DESCRIPTION

       ceph-disk  is  a utility that can prepare and activate a disk, partition or directory as a
       Ceph OSD. It is run directly or triggered by ceph-deploy or udev. It can also be triggered
       by other deployment utilities like Chef, Juju, Puppet etc.

       It  actually  automates the multiple steps involved in manual creation and start of an OSD
       into two steps of preparing and activating the OSD by using the  subcommands  prepare  and
       activate.

       ceph-disk  also  automates the multiple steps involved to manually stop and destroy an OSD
       into two steps of deactivating and destroying the OSD by using the subcommands  deactivate
       and destroy.

       The  documentation for each subcommand (prepare, activate, etc.) can be displayed with its
       --help option. For instance ceph-disk prepare --help.

AVAILABILITY

       ceph-disk is part of Ceph, a massively scalable, open-source, distributed storage  system.
