LXD 6.1 has been released

Introduction

The LXD team would like to announce the release of LXD 6.1!

This is the first feature release in the new 6.x series.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this release!

New features and highlights

Automatic IP allocation for OVN network forwards and load balancers

The OVN network forward and load balancers now support automatic IP allocation.

Previously when creating an OVN network forward or load balancer you had to specify the external listen address on the uplink network manually. However, this could be time consuming to figure out which IPs are available and in cases where an OVN network existed inside a project the user creating the network forward or load balancer may not have had sufficient access to see the available IPs on the uplink anyway.

To solve this the lxc network forward create and lxc network load-balancer create commands now accept an optional --allocate flag. This flag can take the value either ipv4 or ipv6 to instruct LXD to allocate an IPv4 or IPv6 address respectively.

LXD will look for an unused IP in the range(s) allocated for OVN network use on the uplink network and if one is available select it for the listen address.

VM automatic core pinning load balancing

Virtual machines that don’t explicitly specify the CPU cores to use will now have their QEMU processes automatically pinned to load balanced CPU cores by LXD’s instance scheduler. This mirrors the behaviour that LXD container processes follow. LXD’s scheduler will rebalance the CPU pinning configuration when instances are added, modified or removed. This change has been added to make VM performance more predictable for latency sensitive applications.

Note: On systems that have mixed performance and efficiency cores (P+E) you may find that VM performance is decreased due to the way LXD now pins some of the VM’s vCPUs to efficiency cores rather than letting the Linux scheduler dynamically schedule them. You can use the explicit CPU pinning feature if needed to avoid this.

Documentation: CPU Pinning

Dell Powerflex Storage Data Client (SDC) kernel driver support

It is now possible to use the Dell Powerflex Storage Data Client (SDC) kernel driver with LXD powerflex storage pools. This is an alternative to using NVME over TCP which is also supported.

To enable the SDC mode, set the powerflex.mode to sdc.
If the mode is not set, LXD will first try to use nvme mode and then fallback to the sdc mode.

Note that when using the SDC mode, LXD requires it to already be connected to the Dell Metadata Manager (MDM), as LXD does not set up the SDC connection itself.

Documentation: Dell PowerFlex

On demand kernel module loading from a container

Introduces support for container finit_module syscall interception that allows lazily loading Linux kernel modules from inside unprivileged container if module is in the allow list linux.kernel_modules and linux.kernel_modules.load is set to ondemand.

Removal of trust password feature

The core.trust_password server setting has been removed. This is to improve the security posture of LXD to avoid allowing the use of long-lived shared passwords for gaining access to the LXD API. This means that in order to add new clients to LXD one must now either add the certificates directly to the trust store or use join tokens.

Documentation: Trust TLS clients

Removal of hidden config option concept

Core server configuration can only be viewed by clients with admin permission.
This means that the feature to not return the value of certain fields that were deemed to be sensitive is not required anymore. This exceptional behaviour of the LXD API has now been removed so that all configuration fields behave in the same way (i.e the value of the setting is returned if the client has sufficient access rights). This change only affects the loki.auth.password setting.

Tighten container mknod syscall interception capability checks to align with kernel behaviour

When using LXD’s mknod syscall interception feature, the capability checks have now been tightened to align to what the host kernel normally does. This means that only a user with CAP_MKNOD in the container’s initial user namespace can use it.

Documentation: System call interception

Drop DNS traffic to dnsmasq originating outside of the bridge network

LXD’s managed bridge networks provide a DNS service (dnsmasq) that listens on the bridge interface and is intended to provide DNS resolution for instances connected to that network only. By default LXD bridges are configured with NAT enabled and automatic RFC1918/ULA private subnet allocation. However if a bridge network is configured with a routable subnet then the dnsmasq DNS service could become reachable from outside of the bridge network.

To prevent this LXD managed bridge networks now add firewall rules to the host system to drop DNS traffic directed to the dnsmasq service that originates outside of the bridge network or the local host.

Support running VMs on hosts with >64 CPUs

An issue that prevented starting VMs on hosts that had >64 CPUs has now been fixed.
There remains a limit to the number of vCPUs that can be passed into a VM guest, which is currently at 256. But VMs can be started on hosts with >256 CPUs.

Long TPM and disk directory share device name VM support and hot unplug fixes

It was not possible to use tpm and disk directory share devices with VMs when their names were >27 characters or if they contained the / character. Longer names and names with / characters are now supported.

In order to achieve this support the mount tag used for virtiofs and 9p directory shares now uses escaping and hashing to keep the mount tag compatible with QEMU.

This means that the mount tag used for an existing disk device may change when you restart the VM after switching to this release. If you rely on the lxd-agent to mount directory shares then restarting the VM will result in the updated lxd-agent using the new mount tags. If you manually mount the directory share you may need to update the mount tag used inside the guest OS.

Device names containing the - character are now escaped to --, and the / character is escaped to -. If the total length of the name after escaping exceeds 27 characters then the mount tag will be a hashed value of the name.

Removal of armhf support for ceph

As part of our preparations for moving to the core24 base snap, ceph support for armhf architecture has been removed because it is no longer available in the Ubuntu Noble release.

Updated minimum Go version to 1.22.4

The minimum version of Go required to build LXD is now 1.22.4.

Wawaweewa!! Very nice! I like!

Eventhough I’m happily staying with 5.0.3 for production workload (it’s so stable and nice) and 5.21.1 is now in testing. Look forward to trying 6.1 at some point.

Is there any way that I could bypass this or disable the firewall rules? I have been making use of DNS to ssh into containers from outside of the bridge network/localhost. Thank you.

Hi there,

What is your use case, do you set your external machine’s DNS resolve settings to the LXD bridge’s DNS resolver service IP?
