Hi, How can I dynamically limit instance bandwidth based on usage? For example, I want a rule where if an instance uses over 50mbps for over half an hour, the instance port speed/rxtx factor will be reduced to 10mbps for the next 6 hours. How can I do that? I'm using Havana and nova-network.

How you do this in traditional setup (without cloud)?

Shankar Ganesh P J has the correct question. There is no way t odo this with Openstack, however you are not prevented from doing this either. Figure out a way to do this, and you can apply it to Openstack. I would recommend using ceilometer as I believe that is a metric it can track.
