Ceph REST API

Ceph comes with powerful REST API interface access, which allows you to administer your cluster programmatically. It can run as a WSGI application or as a standalone server, listening on the default port 5000. It provides a similar kind of functionality to that of the Ceph command-line tool through an HTTP-accessible interface. Commands are submitted as HTTP GET and PUT requests, and the results can be returned in the JSON, XML, and text formats. In this recipe, I will quickly show you how to set up the Ceph REST API and interact with it.
