ceph-conf – ceph conf file tool¶
ceph-conf is a utility for getting information from a ceph
configuration file. As with most Ceph programs, you can specify which
Ceph configuration file to use with the
Note that unlike other ceph tools, ceph-conf will only read from
config files (or return compiled-in default values)–it will not
fetch config values from the monitor cluster. For this reason it is
recommended that ceph-conf only be used in legacy environments
that are strictly config-file based. New deployments and tools should
instead rely on either querying the monitor explicitly for
ceph config get <daemon> <option>) or use
daemons themselves to fetch effective config options (e.g.,
ceph-osd -i 123 --show-config-value osd_data). The latter option
has the advantages of drawing from compiled-in defaults (which
occasionally vary between daemons), config files, and the monitor’s
config database, providing the exact value that that daemon would be
using if it were started.
ceph-conf performs one of the following actions:
list all sections in the configuration file.
list the sections with the given prefix. For example,
--list-sections monwould list all sections beginning with
search and print the specified configuration setting. Note:
--lookupis the default action. If no other actions are given on the command line, we will default to doing a lookup.

To find out what value osd 0 will use for the “osd data” option:
ceph-conf -c foo.conf --name osd.0 --lookup "osd data"
To find out what value will mds a use for the “log file” option:
ceph-conf -c foo.conf --name mds.a "log file"
To list all sections that begin with “osd”:
ceph-conf -c foo.conf -l osd
To list all sections:
ceph-conf -c foo.conf -L
To print the path of the “keyring” used by “client.0”:
ceph-conf --name client.0 -r -l keyring
