CRUSH-ing the OSD Variance Problem - Tom Byrne, Storage Sysadmin

Tom will be talking about the challenges of keeping OSD utilization variance under control in a large, rapidly growing cluster.

In the past year he has been managing a large and heavily utilized Ceph cluster that has grown from 1500 OSDs to 5000 OSDs (40PB), while maintaining an average OSD utilization of over 50% throughout the year. This has presented some unique challenges, and Tom will discuss these, along with the positive impact the upmap balancer has had on this process, and general advice for growing near full clusters.
