Lab Duration

It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete this lab.

Exercise 1 - Administering an OpenStack Environment

An OpenStack flavor defines the computing power that can be assigned to a specific virtual machine that is created.

By creating a flavor, the following parameters can be associated with the flavor:

Flavor ID: A Universal Unique Identifier (UUID) will be created if set to auto.

vCPU’s: The number of virtual CPU’s that can be used by the specific flavor. This parameter is mandatory.

Memory: The amount of RAM specified in megabytes. This is a mandatory field.

Root Disk: The amount of disk space allocated for the root partition of the virtual machine. If left on 0 then the size of the image will be allocated for the root partition.

Ephemeral Disk: Local storage for the virtual machine is defined here. This disk is associated with the lifespan of the specific virtual machine and deleted when the virtual machine is deleted.

Swap: The size of swap space available for the virtual machine. This is an optional parameter that can be specified.

Is Public: This parameter can be specified if the flavor is available for all projects or if specified only for a specific project. If this parameter is not specified the default value is true, thus publicly available.

In this exercise, you will create flavors, images and an internal network in an OpenStack environment.

Learning Outcomes
