[ceph-users] One OSD misbehaving (spinning 100% CPU, delayed ops)

# ps axHo %cpu,stat,pid,tid,pgid,ppid,comm,wchan | grep ceph-osd

To find the actual thread that is using 100% CPU.

# for x in `seq 1 5`; do gdb -batch -p [PID] -ex "thr appl all bt";
echo; done > /tmp/osd.stack.dump

Then look at the stacks for the thread that was using all the CPU and
see what it was doing at the time.

Note that you may need to install debuginfo for ceph to see meaningful
stack traces. How you go about this is dependant on the distro you are
