Doc Text:
This enhancement adds support for deploying RT enabled compute nodes from director alongside "regular" compute nodes. 1. Based on tripleo-heat-templates/environments/compute-real-time-example.yaml, create a compute-real-time.yaml environment file that sets the parameters for the ComputeRealTime role with at least the correct values for: * IsolCpusList and NovaVcpuPinSet: a list of CPU cores that should be reserved for real-time workloads. This depends on your CPU hardware on your real-time compute nodes. * KernelArgs: set to "default_hugepagesz=1G hugepagesz=1G hugepages=X" with X depending on the number of guests and how much memory they will have. 2. Build and upload the overcloud-realtime-compute image: * Prepare the repos (for CentOS): - sudo yum install -y https://trunk.rdoproject.org/centos7/current/python2-tripleo-repos-XXX.el7.centos.noarch.rpm - sudo -E tripleo-repos current-tripleo-dev - export DIB_YUM_REPO_CONF="/etc/yum.repos.d/delorean* /etc/yum.repos.d/quickstart*" * openstack overcloud image build --image-name overcloud-realtime-compute --config-file /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-common/image-yaml/overcloud-realtime-compute.yaml --config-file /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-common/image-yaml/overcloud-realtime-compute-centos7.yaml * openstack overcloud image upload --update-existing --os-image-name overcloud-realtime-compute.qcow2 3. Create roles_data.yaml with ComputeRealTime and all other required roles, for example: `openstack overcloud roles generate -o ~/rt_roles_data.yaml Controller ComputeRealTime ...` and assign the ComputeRealTime role to the real-time nodes in one of the usual ways. See https://docs.openstack.org/tripleo-docs/latest/install/advanced_deployment/custom_roles.html 4. Deploy the overcloud: openstack overcloud deploy --templates -r ~/rt_roles_data.yaml -e ./tripleo-heat-templates/environments/host-config-and-reboot.yaml -e ./compute-real-time.yaml [...]

Moving to Queens, as while progress is being made there is ongoing outstanding work required.

Comment 16 Sven Anderson 2018-01-29 13:45:55 UTC
All changes merged before M3. Moving to POST.

Comment 31 Yolanda Robla 2018-04-10 12:14:53 UTC
So from my understanding, this is a similar topic than the one for security hardened images. While we don't support image creation with DIB, we are supporting the image creation based on DIB, but with the code in tripleo-common. As it was a procedure that can be documented and tested, it was accepted.

Ollie already provided the yaml files to compose the images in tripleo-common, so i think that the best way to compose those images is use that yaml file and use the openstack overcloud build command
