Chapter 8. Monitoring a high availability Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster

When you deploy an overcloud with Red Hat Ceph Storage, Red Hat OpenStack Platform uses the ceph-mon monitor daemon to manage the Ceph cluster. Director deploys the daemon on all Controller nodes.

8.1. Checking Red Hat Ceph monitoring service status

To check the status of the Red Hat Ceph Storage monitoring service, log in to a Controller node and run the service ceph status command.

Procedure

  • Log in to a Controller node and check that the Ceph Monitoring service is running:

    $ sudo service ceph status
    === mon.overcloud-controller-0 ===
    mon.overcloud-controller-0: running {"version":"0.94.1"}

8.2. Checking Red Hat Ceph monitoring configuration

To check the configuration of the Red Hat Ceph Storage monitoring service, log in to a Controller node or a Red Hat Ceph node and open the /etc/ceph/ceph.conf file.

Procedure

  • Log in to a Controller nodes or on a Ceph node and open the /etc/ceph/ceph.conf file to view the monitoring configuration parameters:

    [global]
    osd_pool_default_pgp_num = 128
    osd_pool_default_min_size = 1
    auth_service_required = cephx
    mon_initial_members = overcloud-controller-0,overcloud-controller-1,overcloud-controller-2
    fsid = 8c835acc-6838-11e5-bb96-2cc260178a92
    cluster_network = 172.19.0.11/24
    auth_supported = cephx
    auth_cluster_required = cephx
    mon_host = 172.18.0.17,172.18.0.15,172.18.0.16
    auth_client_required = cephx
    osd_pool_default_size = 3
    osd_pool_default_pg_num = 128
    public_network = 172.18.0.17/24

    This example shows the following information:

    • All three Controller nodes are configured to monitor the Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster with the mon_initial_members parameter.
    • The 172.19.0.11/24 network is configured to provide a communication path between the Controller nodes and the Red Hat Ceph Storage nodes.
    • The Red Hat Ceph Storage nodes are assigned to a separate network from the Controller nodes, and the IP addresses for the monitoring Controller nodes are 172.18.0.15, 172.18.0.16, and 172.18.0.17.

8.3. Checking Red Hat Ceph node status

To check the status of a specific Red Hat Ceph Storage node, log in to the node and run the ceph -s command.

Procedure

  • Log in to the Ceph node and run the ceph -s command:

    # ceph -s
        cluster 8c835acc-6838-11e5-bb96-2cc260178a92
         health HEALTH_OK
         monmap e1: 3 mons at {overcloud-controller-0=172.18.0.17:6789/0,overcloud-controller-1=172.18.0.15:6789/0,overcloud-controller-2=172.18.0.16:6789/0}
                election epoch 152, quorum 0,1,2 overcloud-controller-1,overcloud-controller-2,overcloud-controller-0
         osdmap e543: 6 osds: 6 up, 6 in
          pgmap v1736: 256 pgs, 4 pools, 0 bytes data, 0 objects
                267 MB used, 119 GB / 119 GB avail
                     256 active+clean

    This example output shows that the health parameter value is HEALTH_OK, which indicates that the Ceph node is active and healthy. The output also shows three Ceph monitor services that are running on the three overcloud-controller nodes and the IP addresses and ports of the services.
