Adding OSDs

OSDs are added via a new ceph-osd unit. The unit’s underlying machine is understood to house one or more storage devices.

  1. Ensure that the cluster is in a healthy state. On any MON (such as the leader unit here) run a status check:

    juju ssh ceph-mon/leader sudo ceph status
  2. Add a ceph-osd unit:

    juju add-unit ceph-osd

A specific underlying machine (MAAS node) can be chosen via Juju constraints.

  1. If the new unit’s machine has disks that are not listed by the ceph-osd charm’s osd-devices configuration option then the add-disk action should be used to manually add OSD volumes:

    juju run --wait ceph-osd/5 add-disk osd-devices=/dev/sde

For Juju versions < 3.0, use the juju run-action command.

Alternatively, update the value of the osd-devices option:

   juju config ceph-osd osd-devices='/dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sde'

An existing OSD cannot be removed from the cluster by mistakenly omitting it from the updated value of option osd-devices.
