Although it is extremely unlikely to loose an object stored in Ceph, it is not impossible. When it happens to a Cinder volume based on RBD, knowing which has an object missing will help with disaster recovery. The list_missing command … Continue reading →
An update on my talk submission for the OpenStack summit this year in Paris: my speech about Ceph performance analysis was not chosen by the committee for the official agenda. But at least one piece of good news: Marc’s talk will be part of t…
By default teuthology will clone the ceph-qa-suite repository and use the tasks it contains. If tasks have been modified localy, teuthology can be instructed to use a local directory by inserting something like: suite_path: /home/loic/software/ceph/ceph-qa-suite in the teuthology job yaml … Continue reading →
I’m glad to announce that Ceph is now part of the mirrors iWeb provides.
It is available in both IPv4 and IPv6 by:
rsync on ceph.mirror.iweb.ca::ceph
The mirror provides 4 Gbps of connectivity and is located on the eastern coast of Canada, more precisely in Montreal, Quebec.
Feel free to give it a try and let me know if you see any problems !

In a Ceph cluster with low bandwidth, the root disk of an OpenStack instance became extremely slow during days. When an OSD is scrubbing a placement group, it has a significant impact on performances and this is expected, for a … Continue reading →
For more than a year, Ceph has become increasingly popular and saw several deployments inside and outside OpenStack. For those of you who do not know Ceph is unified, distributed and massively scalable open source storage technology that provides several ways to access and consume your data such as object, block and filesystem. The community and Ceph itself has greatly… Read more →
A datacenter containing three hosts of a non profit Ceph and OpenStack cluster suddenly lost connectivity and it could not be restored within 24h. The corresponding OSDs were marked out manually. The Ceph pool dedicated to this datacenter became unavailable … Continue reading →
End of last year, a new puppet-ceph module was bootstrapped with the ambitious goal to re-unite the dozens of individual efforts. I’m very happy with what we’ve accomplished. We are making progress although our community is mixed, but more importantly, … Continue reading →
The benchmark described for Intel Xeon is run with a Highbank ARMv7 Processor rev 0 (v7l) processor (the maker of the processor was Calxeda ), using the same codebase: The encoding speed is ~450MB/s for K=2,M=1 (i.e. a RAID5 equivalent) … Continue reading →
Today is the second day of the Ceph Developer Summit (CDS) for the Giant and Hammer release. We had already several interesting topics and discussions yesterday on the first day.It’s 01:00 in CEST, so now is the time for you to join if you are interest…
Note: this is only useful for people with access to the Ceph lab. When running a Ceph integration tests using teuthology, it may fail because of a DNS resolution problem with: $ ./virtualenv/bin/teuthology-suite –base ~/software/ceph/ceph-qa-suite \ –suite upgrade/firefly-x \ –ceph … Continue reading →
