The Essex Swift Administrator's Guide provides instructions for managing an OpenStack Swift environment. The guide is meant to compliment the existing [Swift Administrator’s Guide].


The Admin Guide is based on the following software versions:

  • Ubuntu: 12.04
  • Puppet: 2.7.11
  • swift-proxy: 1.4.8+stable+17-0~precise1
  • swift-account: 1.4.8+stable+17-0~precise1
  • swift-container: 1.4.8+stable+17-0~precise1
  • swift-object: 1.4.8+stable+17-0~precise1

Remove a Bad Drive

  1. Comment-out or remove definitions for the bad hard drive from the container, object, account rings of the swift-nodes manifest. Here is an example of commenting-out device sdb from a Swift Storage Node named swift01:

    #@@ring_object_device { "${swift01_local_net_ip}:6000/sdb":
    #  zone        => $swift_zone,
    #  weight      => 1,
    #@@ring_account_device { "${swift01_local_net_ip}:6002/sdb":
    #  zone        => $swift_zone,
    #  weight      => 1,
    #@@ring_container_device { "${swift01_local_net_ip}:6001/sdb":
    #  zone        => $swift_zone,
    #  weight      => 1,
  2. From the Proxy Node, remove the bad drive from the 3 swift rings:

    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/account.builder remove <ip_address>/<device_name>
    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/container.builder remove <ip_address>/<device_name>
    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/object.builder remove <ip_address>/<device_name>
  3. From the Proxy Node, rebalance the Swift rings:

    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/account.builder rebalance
    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/container.builder rebalance
    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/object.builder rebalance
  4. Verify the drive has been removed from the 3 rings:

    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/account.builder
    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/container.builder
    swift-ring-builder /etc/swift/object.builder
  5. Repeat steps 3-5 if you have additional proxy nodes.
