Developer Weekly (August 12)

August 12th, 2011 — 4:57pm

Many people have asked for more insight into the developer activities for OpenStack as the large number of code changes and proposals make it difficult to monitor everything happening. In hopes of exposing more of the developer activities, I plan to post a weekly or biweekly blog post on the latest development activities. If you have any ideas for this blog post, please email me at [email protected]. I am always ready to listen to the community for new ideas.

Activities

Developer Mailing List (archive: https://lists.launchpad.net/openstack/)

This is select list of topics discussed this week in the developer mailing list and is not a complete list.  Please visit the archive to see all the topics.

  • Tenants and Service Relationship… - Liem Manh Ngueyn asks “can I have a tenant associated with the “swift” service in Region X and another “swift” service in Region Y?” Yogeshwar Srikrishnan replies that Keystone would have different endpoint_template for each of those regions and provides and example.
  • Monitoring RabbitMQ Messages – Joshua Harlow asks if there is a tool to see all the messages passing thru rabbitmq. Craig Vyvial suggested changing the config options for rabbitmq (http://www.rabbitmq.com/management.html#configuration). Narayan Desai suggested using rabbitmqctl list_queues to see what the queue depth for each NOVA service was.
  • Problems connecting Dashboard and Nova – Mauricio Arango submitted the error information when the Dashboard fails to connect to Nova. Several developers offered various ideas to solve the problem – Mark Gius, Rafael Duran Castaneda, Joseph Heck, Arvind Somya, Vand ish Ishaya .
