14:02:22 <edmondsw> pinging esberglu efried gman_tx mdrabe mujahidali
14:02:41 <esberglu> vSCSI is out of the runway. Unfortunate that our runway slot was during the summit / memorial day
14:03:03 <edmondsw> that counted?
14:03:17 <esberglu> Yep
14:03:25 <edmondsw> that's some feedback on the runway process... PTG and summit weeks should not count
14:03:33 <edmondsw> efried ^
14:03:50 <esberglu> But all issues have been addressed and CI is passing, so I'm not worried about getting it in
14:04:17 <efried> Yeah, there was some chatter about dispensations for summit week.  Guess that didn't fly.
14:04:41 <edmondsw> yeah, in a runway or not, we should ask mriedem and melwitt to take a look and confirm their issues are addressed
14:05:13 <esberglu> I won't be able to do any more in-tree work this release (resize/mig) so that will probably slide until next release
14:05:22 <edmondsw> esberglu understood
14:05:23 <esberglu> And we don't have CI yet for that anyways
14:05:42 <edmondsw> esberglu I'm hoping you'll still be able to finish the CI work for that
14:05:47 <edmondsw> but we can talk about that when we get to CI
14:06:14 <edmondsw> I'm not giving up yet on some of the resize/mig work getting in if we can get CI done
14:06:45 <edmondsw> maybe efried or I can pick that up (the porting, not CI)
14:06:49 <esberglu> That's all I have for in-tree
14:07:14 <edmondsw> oh, forgot to link

14:08:04 <edmondsw> chhagarw gman-tx can one of you update us on iSCSI?
14:08:37 <edmondsw> I think we're waiting on DevStack testing for https://review.openstack.org/#/c/567575/
14:09:36 <edmondsw> I know chhagarw was trying to set that up last week and had some issues
14:09:54 <edmondsw> esberglu I pointed her to you for help... did that happen?
14:10:41 <esberglu> Yeah she's had bad luck and hit about every issue I know stacking, still working on it today
14:10:53 <edmondsw> alright tx
14:11:19 <edmondsw> I talked to efried about what we need to do for MSP support
14:12:00 <edmondsw> and we've got some patches in flight related to tox configs
14:12:06 <edmondsw> and lower constraints jobs
14:12:37 <edmondsw> we've been testing networking-powervm against a queens neutron release instead of master, which I'm trying to fix
14:12:37 <edmondsw> etc.
14:13:30 <edmondsw> another thing that I don't think I've mentioned here before is that not that we have things official with PowerVMStackers we should be able to move our docs to docs.openstack.org from readthedocs
14:13:58 <edmondsw> lots of docs cleanup we can do
14:14:17 <edmondsw> I think that's enough on OOT for today unless anyone has anything else
14:14:43 <esberglu> edmondsw: I'm putting together a list of backports for the merged IT changes
14:14:54 <edmondsw> esberglu great, thank you
14:15:01 <edmondsw> that is important
14:15:56 <edmondsw> added that to the TODO list so I don't forget
14:16:09 <edmondsw> you can link things there
14:16:16 <chhagarw> code is done, its been waiting for devstack to complete, facing issues with devstack
14:16:51 <edmondsw> chhagarw hopefully we can help you get those resolved today/tomorrow
14:17:34 <edmondsw> #topic Device Passthrough
14:17:41 <edmondsw> efried any update?
14:18:17 <efried> trying to think whether I had already mentioned: granular has merged on both sides (placement & scheduler).
14:18:33 <efried> NRP series still needs reviews (no action during summit).
14:18:50 <efried> Libvirt use of update_provider_tree merged.
14:19:15 <efried> I think that's it for now.
14:19:20 <edmondsw> we learned something interesting at the summit... when you attach a NovaLink adapter, you actually have to attach 3 specific PCI devices as a set to get full performance
14:20:04 <edmondsw> that can probably be abstracted away from Nova but representing the set as a single thing in placement
14:20:17 <edmondsw> when I say nova, I mean outside the driver
14:20:18 <efried> You're talking about the GPUs and the NVLink adapters
14:20:22 <edmondsw> yes
14:20:38 <edmondsw> sorry... NVLink, not NovaLink
14:20:52 <efried> I don't know HOW you could have confused those.
14:20:55 <edmondsw> lol
14:21:03 <edmondsw> fingers doing their own thing
14:22:14 <edmondsw> there was a very interesting presentation by NTT (Japanese company) about using GPUs with OpenStack on Power systems if anybody wants to go back and watch the replay
14:22:40 <edmondsw> and some good conversation in the hall afterward

14:23:48 <esberglu> vSCSI CI is up but for master branch only
14:23:56 <esberglu> I've been having mujahidali work on the stable branches
14:24:04 <edmondsw> (OOT)
14:24:18 <esberglu> huh?
14:24:26 <esberglu> Oh the OOT stable branches
14:24:27 <esberglu> Yeah
14:24:29 <edmondsw> right
14:24:34 <mujahidali> I am trying to enable vscsi on stable branches but I got the error: etcd3 not found.I browse to the location and found that 3.1 version of etcd3 was not there
14:24:46 <edmondsw> no IT since we didn't have vSCSI IT for queens a prev
14:24:46 <mujahidali> https://github.com/coreos/etcd/releases
14:26:02 <esberglu> mujahidali: I haven't had a chance to look at that issue yet
14:27:04 <esberglu> mujahidali: Do you have ETCD_VERSION set in your local.conf?
14:27:50 <esberglu> edmondsw: Regarding multinode CI. I've been getting pressured from my new position to close all current work
14:28:15 <esberglu> In our meeting a few weeks ago we agreed that I would deliver vSCSI CI and help mujahidali finish up multinode
14:28:23 <edmondsw> yep
14:28:54 <esberglu> I can maybe sacrifice a few hours here or there but that's it
14:29:18 <edmondsw> that's fine as long as it's enough to get things done
14:29:28 <edmondsw> does mujahidali know how to take that over?
14:29:32 <esberglu> no
14:29:37 <mujahidali> esberglu, ETCD_VERSION=v3.2.0-rc.1 but need to figure out why it's picking 3.1.10
14:30:25 <esberglu> I'll put together some notes about what's left for multinode and send it out to both of you
14:30:51 <edmondsw> esberglu ok thanks
14:31:04 <esberglu> mujahidali: I'm going to be redeploying the staging CI environment today, so if you have anything on it you need, save it elsewhere
14:31:19 <mujahidali> go ahead
14:32:26 <esberglu> There's a bunch of stuff we can clean up around vSCSI CI, I've added all of it to the etherpad so I won't go into it here
14:32:37 <edmondsw> agreed, tx
14:33:14 <esberglu> Thats all
14:33:28 <edmondsw> esberglu thanks. And great job getting vSCSI done
14:33:36 <esberglu> thanks
