So I've just finished tagging 3.7.10 in the repository.
I've done basic usability, upgrade and performance tests with fuse clients.
I tested I/O using dbench, iozone and perf-test, and it happened
I performed a rolling upgrade from 3.7.9 with I/O happening, and was
able to cleanly upgrade without I/O stopping.
I used perf-test script to measure performance changes between 3.7.9
and 3.7.10. I did the test on a 2x2 replicated volume. The storage
pool was created using VMs, so please don't read too much into them.
Smallfile/largefile creates and rewrites, and metadata modify seem to
have improved significantly.
The changes are significant enough that I hope they are actual
improvements rather than changes due to VM resource availability. I'd
love it if someone could do the test on actual physical hardware.
I hope to announce the release early next week, hopefully on Monday,
once the packages have been built.
Maintainers may now restart merging changes on the release-3.7 branch.
