Yes, by default BlueStore reports 1Gb per OSD as used by BlueFS.

Taking a look to your computation I think the ratio OSD/Overhead it's really about 1.1Gb per OSD.
Because I have 9 NVMe OSD alive right now. So about 9.5Gb of overhead.
So I guess this is just it's right behaviour.

[1] Here is a ceph starts on a brand new cluster that has never had any pools created or data or into it at all.  323GB used out of 2.3PB. that's 0.01% overhead, but we're using 10TB disks for this cluster, and the overhead is moreso per osd than per TB.  It is 1.1GB overhead per osd. 34 of the osds are pure nvme and the other 255 have collocated DBs with their WAL on flash.

The used space your string is most likely just osd overhead, but you can double check if there are any orphaned rados objects using up space with a `rados ls`.  Another thing to note is that deleting a pool in ceph is not instant. It goes into garbage collection and is taken care of over time. Most likely you're just looking at osd overhead, though.

$ ceph -s

    Hi Max,

    No that's not normal. 9GB for an empty cluster. Maybe you
    reserved some space or you have other service that's taking the
    space. But It seems way to much for me.

    I don't care of get back those space.
    I just want to know if it's expected or not.
    Because I run several rados bench with the flag |--no-cleanup|

    And maybe I leaved something in the way.

        Hi everybody,

        i deleted everything from the cluster after some test with
        Now I see that there something still in use:

                pools:   0 pools, 0 pgs
                objects: 0 objects, 0 bytes
                usage: *9510 MB used*, 8038 GB / 8048 GB avail

        Is this the overhead of the bluestore journal/wall?
        Or there is something wrong and this should be zero?

    People setting up new clusters also see this, there are
    overhead items and stuff that eat some space
    so it would never be zero. At your place, it would seem it is
    close to 0.1%, so just live with it and move
    on to using your 8TB for what you really needed it to be used for.

    In almost no case will I think that "if only I could get those
    0.1% back and then my cluster would be great

    Storage clusters should probably have something like 10%
    "admin" margins so if ceph warns and
    whines at OSDs being 85% full, then at 75% you should be
    writing orders for more disks and/or more
    storage nodes.

    At that point, regardless of where the "miscalculation" is, or
    where ceph manages to waste
    9500M while you think it should be zero, it will be all but
    impossible to make anything decent with it
    if you were to get those 0.1% back with some magic command.
