Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-6063) CLONE - Non windows instances are created on XenServer with a vcpu-max above supported xenserver limits
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 07:00:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-6063?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14211934#comment-14211934
] 

Harikrishna Patnala commented on CLOUDSTACK-6063:
-------------------------------------------------

vcpu-max is vm parameter in Xenserver which specifies the maximum number of VCPUs upto which
we can dynamically scale the VM's vpcu value.

Previously this value was hardcoded to 32 for non windows VMs (which is a higher value than
recommended for some templates in Xenserver) due to which xapi becomes unstable as explained
in the bug. 

We have already provided a fix as part of https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-6023,
by introducing a configuration parameter "xen.vm.vcpu.max" with default value 16.

This bug is created for tracking purpose to fix the parameter using Xenserver stats.

> In addition there seems to be a limit to the total amount of assigned vpcus on a XenServer.
> The impact of this bug is that xapi becomes unstable and keeps losing it's master_connection
because the POST to the /remote_db_access is bigger then it's limit of 200K. This basically
renders a pool slave unmanageable. 
> If you would look at the running instances using xentop you will see hosts reporting
with 32 vcpus
