I have an Ubuntu 16.04 with a cephfs mount shared with another 2 Ubuntus.
There is a folder inside the cephfs mount that won't answer to any command (ls, cd, rm, du...). So I guess it's corrupted or it contains some corrupted files and I want to definitively delete it.
When I try to remove it with
rm -rf, there is no answer and the session gets completely blocked. Even if I open another terminal and execute
strace -p for that process, it gets also blocked.
I can't stop the cephfs service because there are another shared applications in production that are using it.
I'm suspecting about some kind of tons of files inside that folder that can be affecting the use of the iNodes for it, but
df -i doesn't return me the amount of iNodes used for the ceph mountpoint (Honestly I don't know if this is a normal behaviour)
Is there something safe that I can do to be able to remove that folder without stopping/restarting services?
