cluster-energy-saving

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Post Action" for updated plans.

Watcher need one strategy which can reduce the power consumption.

A traffic system could be running on many virtual machines. The traffic is busy during day time, so the traffic system would increase virtual machines' number to satisfy its workload. But during the night, the traffic's workload decreases obviously, so this traffic system would delete redundant virtual machines. This feature we call "elastic scaling" in telecom.

The telecom operators have their own hardware equipment and sometimes the size of hardware is large. So telecom operators want to use cloud center manager software to reduce the energy consumption of hardware automatically based on "elastic scaling".

Admin can run a watcher audit with "vm_workload_consolidation" strategy and "continue" type to let virtual machines run on the minimum number of physical machines. At the same time, admin can run another watcher audit with this "cluster-energy-saving" strategy and "continue" type to increase or decrease the number of running physical machines.

We can use IPMI command to power on or power off a physical machine to increase or decrease the number of running physical machines.
