cinder create fail with netapp qos extra-spec.

we are doing openstack POC ( UBUNTU 12.04 KVM HAVANA with ONTAP cDOT 8.2P3)

At first, we created  QOS policy " qos_pol_100m  " with system manager .

An then,

we tested netapp qos extra-spec.


# cinder type-create qos

# cinder type-key  27de5229-5f2b-442f-bde0-078aff6a4e36 set netapp:qos_policy_group=qos_pol_50m  

# cinder extra-specs-list

# cinder create --display-name test --volume-type qos 2

Error LOG is

Is it any miss step or sentence ???

normal cinder create is OK

$ cinder create --display-name test 2

$ cinder list

Re: cinder create fail with netapp qos extra-spec.

Hi Youngs,

I believe this is a timing issue.  The driver only updates the backend storage service catalog every so often.  I do not remember the exact timing but it is somewhat slow.  You can force an update of the catalog by restarting the cinder driver.  When I tested this issue myself, I saw the same behavior you did and a cinder restart fixed it.  Otherwise I think you have to wait a while for the driver to recognize that there is a new QOS Policy Group created on the filer.

Re: cinder create fail with netapp qos extra-spec.

Also double check your names.  In the example you provided you said you created " qos_pol_100m  " with system manager, but you added netapp:qos_policy_group=qos_pol_50m as your volume type extra-spec.  I'm assuming this was simply a type-o, but if not then it would also explain why this is failing.

Re: cinder create fail with netapp qos extra-spec.

my mistake .I  created " qos_pol_100m &  qos_pol_50m " with system manager

I test all case and were failed..

Re: cinder create fail with netapp qos extra-spec.

I have double checked with our developer and there is a hard-coded value of 30 minutes between SSC updates.  So you can either wait for up to 30 minutes after creating a volume with the new QOS policy, or you can restart the cinder service to force the update right away.
