitoring daemon is now running as root, in order to be able to collect
  information only available to root (such as the state of Xen instances).
1129 1130 1131
- The ConfD client is now IPv6 compatible.
- File and shared file storage is no longer dis/enabled at configure time,
  but using the option '--enabled-disk-templates' at cluster initialization and
1132
  modification.
1133 1134 1135 1136
- The default directories for file and shared file storage are not anymore
  specified at configure time, but taken from the cluster's configuration.
  They can be set at cluster initialization and modification with
  '--file-storage-dir' and '--shared-file-storage-dir'.
1137
- Cluster verification now includes stricter checks regarding the
1138 1139 1140
  default file and shared file storage directories. It now checks that
  the directories are explicitely allowed in the 'file-storage-paths' file and
  that the directories exist on all nodes.
1141 1142 1143 1144 1145
- The list of allowed disk templates in the instance policy and the list
  of cluster-wide enabled disk templates is now checked for consistency
  on cluster or group modification. On cluster initialization, the ipolicy
  disk templates are ensured to be a subset of the cluster-wide enabled
  disk templates.

New features
~~~~~~~~~~~~

- DRBD 8.4 support. Depending on the installed DRBD version, Ganeti now uses
  the correct command syntax. It is possible to use different DRBD versions
  on different nodes as long as they are compatible to each other. This
  enables rolling upgrades of DRBD with no downtime. As permanent operation
  of different DRBD versions within a node group is discouraged,
  ``gnt-cluster verify`` will emit a warning if it detects such a situation.
- New "inst-status-xen" data collector for the monitoring daemon, providing
  information about the state of the xen instances on the nodes.
- New "lv" data collector for the monitoring daemon, collecting data about the
  logical volumes on the nodes, and pairing them with the name of the instances
  they belong to.
- New "diskstats" data collector, collecting the data from /proc/diskstats and
  presenting them over the monitoring daemon interface.
- The ConfD client is now IPv6 compatible.

New dependencies
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The following new dependencies have been added.

Python

- ``python-mock`` (http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/mock/) is now a required
  for the unit tests (and only used for testing).

1174
Haskell
1175

1176 1177 1178

Incompatible/important changes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Instance policy can contain multiple instance specs, as described in
  the “Constrained instance sizes” section of :doc:`Partitioned Ganeti
  <design-partitioned>`. As a consequence, it's not possible to partially change
  or override instance specs. Bounding specs (min and max) can be specified as a
  whole using the new option ``--ipolicy-bounds-specs``, while standard
  specs use the new option ``--ipolicy-std-specs``.
- The output of the info command of gnt-cluster, gnt-group, gnt-node,
  gnt-instance is a valid YAML object.
- hail now honors network restrictions when allocating nodes. This led to an
  update of the IAllocator protocol. See the IAllocator documentation for
  details.
1319 1320 1321
- confd now only answers static configuration request over the network. luxid
  was extracted, listens on the local LUXI socket and responds to live queries.
  This allows finer grained permissions if using separate users.

New features
~~~~~~~~~~~~

1326 1327 1328
- The :doc:`Remote API <rapi>` daemon now supports a command line flag
  to always require authentication, ``--require-authentication``. It can
  be specified in ``$sysconfdir/default/ganeti``.
1329 1330 1331 1332 1333 1334 1335 1336 1337
- A new cluster attribute 'enabled_disk_templates' is introduced. It will
  be used to manage the disk templates to be used by instances in the cluster.
  Initially, it will be set to a list that includes plain, drbd, if they were
  enabled by specifying a volume group name, and file and sharedfile, if those
  were enabled at configure time. Additionally, it will include all disk
  templates that are currently used by instances. The order of disk templates
  will be based on Ganeti's history of supporting them. In the future, the
  first entry of the list will be used as a default disk template on instance
  creation.
1338 1339
- ``cfgupgrade`` now supports a ``--downgrade`` option to bring the
  configuration back to the previous stable version.

- Disk templates in group ipolicy can be restored to the default value.
- Initial support for diskless instances and virtual clusters in QA.
- More QA and unit tests for instance policies.
- Every opcode now contains a reason trail (visible through ``gnt-job info``)
  describing why the opcode itself was executed.
- The monitoring daemon is now available. It allows users to query the cluster
  for obtaining information about the status of the system. The daemon is only
  responsible for providing the information over the network: the actual data
  gathering is performed by data collectors (currently, only the DRBD status
  collector is available).
- In order to help developers work on Ganeti, a new script
  (``devel/build_chroot``) is provided, for building a chroot that contains all
  the required development libraries and tools for compiling Ganeti on a Debian
  Squeeze system.
- A new tool, ``harep``, for performing self-repair and recreation of instances
  in Ganeti has been added.
- Split queries are enabled for tags, network, exports, cluster info, groups,
  jobs, nodes.
- New command ``show-ispecs-cmd`` for ``gnt-cluster`` and ``gnt-group``.
  It prints the command line to set the current policies, to ease
  changing them.
1361 1362 1363 1364 1365 1366
- Add the ``vnet_hdr`` HV parameter for KVM, to control whether the tap
  devices for KVM virtio-net interfaces will get created with VNET_HDR
  (IFF_VNET_HDR) support. If set to false, it disables offloading on the
  virtio-net interfaces, which prevents host kernel tainting and log
  flooding, when dealing with broken or malicious virtio-net drivers.
  It's set to true by default.
1367 1368
- Instance failover now supports a ``--cleanup`` parameter for fixing previous
  failures.
1369 1370
- Support 'viridian' parameter in Xen HVM
- Support DSA SSH keys in bootstrap
1371 1372 1373 1374 1375 1376 1377 1378 1379
- To simplify the work of packaging frameworks that want to add the needed users
  and groups in a split-user setup themselves, at build time three files in
  ``doc/users`` will be generated. The ``groups`` files contains, one per line,
  the groups to be generated, the ``users`` file contains, one per line, the
  users to be generated, optionally followed by their primary group, where
  important. The ``groupmemberships`` file contains, one per line, additional
  user-group membership relations that need to be established. The syntax of
  these files will remain stable in all future versions.

