Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-9333) Exclude clusters from OVF operations
Date Mon, 04 Apr 2016 14:19:25 GMT

Github user nvazquez commented on the pull request:
    Ok, nice. I like that option. The only question I have about this is that if property
could be changed from UI by users after inserted in "cluster_details", as I have observed
most properties set in "cluster_details" table are not listed in the UI (Infrastructure ->
Clusters -> Cluster X -> Settings).
    How can I do to enable changing it from the UI instead of updating DB table?

> 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|
