[ceph-users] Difference between "ceph osd reweight" and "ceph osd crush reweight"

Note that 'ceph osd reweight' is not a persistent setting.  When an OSD
gets marked out, the osd weight will be set to 0.  When it gets marked in
again, the weight will be changed to 1.

Because of this 'ceph osd reweight' is a temporary solution.  You should
only use it to keep your cluster running while you're ordering more
