Ceph peering process stalls when an OSD is down, and the cluster won't recover to a healthy state, why?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • During the peering process Ceph may require information from an OSD which is currently down or has been removed from the cluster.

  • When this happens Ceph will wait for the osd to return and the peering process will stall, leaving placement groups in an inactive state.
