Feature #4929: Erasure encoded placement group
EC: flesh out how the ceph tool should be used to manage ec pools and create sub tasks for doing it
Not sure how much of this has been handled already.

Loic pointed out that there's already support to create pools via the ceph tool
Unless I'm misunderstanding the task, this should cover the creation part.
wrt the management part of the task, it seems that nothing can be changed once the pool is create, hence why this is specified on pool creation.
What however appears to be missing is transpiring the pool creation parameters to the user on lspools, although Loic tells me that they're already shown on pool dump.

http://tracker.ceph.com/issues/7146 was created and implemented. There does not seem to be a need for more tools.
Creating a pool is done with the (already modified) ceph osd pool create command. Erasure coded crush rulesets can either be created manually ( the indep behavior was adapted to match the needs of erasure coded pools ) or with the rule create-erasure command which is more convenient from the sysadmin point of view. Chosing the right erasure code plugin and the parameters to configure it is done through the pool properties if fine grain control is needed. Some operations are not available for erasure coded pools ( omap family ) and the user facing interface is an EINVAL error rather than a new command.
