Resource providers: custom resource classes (Pike) for OpenStack Compute (nova)
This continues the work that's leftover from Ocata: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/custom-resource-classes Which at this point is mostly around changes to the resource tracker to report custom resource classes for Ironic resource providers (compute nodes) and then having the scheduler use those for pl...
Remaining work on shared resources for Pike for OpenStack Compute (nova)
Few things need to be completed for the shared resources work in Pike: 1) Rename "can_host" to "shared" on placement DB's resource_providers table (edit mriedem): Per discussion at the Pike PTG, this needs to change since we're going to use traits now: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/376198/ 2) Add InventoryList...
Support nested resource providers for OpenStack Compute (nova)
Add support for trees of resource providers. Canonical examples of nested resource providers include creating resource providers for each NUMA node on a compute host and resource providers for SRIOV-enabled physical functions on a compute host.
Refactor nova.image to use an API object like nova.volume and nova.network for OpenStack Compute (nova)
For some reason, nova.image does things differently than nova.volume and nova.network. Instead of nova.compute.manager instantiating a self.image_api object, like it does for self.network_api and self.volume_api, the compute manager calls an obtuse collection of nova.image.glance module calls. This blueprint is aro...
