Network Bandwidth Entitlement

Registered by Phil Day on 2013-05-06

This blueprint was updated for the icehouse cycle to be a resource extension. See: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/extensible-resource-tracking

Currently the Nova resources that the host_manager keeps track of (Disk, Memory and #_vCPU).largely independent of differences in physical servers, which makes keeping track of these fairly simple. However this makes it hard to use the scheduler effectively on a heterogeneous server environment.

The cpu-entitlement blueprint will extends this to add host independent CPU capacity
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/cpu-entitlement

The blueprint adds network bandwidth entitlement as an attribute of flavors which allows instances to be scheduled based on host network capacity.
