Couple of quick questions on regarding Filter Scheduler and its custom schedulers.(

1) Can nova have more than one scheduler at a time? Standard Scheduler + one custom scheduler?

2) I have written a filter for the filter scheduler. (Something like RamFilter,CoreFilter,ComputeFilter,RetryFilter,AvailabilityZoneFilter,ImagePropertiesFilter,ComputeCapabilitiesFilter) Suppose tomorrow I write a custom scheduler - will this filter still be used? Or should I configure something somewhere?

I think we can have only one scheduler at a time (obiviously)

However we can have multiple filters

We can add any number of custom filters

  1. Yes its very much possible.
  2. Yes you can add your filter along with the exiting filters.

If its possible to add multiple schedulers - how we should configure it. lets say I have a scheduler called 'Scheduler' . So nova conf may look like below scheduler_manager = nova.scheduler.filters.SchedulerManager scheduler_driver = nova.scheduler.filter.Scheduler Then how can I add a second scheduler

Also - If there are 2 schedulers - will both of these called when creating a VM?

Do you mean - Can we have 2 'compute scheduler's at the same time?

What i meant is we can have multiple filter scheduler rules on a compute at same time.
