I had simple questions about SPDK:
does SPDK support FreeBSD? or it just support Linux only?
SPDK supports FreeBSD where possible. Our NVMe driver and our I/OAT driver work,
as does our iSCSI target, but our NVMe-oF target requires a functional
libibverbs which isn't available on FreeBSD. If that dependency was available,
our target should work.
for Linux, which kernel version is adviced to run SPDK?
SPDK uses a very small number of kernel interfaces, so you are free to choose
essentially any "modern" Linux kernel starting with the 3.x series. We do most
of our testing closer to the latest - 4.6 as of this email - but we run this on
3.x kernels regularly too. The main requirement is that the kernel supports
either uio or vfio. If you ever run into a problem on an older kernel we'd love
to hear about it so we can fix it.
