Replying in pve-user not to bother ceph-users with Proxmox especific stuff.

Is Jewel officially supported in Proxmox? I didn't see any notice about 
this here nor in release notes.

Also, seems new Ceph_server suggested specs are a bit high on some 
fronts, and lacking in others. Maybe the problem is you're describing 
the lab setup in that section?:

- 10G network will be overkill if using magnetic drives for OSD storage, 
if you don't have tens of OSD per server. We have various setups with 
only 1G network that work like a charm, even in one cluster with one SSD 
OSD disks per server, we're not able to saturate 1G link.

- I don't think it is wise to recommend Intel SSD DC S3520 drives for 
production use. They have very low warranted endurance. S3610 drives 
aren't much pricier and offer x10 times the endurance.

Also, fast CPU is a must if OSDs are SSD; if using many magnetic OSDs 
maybe having more cores is better than more Ghz.

Again, I think the problem is you're describing the test lab setup in 
the recommended hardware section?
