      Docker server-side core, esp new libimageops support for Docker images. · 66366489
      David Johnson authored
      The docker VM server-side goo is mostly identical to Xen, with slightly
      different handling for parent images.  We also support loading external
      Docker images (i.e. those without a real imageid in our DB; in that
      case, user has to set a specific stub image, and some extra per-vnode
      metadata (a URI that points to a Docker registry/image repo/tag);
      the Docker clientside handles the rest.
      
      Emulab Docker images map to a Emulab imageid:version pretty seamlessly.
      For instance, the Emulab `emulab-ops/docker-foo-bar:1` image would map
      to `<local-registry-URI>/emulab-ops/emulab-ops/docker-foo-bar:1`; the
      mapping is `<local-registry-URI>/pid/gid/imagename:version`.  Docker
      repository names are lowercase-only, so we handle that for the user; but
      I would prefer that users use lowercase Emulab imagenames for all Docker
      images; that will help us.  That is not enforced in the code; it will
      appear in the documentation, and we'll see.
      
      Full Docker imaging relies on several other libraries
      (https://gitlab.flux.utah.edu/emulab/pydockerauth,
      https://gitlab.flux.utah.edu/emulab/docker-registry-py).  Each
      Emulab-based cluster must currently run its own private registry to
      support image loading/capture (note however that if capture is
      unnecessary, users can use the external images path instead).  The
      pydockerauth library is a JWT token server that runs out of boss's
      Apache and implements authn/authz for the per-Emulab Docker registry
      (probably running on ops, but could be anywhere) that stores images and
      arbitrates upload/download access.  For instance, nodes in an experiment
      securely pull images using their pid/eid eventkey; and the pydockerauth
      emulab authz module knows what images the node is allowed to pull
      (i.e. sched_reloads, the current image the node is running, etc).  Real
      users can also pull images via user/pass, or bogus user/pass + Emulab
      SSL cert.  GENI credential-based authn/z was way too much work, sadly.
      There are other auth/z paths (i.e. for admins, temp tokens for secure
      operations) as well.
      
      As far as Docker image distribution in the federation, we use the same
      model as for regular ndz images.  Remote images are pulled in to the
      local cluster's Docker registry on-demand from their source cluster via
      admin token auth (note that all clusters in the federation have
      read-only access to the entire registries of any other cluster in the
      federation, so they can pull images).  Emulab imageid handling is the
      same as the existing ndz case.  For instance, image versions are lazily
      imported, on-demand; local version numbers may not match the remote
      image source cluster's version numbers.  This will potentially be a
      bigger problem in the Docker universe; Docker users expect to be able to
      reference any image version at any time anywhere.  But that is of course
      handleable with some ex post facto synchronization flag day, at least
      for the Docker images.
      
      The big new thing supporting native Docker image usage is the guts of a
      refactor of the utils/image* scripts into a new library, libimageops;
      this is necessary to support Docker images, which are stored in their
      own registry using their own custom protocols, so not amenable to our
      file-based storage.  Note: the utils/image* scripts currently call out
      to libimageops *only if* the image format is docker; all other images
      continue on the old paths in utils/image*, which all still remain
      intact, or minorly-changed to support libimageops.
      
      libimageops->New is the factory-style mechanism to get a libimageops
      that works for your image format or node type.  Once you have a
      libimageops instance, you can invoke normal image logical operations
      (CreateImage, ImageValidate, ImageRelease, et al).  I didn't do every
      single operation (for instance, I haven't yet dealt with image_import
      beyond essentially generalizing DownLoadImage by image format).
      Finally, each libimageops is stateless; another design would have been
      some statefulness for more complicated operations.   You will see that
      CreateImage, for instance, is written in a helper-subclass style that
      blurs some statefulness; however, it was the best match for the existing
      body of code.  We can revisit that later if the current argument-passing
      convention isn't loved.
      
      There are a couple outstanding issues.  Part of the security model here
      is that some utils/image* scripts are setuid, so direct libimageops
      library calls are not possible from a non-setuid context for some
      operations.  This is non-trivial to resolve, and might not be worthwhile
      to resolve any time soon.  Also, some of the scripts write meaningful,
      traditional content to stdout/stderr, and this creates a tension for
      direct library calls that is not entirely resolved yet.  Not hard, just
      only partly resolved.
      
      Note that tbsetup/libimageops_ndz.pm.in is still incomplete; it needs
      imagevalidate support.  Thus, I have not even featurized this yet; I
      will get to that as I have cycles.

      Changes to reservation system wrt classic interface: · dc90a087
      Leigh Stoller authored
      1. Reservation system now groks experiment lockdown and swappable. When
         swapping in, lockdown and swappable mean the expected end of the
         experiment is never.
      
      2. Reservation library now handles changes to lockdowm, swappable, and
         autoswap (timeout). editexp now hands these changes off to a new
         script called manage_expsettings, which can be called by hand since
         we might need to force a change (I am not changing the classic UI, if
         a change is not allowed by the res system, we have to do it by hand).
      
      3. Minor fixes to reservation library.

      Okay, tricky change; ignore the path that comes into newimageid_ez; the · 4ed3d431
      Leigh Stoller authored
      code to construct a path is duplicated is 5 different places and they
      have gone out of sync. We have not allowed users to set the path for
      years, but we were still constructing a path in php code and passing it
      along. Throw them all away and construct the path the way we want it.
      
      Apply same rules to admins; admins don't know what they are doing
      either. I know, I'm an admin.
      
      But if the admin sets the path to start with /usr/testbed/images, throw
      that away, and construct proper path in /usr/testbed/images.

      Directory based image paths. · 3a21f39e
      Leigh Stoller authored
      Soon, we will have images with both full images and deltas, for the same
      image version. To make this possible, the image path will now be a
      directory instead of a file, and all of the versions (ndz,sig,sha1,delta)
      files will reside in the directory.
      
      A new config variable IMAGEDIRECTORIES turns this on, there is also a check
      for the ImageDiretories feature. This is applied only when a brand new
      image is created; a clone version of the image inherits the path it started
      with. Yes, you can have a mix of directory based and file based image
      descriptors.
      
      When it is time to convert all images over, there is a script called
      imagetodir that will go through all image descriptors, create the
      directory, move/rename all the files, and update the descriptors.
      Ultimately, we will not support file based image paths.
      
      I also added versioning to the image metadata descriptors so that going
      forward, old clients can handle a descriptor from a new server.

      Be consistent with the newnode script. · ab7da9fd
      Mike Hibler authored
      Apparently at some point in the past, wire info for new nodes moved into
      its own table rather than using the switch_* fields of new_interfaces.
      For Geniracks or if a certain feature is set, then this new style is used.
      
      However, newscript unconditionally assumed the new format and generated
      incomplete entries for non-Geniracks. Newscript now makes the same checks
      as newnode.

      Update the use of realpath across all perl scripts · 3f167217
      Kirk Webb authored
      Change to use the realpath function in the 'Cwd' module instead of
      calling realpath via the shell.  The shell command varies in its
      reaction to a missing final path component.  On some platforms (Linux,
      FBSD10+) realpath reports an error if the final component doesn't exist
      on the filesystem.  On others (FBSD < 10), it does not report an error.
      
      The perl function from 'Cwd' emulates the same behavior as FBSD prior to
      version 10, which is the behavior the scripts expect.
      
      From here on out, instead of using `realpath`, do the following:
      
      use Cwd qw(realpath);
      ..
      ..
      my $realpath = realpath($somepath);
