v0.48.2 ‘argonaut’ stable update released


Another update to the stable “argonaut” series has been released. This fixes a few important bugs in rbd and radosgw and includes a series of changes to upstart and deployment related scripts that will allow the upcoming ‘ceph-deploy’ tool to work with the argonaut release.


  • The default search path for keyring files now includes /etc/ceph/ceph.$name.keyring. If such files are present on your cluster, be aware that by default they may now be used.
  • There are several changes to the upstart init files. These have not been previously documented or recommended. Any existing users should review the changes before upgrading.
  • The ceph-disk-prepare and ceph-disk-active scripts have been updated significantly. These have not been previously documented or recommended. Any existing users should review the changes before upgrading.

Notable changes include:

  • mkcephfs: fix keyring generation for mds, osd when default paths are used
  • radosgw: fix bug causing occasional corruption of per-bucket stats
  • radosgw: workaround to avoid previously corrupted stats from going negative
  • radosgw: fix bug in usage stats reporting on busy buckets
  • radosgw: fix Content-Range: header for objects bigger than 2 GB.
  • rbd: avoid leaving watch acting when command line tool errors out (avoids 30s delay on subsequent operations)
  • rbd: friendlier use of pool/image options for import (old calling convention still works)
  • librbd: fix rare snapshot creation race (could lose a snap when creation is concurrent)
  • librbd: fix discard handling when spanning holes
  • librbd: fix memory leak on discard when caching is enabled
  • objecter: misc fixes for op reordering
  • objecter: fix for rare startup-time deadlock waiting for osdmap
  • ceph: fix usage
  • mon: reduce log noise about check_sub
  • ceph-disk-activate: misc fixes, improvements
  • ceph-disk-prepare: partition and format osd disks automatically
  • upstart: start everyone on a reboot
  • upstart: always update the osd crush location on start if specified in the config
  • config: add /etc/ceph/ceph.$name.keyring to default keyring search path
  • ceph.spec: don’t package crush headers
