Compute Canada Cloud Project Work Plan

  • Cloud Scheduler
    • Develop new Virtual Machine, sl7.0, latest HTCondor and CS releases. One or more instances to be run on CC East or West.
    • CS/HTCondor VM must run with public/external NIC.
    • Achieve 90%+ utilization on cloud:
      • Develop script to monitor utilization on attached clouds and adjust CS resource allocation:
        • suggestion: leave 5% margin for interractive VMs, ie. allocate 95% resources to CS.
        • Script to have configurable thresholds, eg leave 5% (max) free, when less than 2% (min) free up another 4% (adjustment). Different values for each cloud?
        • Effect by adjusting /etc/cloudscheduler/cloud_resources.conf + quickrestart
        • May require some enhancements to CS to prioritize VM shutdowns and avoid ATLAS blacklisting.
        • Percentage utilization of what? (cores, memory, slots, etc.)
        • How do we get the utilization numbers? Suggest Nova API.
    • Time line:
      • 27 January 2015 - agree on strategy.

  • Glint
    • Glint server deployments in CC East and West, each using the local OpenStack services (keystone, glance).
    • Parallel deployments in both regions, ie. both modified and standard horizon dashboards available from both CC regions.
    • Modified dashboards to run in python virtual environments.
    • Initial glint dashboard will be based on Havana.
    • Support for later versions of the dashboard to be aded.
    • Time line:
      • 27 January 2015 - agree on strategy.

  • Shoal
