Description khartsoe@redhat.com 2017-05-25 14:29:36 UTC
Document URL: 

Section Number and Name: 
(Sec 3.1 Physical Machines) https://doc-stage.usersys.

(Sec 3.3 Networking) https://doc-stage.usersys.

Describe the issue: 
Need additional clarification regarding network and latency requirements

Suggestions for improvement: 
Please add clarification of the following requirements:

(1) Two network interfaces are required:
 -one front-end network for setting the ovirtmgmt bridge
 -one back-end network for probing gluster peers and setting up the volume

Two separate networks are required so that client and management traffic in
the cluster are separated.
- client and management traffic or data and management traffic ?

Red Hat recommends 10Gbps networks for best performance.
- This recommendation is for the backend network  (i.e one with storage and
migration traffic)

(2)Also, we need to call out that the IP addresses assigned to the front-end
network needs to be from same subnet. 

(3) Similarly for back-end network, all IP addresses need to from same subnet which is different from the front-end
network's subnet (Apparently this was not obvious to customer)

(4) Latency:
 RHGS requires a minimum latency of < 5ms between between the three machines
