Questions and Answers¶
Can I use ANVIL for production?¶
Up to u! Beware of the sea and the black waters!
How do I get program usage?¶
$ ./smithy --help
How do I run a specific OpenStack milestone?¶
OpenStack milestones have tags set in the git repo. Set the appropriate setting in the branch variables in conf/anvil.ini.
Note: Swift is on its own release schedule so pick a tag in the Swift repo that is just before the milestone release.
# Quantum client git repo quantum_client_repo = git://github.com/openstack/python-quantumclient.git quantum_client_branch = essex-3 # Melange service melange_repo = git://github.com/openstack/melange.git melange_branch = essex-3 # Python melange client library melangeclient_repo = git://github.com/openstack/python-melangeclient.git melangeclient_branch = essex-3
OMG the images take forever to download!¶
Sometimes the images that will be uploaded to glance take a long time to download and extract and upload.
To adjust this edit conf/anvil.ini and change the following:
[img] ... # uec style cirros 0.3.0 (x86_64) and ubuntu oneiric (x86_64) image_urls = http://launchpad.net/cirros/trunk/0.3.0/+download/cirros-0.3.0-x86_64-uec.tar.gz, http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/oneiric/current/oneiric-server-cloudimg-amd64.tar.gz
To something like the following:
[img] ... # uec style cirros 0.3.0 (x86_64) image_urls = http://launchpad.net/cirros/trunk/0.3.0/+download/cirros-0.3.0-x86_64-uec.tar.gz
This will remove the larger ubuntu image and just use the smaller cirros image (which should not take to long to upload).
