Nova Cells v2

Bugs

Blueprints

These are all currently targeted for the Pike release.

TODOs

Open Questions

  • Should the computes self-register with a cell when the compute_nodes record is created from the ResourceTracker? https://review.openstack.org/#/c/369634/
    • How would the computes know which cell to map to? We could add something to the model to flag a 'default' or 'staging' cell mapping, or put something into nova.conf on the compute node.
    • If we auto-register into a default/staging cell, how do we move hosts to other cells? nova-manage CLI?
    • We have an option to auto-map hosts from the scheduler since Ocata, with improvements being made in Pike: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/discover-hosts-faster
