Probably don't have enough resources in your system. By default openstack have an overcommit of 1:16 of CPU and 1:1.5 of RAM. That means that if you are launching 5 instances with 512 MB of RAM, you need in your devstack system at least 2GB of RAM only for running instances. If that's not the case, provide us more information to look deeper. Regards
