Tarball: criu-1.8.tar.bz2
Version: 1.8
Released: 7 Dec 2015
GIT tag: v1.8

New features

  • Ability to check CRIU features via RPC
  • New zdtm.py test suite
  • Pre-dump and pre-restore action scripts
  • The "info" action in CRIT showing stats about image file
  • More user-friendly output by CRIT
  • Python API -- pycriu
  • Ability to add custom paths to irmap scan
  • C/R of
    • read-only bind mounts
    • IPv6 routes and iptables rules
    • ip rules (it ip tool supports such)
    • ignore_routes_with_linkdown netns devconf
    • empty bridges in netns

Optimizations/improvements

  • Shared pie/non-pie .c files are built two times with proper flags
  • VDSO code re-shuffled for better re-use between arches
  • Failures of action scripts are reported in logs
  • OpenVZ's VENET handling is tuned to fit the current kernel state
  • Do not use hardcoded /dev/rts maj:min numbers
  • Unsupported socket protocols are reported at expected place
  • Slightly faster access to /proc files by using O_PATH open mode
  • Improved page-server dump speed by keeping control over the Nagle algorithm
  • Read pages.img in more optimal manner rather than page-by-page

Fixes

  • Page server flooded node with tw buckets during migration
  • Turned off cgroups controllers weren't detected as such
  • Netns sysctls from old images weren't properly restored
  • Running process could be mistakenly stopped after --leave-running dump
  • Helper processes run by CRIU produced fake error messages in logs
  • Error code from sigaction restore could be missed
  • Several potential buffers overruns due to missed '\0' after strcpy-s existed
  • Killed processes after dump survived in zombie state for some time holding PIDs and resources
  • If task had MANY children, the latter could be skipped on dump
  • Task dying while being frozen could fail the dump
  • On Aarch64 the upper limit for user memory was not properly detected sometimes
  • Guess for TCP buffer max segment size was too optimistic (could fail the restore on low-mem machines)
  • CRIT didn't decode userns images
  • Ghost files were left in the FS tree after failed restore (blocking the next restore attempt)
  • Some log messages from pie code were lost
  • Some net/ipc/uts sysctls failed to restore in userns
  • Move tasks int cgroups failed in userns
  • Unsupported filesystems silently failed the dump
  • External tmpfs (and some other) mounts generated tarballs with their contents

Security

  • Service run as root could allow users to violate ptrace policies
  • Service run as root could give users access to privileged files and directories
