Description

The main menu uses block to represent rbd and iscsi but doesn’t make similar distinctions for the file and object use cases. Therefore to standardise the approach the main menu should separate out filesystems as “File”, and use “Object” for rgw interactions.

For example;

File
    Cephfs
    Remote Replication (future feature planned for pacific)
    NFS
Object
    Daemons
    Users
    Buckets
    Remote Replication (RGW multisite would go here)
    NFS (NFS ganesha backed by rgw would go here)

LGTM, but currently "NFS" would be linking to the same page, wouldn't it? Would it make sense to have one toplevel menu "Sharing" or "Services" that would then contain NFS, iSCSI and eventually SMB/CIFS?

#2 Updated by Ernesto Puerta over 2 years ago

You're right, Lenz!

I'll let Paul to say his mind, but I guess that if we are aiming at end to end workflows, I guess here we should guide users through the whole process of creating an NFS exports from scratch: RGW/MDS deployment if none, RGW/CephFS pools creation and initialization, users/buckets/..., quotas, ...

NFS is a problem child :)

It's a good point. I'd opt for "Gateways" as a name, and then iscsi, NFS and eventually CIFS can sit in that category.
