2015-08-14 20:06:01 -0600 asked a question New swift node not being utilized

I have a very small Swift implementation. I had started it with only one swift node with two disks. Everything is working fine. However, I noticed both the disks are almost full. Therefore, I added another swift node with two more disks. I added the two disks of the second node to the rings and distributed the new ring files to both of the storage nodes. All drives are set to a weight of 100. I expected a "bunch" of the data storage on the first node to AUTOMATICALLY move to the second node so that both had an ample amount of free space. After 12 hours I can't see any progress. The first node is still very full and the second node's drives stay at 1% of used space. What am I missing? How do I get the second node working as it should?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

2015-07-25 13:35:54 -0600 asked a question containers don't display

I have an existing OS setup. I have a few projects/users with containers that are working fine. However, if I try to create a new container either in an existing project or in a new project/user account, the container create completes without errors. However, the container never appears. In addition, if I repeat the creation process, Horizon states that the container already exists. In addition, if I use the swift list command from the controller node console it does't list the container.
I am at a loss to what is going on. What do I need to do to get this resolved? Any help would be greatly apprciated

Ok. I have setup the controller node and one object node. The swift seems to work, but the Horizon interface doesn't seem to work well. When I try to login to it it literally takes 5 minutes to login and even option I click on in the interface take a tremendously long time and some of the items d

Would this be acceptable for a production swift implementation? I think I would have two storage nodes. Also, what can I do for fault tolerance or disaster recovery if the controller/keystone node fails? Is horizon necessary and/or recommended?

I am looking to setup OpenStack for the sole purpose of SWIFT object storage ONLY. Any guidance as to how or what parts of the OpenStack architecture that I need to accomplish this?

2015-02-26 14:37:08 -0600 asked a question controller node failure

How to plan an openstack environment so if the controller node is to fail the cloud get be recovered in a reasonable time frame?

What should be done before-hand in case the controller node fails? What steps should be taken to make sure we have mysql database copies, or any other information off of the controller node?

Any other recommendations would be appreciated!

Is there of this information in the GUI or only at the command line at the server console?

2015-02-24 09:41:58 -0600 asked a question swift - how to determine how much object storage space is available

I have built an OpenStack cloud and want to be able to expand my object storage on a proactive basis. I am in need of how to tell how much of the current storage is in use and how much is still available at any given time.