- Instance policies for disk size were documented to be on a per-disk
  basis, but hail applied them to the sum of all disks. This has been
  fixed.
- ``hbal`` will now exit with status 0 if, during job execution over
  LUXI, early exit has been requested and all jobs are successful;
  before, exit status 1 was used, which cannot be differentiated from
  "job error" case
- Compatibility with newer versions of rbd has been fixed
1511 1512 1513 1514
- ``gnt-instance batch-create`` has been changed to use the bulk create
  opcode from Ganeti. This lead to incompatible changes in the format of
  the JSON file. It's now not a custom dict anymore but a dict
  compatible with the ``OpInstanceCreate`` opcode.
1515 1516 1517 1518
- Parent directories for file storage need to be listed in
  ``$sysconfdir/ganeti/file-storage-paths`` now. ``cfgupgrade`` will
  write the file automatically based on old configuration values, but it
  can not distribute it across all nodes and the file contents should be
1519 1520 1521 1522 1523 1524 1525
  verified. Use ``gnt-cluster copyfile
  $sysconfdir/ganeti/file-storage-paths`` once the cluster has been
  upgraded. The reason for requiring this list of paths now is that
  before it would have been possible to inject new paths via RPC,
  allowing files to be created in arbitrary locations. The RPC protocol
  is protected using SSL/X.509 certificates, but as a design principle
  Ganeti does not permit arbitrary paths to be passed.
1526
- The parsing of the variants file for OSes (see
1527
  :manpage:`ganeti-os-interface(7)`) has been slightly changed: now empty
1528 1529 1530 1531 1532 1533 1534
  lines and comment lines (starting with ``#``) are ignored for better
  readability.
- The ``setup-ssh`` tool added in Ganeti 2.2 has been replaced and is no
  longer available. ``gnt-node add`` now invokes a new tool on the
  destination node, named ``prepare-node-join``, to configure the SSH
  daemon. Paramiko is no longer necessary to configure nodes' SSH
  daemons via ``gnt-node add``.

- Draining (``gnt-cluster queue drain``) and un-draining the job queue
  (``gnt-cluster queue undrain``) now affects all nodes in a cluster and
  the flag is not reset after a master failover.
- Python 2.4 has *not* been tested with this release. Using 2.6 or above
  is recommended. 2.6 will be mandatory from the 2.8 series.


New features
~~~~~~~~~~~~

- New network management functionality to support automatic allocation
  of IP addresses and managing of network parameters. See
  :manpage:`gnt-network(8)` for more details.
- New external storage backend, to allow managing arbitrary storage
  systems external to the cluster. See
  :manpage:`ganeti-extstorage-interface(7)`.
- New ``exclusive-storage`` node parameter added, restricted to
  nodegroup level. When it's set to true, physical disks are assigned in
  an exclusive fashion to instances, as documented in :doc:`Partitioned
  Ganeti <design-partitioned>`.  Currently, only instances using the
  ``plain`` disk template are supported.
- The KVM hypervisor has been updated with many new hypervisor
  parameters, including a generic one for passing arbitrary command line

  values. See a complete list in :manpage:`gnt-instance(8)`. It is now
  compatible up to qemu 1.4.

- A new tool, called ``mon-collector``, is the stand-alone executor of
  the data collectors for a monitoring system. As of this version, it
  just includes the DRBD data collector, that can be executed by calling
  ``mon-collector`` using the ``drbd`` parameter. See
  :manpage:`mon-collector(7)`.
1565 1566 1567 1568
- A new user option, :pyeval:`rapi.RAPI_ACCESS_READ`, has been added
  for RAPI users. It allows granting permissions to query for
  information to a specific user without giving
  :pyeval:`rapi.RAPI_ACCESS_WRITE` permissions.

- A new tool named ``node-cleanup`` has been added. It cleans remains of
  a cluster from a machine by stopping all daemons, removing
  certificates and ssconf files. Unless the ``--no-backup`` option is
  given, copies of the certificates are made.

- Instance creations now support the use of opportunistic locking,
  potentially speeding up the (parallel) creation of multiple instances.
  This feature is currently only available via the :doc:`RAPI
  <rapi>` interface and when an instance allocator is used. If the
  ``opportunistic_locking`` parameter is set the opcode will try to
  acquire as many locks as possible, but will not wait for any locks
