RDO all in one has been installed on a HP server with 8core cpus and 16G ram. a few minutes after installation it goes to be very slow, as I checked the memory usage was growing quickly and after reaching the 16G started to use swap space. If I stop/start openstack services that will be ok for a few minutes and then same scenario happens. Any tips to find the issue and fix that?

I had the same issue with mitaka rdo on my hp proliant g7 with 16gb ram and 16 cpu. So I installed the same mitaka rdo on a proliant gen9 with 64gb ram. With no instances created yet and only 1 glance image, top shows 26.75GB Memory used!

top - 13:11:41 up 33 days, 23:46, 1 user, load average: 0.42, 0.42, 0.39 Tasks: 885 total, 1 running, 883 sleeping, 0 stopped, 1 zombie %Cpu(s): 1.1 us, 0.4 sy, 0.0 ni, 98.5 id, 0.0 wa, 0.0 hi, 0.0 si, 0.0 st KiB Mem : 65936020 total, 31653440 free, 26756320 used, 7526260 buff/cache KiB Swap: 33030140 total, 33030140 free, 0 used. 36537848 avail Mem

All I can deduce is that 32GB ram is needed for RDO and several small instances for acceptable performance.

That is just an opinion tho.
