QoS values in Cinder currently are able to be set to static values. This work proposes a way to derive QoS limit values based on volume capacities rather than static values.
This proposes a mechanism to provision IOPS on a per-volume basis with the IOPS values adjusted based on the volume’s size. (IOPS per GB)
A deployer wishes to cap “usage” of this system to limits based on space usage as well as throughput, in order to bill customers and not exceed limits of the backend.
Associating IOPS and size allows you to provide tiers such as
Gold: 1000 GB at 10000 IOPS per GB Silver: 1000 GB at 5000 IOPS per GB Bronze: 500 GB at 5000 IOPS per GB
- Allow creation of qos_keys:
read_iops_sec_per_gb write_iops_sec_per_gb total_iops_sec_per_gb
These function the same as our current <x>_iops_sec keys, except they are scaled by the volume size.
