LXD snap: Call for testing

snap

(Stéphane Graber) #1

Introduction

We’ve been working pretty hard on improving the LXD snap package.
Our goal was to make it to the point where we’re comfortable with users running it in production and can support it in the same way we support people using native packages.

With LXD 2.17, this should now be the case and we expect the LXD experience to be identical whether you’re using our snap package or a native package from your distribution.

However before we start updating documentation and push more people towards the snap, we’d like to get some user feedback.

Why a snap?

The snap packaging format lets us as the upstream publish a tested, blessed build of LXD and anything that it needs which can be used on a wide range of Linux distributions.

This makes it easy to get the exact same experience regardless of Linux distribution and greatly simplifies support on our end as we can reproduce bit for bit any installation.

Moving forward, we will be phasing out our Ubuntu PPAs and then our backports to older Ubuntu releases. Both of those use cases will be transitioned over to the snap.

This will significantly reduce the amount of time we have to spend on building and testing all of those packages and the machinery used to publish them.

Channels and tracks

For the LXD snap, we use the following channels:

  • edge: Automatically built from upstream “git” after automated CI
  • candidate: Staging area for stable, usually about a 24h delay
  • stable: Latest LXD release

The default track is “latest” which means the latest LXD feature release (2.17 at time of writing).
We also have a second track called “2.0” which contains builds of the LXD 2.0 LTS release.
This track won’t be production ready with the snap until LXD 2.0.11 is released.

The only channels we’ll be officially supporting are our “stable” channels.

Installing the snap

First you’ll want to make sure that you don’t have an old LXD installation around.
Wipe your existing LXD installation clean, then remove its packages from your system.

Then install snapd for your Linux distribution, you can find instructions here.

Once everything is clean, you can install LXD with:

snap install lxd

After a few seconds (LXD needs to generate some certificates), you can then run:

lxd init

And then start using LXD.

Snap specific configuration

The LXD snap has a few configuration options which you can set through “snap set”.

  • daemon.debug [default=“false”]: If set to “true”, enables LXD debug logging
  • daemon.group [default=“lxd”]: What group should be allowed to interact with LXD
  • ceph.builtin [default=“false”]: If set to “true”, a separate ceph configuration directory will be used for the snap
  • openvswitch.builtin [default=“false”]: If set to “true”, spawn a LXD-specific Open vSwitch daemon

For example, to enable debugging, do:

snap set lxd daemon.debug=true
systemctl reload snap.lxd.daemon

Next steps

Our plan for the next few weeks/months regarding the snap is:

  • Get the “2.0” track to production ready state too (with the upcoming LXD 2.0.11).
  • Slowly get our PPA users to move to the snap too.
  • Deprecated our PPAs, saving us quite a bit of effort in maintaining those.
  • Slowly get our backports users to move the snap too.

The transition from deb to snap will be done through a script which will let you move your existing environment to the snap without loosing anything. We’ll initially just prompt users on package upgrade, suggesting that they switch to the snap. Then after a few months of that, will just auto-transition the remaining users before we deprecate the deb package.

For those using LXD in Ubuntu and who aren’t using our PPA or backports, nothing will change. We are committed to supporting those packages until the Ubuntu release reaches its end of life.

Need help with snap install - Unable to talk to LXD

Thanks for this. One of the things that were showstoppers for me are fixed with this relese especially the bash-completion. The LXD 2.17 snap has been working fine for me since yesterday. Added the logs incase they are of use.

On bare metal it seems working correctly.
The only problem I have is that after a machine restart (I mean “sudo shutdown -r now”) are in state running but the network addresses are not assigned.

Interesting, so containers are starting back up but not getting their IP address.

Can you show:

  • lxc config show --expanded NAME (for one of your broken containers)
  • lxc exec NAME – ps fauxww (for one of your broken containers)
  • lxc network show lxdbr0 (assuming you’re using lxdbr0)

Does restarting the container have it get an IP address?


(Mirto Busico) #5

Sorry, after another reboot attempt all worked correctly.
Now I’ll take the machine under observation.

For the history, below is whatt happened before:

Normal container’s state:

sysop@s4:~/script$ lxc list
+-------------+---------+--------------------------------+------+------------+-----------+

|             |         | 10.0.1.88 (eth1)               |      |            |           |
+-------------+---------+--------------------------------+------+------------+-----------+

After “shutdown -r now” (really I first stop all KVM domains and all LXC containers) the container’s state was:

sysop@s4:~/script$ lxc list  
+-------------+---------+------+------+------------+-----------+
|    NAME     |  STATE  | IPV4 | IPV6 |    TYPE    | SNAPSHOTS |
+-------------+---------+------+------+------------+-----------+
| cybersec    | RUNNING |      |      | PERSISTENT | 0         |
+-------------+---------+------+------+------------+-----------+
| db-server   | RUNNING |      |      | PERSISTENT | 0         |
+-------------+---------+------+------+------------+-----------+
| icons       | RUNNING |      |      | PERSISTENT | 0         |
+-------------+---------+------+------+------------+-----------+
| liferaybase | RUNNING |      |      | PERSISTENT | 0         |
+-------------+---------+------+------+------------+-----------+
| servizi     | RUNNING |      |      | PERSISTENT | 0         |
+-------------+---------+------+------+------------+-----------+

The command “sudo systemctl restart snap.lxd.daemon” takes all the containers in the normal state

On the machine there is also a Shorewall firewall. I don’t know if this interfere.

