How do I know that all of my object storage nodes are working properly?

Hello, I have installed a 4 node openstack, 1 as the controller and proxy server, 1 as compute node, and the other 2 as object storage nodes (swift) which has been added later after installing a 2 node openstack , all are running on virtual boxes in Hyper-V. The openstack version is Newton. Here are some questions, first: How do I make sure that both storage nodes are working properly???? Second: Should I be able to see a sign of storage nodes in my dashboard?? Third: Is there any way that I can change the replication factor?!

I appreciate any help.

For monitoring the health of the cluster, see

There is no API to show storage nodes. Therefore, the dashboard doesn't show them either.

You define the replica count with the ring-builder utility. Recently, it has become possible to change the replica count while the Swift cluster is running. See

Thanks for responding...I'd seen the monitoring tools before, but not satisfying......anyway, the second URL was helpful, thanx.
