Each production cluster has a designated cluster lead, who is the primary contact and responsible for that cluster.

The user-visible "services" provided by the clusters are documented in our Service Availability probe: https://gitlab.cern.ch/ai/it-puppet-hostgroup-ceph/-/blob/qa/code/files/sls/ceph-availability-producer.py#L19

The QoS provided by each user-visible cluster is described in OpenStack docs. Cinder volumes available on multiple AZs are of standard and io1 types.

Reviewing a Cluster Status

  1. Check Grafana dashboards for unusual activity, patterns, memory usage:
  • https://filer-carbon.cern.ch/grafana/d/000000001/ceph-dashboard
  • https://filer-carbon.cern.ch/grafana/d/000000108/ceph-osd-mempools
  • https://filer-carbon.cern.ch/grafana/d/uHevna1Mk/ceph-hosts
  • For RGWs: https://filer-carbon.cern.ch/grafana/d/iyLKxjoGk/s3-rgw-perf-dumps
  • For CephFS: * https://filer-carbon.cern.ch/grafana/d/000000111/cephfs-detail
  • etc...
  1. Login to cluster mon and check various things:
  • ceph osd pool ls detail - are the pool flags correct? e.g. nodelete,nopgchange,nosizechange
  • ceph df - assess amount of free space for capacity planning
  • ceph osd crush rule ls, ceph osd crush rule dump - are the crush rules as expected?
  • ceph balancer status - as expected?
  • ceph osd df tree - are the PGs per OSD balanced and a reasonable number, e.g. < 100.
  • ceph osd tree out, ceph osd tree down - are there any OSDs that are not being replaced properly?
  • ceph config dump - is the configuration as expected?
  • ceph telemetry status - check from config if it on, enable it

Clusters' priority

In case of a major incident (e.g., power cuts), revive clusters in the following order:

  1. Beesly (RBD1, main, UPS-3/4), Flax (CephFS, everywhere), Gabe (S3, vault, UPS-1/3)
  2. Vault (RBD2, vault, UPS-1), Levinson (CephFS SSD, vault, UPS-1), Meredith (RBD SSD, main, UPS-2)
  3. Ryan (RBD3, main, UPS-2), CTA (ObjectStore, vault, UPS-1)
  4. Jim, Dwight, Kelly, Pam (currently unused)
  5. Barn, Kopano -- should not go down, as they are in critical power
  6. NetHub -- 2nd network hub, Prevessin, diesel-backed (9/10 racks)
