Configuring a Ceph FUSE client

While most clients will use the native kernel ceph client, there may be times where you want to use the FUSE client for rate limiting or

To mount the manila share created previously you need to edit the three files listed below :

i. /etc/ceph/ceph.conf

admin socket = /var/run/ceph/$cluster-$name-$pid.asok
client reconnect stale = true
debug client = 0/2
fuse big writes = true
mon host =,,,,149    .165.158.86:6789

where the mon host information is provided to you as part of the manila share.

ii. /etc/fstab

Add the following:

none    /mnt/ceph fuse.ceph$accessTo,ceph.conf=/etc/ceph/ceph.conf,ceph.client_moun    tpoint=$volumePath,x-systemd.device-timeout=30,x-systemd.mount-timeout=30,noatime,_netdev,rw 0       2

Replace $accessTo with the arbitrary name you chose in step 3 above and $volumePath with ( /volume/_no-group/…) that is also in the share information that you created.

It should look something like this:

none    /mnt/ceph fuse.ceph,ceph.conf=/etc/ceph/ceph.conf,ceph.client_mo    untpoint=/volumes/_nogroup/fe4f8ad4-2877-4e23-b5d3-46eb8476750b/ab404bac-9584-45f4-8a34-92dfc6    1fbb98,x-systemd.device-timeout=30,x-systemd.mount-timeout=30,noatime,_netdev,rw 0   2

iii. /etc/ceph/ceph.client.$accessTo.keyring

Add the following:

    key = $accessKey

Replace $accessTo with the arbitrary name you chose in step 3 and $accessKey with the Acce ss Key generated in step 4

Your file should look something like this :

    key = AQAHfhZiwTf/NhAAT5ChE4tDXt3Nq1NyiURbMQ==
