This is a incremental release on top of v0.5. This release fixes bugs and adds support for running OpenEBS on CentOS based Kubernetes Cluster including OpenShift 3.7+

Issues Fixed in v0.5.1

  • Fix the inter-operability issues of connecting to OpenEBS Volume from CentOS iSCSI Initiator (#1087)
  • Fix openebs-k8s-provisioner to be launched in non-default namespace (#1055)
  • Update the documentation with steps to use OpenEBS on OpenShift Kubernetes Cluster (#1102) and Kubernetes on CentOS (#1104)
  • Update helm charts to use OpenEBS 0.5.1 (#1100)

Known Limitations

  • Requires Kubernetes 1.7.5+
  • Requires iSCSI initiator to be installed in the Kubernetes nodes or kubelet container
  • Not recommended for mission critical workloads
  • Not recommended for performance sensitive workloads. Ongoing efforts intended to improve performance

Setup OpenEBS Volume Monitoring

If you are running your own prometheus, please update it with the following job configuration:

    - job_name: 'openebs-volumes'
      scheme: http
      - role: pod
      - source_labels: [__meta_kubernetes_pod_label_monitoring]
        regex: volume_exporter_prometheus
        action: keep
      - source_labels: [__meta_kubernetes_pod_name]
        action: replace
        target_label: kubernetes_pod_name
      - source_labels: [__meta_kubernetes_pod_label_vsm]
        action: replace
        target_label: openebs_pv
      - source_labels: [__meta_kubernetes_pod_container_port_number]
        action: drop
        regex: '(.*)9501'
      - source_labels: [__meta_kubernetes_pod_container_port_number]
        action: drop
        regex: '(.*)3260

If you don't have prometheus running, you can use the following yaml file to run prometheus and grafana.

kubectl apply -f

You can import the following grafana-dashboard file to view the OpenEBS Volume metrics.
