Subject RE: 8 Xen hosts limitations

Lucas - I think this is more of a recommended guideline from the hypervisor to have a descent
performance. From what I recall I think the performance of the cluster starts degrading exponentially
as you scale the number of vlans and the hosts in the cluster.

Subject: 8 Xen hosts limitations


I see in the install docs that it says not to use more than 8 Xen hosts in one pool. I am
wondering why this is the case because as a test I added 10 hosts to a pool and Cloudstack
is managing them without any issues that I see. Any further clarification on this issue would
be greatly appreciated.
