Object Storage Daemons (OSDs) can fail due to an internal data inconsistency

This document (7024257) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Enterprise Storage 6
Ceph version 14.2.4


With Ceph 14.2.4 OSDs can fail due to an internal data inconsistency. This poses no immediate threat to data availability as Ceph will automatically re-replicate the data from the remaining OSDs to other OSDs.


If OSDs are seen to be crashing and not coming up again (marked as out and down) please check the respective OSD log for the following messages:

... 3 rocksdb: [db/] Compaction error: Corruption: block checksum mismatch:...
... block checksum mismatch: expected XXXXXXXXXX, got XXXXXXXXXX in db/XXXXXX.sst offset ...
... In function 'void AllocatorLevel02<T>::_mark_allocated(uint64_t, uint64_t) [with L1 = AllocatorLevel01Loose; uint64_t = long unsigned int]'
FAILED ceph_assert(available >= allocated) ...

If these messages appear in the OSD logs of the out OSD please re-deploy the OSD as soon as possible. Refer to the relevant SES 6 online documentation on how to accomplish this.

NOTE: Instead of the above procedure to re-create the OSD, it can be first attempted to simply run the below command for the affected OSD. If the OSD still crashes, it will be needed to follow the replace procedure:

ceph-osd -i $ID --mkfs

Replace $ID with the OSD number of the relevant OSD, for example if the affected OSD is OSD.13 the command will be:

ceph-osd -i 13 --mkfs


This is caused by a bug in the Ceph Nautilus code, the root cause is however still under investigation.
