osup is a command line program managing system upgrades of vpsAdminOS.
handles upgrades and downgrades of
osctl-managed data stored on ZFS pools.
This includes editing container/user/group configuration files, ZFS datasets
and other assets when some backward-incompatible change is introduced in
osup is run by
osctld when it import pools to ensure that the current
osctld is compatible with the data pools.
Migrations are the cornerstone of
osup. Migrations are used to upgrade
the pool to a newer state, or rollback to an older state. Migrations are stored
as directories in migrations/:
Each migration is identified by a timestamp:
YYYYMMDDHHIISS, followed by
a dasherized name describing the migration. The migration is further described
spec.yml, see below for its contents.
up.rb is called for upgrade
down.rb for downgrade.
spec.yml is a file formatted in YAML:
# Optional name, shown in `osup status`
name: i am a migration
multiline string describing what
the migration actually does
# Migrations can work on different parts of the pool. `snapshot` tells `osup`
# what datasets should be snapshot. Snapshots are used in case a migration fails
# to upgrade or rollback.
# If the migration does not need the pool exported from osctld
# export_pool: false
# Use when the pool has to be exported from osctld, but the containers do not
# have to be restarted
# stop_containers: false
down.rb are Ruby scripts used to upgrade and rollback the
migration. These scripts can use whatever dependencies
osup has. Each
migration should be tailored to the pool version it is supposed to work on.
Don't use functions whose behaviour can change over time based on other
migrations. Global variables:
$MIGRATION_ID- ID of the migration
$POOL- name of the ZFS pool to migrate
$DATASET- osctl root dataset on
