Chapter 10. Using NVMe with LVM Optimally

  1. Summary

    The procedures below demonstrate how to deploy Ceph for Object Gateway usage optimally when using high speed NVMe based SSDs (this applies to SATA SSDs too). Journals and bucket indexes will be placed together on high speed storage devices, which can increase performance compared to having all journals on one device. This configuration requires setting osd_scenario to lvm.

    Procedures for two example configurations are provided:

    • One NVMe device and at least four HDDs using one bucket index: One NVMe device
    • Two NVMe devices and at least four HDDs using two bucket indexes: Two NVMe devices
  2. Details

    The most basic Ceph setup uses the osd_scenario setting of collocated. This stores the OSD data and its journal on one storage device together (they are "co-located"). Typical server configurations include both HDDs and SSDs. Since HDDs are usually larger than SSDs, in a collocated configuration to utitlize the most storage space an HDD would be chosen, putting both the OSD data and journal on it alone. However, the journal should ideally be on a faster SSD. Another option is using the osd_scenario setting of non-collocated. This allows configuration of dedicated devices for journals, so you can put the OSD data on HDDs and the journals on SSDs.

    In addition to OSD data and journals, when using Object Gateway a bucket index needs to be stored on a device. In this case Ceph is often configured so that HDDs hold the OSD data, one SSD holds the journals, and another SSD holds the bucket indexes. This can create highly imbalanced situations where the SSD with all the journals becomes saturated while the SSD with bucket indexes is underutilized.

    The solution is to set osd_scenario to lvm and use Logical Volume Manager (LVM) to divide up single SSD devices for more than one purpose. This allows journals and bucket indexes to exist side by side on a single device. Most importantly, it allows journals to exist on more than one SSD, spreading the intense IO data transfer of the journals across more than one device.

    The normal Ansible playbooks provided by the ceph-ansible RPM used to install Ceph (site.yml, osds.yml, etc.) don’t support using one device for more than one purpose.

    In the future the normal Ansible playbooks will support using one device for more than one purpose. In the meantime the playbooks lv-create.yml and lv-vars.yaml are being provided to facilitate creating the required Logicial Volumes (LVs) for optimal SSD usage. After lv-create.yml is run site.yml can be run normally and it will use the newly created LVs.

    Important

    These procedures only apply to the FileStore storage backend, not the newer BlueStore storage backend.

10.1. Using One NVMe Device

Follow this procedure to deploy Ceph for Object Gateway usage with one NVMe device.

10.1.1. Purge Any Existing Ceph cluster

If Ceph is already configured, purge it in order to start over. An ansible playbook file named purge-cluster.yml is provided for this purpose.

$ ansible-playbook purge-cluster.yml

For more information on how to use purge-cluster.yml see Purging a Ceph Cluster by Using Ansible in the Installation Guide for Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Installation Guide for Ubuntu depending on your chosen Linux distribution.

Important

Purging the cluster may not be enough to prepare the servers for redeploying Ceph using the following procedures. Any file system, GPT, RAID, or other signatures on storage devices used by Ceph may cause problems. Instructions to remove any signatures using wipefs are provided under Run The lv-create.yml Ansible Playbook.

10.1.2. Configure The Cluster for Normal Installation

Setting aside any NVMe and/or LVM considerations, configure the cluster as you would normally but stop before running ansible-playbook site.yml. Afterwards, the cluster installation configuration will be adjusted specifically for optimal NVMe/LVM usage to support the Object Gateway. Only at that time should ansible-playbook site.yml be run.

To configure the cluster for normal installation consult the Installation Guide for Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Installation Guide for Ubuntu depending on your chosen Linux distribution. In particular, complete the steps in Installing a Red Hat Ceph Storage Cluster through Step 9 creating an Ansible log directory. Stop before Step 10 when ansible-playbook site.yml is run.

Important

Do not run ansible-playbook site.yml until all the steps after this and before Install Ceph for NVMe and Verify Success have been completed.

