Hello, I have the same problem and I wanted to make a few remarks.

One of the main advice on pg count in the docs is: if you have less than 5 
osds, use 128 pgs per pool. This kind of rule of thumb is really what you are 
looking for when you begin. But this one is very misleading, especially if you 
have 3 or 4 osds. Pgcalc may be the right tool, but it's hard to understand 
when you begin. I think it would be helpfull to lower the pg per pool advice to 
64.

My other point is that the vast majority of advices and tutorials on this issue 
tells you to raise the warning threshold (sometimes to thousands of pgs per 
osds) or remove it entirely. That is very tempting , but the official docs 
never hints at when it's safe to do so. Do I need RAM? CPU? IOPS?
