Managing the OpenStack Object Storage cluster with swift-init


Services in our OpenStack Object Storage environment can be managed using the swift-init tool. This tool allows us to control all the daemons in OpenStack Object Storage in a convenient way.

Getting ready

Login to any OpenStack Object Storage node. If using the vagrant environment, these can be accessed by using the following commands:

vagrant ssh swift-proxy
vagrant ssh swift-01
vagrant ssh swift-02
vagrant ssh swift-03
vagrant ssh swift-04
vagrant ssh swift-05

How to do it...

The swift-init tool can be used to control any of the running daemons in our OpenStack Object Storage cluster rather than calling individual init scripts, which makes it a convenient tool.

To control OpenStack Object Storage proxy, use the following command:

swift-init proxy-server { command }
