Adding Erasure Coded Pool


Feb 13, 2022
according to this thread its not possible to add an EC pool with the ceph UI yet, is there a roadmap for this to happen or is it going to be a CLI only thing?
We do not have any concrete plans to make it available on the GUI. It is an advanced topic that needs a bit more thought before setting it up. The documentation should be understandable, explaining what each parameter does and what to consider. The CLI examples hopefully make it quite easy to create an EC pool with the parameters adapted to your needs.
