Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-9333) Exclude clusters from OVF operations
Date Sat, 02 Apr 2016 01:38:25 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CLOUDSTACK-9333:

Github user rafaelweingartner commented on the pull request:
    I find the “AlertManager” class terrible for that. Its name gives the idea of something
that manages alerts and not clusters parameters/configurations. 
    To add that property, I was thinking about the “”
method (lines 491 and 492 are already doing that for over-commitment factors), and then you
could create a static entry at “CapacityManager” that seems to be the best option to hold
such configurations.
    If you change the “discoverCluster”, you would still need a script to add that parameter
to those clusters that the environment already has. You have to do that to enable the users
to change those parameters and use that functionality through the web interface.
    What do you think?

> h1. Introduction
> In some environments there is a need to exclude certain VMware clusters from performing
OVF operations. This operations are part of: 
> * create template
> * create volume snaphsot
> * copy template, volume, images from primary storage to secondary storage
> * migrate volume 
> * participate when a template gets cached over to primary storage.
> In ESX/ESXi, OVF operations are low priority and bound to a single CPU and most likely
get throttled to certain IOPS and network limits. 
> If the hypervisor chosen for OVF operations is weak or overloaded this results in significantly
longer execution of such OVF command and therefore degraded performance of underlying CloudStack
API call.
> h2. Proposed solution
> It is proposed to add a way to exclude hosts from selected clusters for OVF operations.
> To exclude a cluster, would be necessary to insert a record in {{cluster_details}} specifying
property *{{'vmware.exclude_from_ovf'}}* in this way: (supposing we want to exclude cluster
> ||cluster_id||||name||value||
> |X|vmware.exclude_from_ovf|true|
