GlusterFS is a stackable distributed scale-out file system in user space. At the core of GlusterFS are building blocks known as translators. Each translator is a self-contained functional unit and various translators can be stacked together to build a file system that serves a workload. With addition of new translators, the capabilities of GlusterFS can be extended.
This talk will discuss how a new translator can be built from the ground up. The talk will cover infrastructure components that are useful in building a new translator and how the newly built translator can be integrated into GlusterFS's management stack. The talk will also demo extending GlusterFS functionality by building a new translator.
