varnish-5.0, varnish-modules-0.9.2 and hitch-1.4.1, packages for Fedora and EPEL

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

The Varnish Cache project recently released varnish-5.0, and Varnish Software released hitch-1.4.1. I have wrapped packages for Fedora and EPEL.

varnish-5.0 has configuration changes, so the updated package has been pushed to rawhide, but will not replace the ones currently in EPEL nor in Fedora stable. Those who need varnish-5.0 for EPEL may use my COPR repos at https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/ingvar/varnish50/. They include the varnish-5.0 and matching varnish-modules packages, and are compatible with EPEL 5, 6, and 7.

hitch-1.4.1 is configure file compatible with earlier releases, so packages for Fedora and EPEL are available in their respective repos, or will be once they trickle down to stable.

As always, feedback is warmly welcome. Please report via Red Hat’s Bugzilla or, while the packages are cooking in testing, Fedora’s Package Update System.

IPV6: clatd, a component of 464XLAT, for Fedora and EPEL

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

The World is running out of IPv4 addresses, but luckily, we have IPv6 here now, and running the whole data center on IPv6 only is not just happening, it’s becoming the standard. But what if you have an app, a daemon, or a container that actually needs IPv4 connectivity? Then you may use 464XLAT to provide an IPv4 tunnel through your IPv6 only infrastructure. clatd is one component in 464XLAT.

clatd is a CLAT / SIIT-DC Edge Relay implementation for Linux. From the github wash label:

clatd implements the CLAT component of the 464XLAT network architecture specified in RFC 6877. It allows an IPv6-only host to have IPv4 connectivity that is translated to IPv6 before being routed to an upstream PLAT (which is typically a Stateful NAT64 operated by the ISP) and there translated back to IPv4 before being routed to the IPv4 internet. This is especially useful when local applications on the host requires actual IPv4 connectivity or cannot make use of DNS64 (…) clatd may also be used to implement an SIIT-DC Edge Relay as described in RFC 7756.

Note that clatd relies on Tayga for the actual translation of packets between IPv4 and IPv6.

Yesterday, I pushed clatd for fedora testing and epel testing. Please test and report feedback by bugzilla.

For more information on clatd, see the documentation included in the package, or the clatd github home. For more info on Tayga, visit http://www.litech.org/tayga/.

varnish-4.1.3 and varnish-modules-0.9.1 for fedora and epel

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

The Varnish Cache project recently released varnish-4.1.3 and varnish-modules-0.9.1. Of course, we want updated rpms for Fedora and EPEL.

While there are official packages for el6 and el7, I tend to like to use my Fedora downstream package, also for EPEL. So I have pushed updates for Fedora, and updated copr builds for epel5, epel6, and epel7.

An update of the official supported bundle of varnish modules, varnish-modules-0.9.1, was also released a few weeks ago. I did recently wrap it for Fedora, and am waiting for its review in BZ #1324863. Packages for epel5, epel6, and epel7 are in copr as well.

Fedora updates for varnish-4.1.3 may be found at https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?packages=varnish

The Copr repos for epel are here: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/ingvar/varnish41/

Test and reports are very welcome.

hitch-1.2.0 for fedora and epel

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Hitch is a libev-based high performance SSL/TLS proxy. It is developed by Varnish Software, and may be used for adding https to Varnish cache.

hitch-1.2.0 was recently released. Among the new features in 1.2.0, might be mentioned more granular per-site configuration. Packages for Fedora and EPEL6/7 were requested for testing today. Please test and report feedback.

Tayga, stateless NAT64 implementation

Monday, January 25th, 2016

If you are planning for an IPv6 only Data Center (and if you plan for the future, you are doing that) you may have noticed that there are applications out there that are just not ready for IPv6 yet. So you need some kind of 6-4 translation, either locally or in the network. From the Tayga wash label:

TAYGA is an out-of-kernel stateless NAT64 implementation for Linux that uses the TUN driver to exchange IPv4 and IPv6 packets with the kernel. It is intended to provide production-quality NAT64 service for networks where dedicated NAT64 hardware would be overkill.

