Other Ceph users reported similar problems with rbd + qemu:

The issue is that some rbd clients (e.g. qemu + lirbd, rbd-nbd or rbd-wnbd) do not reuse OSD connections across image mappings, unlike krbd I think.

Decreasing the connection idle timeout (ms_connection_idle_timeout, defaults to 15min) or partitioning the cluster might help but it's less than ideal.

I'll run some rbd-wnbd experiments, tweaking it to use a single process per host instead of one per mounted image. If everything goes well, I'll open a pull request upstream.

Thanks, Lucian