10.1.3. Identify The NVMe and HDD Devices

Use lsblk to identify the NVMe and HDD devices connected to the server. Example output from lsblk is listed below:

In this example the following raw block devices will be used:

NVMe devices

  1. /dev/nvme0n1

HDD devices

  1. /dev/sdc
  2. /dev/sdd
  3. /dev/sde
  4. /dev/sdf

The file lv_vars.yaml configures logical volume creation on the chosen devices. It creates journals on NVMe, an NVMe based bucket index, and HDD based OSDs. The actual creation of logical volumes is initiated by lv-create.yml, which reads lv_vars.yaml.

That file should only have one NVMe device referenced in it at a time. For information on using Ceph with two NVMe devices optimally see Using Two NVMe Devices.

10.1.4. Add The Devices to lv_vars.yaml

  1. As root, navigate to the /usr/share/ceph-ansible/ directory:

    # cd /usr/share/ceph-ansible
  2. As root, copy the lv_vars.yaml Ansible playbook to the current directory:

    # cp infrastructure-playbooks/vars/lv_vars.yaml .
  3. Edit the file so it includes the following lines:

    nvme_device: /dev/nvme0n1
    hdd_devices:
      - /dev/sdc
      - /dev/sdd
      - /dev/sde
      - /dev/sdf

10.1.5. Run The lv-create.yml Ansible Playbook

The purpose of the lv-create.yml playbook is to create logical volumes for the object gateway bucket index, and journals, on a single NVMe. It does this by using osd_scenario=lvm as opposed to using osd_scenario=non-collocated. The lv-create.yml Ansible playbook makes it easier to configure Ceph in this way by automating some of the complex LVM creation and configuration.

  1. As root, copy the lv-create.yml Ansible playbook to the current directory:

    # cp infrastructure-playbooks/lv-create.yml .
  2. Ensure the storage devices are raw

    Before running lv-create.yml to create the logical volumes on the NVMe devices and HDD devices, ensure there are no file system, GPT, RAID, or other signatures on them.

    If they are not raw, when you run lv-create.yml it may fail with the following error:

    device /dev/sdc excluded by a filter
  3. Wipe storage device signatures (optional)

    If the devices have signatures you can use wipefs to erase them.

    An example of using wipefs to erase the devices is shown below:

    [root@c04-h01-6048r ~]# wipefs -a /dev/sdc
    /dev/sdc: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x00000200 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdc: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x1d19ffffe00 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdc: 2 bytes were erased at offset 0x000001fe (PMBR): 55 aa
    /dev/sdc: calling ioclt to re-read partition table: Success
    [root@c04-h01-6048r ~]# wipefs -a /dev/sdd
    /dev/sdd: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x00000200 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdd: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x1d19ffffe00 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdd: 2 bytes were erased at offset 0x000001fe (PMBR): 55 aa
    /dev/sdd: calling ioclt to re-read partition table: Success
    [root@c04-h01-6048r ~]# wipefs -a /dev/sde
    /dev/sde: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x00000200 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sde: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x1d19ffffe00 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sde: 2 bytes were erased at offset 0x000001fe (PMBR): 55 aa
    /dev/sde: calling ioclt to re-read partition table: Success
    [root@c04-h01-6048r ~]# wipefs -a /dev/sdf
    /dev/sdf: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x00000200 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdf: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x1d19ffffe00 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdf: 2 bytes were erased at offset 0x000001fe (PMBR): 55 aa
    /dev/sdf: calling ioclt to re-read partition table: Success
  4. Run the lv-teardown.yml Ansible playbook:

    Always run lv-teardown.yml before running lv-create.yml:

    As root, copy the lv-teardown.yml Ansible playbook to the current directory:

    # cp infrastructure-playbooks/lv-teardown.yml .

    Run the lv-teardown.yml Ansible playbook:

    $ ansible-playbook lv-teardown.yml
    Warning

    Proceed with caution when running the lv-teardown.yml Ansible script. It destroys data. Ensure you have backups of any important data.

  5. Run the lv-create.yml Ansible playbook:

    $ ansible-playbook lv-create.yml
  6. Once lv-create.yml completes without error continue to the next section to verify it worked properly.

