Managing OpenStack Object Storage cluster with swift-init

The OpenStack Object Storage is a multi-tenant object storage system. It is highly scalable and can manage large amounts of unstructured data.

Services in our OpenStack Object Storage environment can be managed using the swift-init tool. This tool allows us to control all the daemons in OpenStack Storage in a convenient way. For information on installing and configuring the Swift services or daemons, Installing OpenStack Object Storage.

Getting started

Log in to any OpenStack Object Storage node.

How to achieve it…

The swift-init tool can be used to control any of the running daemons in our OpenStack Storage cluster, which makes it a convenient tool, rather than calling individual init scripts.

Each command can be run with the following commands:

Controlling OpenStack Object Storage proxy
swift-init proxy-server { command }
Controlling OpenStack Object Storage object daemons
swift-init object { command } swift-init object-replicator {command } swift-init object-auditor { command } swift-init object-updater { command }
Controlling OpenStack Object Storage container daemons
swift-init container { command } swift-init container-update { command } swift-init container-replicator { command } swift-init container-auditor { command }
Controlling OpenStack Object Storage account daemons
swift-init account { command } swift-init account-auditor { command } swift-init account-reaper { command } swift-init account-replicator { command }
Controlling all daemons
swift-init all { command }

{ command } can be one of the following:

How it works…

The swift-init tool is a single tool that can be used to manage any of the running OpenStack Object Storage daemons. This allows for consistency in managing our cluster.
