Description Mark Wagner 2015-08-27 03:07:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Given the nature of the design, the os-collect-config polling is actually synchronized and the 30 sec period causes cpu utilization to go to 100% every 30 seconds for several seconds each poll period.

It is not clear that this is scalable

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start top in a window on the undercloud machine
2.start a small deployment (65 nodes)
3.observe top behaviour over time.

Actual results:
Spikes in CPU utilization close to 100% every 30 seconds.

Expected results:
A smoother spread

Making the delay before the first poll a random number between 0 and $period would help de-synchronize the polling for many nodes. This would be a change to os-collect-config.

Comment 6 Mike Burns 2016-04-07 20:47:27 UTC
This bug did not make the OSP 8.0 release.  It is being deferred to OSP 10.
