Overcommit disk resource [closed]

As far as I know, disk resource overcommit is configured by the parameter disk_allocation_ratio.

By default, this parameter is set to 1.0, which means disk resource overcommit is not allowed. I tried to launch an instance which requires 80G disk space, which none of the compute nodes have sufficient space available. However, the instance still launched succesfully!

Here is the nova log:

As shown in the logs, I have 2 compute nodes and both "disk" values are negative, which should mean there is no sufficient disk space available, why the host "pct94" is still chosen?

Thanks for anyone helping in advance.

Problem solved, the reason is DiskFilter was not included as the default filters in Nova.