10.1.6. Verify LVM Configuration

  1. Review lv-created.log

    Once the lv-create.yml Ansible playbook completes successfully, configuration information will be written to lv-created.log. Later this information will be copied into group_vars/osds.yml. Open lv-created.log and look for information similar to the below example:

      - data: ceph-bucket-index-1
        data_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
        journal: ceph-journal-bucket-index-1-nvme0n1
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sdc
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sdc
        journal: ceph-journal-sdc
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sdd
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sdd
        journal: ceph-journal-sdd
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sde
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sde
        journal: ceph-journal-sde
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sdf
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sdf
        journal: ceph-journal-sdf
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
  2. Review LVM configuration

    One journal LV per HDD placed on NVMe (four LVs on /dev/nvme0n1)

    One data LV per HDD placed on each HDD (one LV per HDD)

    One journal LV for bucket index placed on NVMe (one LV on /dev/nvme0n1)

    One data LV for bucket index placed on NVMe (one LV on /dev/nvme0n1)

    The LVs can be seen in lsblk and lvscan output. In the example explained above, there should be ten LVs for Ceph. As a rough sanity check you could count the Ceph LVs to make sure there are at least ten, but ideally you would make sure the appropriate LVs were created on the right storage devices (NVMe vs HDD).

10.1.7. Edit The osds.yml and all.yml Ansible Playbooks

  1. Copy the previously mentioned configuration information from lv-created.log into group_vars/osds.yml under the lvm_volumes: line.
  2. Set osd_scenario: to lvm:

    osd_scenario: lvm
  3. Set osd_objectstore: filestore in all.yml and osds.yml.

    The osds.yml file should look similar to this:

    # Variables here are applicable to all host groups NOT roles
    
    osd_objectstore: filestore
    osd_scenario: lvm
    lvm_volumes:
      - data: ceph-bucket-index-1
        data_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1

        journal: ceph-journal-sdf
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1

10.1.8. Install Ceph for NVMe and Verify Success

After configuring Ceph for installation to use NVMe with LVM optimally, install it.

  1. Run the site.yml Ansible playbook to install Ceph

    $ ansible-playbook -v -i hosts site.yml
  2. Verify Ceph is running properly after install completes

    # ceph -s
    # ceph osd tree

    Example ceph -s output showing Ceph is running properly:

     # ceph -s
      cluster:

    Ceph is now set up to use one NVMe device and LVM optimally for Object Storage Gateway.

10.2. Using Two NVMe Devices

Follow this procedure to deploy Ceph for Object Gateway usage with two NVMe devices.

10.2.1. Purge Any Existing Ceph Cluster

If Ceph is already configured, purge it in order to start over. An ansible playbook file named purge-cluster.yml is provided for this purpose.

$ ansible-playbook purge-cluster.yml

For more information on how to use purge-cluster.yml see Purging a Ceph Cluster by Using Ansible in the Installation Guide for Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Installation Guide for Ubuntu depending on your chosen Linux distribution.

Important

Purging the cluster may not be enough to prepare the servers for redeploying Ceph using the following procedures. Any file system, GPT, RAID, or other signatures on storage devices used by Ceph may cause problems. Instructions to remove any signatures using wipefs are provided under Run The lv-create.yml Ansible Playbook.

10.2.2. Configure The Cluster for Normal Installation

Setting aside any NVMe and/or LVM considerations, configure the cluster as you would normally but stop before running ansible-playbook site.yml. Afterwards, the cluster installation configuration will be adjusted specifically for optimal NVMe/LVM usage to support the Object Gateway. Only at that time should ansible-playbook site.yml be run.

To configure the cluster for normal installation consult the Installation Guide for Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Installation Guide for Ubuntu depending on your chosen Linux distribution. In particular, complete the steps in Installing a Red Hat Ceph Storage Cluster through Step 9 creating an Ansible log directory. Stop before Step 10 when ansible-playbook site.yml is run.

Important

Do not run ansible-playbook site.yml until all the steps after this and before Install Ceph for NVMe and Verify Success have been completed.

10.2.3. Identify The NVMe and HDD Devices

Use lsblk to identify the NVMe and HDD devices connected to the server. Example output from lsblk is listed below:

nvme1n1                        259:0    0 745.2G  0 disk

In this example the following raw block devices will be used:

NVMe devices

  1. /dev/nvme0n1
  2. /dev/nvme1n1

HDD devices

  1. /dev/sdc
  2. /dev/sdd
  3. /dev/sde
  4. /dev/sdf

The file lv_vars.yaml configures logical volume creation on the chosen devices. It creates journals on NVMe, an NVMe based bucket index, and HDD based OSDs. The actual creation of logical volumes is initiated by lv-create.yml, which reads lv_vars.yaml.