Thanks for your attention

My second machine is a KVM virtual machine. On this machine it works correctly
I had the same problem running containers without address) but after three reboot the situation nomalized and now restarts correctly.

Inside this VM I have:

Hi everyone,

I’ve just followed the migration process step by step and it does not work for me.

The particularity of this environment is that Ubuntu is natively installed on ZFS as described here https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/wiki/Ubuntu%2016.04%20Root%20on%20ZFS

Before performing the migration I had running containers.

The issues I encountered:

  • Removing LXD, removes also Juju.

  • I was not able to re use my previous dataset and so I’m blocked here for now.

  • The LXC command is not found.

    $ lxc version
    -bash: /usr/bin/lxc: No such file or directory

while

$ whereis lxc
lxc: /usr/share/lxc /snap/bin/lxc

As I have similar environments in production, I would like to know how to perform this migration while keeping:

  • my current ZFS Dataset dedicated to LXD
  • my LXD network configuration as I have iptables rules defined
  • my current LXC and Juju environments running

Thanks for your help

Eric

So that’s why I said not to do this on a system which has an old LXD installation around. It’s also mentioned in the next steps that we do not yet have a path to transition from the deb to the snap, so what you’re attempting to do won’t work.

  • Juju depending on the lxd deb will be resolved soon-ish as Juju itself is switching to snap-only.
  • LXD indeed will not let you use a dirty ZFS pool, even if it did, you’d still not have any of the database entries for those containers, so that wouldn’t exactly help.
  • The command being not found is most likely just shell command caching. Closing your user session and opening it again should fix that.

What you’re asking for, except for the Juju part is what we’re working on now. That’s a tool which you can run to move from the Debian package to the Snap package while conserving all your containers, images and configuration (including storage pools and networks).

This should be ready for testing in the next couple of weeks.

Hi @stgraber,

thanks for your answer and indeed, I have to admit that I’ve missed this part…

Regarding the future, uninstalling the LXD deb package does not remove the managed bridges (eq. lxdbr0).
So, after installing the snap package and running lxd init while keeping defaults, there is a conflict with the already existing bridge.
Bridge that you cannot set as managed after the initialization if you decided not to create a bridge during this latest process.

Best regards

Eric

Maybe I’ve missed the lxc network attach command, don’t I ?

The bridge only shows up if you ever used that LXD daemon. Since my instructions are for a clean system, that shouldn’t have been the case and so the bridge wouldn’t be around.

On LXD 2.17 or higher LXD will also tear down any bridge it’s got on shutdown, in which case even a used LXD will have its bridge go away.

Removing a leftover bridge so that LXD will let you define it again is usually as simple as:

ip link del lxdbr0

That’s what I’ve done, but thanks for the explanation.

zfs as storage backend.


(Stéphane Graber) #14

That’s because you have both the snap and deb installed at the same time, so some commands hit the snap and others hit the deb.

You can run lxd.migrate that will move stuff over from the deb to the snap and then offer to remove it for you.


(Martin) #15

Does this include new Ubuntu releases?
As in will Ubuntu 18.04 have LXC/LXD/LXCFS in the official repositories like normal, but if we’ll want a newer version our only official option will be to use the snap?

EDIT: Also, does updating lxd via the snap still require restart of all containers?


(Stéphane Graber) #16

18.04 will ship LXD 3.0 as a deb but any feature release after that will be available as a snap only.

We fixed the restart issue quite a while ago, so only the LXD daemon restarts on refreshes, the containers keep running, same as with the deb.


(Idef1x) #17

recursive mounts doesn’t seem to work with snap package? I get an error saying:

error: The recursive option is only supported for additional bind-mounted paths

The path and subdir paths are mounted (zfs datasets).


#18

Trying to make sure I’m understanding correctly what you are saying.
There will be a LXD (version 3) available as a .deb file.
After version 3 LXD will only be available as a snap package.

Is that accurate?
If it is accurate - - - why choose to use snap rather than a .deb file?


#19

I’m answering myself - - - sorry (its not because I ‘really’ know anything - - - grin!)!!
As I was logging out I was scrolling up the page.
Near the beginning of the page was the answer to my second question.
I can understand producing something that means lesser amounts of support should be needed.

Pace!

The SNAP LXD seems to be working well.
