[openstack-dev] [Swift] failure node muting not working

Got it. So Swift will try to enable the muted nodes after 60 seconds by default. Thanks.

Take a look at the proxy config, starting here: https://github.com/openstack/swift/blob/master/etc/proxy-server.conf-sample#L70

The error_suppression_interval and error_suppression_limit control the window you are looking for. With the default values, 10 errors in 60 seconds will prevent the proxy from using that particular storage node for another 60 seconds.