Tayga is production quality software. We use it for ipv4 access for large amounts of production nodes every day. It is for example well suited for giving 6-to-4 network access for docker nodes. You may find more information about Tayga on it’s homepage: http://www.litech.org/tayga/

I pushed tayga-0.9.2-3 to Fedora 22 and 23 stable today. It will trickle down to your local mirrors in a couple of days. I have also forked tayga for epel5, epel6, and epel7. Please contribute by testing tayga for EPEL: https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?packages=tayga

Update: tayga is now available in EPEL

varnish-3.0.2 for fedora

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

I finally got around to wrap up varnish-3.0.2 for fedora 17 and rawhide. Please test and report karma.

In this release, I have merged changes from the upstream rpm, and added native systemd support for f17 and rawhide. It also builds nicely for epel5 and epel6, providing packages quite similar to those available from the varnish project repo.

As epel does not allow changes in a package API after release, varnish-3.0.2 won’t be available through epel5 or epel6, so use the varnish project repo, or my precompiled packages for epel 4, 5 and 6 available here.

As always, feedback is very welcome.

rpm packages of varnish-3.0.0

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Varnish is a state of the art http accelerator, or frontside cache, if you like.

varnish-3.0.0 was released some weeks ago. I have built packages for Fedora and epel4/5/6. Packages may be found at the usual http://users.linpro.no/ingvar/varnish/. The rhel packages require some dependencies pulled from epel.

Varnish Software produces their own packages, based on the specfile I maintain for Fedora. The changes from their rpm spec are mostly cosmetic to fit better to Fedora’s packaging standards.

Updated packages of varnish-2.1.4

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Varnish is a state of the art HTTP accelerator, used to keep sites like Twitter, Wikia and Facebook up to speed.

Varnish version 2.1.4 was released the other day. Users of RHEL5 and clones may now use Varnish Software’s own repo directly.

I have done a few improvements over the specfile in the released version. They will be synced upstream soon. I have built updated packages for Fedora Rawhide, 14, 13, and epel6. You can find them in their respective testing repos from where they will eventually trickle down to stable. I have also built updated packages for el4 and el5. You can find them at http://users.linpro.no/ingvar/varnish

If you use Varnish Software’s own repo for rhel5, the only changes to these newer packages are related to documentation and the building process, and there is no need to upgrade to these packages for stability or bugfix reasons.

varnish-2.0.5 released, rpm packages updated

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Varnish is a state of the art high performance HTTP accelerator. varnish-2.0.5 was released yesterday.

I have submitted varnish-2.0.5 for Fedora and Fedora EPEL, and updates to the stable releases will be requested, so they will trickle down to the stable repos in a few weeks.

For RHEL and derivates, updates for both el4 and el5 are in the EPEL testing repo. For those who are too impatient to wait for stable, or want to participate in testing, you can update the package with yum:

rhel5# yum --enablerepo=epel-testing update varnish

… or download the package from RedHat:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/testing/

Fedora packages are still pending for testing, but will be visible in a
few days, I guess. If you need packages for Fedora now, try
http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/varnish/.

Bugs in the package can be reported in Red Hat’s Bugzilla:
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ or to varnish-dist(a)projects.linpro.no.

Varnish in EPEL – packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and clones

Monday, October 20th, 2008

I requested EPEL EL-4 and EL-5 tag and build for varnish on friday night. The packages will be included in the main EPEL repos at the next sync from testing, that is primo November. These packages are the same as we use in production, and should be quite ready for general usage. Packages are available at http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/testing/ . There is a list of known bugs that will be fixed eventually in the 2.0 series at http://varnish.projects.linpro.no/wiki/TroubleLog

Please report any problems as tickets in Trac at http://varnish.projects.linpro.no/ (you’ll to register and login to file tickets). Bugs reported by RedHat’s Bugzilla will end up the same place over time, but we would prefer our the local ticket system.
