My company is interested in having two driver issues and a software issue
resolved and we are willing to pay a bounty.
Saturday, we were hit by something that looked similar to the mpt/mpt_sas
i/o hang issue https://www.illumos.org/issues/1069. This is a serious bug to
any "enterprise" or "carrier" grade solution and yet doesn't appear from the
bug db that any progress has been made on it. I realize this problem may be
"hard." Fortunately, I have a disk that can create the problem ;-) and we
would like to pay to have the problem solved.
The other driver issue is the lack of a bmc driver.
https://www.illumos.org/issues/370. The test platform I can provide is on
Intel S5520UR motherboards with the server processor module.
The third issue is to turn on fault lights for newisys nds-2240 disk shelves
when a disk has been identified as failed. The support for non-Sun JBOD
shelves needs to be expanded. After the sale of LSI's disk shelf business to
NTAP options became quite limited. Today I use output from fmtopo and
sas2irc util to flip on the locator led but this does not make for an
enterprise solution. I understand that Nexenta has such a solution but they
are not sharing, which is too bad.
Feel free to work on one or all three. In the end, we will donate the code
to the project. If you are qualified and interested in being paid to solve
these problems please send me email off list.
