2013-06-24 03:48:40 -0500 | answered a question | How to solve broken dependencies for Swift RPM packages? It is highly desired to use one of the packages that already support openstack, which are best tested. https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/SwiftInstall If you use a different package, you will need to deal with the dependency issues. |

2013-05-06 16:44:10 -0500 | answered a question | Dose partition count determine the number of objects a cluster can store? Each partition can store many objects. Swift will naturally balance the available disk space such that when X objects are placed into N partitions, each partition would hold roughly X/N objects. The same partition is than replicated D (E.g. D=3). One common practice advise is to consider what would be the number of hard disks (devices) you will have when the cluster would reach its maximal size - Lets say you will have M hard disks. In such a case, aim for the number of partitions to be bigger than 100*M. So if M is 10000, use a partition power of 24 and if M is 1000 use partition power of 17. |
