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. Please refer to the Ceph documentation at
       http://ceph.com/docs for more information.
