I would be happy to get some feedback on my NVMf target namespace masking
implementation using attach/detach:
The patch introduces namespace masking for NVMe-over-fabrics
targets by allowing to (dynamically) attach and detach
controllers to/from namespaces, cf. NVMe spec 1.4 - section 6.1.4.
Since SPDK only supports the dynamic controller model a new
controller is allocated on every fabric connect command.
This allows to attach/detach controllers of a specific
host NQN to/from a namespace. A host can only perform
operations to an active namespace. Inactive namespaces can
be listed (not supported by SPDK) but no additional
information can be retrieved:
"Unless otherwise noted, specifying an inactive NSID in a
command that uses the Namespace Identifier (NSID) field shall
cause the controller to abort the command with status
Invalid Field in Command" - NVMe spec 1.4 - section 6.1.5
Note that this patch does not implement the NVMe namespace
attachment command but allows to attach/detach via RPCs only.
To preserve current behavior all controllers are auto attached.
To not not auto attach controllers the nvmf_subsystem_add_ns
shall be called with "--no-auto-attach". We introduce two new
- nvmf_ns_attach_ctrlr <subsysNQN> <NSID> [--host <hostNQN>]
- nvmf_ns_detach_ctrlr <subsysNQN> <NSID> [--host <hostNQN>]
If no host NQN is specified all controllers
(new and currently connected) will attach/detach to/from the
The list in spdk_nvmf_ns is used to keep track of hostNQNs
which controllers should be attached on connect.
The active_ns array in spdk_nvmf_ctrlr is used for fast lookup
to check whether a NSID is active/inactive on command execution.
On behalf of the SPDK community I'm pleased to announce the release of SPDK 21.07!
This release contains the following new features:
- Kernel DSA: Added support in IDXD library for the kernel DSA driver.
- Init library: Added Init library that initializes the SPDK subsystems.
- Userspace DTrace: Added support running bpftrace scripts against SPDK applications. See https://spdk.io/doc/usdt.html.
- zipf utility: Added zipf random number generator with power law probability distribution. When used with bdevperf and nvme perf tools - blocks over the full range of LBAs will be used, but will more frequently select lower-numbered LBAs.
The full changelog for this release is available at:
This release contains 711 commits from 56 authors with over 35k lines of code changed.
We'd especially like to recognize all of our first time contributors:

I am running SPDK application on nodes say Node.A & Node.B, both the nodes are accessing the shared disk D connected via network attached storage.
Creating some logical volumes(lvol) through Node.A does not appear to be visible on the Node.B unless and until the SPDK app is restarted or reloaded again.
I wanted to know if there is a way to reload/pull the metadata updates without actually reloading the SPDK app on Node.B?.
Thanks & Regards,
