[Ceph-community] [ceph-users] rbd format v2 support

Hi Ilya,
Thanks for the reply. I knew that v2 image can be mapped if using default striping parameters without --stripe-unit or --stripe-count.

It is just the rbd performance (IOPS & bandwidth) we tested hasn't met our goal. We found at this point OSDs seemed not to be the bottleneck, so we want to try "fancy striping".
Do you know if there is an approximate ETA for this feature? Or it would be great that you could share some info on tuning rbd performance. Anything will be appreciated.

What you are referring to is called "fancy striping" and it is
unsupported (work is underway but it's been slow going).  However
because v2 images with *default* striping parameters disk format wise
are the same as v1 images, you can map a v2 image provided you didn't
specify custom --stripe-unit or --stripe-count on rbd create.