That file should only have one NVMe device referenced in it at a time. It should also only reference the HDD devices to be associated with that particular NVMe device. For OSDs that contain more than one NVMe device edit lv_vars.yaml for each NVMe and run lv-create.yml repeatedly for each NVMe. This is explained below.

In the example this means lv-create.yml will first be run on /dev/nvme0n1 and then again on /dev/nvme1n1.

10.2.4. Add The Devices to lv_vars.yaml

  1. As root, navigate to the /usr/share/ceph-ansible/ directory:

    # cd /usr/share/ceph-ansible
  2. As root, copy the lv_vars.yaml Ansible playbook to the current directory:

    # cp infrastructure-playbooks/vars/lv_vars.yaml .
  3. For the first run edit the file so it includes the following lines:

    nvme_device: /dev/nvme0n1
    hdd_devices:
      - /dev/sdc
      - /dev/sdd

The journal size, number of bucket indexes, their sizes and names, and the bucket indexes' journal names can all be adjusted in lv_vars.yaml. See the comments within the file for more information.

10.2.5. Run The lv-create.yml Ansible Playbook

The purpose of the lv-create.yml playbook is to create logical volumes for the object gateway bucket index, and journals, on a single NVMe. It does this by using osd_scenario=lvm as opposed to using osd_scenario=non-collocated. The lv-create.yml Ansible playbook makes it easier to configure Ceph in this way by automating some of the complex LVM creation and configuration.

  1. As root, copy the lv-create.yml Ansible playbook to the current directory:

    # cp infrastructure-playbooks/lv-create.yml .
  2. Ensure the storage devices are raw

    Before running lv-create.yml to create the logical volumes on the NVMe devices and HDD devices, ensure there are no file system, GPT, RAID, or other signatures on them.

    If they are not raw, when you run lv-create.yml it may fail with the following error:

    device /dev/sdc excluded by a filter
  3. Wipe storage device signatures (optional)

    If the devices have signatures you can use wipefs to erase them.

    An example of using wipefs to erase the devices is shown below:

    [root@c04-h01-6048r ~]# wipefs -a /dev/sdc
    /dev/sdc: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x00000200 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdc: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x1d19ffffe00 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdc: 2 bytes were erased at offset 0x000001fe (PMBR): 55 aa
    /dev/sdc: calling ioclt to re-read partition table: Success
    [root@c04-h01-6048r ~]# wipefs -a /dev/sdd
    /dev/sdd: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x00000200 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdd: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x1d19ffffe00 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdd: 2 bytes were erased at offset 0x000001fe (PMBR): 55 aa
    /dev/sdd: calling ioclt to re-read partition table: Success
    [root@c04-h01-6048r ~]# wipefs -a /dev/sde
    /dev/sde: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x00000200 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sde: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x1d19ffffe00 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sde: 2 bytes were erased at offset 0x000001fe (PMBR): 55 aa
    /dev/sde: calling ioclt to re-read partition table: Success
    [root@c04-h01-6048r ~]# wipefs -a /dev/sdf
    /dev/sdf: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x00000200 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdf: 8 bytes were erased at offset 0x1d19ffffe00 (gpt): 45 46 49 20 50 41 52 54
    /dev/sdf: 2 bytes were erased at offset 0x000001fe (PMBR): 55 aa
    /dev/sdf: calling ioclt to re-read partition table: Success
  4. Run the lv-teardown.yml Ansible playbook:

    Always run lv-teardown.yml before running lv-create.yml:

    As root, copy the lv-teardown.yml Ansible playbook to the current directory:

    # cp infrastructure-playbooks/lv-teardown.yml .

    Run the lv-teardown.yml Ansible playbook:

    $ ansible-playbook lv-teardown.yml
    Warning

    Proceed with caution when running the lv-teardown.yml Ansible script. It destroys data. Ensure you have backups of any important data.

