Package: fio
Version: 3.1-1
Severity: wishlist

sitsofe provided various suggestions and comments in an github issue¹. This
is a copy of it, in order to reference it in the changelog of the package.
I disabled issues on the github mirror of the packaging repo in order to
encourage people to use the Debian bugtracker. Putting all the comments in
one bug report to save the time.


Thank you sitsofe for those suggestions.

sitsofe commented on 2 Nov 2017:

  looks redundant now.

  is interesting. Red Hat took a different approach of disabling all 
  and then using EXTFLAGS -
  (I'm just noting the different approach - I'd say there's is slightly more 
risky but didn't require a patch...)

  Making the build reproducible should already in there via axboe/fio@785e49c
  for 3.1 and later.

- One potential suggestion - did you want to ship the fio.service off to
  the "installable services" location so systemctl enable works?

sitsofe commented on 4 Nov 2017:

One more suggestion - if you have the flex and bison packages available
at build time fio will gain the ability to perform some arithmetic operations
( ).
I would guess these could go in the Build-Depends line of .

sitsofe commented on 5 Nov 2017: 

- You may want to add libnuma-dev to the Build-Depends so NUMA control
  is available (see
  but there's a warning there it's not available on all platforms).

- You may want to optionally add glusterfs-common to Build-Depends
  so the Gluster ioengine is built.

- I don't know if it's possible but you may want to make some existing
  Build-Depends optional dependent on the platform (e.g. there's no
  libaio-dev package on non-Linux platforms like HURD or kFreeBSD - ).

- You probably want export V = 1 in the debian/rules file otherwise
  make won't show much compiler output. This would address the
  compiler-flags-hidden build warning mentioned on .

Closes: 861554 872321 893778
 fio (3.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Imported upstream version 3.5.
   * Install systemd service file for running fio as a service, disabled
     by default (also see #893778).
   * Install sysvinit script for running fio as a service, disabled by
     default. Thanks to KatolaZ from Devuan project for helpful hint.
     Does not install any symlinks currently (see #894084).
   * patches:
     - Refreshed.
     - fix-ftbfs-with-libmtd.h: Removed. Implemented upstream (also see
     - makefile-hardening: Allow adding hardening options to CPPFLAGS as
     - reproducible-build: Removed. Implemented upstream (also see #893778
       and upstream commit 785e49c659023df1735bff195ad4ba133ebd23a7).
     - genfio-interpreter: Keep /bin/bash as interpreter, no usrmerge (yet).
   * changelog, rules: Removed trailing white spaces as lintian suggests.
   * compat: Switched debhelper compat level from 9 to 11 as lintian and
     debhelper manpage recommend.
   * control:
     - Switched Vcs URLs from Alioth to Salsa as I migrated the repo.
     - Bumped standards version to 4.1.4. No changes needed.
     - Updated build dependency to debhelper version 11 or later.
     - Added build dependency for libnuma1 for all architectures, except
       armhf and armel, where this library is not available (Closes: #861554,
       also see #893778).
     - Added build dependencies bison and flex to enable arithmetic
       calculations in fio jobs (see #893778, also see fio manpage,
     - Added build dependency for the fio GlusterFS engine (see #893778).
     - Disable build dependency for libaio for all platforms except Linux,
       to enable build on non-Linux platforms like Hurd (see #893778).
     - Change binary dependency to python2.7 as all the python scripts use
       this version.
   * rules:
     - Enable verbose build to allow tools like blhc to check for
       hardening flags for compiler and linker (see #893778).
     - Enable all hardening build flags, not just bindnow.
   * docs: Removed tools/, not in upstream source anymore.
   * copyright: Switched copyright format URL to https as Lintian suggests.
   * Implemented all suggestions from sitsofe´s Debian patch comments I
     decided to implement (Closes: #893778).
   * README.Debian: Added a note about fio´s weird usage of units in job
     files and parseable output (Closes: #872321).
