11 and 12 should mean "amount of primary (secondary) storage space", IMO

Subject: RE: [DISCUSS] Limit Resources to domain/account

Hi Sanjay,

Few queries I have here :

(i) what is the difference between (3) and (11) ?
(ii) what is the difference between (4), (5) and (12) except no. of ISOs? 
(iii) how the network bandwidth you mentioned in (13) is different from throttling that we
specify at network offering / - used by service offering ?
(iv) can you please give some more info on how this is going to help providers / accounts
with this additional setting? Is this to control some kind of licensing limitations?

Subject: [DISCUSS] Limit Resources to domain/account

Hi all,

CloudStack today offers the ability to limit the following resources to a domain/account:
1. VM - Number of instance a user can create 2. Pubic IP - Number of public IP addresses a
user can own.
3. Volume - Number of disk volumes a user can create.
4. Snapshot - Number of snapshots a user can create.
5. Template - Number of templates that a user can register/create.
6. Projects - Number of projects a user can create.
7. Network - Number of guest networks that a user can create.
8. VPC - Number of VPCs that a user can create

These limits are useful to some extent but if admin would like to allow user to create custom
VMs based on need, for e.g. one large VM or many small VMs etc. 
Admin would like to restrict the resources like CPU, RAM, storage etc. a user can consume
by setting limits.

I would like to propose a new feature based on the above mentioned requirements in which admin
would be able to set limits on following resources apart from the above mentioned resources
9. CPUs
10. RAM
11. Primary (shared) storage (Volumes)
12. Secondary storage (Snapshots, Templates & ISOs) 13. Network bandwidth rate (in bps)
14. Number of times a OS template can be deployed

I am working on FS and will share it shortly.

Please let me know your comments/suggestions.