  5. Run the lv-create.yml Ansible playbook:

    $ ansible-playbook lv-create.yml

10.2.6. Copy First NVMe LVM Configuration

  1. Review lv-created.log

    Once the lv-create.yml Ansible playbook completes successfully, configuration information will be written to lv-created.log. Open lv-created.log and look for information similar to the below example:

      - data: ceph-bucket-index-1
        data_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
        journal: ceph-journal-bucket-index-1-nvme0n1
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sdc
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sdc
        journal: ceph-journal-sdc
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sdd
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sdd
        journal: ceph-journal-sdd
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
  2. Copy this information into group_vars/osds.yml under lvm_volumes:.

10.2.7. Run The lv-create.yml Playbook on NVMe device two

The following instructions are abbreviated steps to set up a second NVMe device. Consult the related steps above for further context if needed.

  1. Modify lv-vars.yaml to use the second NVMe and associated HDDs.

    Following the previous example, lv-vars.yaml will now have the following devices set:

    nvme_device: /dev/nvme1n1
    hdd_devices:
      - /dev/sde
      - /dev/sdf
  2. Run lv-teardown.yml:

    $ ansible-playbook lv-teardown.yml
  3. Run lv-create.yml again

    $ ansible-playbook lv-create.yml

10.2.8. Copy Second NVMe LVM Configuration

  1. Review lv-created.log

    Once the lv-create.yml Ansible playbook completes successfully, configuration information will be written to lv-created.log. Open lv-created.log and look for information similar to the below example:

      - data: ceph-bucket-index-1
        data_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme1n1
        journal: ceph-journal-bucket-index-1-nvme1n1
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme1n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sde
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sde
        journal: ceph-journal-sde
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme1n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sdf
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sdf
        journal: ceph-journal-sdf
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme1n1
  2. Copy this information into group_vars/osds.yml under the already entered information under lvm_volumes:.

10.2.9. Verify LVM Configuration

  1. Review LVM Configuration

    Based on the example of two NVMe device and four HDDs the following Logical Volumes (LVs) should be created:

    One journal LV per HDD placed on both NVMe devices (two LVs on /dev/nvme0n1, two on /dev/nvme1n1)

    One data LV per HDD placed on each HDD (one LV per HDD)

    One journal LV per bucket index placed on NVMe (one LV on /dev/nvme0n1, one LV on /dev/nvme1n1)

    One data LV per bucket index placed on both NVMe devices (one LV on /dev/nvme0n1, one LV on /dev/nvme1n1)

    The LVs can be seen in lsblk and lvscan output. In the example explained above, there should be twelve LVs for Ceph. As a rough sanity check you could count the Ceph LVs to make sure there are at least twelve, but ideally you would make sure the appropriate LVs were created on the right storage devices (NVMe vs HDD).

10.2.10. Edit The osds.yml and all.yml Ansible Playbooks

  1. Set osd_objectstore to filestore

    In addition to adding the second set of information from lv-create.log into osds.yml, osd_objectstore also needs to be set to filestore in both the osds.yml and all.yml files.

    The line should look like this in both osds.yml and all.yml:

    osd_objectstore: filestore
  2. Set osd_scenario to lvm in osds.yml

    # Variables here are applicable to all host groups NOT roles
    
    osd_objectstore: filestore
    osd_scenario: lvm
    lvm_volumes:
      - data: ceph-bucket-index-1
        data_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
        journal: ceph-journal-bucket-index-1-nvme0n1
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme0n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sdc
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sdc

        data_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme1n1
        journal: ceph-journal-bucket-index-1-nvme1n1
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme1n1
      - data: ceph-hdd-lv-sde
        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sde

        data_vg: ceph-hdd-vg-sdf
        journal: ceph-journal-sdf
        journal_vg: ceph-nvme-vg-nvme1n1

10.2.11. Install Ceph for NVMe and Verify Success

  1. Run the site.yml Ansible playbook to install Ceph

    $ ansible-playbook -v -i hosts site.yml
  2. Verify Ceph is running properly after install completes

    # ceph -s
    # ceph osd tree

    Example ceph -s output showing Ceph is running properly:

    # ceph -s
      cluster:
        id:     9ba22f4c-b53f-4c49-8c72-220aaf567c2b
