Hi list,

I find a page on wiki : 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 : Looks like network bandwidth can be limited by flavor. Is there any guide can help me find out the operation steps ??

Thanks. -chen

I test this feature in havana release. In summary, Instance Source Quota support the following thing now: CPU: quota:cpu_shares quota:cpu_period quota:cpu_quota

Network IO: quota:vif_inbound_average quota:vif_inbound_peak quota:vif_inbound_burst quota:vif_outbound_average quota:vif_outbound_peak quota:vif_outbound_burst

Disk IO: seems like qemu have bug now, when I boot VM ,I get some error.
