This alert fires when the Ceph cluster utilization is close to 80% of the cluster capacity. This will prevent rebalance operations from completing.

To resolve this alert, unused data should be deleted or the cluster size must be increased.

Steps for debugging

See the how-to on scaling a PVC-based Ceph cluster for instructions to resize the cluster.
