I am installing swift with 8TB of hard disk in all 5 servers which is 3 node replication setup. While building ring I am bit confused with the value have to mention in last 3 parameters. Ex. In the document they given swift-ring-builder account.builder create 18 3 1 where 18 represents 2 ^ 18th, the value that the partition is sized to. which is 262144. What this number stands for? Is it represent the size in MB ? if it is for my 8TB setup , what number should I use ? Kindly, Help me with the solution.
