Subject [jira] [Created] (DTACLOUD-214) instance start/stop/destroy makes many calls to backend (depending on provider)
Date Wed, 16 May 2012 08:00:19 GMT
Dies Koper created DTACLOUD-214:

             Summary: instance start/stop/destroy makes many calls to backend (depending on
                 Key: DTACLOUD-214
             Project: DeltaCloud
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Server
            Reporter: Dies Koper
            Assignee: David Lutterkort
            Priority: Minor

Before performing an action on an instance, DC retrieves the current instance state to confirm
it is in a valid state to perform the requested action.

It does this by calling the instance() API. On some drivers, at least FGCP's, this operation
makes a number of calls to the backend: one to get the instance attributes such as its name,
one to get the state, one to get its assigned public IP address(es), one to get the initial
password, etc.

While all it needs is the state.

If we extract and move the state retrieval code to a separate method we can override it with
more efficient calls for providers that benefit from it.
