Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Using the RBD backend driver (Ceph Storage) for OpenStack Compute (nova) ephemeral disks applies two additional settings to libvirt: hw_disk_discard : unmap disk_cachemodes : network=writeback This allows reclaiming of unused blocks on the Ceph pool and caching of network writes, which improves the performance for OpenStack Compute ephemeral disks using the RBD driver.

Description Ben Nemec 2015-11-09 12:35:44 EST
Description of problem: According to the Ceph documentation at http://docs.ceph.com/docs/master/rbd/rbd-openstack/ there are some additional Nova options we should be setting when using Ceph as the backend.  I don't see any references to these params in our templates, so they were probably just missed in the initial Ceph implementation.

Two in particular that were noticed when documenting external Ceph are:


It doesn't seem that either of these are required for Ceph to function as the Nova backend, but it may be performing suboptimally when they're not set correctly.

This bug did not make the OSP 8.0 release.  It is being deferred to OSP 10.
