Dzahn, can you assign a priority for this ticket? Is 'normal' appropriate for Swift backend hosts?

That's a good question. It looks like ms-be 17, 18 and 19 can still handle the load but given that it's not just a regular degraded RAID but the whole server is read-only and to err on the side of caution.. i say High and add @fgiunchedi to it. He can tell us if we can lower it back to normal.
