Hello, I played around with rbd caching by activating "Writeback" mode in proxmox6. This really helps for write performance so I would like to use it but the documenattion says that a possible danger is a power outage.
Now I have a battery backup but you never know if the outage is just a minute or an hour, and batteries would not keep the servers up for more that say 15min. So what I thought about is to enable rbd caching but when a power outage occurs I would like to automatically disable it. Using proxmox this requires a reboot of the VM so this is no option. But perhaps I could set globally a ceph variable eg "rbd cache size" to "0" and thus effectively would disable writeback caching. Should this work? Another question about "Wrtiteback" rbd caching is if I should also enable it for disks with a lvm striped over 4 rbd images? Each striped LVs has a filesystem on top. Is it also advisable to use rbd caching in this scenario as it is for a single disk?
