An example of crushmap for 2 Datacenter replication :
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
This working well with pool size=2 (not recommended!) or 3.
If you set pool size more than 3 (and increase the max_size in crush), be careful : you will have n-1 replica on one side and only one on the other datacenter.
If you want to be able to write data even when one of the datacenters is inaccessible, pool min_size should be set at 1 even if size is set to 3. In this case, pay attention to the monitors location.
