Subject [GitHub] brooklyn-server pull request: SoftLayer VLAN customizer
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2016 16:36:17 GMT
Github user ahgittin commented on the pull request:
    static caches are bad!  :)  the right impl i think would be to search through known locations
to look for locations with scope and store the vlan id's on that.  that would also allow us
to resize to 0 then back out, and we'll get a new vlan id.  however that may be hard.
    could we note that preferred implementation as a comment in the code?
    however a more important problem is that the static cache prevents the vlan id's to be
persisted.  if we restart brooklyn then scale out we will acquire a new vlan id with this
code.  :(  i think that does need to be fixed.
    it could be fixed by switching away from the cache.  however a simpler fix could be that
the first thread which acquires the semaphore before exiting (without setting a vlan id) first
does a query of machines in SL.  if there are some already there we just take their vlan id
info and cache that.  it won't be perfect because vlan id *could* change if we rebooted brooklyn
and the list of vm's from SL came back in a different order but i think we could live with
that.  also it means that we are able to provision in parallel much more often, if there are
any machines in SL, and machines in different apps will also go on to the same vlan (not needed
but nice).
