Ceph: Frequent Node Reboots

Submitted by gpmidi on Sun, 01/10/2021 - 15:19

A few of my Ceph nodes with 60-ish disks each were experiencing frequent reboots. Turns out kernel.nmi_watchdog was rebooting it due to disks holding it up under very high load. By turning it off via `echo "kernel.nmi_watchdog=0" > /etc/sysctl.d/99-watchdog.conf` the problem was solved. Although I suspect there are better ways to tune NMI Watchdog to fix this. I'm being lazy.
