Description kpichard 2016-03-02 11:45:55 EST
Description of problem:
When you plug an openstack provider to CloudForms you are almost not able to run smartanalysis by default.

When I do it with the provided image I have not enough space as it copy a snapshot on the vm to /tmp but by default the sizing almost permit nothing to scan as tmp has only 1G.

There is several possibilities here, provide a storage to upload snapshot to permit analysis or increase size of /tmp/ by default to permit smartanalysis.

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

How reproducible:

every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug openstack to cloudforms
2. run smartanalysis

Actual results:

SmartAnalysis didn't work as by default /tmp size is 1G 

Expected results:

The default size of /tmp is encreased, a documentation precise to encrease /tmp or permit attach an external storage for scan.

The downstream version of the appliance gives you the option to add an additional virtual disk for temp storage. This is accomplished through the appliance's console menu, after the new virtual disk has been added to the appliance. Can you try this?

Hello Rich,

Thanks for you answer, It works with the attachment of the volume :

/dev/vdb1                                20G     17G  3,5G  83% /var/www/miq_tmp

Even if the path isn't the same, it has worked.

I have found only this on documentation :

Saying :
Use Extend Temporary Storage to add temporary storage to the appliance. The appliance formats an unpartitioned disk attached to the appliance host and mounts it at /var/www/miq_tmp. The appliance uses this temporary storage directory to perform certain image download functions.

I think we need to highlight this because it's not clear that it's important and used for smartanalysis.

Satyajit, is this explained better in more detailed docs around smartstate analysis?

More explanation required as it is unclear that which "The appliance uses this temporary storage directory to perform certain image download functions."
