Hi list,

I find a page on wiki : https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/InstanceResourceQuota

It is said we can set CPU, disk IO and bandwidth consumption limit for instances

But the blueprint page returns error, while the patch is abandoned in early last year.

Anyone can help me to know the current status about this ?

I also get a fixed bug : https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1185030

Looks like network bandwidth can be limited by flavor.

Is there any guide can help me find out the operation steps ??

Thanks. -chen

The blueprint page appears to work now:


According to the blueprint, this feature has been implemented. You can follow the links to the individual patches for details on support for specific resource limits. It looks like all of these limits are exposed via the nova flavor-key command, which sets values in the extra_specs dictionary for an instance.
