Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-8592) Enhance usage server to provide quota service
Date Fri, 26 Jun 2015 11:22:04 GMT
Abhinandan Prateek created CLOUDSTACK-8592:

             Summary: Enhance usage server to provide quota service
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-8592
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Task
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Usage
    Affects Versions: 4.6.0
            Reporter: Abhinandan Prateek
            Assignee: Abhinandan Prateek
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 4.6.0

Quota service while allowing for scalability will make sure that the cloud is not exploited
by attacks, careless use and program errors. To address this problem, we propose to employ
a quota-enforcement service that allows resource usage within certain bounds as defined by
policies and available quotas for various entities. 
Quota service extends the functionality of usage server to provide a measurement for the resources
used by the accounts and domains using a common unit referred to as cloud currency in this
document. It can be configured to ensure that your usage won’t exceed the budget allocated
to accounts/domain in cloud currency.
It will let user know how much of the cloud resources he is using. It will help the cloud
admins, if they want, to ensure that a user does not go beyond his allocated quota. Per usage
cycle if a account is found to be exceeding its quota then it is locked. Locking an account
means that it will not be able to initiat
e a new resource allocation request, whether it is more storage or an additional ip. Needless
to say quota service as well as any action on the account is configurable.
