Cinder is the block storage service for the Openstack project.

Ceph Storage Backend for Cinder


This charm provides a Ceph storage backend for use with the Cinder
charm; this allows multiple Ceph storage clusters to be associated
with a single Cinder deployment, potentially alongside other storage
backends from other vendors.

To use:

juju deploy cinder
juju deploy -n 3 ceph
juju deploy cinder-ceph
juju add-relation cinder-ceph cinder
juju add-relation cinder-ceph ceph


The cinder-ceph charm allows the replica count for the Ceph storage
pool to be configured. This must be done in advance of relating to
the ceph charm:

juju set cinder-ceph ceph-osd-replication-count=3
juju add-relation cinder-ceph ceph

By default, the replica count is set to 2 replicas. Increasing this
value increases data resilience at the cost of consuming most real
storage in the Ceph cluster.


                            Optionally restrict Ceph key permissions to access pools as required.

                            Defines a relative weighting of the pool as a percentage of the total
amount of data in the Ceph cluster. This effectively weights the number
of placement groups for the pool created to be appropriately portioned
to the amount of data expected. For example, if the ephemeral volumes
for the OpenStack compute instances are expected to take up 20% of the
overall configuration then this value would be specified as 20. Note -
it is important to choose an appropriate value for the pool weight as
this directly affects the number of placement groups which will be
created for the pool. The number of placement groups for a pool can
only be increased, never decreased - so it is important to identify the
percent of data that will likely reside in the pool.

                            This value dictates the number of replicas ceph must make of any
object it stores withing the cinder rbd pool. Of course, this only
applies if using Ceph as a backend store. Note that once the cinder
rbd pool has been created, changing this value will not have any
effect (although it can be changed in ceph by manually configuring
your ceph cluster).

                            Setting this to True will configure services to log to syslog.
