I want to reduce scheduler_max_attempts in nova.conf. I changed it and restarted nova-scheduler service. Then I tried to test the change by triggering multiple vm creation at the same time. I could see that there are more number of retries happen than I set for scheduler_max_attempts. I want to know if any other service needs restart to apply scheduler_max_attempts change.

Looking at the source, I think it's only the scheduler. Note that this parameter limits the number of times a given failed instance is rescheduled. Is that what you understand?

Yes I understand that. I have experienced the cases when this number is not enough and it raises error. So I want to increase this number.
