[Docs][KBase] Cluster migration policy description is not detailed enough
Last modified: 2017-08-10 21:44:28 EDT
Description of problem:
The Cluster migration policy is described in
Red Hat Virtualization Administration guide
126.96.36.199. Migration Policy Settings Explained
The following is not clear:
- if Auto Converge and compression is used for particular Migration policy
- What are the boundaries for each of the policy? For example description for "Suspend workload if needed" doe snot specify what it the maximum downtime and how is the downtime calculated. We actually increasing the downtime if the migration does not converge in this way: 150,200,300,400,500,5000ms. We should sate this for each of the policy. We should also state how much are the CPUs slowed down if the Auto Converge is in use and when we will slow down the CPUs.
This is importatnt for the user for deciding which of the policies they should use.
Yaniv, can you help us identify the relevant engineering contact who can provide the requested information?
Can you help or assign someone to do help here?
the explanation is intentionally simplified for end users.
Do you need an explanation for your understanding or do you request to provide all the details how the algorithm works to be somewhere in GUI?

I got a question from a user which of the policies is suitable for their environment. They did not know based on the description.
sounds like a better fit for KCS.
there's a good deal of information about the policies on ovirt feature page http://www.ovirt.org/develop/release-management/features/virt/migration-enhancements/
Extended details about cluster migration policies are now available in the following KBase Solution:
