Prerequisites

General

All worker nodes must satisfy the following requirements:
  • x86-64 CPU cores with SSE4.2 instruction support
  • (Tested on) Linux kernel 5.15 (Recommended) Linux kernel 5.13 or higher. The kernel should have the following modules loaded:
    • nvme-tcp
    • ext4 and optionally xfs
    • Helm version must be v3.7 or later.
  • Each worker node which will host an instance of an io-engine pod must have the following resources free and available for exclusive use by that pod:
    • Two CPU cores
    • 1GiB RAM
    • HugePage support
      • A minimum of 2GiB of 2MiB-sized pages

Networking requirements

  • Ensure that the following ports are not in use on the node:
    • 10124: Mayastor gRPC server will use this port.
    • 8420 / 4421: NVMf targets will use these ports.
  • The firewall settings should not restrict connection to the node.

Minimum worker node count

The minimum supported worker node count is three nodes. When using the synchronous replication feature (N-way mirroring), the number of worker nodes to which Mayastor is deployed should be no less than the desired replication factor.

Transport protocols

Mayastor supports the export and mounting of volumes over NVMe-oF TCP only. Worker node(s) on which a volume may be scheduled (to be mounted) must have the requisite initiator support installed and configured. In order to reliably mount Mayastor volumes over NVMe-oF TCP, a worker node's kernel version must be 5.13 or later and the nvme-tcp kernel module must be loaded.
