      serializer: Remove JSON indentation and dict key sorting · a182a3ed
      Michael Hanselmann authored
      Serializing to JSON using “simplejson” is significantly slower when
      indentation and/or sorting of dictionary keys is used. In simplejson 1.x
      the difference isn't that big, but with simplejson 2.x the difference
      can be up to a factor of 7.5. The reason is that the latter no longer
      uses C functions when sorting or indentation is used.
      With this patch we revert everything to simplejson's defaults, which
      should provide us with the best performance available.

      Add daemon for instance import and export · 2d76b580
      Michael Hanselmann authored
      This backend daemon for instance import and export will be used to
      transfer instance data to other machines. It is implemented in a generic
      way to support different ways of data input and output. The third-party
      program “socat”, which is already used by the KVM hypervisor abstraction,
      is used to connect to remote machines using SSL/TLS. After starting the
      child processes in a separate process group, the import/export daemon
      monitors their output and updates a status file regularily. This status
      file can then be read by ganeti-noded (not in this patch).
      Three I/O methods are supported: Raw disk, file and script. Each of these
      can be used for import and export.
      Similar to daemon-util, an incomplete set of tests written in Bash is
      Two future enhancements are planned:
      - Run parts of the command chain as a dedicated user (privilege
      - Currently users of this daemon have to poll the status file while data
        is transferred. This is inefficient and creates unnecessary delays. By
        adding “dd” into the chain and sending it SIGUSR1 regularily, we can get
        some statistics, optimize the polling frequenc and even provide the user
        with an ETA (which isn't available with all current methods to
        import/export instance data).
