[SOLVED] ceph compression - check setting


Famous Member
May 24, 2012
I am trying to check compression setting on our ceph pool. [ I searched forum and ceph docs, and am sure it is somewhere I'll find after posting this ].

as far as I can remember i followed https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/ceph-bluestore-lz4-compression.38097/#post-206227 post #5 :
ceph osd pool set rbd compression_algorithm lz4
ceph osd pool set rbd compression_mode passive

so my question is:
How can I tell if compression has been set on a pool ?
How can I tell if compression has been set on a pool ?
The 'set' command has a counterpart 'get'. So a 'ceph osd pool get <pool_name> <option_name>' will give you the current value.
