Subject Re: Can we schedule to delete the VM instance
Date Wed, 20 Mar 2013 04:23:14 GMT
Hi Deepak,

Are you looking to delete a running VM instance automatically after 6 days? I would use cloud
monkey to script this.

As for "VM Expunge", AFAIK, it's an internal task (and not a utility) within cloudstack process
to permanently delete VMs from the system that are in a destroyed state. It does not "expunge"
VMs that are active.

Expung VM is configurable  ?  means I can achive this which I am thinking
from this utility !

There is no such thing out-of-box, but you can write a script using
cloudmonkey or directly calling CS API to delete VMs and then run it at
some interval.
As a side note there is an expunge VM task if you are interested in that.
