Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-2988) UI: checkbox to know whether tools installed on the template during register template
Date Mon, 08 Jul 2013 08:53:49 GMT


Harikrishna Patnala commented on CLOUDSTACK-2988:

Let me explain the work flow:

For dynamic scaling to work virtual machine should have XS tools / VMware tools installed
on it. To ensure this Admin/User can do it in two ways :-

    1)  Admin/User while registering the template provides an input whether tools are installed
on the template(or can be done using update template API).
    2)  If the user deploys a virtual machine with a template that does not have XS tools
/ VMware tools and later if he/she installs the tools on the VM then he can inform Cloudstack
using using updatevirtualmachine API. After installation of tools and updating the virtual
machine, user needs to stop and start the vm from cloudstack in order for dynamic scaling
of CPU and RAM for that VM. The reason why we need to stop start the VM after updating is
we need to set static max memory to some higher value before VM starts so that we can dynamically
scale the VM upto static max.

UI Changes:

During registering/updating template we need to have a checkbox (API boolean parameter "isdynamicallyscalable")
like we have for "public" or  "password enabled".
For UpdateVirtualMachine API also we need the same.
