Weekly status #347

Weekly status for the week of 20th May to 26th May.


In the past week, several important bugfixes have landed in LXD. Additionally, LXD snap is now shipped with new LXD-UI release 0.8.1, which includes numerous improvements and new feature that allows creating an instance from a snapshot.


  • Fixed an issue where stopping a frozen instance would incorrectly report a RUNNING state. Now, a frozen instance cannot be gracefully stopped without starting it first. Additionally, starting an instance will also unfreeze it.
  • The OVN lb-add command allows in certain situations multiple load-balancer entries to be added with the same name, which prevents them from being deleted using lb-del. LXD now deletes load balancer entries by UUID, associates entries directly to logical routers, and drops unused associations with logical switches.
  • With the increase of the default ZFS blocksize from 8KiB to 16KiB, LXD now rounds ZFS volume sizes to 16KiB.
