nbdkit / FOSDEM test presentation about better loop mounts for Linux

I’ve submitted a talk about nbdkit, our flexible pluggable NBD server, to FOSDEM next February. This is going to be about using NBD as a better way to do loop mounts in Linux.

In preparation I gave a very early version of the talk to a small Red Hat audience.

Video link: http://oirase.annexia.org/rwmj.wp.com/rjones-nbdkit-tech-talk-2018-11-19.mp4

Sorry about the slow start. You may want to skip to 2 mins to get past the intro.

Summary of what’s in the talk:

  1. Demo of regular, plain loop mounting.
  2. Demo of loop mounting an XZ-compressed disk image using NBD + nbdkit.
  3. Slides about how loop device compares to NBD.
  4. Slides about nbdkit plugins and filters.
  5. Using VMware VDDK to access a VMDK file.
  6. Creating a giant disk costing EUR 300 million(!)
  7. Visualizing a single filesystem.
  8. Visualizing RAID 5.
  9. Writing a plugin in shell script (live demo).
  10. Summary.

My 10 minute lightning talk on virt-builder from FOSDEM 2014

image

My 10 minute lightning talk about virt-builder is available to download now (video).

Since there are a few sound problems early on in the talk, I have also created a subtitles file: Advanced_disk_image_management_with_libguestfs.srt With VLC you can just drop this file into the same directory as the video file, and VLC will automatically display the subs. With other players you might need to load the subs separately.

Edit: Thanks everyone for turning up. There was a video recording which will probably be available within two weeks. Unfortunately there were some technical problems with the microphone, but I’ll try and add subtitles once the video is available.
