Hello there !

I deploy my first openstack environment using the fuel 6.1 with

  • 3x controllers
  • 1x mongodb
  • 2x computes
  • 2x ceph storages

Now i need control the bandwidth for the instance (VM). I create new flavor and define vif_* parameters, for example

    nova flavor-key silver_1  set quota:vif_inbound_average=1024
    nova flavor-key silver_1  set quota:vif_outbound_average=1024

and I launched a new instance using this flavor but de bandwidth control don't work. Is this the correct way to define bandwidth ?

Are quotas enabled in nova?

Yes are enabled. The another limits vcpu count, number of volumes are ok !

Did you use any tool for checking the bandwidth? Could you please share the details.
