.Scrub processes can now be disabled during recovery

A new option `osd_scrub_during_recovery` has been added with this release. Setting this option to `false` in the Ceph configuration file disables starting new scrub processes during recovery. As a result, the speed of the recovery is enhanced.

Description Tupper Cole 2015-03-11 17:53:29 UTC
Description of problem:Manually suspending scrubs and deep-scubs seems to improve backfill, recovery, rebalancing seems to enhance speed and reduce the number of slow requests logged. A method to make this the default behavior is desirable to customers that suffer poor performance during these operations is requested. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Firefly

How reproducible:Consistent behavior

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add, remove OSDs during scrub operations.

This is a committed Tufnell feature.

Comment 2 Anthony D'Atri 2015-06-02 17:57:51 UTC
Thanks.  What's the timeline for Tufnell?  T seems a long ways down the alphabet, does the change from the cephalopod naming scheme to Spinal Tap skip a bunch of letters?

Comment 3 Neil Levine 2015-06-02 18:25:48 UTC
The Cephalopod names refer to the upstream, community releases which downstream is based.  

Tufnell is the codename for Red Hat Ceph Storage v2.0 - ie the downstream product. This will likely be based on Ceph v10 (Jewel) due out later this year. Tufnell is likely to arrive shortly after in Q1 2016.

Comment 4 Anthony D'Atri 2015-06-02 18:40:54 UTC
Ah, gotcha, thanks.  Had heard something about community and RCS forking but had not known of the naming roadmap.

Hi David,

I’m proposing to add this BZ to the 2.3 release notes. If you agree, could you set the “Doc Type” and “Doc Text” fields?


Comment 11 Parikshith 2017-05-25 04:04:14 UTC

When Recovery/backfill operation starts, will the scrubbing be suspended for scheduled scrub or manual scrub(will manual scrub override it?) or both?

Comment 16 John Poelstra 2017-05-31 15:11:17 UTC
discussed at program meeting, nobody is clear what should happen to this bug for 2.3 ... Neil to discuss with engineering and figure out next steps

Comment 19 Parikshith 2017-06-01 11:37:40 UTC
As per the clarification given I ran following steps:

1. Started long recovery and ran scrub/deep scrub on several osds
2. Monitored cluster status and "ceph pg dump", found no PGs both recovering and scrubbing.

Comment 20 David Zafman 2017-06-13 01:22:30 UTC
This has now been verified so I believe that any issues from me have been resolved.
