ceph-mon — ceph monitor daemon

Synopsis

ceph-mon -i monid [ --mon-data mondatapath ]

Description

ceph-mon is the cluster monitor daemon for the Ceph distributed file system. One or more instances of ceph-mon form a Paxos part-time parliament cluster that provides extremely reliable and durable storage of cluster membership, configuration, and state.

The mondatapath refers to a directory on a local file system storing monitor data. It is normally specified via the mon data option in the configuration file.

Options

-f, --foreground
Foreground: do not daemonize after startup (run in foreground). Do not generate a pid file. Useful when run via ceph-run(8).
-d
Debug mode: like -f, but also send all log output to stderr.
--setuser userorgid
Set uid after starting. If a username is specified, the user record is looked up to get a uid and a gid, and the gid is also set as well, unless --setgroup is also specified.
--setgroup grouporgid
Set gid after starting. If a group name is specified the group record is looked up to get a gid.
-c ceph.conf, --conf=ceph.conf
Use ceph.conf configuration file instead of the default /etc/ceph/ceph.conf to determine monitor addresses during startup.
--mkfs

Initialize the mon data directory with seed information to form and initial ceph file system or to join an existing monitor cluster. Three pieces of information must be provided:

·
The cluster fsid. This can come from a monmap (--monmap <path>) or explicitly via --fsid <uuid>.
·
A list of monitors and their addresses. This list of monitors can come from a monmap (--monmap <path>), the mon host configuration value (in ceph.conf or via -m host1,host2,...), or mon addr lines in ceph.conf. If this monitor is to be part of the initial monitor quorum for a new Ceph cluster, then it must be included in the initial list, matching either the name or address of a monitor in the list. When matching by address, either the public addr or public subnet options may be used.
·
The monitor secret key mon.. This must be included in the keyring provided via --keyring <path>.
--keyring
Specify a keyring for use with --mkfs.

Availability

ceph-mon is part of Ceph, a massively scalable, open-source, distributed storage system. Please refer to the Ceph documentation at http://ceph.com/docs for more information.
