Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-9184) [VMware] vmware.ports.per.dvportgroup global setting is not useful from vCenter 5.0 onwards
Date Fri, 11 May 2018 16:53:00 GMT


ASF subversion and git services commented on CLOUDSTACK-9184:

Commit 1b3046e3767a5e2a989ae7a47d35289cec3f06bf in cloudstack's branch refs/heads/master from
[;h=1b3046e ]

CLOUDSTACK-9184: Fixes #2631 VMware dvs portgroup autogrowth (#2634)

* CLOUDSTACK-9184: Fixes #2631 VMware dvs portgroup autogrowth

This deprecates the vmware.ports.per.dvportgroup global setting.

The vSphere Auto Expand feature (introduced in vSphere 5.0) will take
care of dynamically increasing/decreasing the dvPorts when running out
of distributed ports . But in case of vSphere 4.1/4.0 (If used), as this
feature is not there, the new default value (=> 8) have an impact in the
existing deployments. Action item for vSphere 4.1/4.0: Admin should
modify the global configuration setting "vmware.ports.per.dvportgroup"
from 8 to any number based on their environment because the proposal
default value of 8 would be very less without auto expand feature in
general. The current default value of 256 may not need immediate
modification after deployment, but 8 would be very less which means
admin need to update immediately after upgrade.

> CloudStack has a global config paramter vmware.ports.per.dvportgroup for setting the
number of ports per dvportgroup of Distributed Virtual Switch (DVS) and this takes effect
when the zone is created.
> Auto expand/shrink features adjusts the ports per dvportgroup value dynamically from
ESX 5.0 release. So, even if we set this global setting, auto expand will take effect and
the value configured at cloudstack is not useful anymore.
