CephRBDMirror CRD

Rook allows creation and updating rbd-mirror daemon(s) through the custom resource definitions (CRDs). RBD images can be asynchronously mirrored between two Ceph clusters. For more information about user management and capabilities see the Ceph docs.

Creating daemons

To get you started, here is a simple example of a CRD to deploy an rbd-mirror daemon.

kind: CephRBDMirror
  name: my-rbd-mirror
  namespace: rook-ceph
  count: 1


This guide assumes you have created a Rook cluster as explained in the main Quickstart guide


If any setting is unspecified, a suitable default will be used automatically.

RBDMirror metadata

  • name: The name that will be used for the Ceph RBD Mirror daemon.
  • namespace: The Kubernetes namespace that will be created for the Rook cluster. The services, pods, and other resources created by the operator will be added to this namespace.

RBDMirror Settings

  • count: The number of rbd mirror instance to run.
  • placement: The rbd mirror pods can be given standard Kubernetes placement restrictions with nodeAffinity, tolerations, podAffinity, and podAntiAffinity similar to placement defined for daemons configured by the cluster CRD..
  • annotations: Key value pair list of annotations to add.
  • labels: Key value pair list of labels to add.
  • resources: The resource requirements for the rbd mirror pods.
  • priorityClassName: The priority class to set on the rbd mirror pods.

Configuring mirroring peers

Configure mirroring peers individually for each CephBlockPool. Refer to the CephBlockPool documentation for more detail.
