Summary:
pve-manager/5.3-5/97ae681d (running kernel: 4.15.18-9-pve)
ceph version 12.2.8 (6f01265ca03a6b9d7f3b7f759d8894bb9dbb6840) luminous (stable)
4 nodes (per node: 4 nvme ssd & 2 sas ssd, bluestore) + 1 node with 4 sata ssd
interconnect - 2x 10Gbps
Created pool (512 PGs, replicated 3/2) on sas ssd
On pool created image for lxc-container

In container do copy big file (more then 300GiB) and is after 2-3 minutes write speed is down to 4-10 MiB/s
upload_2019-6-11_13-4-0.png

After end copy in a few hours, write speed is return to high value, but next copy have the same result
And until is present slow write speed, all operations with mapped rbd device have very low speed (I did run fio and dd tests) but utilzation of this rdb device is very low - 1%-3%!

I try to create new pools, create new containers, change privileges on containers - no effect.
I try tune some kernel params - no effect.

Need help!

UPD: attached View attachment conf.tar.gz
UPD: added 1 node with 4 sata ssd

Can you please also post a rados bench?

Also you can check our Ceph benchmark paper and the corresponding test commands.

What specific hardware do the servers have (eg. ssd model, controler, ...)?

Trouble not on osd or pool level.
I think problem have on rbd and map level in lxc-container.

Even just reading the file to /dev/null degrades after a few minutes (in lxc container):
Code:

I was run in parallel one read on host from rbd and other read file in container from same rbd:
In container reading speed was drop down after 42 GiB:
Code:

On host reading speed was still on 149 MB/s:
Code:

Same result after
echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
and read with bs=4M (dd if=/mnt/data/maps/planet-190513.osm.pbf of=/dev/null status=progress bs=4M)
speed in lxc container is drop down after 42GiB read.

Utilization is drop too:

Can you more specific what Hardware do you use?
Maybe your Disks have an cache of about 42G and if this is full, they drop the performance because they now write to the slower MLC instead of SLC.

P.S.: I can't open your file on my Android Smartphone, so it would be nice if your post such things in Code / Spoiler Tags.

SSD models in post https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/ceph-rbd-slow-down-write.55055/#post-253876
If performance is drop on SSD's then utilization must grow. In opposite - ssd and rbd utilization is reduced to minimum.

This trouble not in hw layer, I'm sure of it. I found next:
I increase RAM size for container and performance drop is moved to new size of RAM
And after drop caches - performance is grow up to normal level
Code:
find /mnt/data/maps/cache/coords -exec dd if={} of=/dev/null bs=1M \;

It seems that the reached RAM limit for cached memory in the container is not accepted by the kernel and it tries to write to cache further, but the restriction for the entire occupied container RAM is activated and a small block is released, which is then filled with the reading operation, and so on until the read operation completes...

Perhaps this is due to the container settings:
Code:
lxc.apparmor.profile: unconfined
lxc.cgroup.devices.allow: a
lxc.cap.drop:
lxc.mount.auto: proc:rw sys:rw

Okay, then I will wait for the solution.

Nobody can't help you, if you are not willing to gave them some information they ask for. Maybe your right, maybe there's another guy out there who already solved such a problem and it was a problem with the Hardware. But if you do not want to gave some Infos, you will not find out :)

Thank you. If I consider that the problem is in the hw, I will make a post with this information. At the moment I do not think so.

This is not CEPH trouble.
The problem hidden in cached memory.
If drop caches - the performance is return up until cache is not filled:

How much memory does the node have? And does the behavior change when you put the RBD image onto a different pool?

And please update to the latest packages, eg. currently there is Ceph 12.2.12.
