DESCRIPTION
45 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-----------
46 49148d15 Iustin Pop
47 49148d15 Iustin Pop
48 49148d15 Iustin Pop
hspace computes how many additional instances can be fit on a cluster,
49 49148d15 Iustin Pop
while maintaining N+1 status.
50 49148d15 Iustin Pop
51 49148d15 Iustin Pop
The program will try to place instances, all of the same size, on the
52 49148d15 Iustin Pop
cluster, until the point where we don't have any N+1 possible
53 49148d15 Iustin Pop
allocation. It uses the exact same allocation algorithm as the hail
54 9ef605a6 Iustin Pop
iallocator plugin in *allocate* mode.
55 49148d15 Iustin Pop
56 375969eb Iustin Pop
The output of the program is designed either for human consumption (the
57 375969eb Iustin Pop
default) or, when enabled with the ``--machine-readable`` option
58 375969eb Iustin Pop
(described further below), for machine consumption. In the latter case,
59 375969eb Iustin Pop
it is intended to interpreted as a shell fragment (or parsed as a
60 375969eb Iustin Pop
*key=value* file). Options which extend the output (e.g. -p, -v) will
61 375969eb Iustin Pop
output the additional information on stderr (such that the stdout is
62 375969eb Iustin Pop
still parseable).
63 49148d15 Iustin Pop
64 375969eb Iustin Pop
The following keys are available in the machine-readable output of the
65 375969eb Iustin Pop
script (all prefixed with *HTS_*):
66 49148d15 Iustin Pop
67 1cc97b7f Iustin Pop
SPEC_MEM, SPEC_DSK, SPEC_CPU, SPEC_RQN, SPEC_DISK_TEMPLATE
68 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  These represent the specifications of the instance model used for
69 1cc97b7f Iustin Pop
  allocation (the memory, disk, cpu, requested nodes, disk template).
70 49148d15 Iustin Pop
71 375969eb Iustin Pop
TSPEC_INI_MEM, TSPEC_INI_DSK, TSPEC_INI_CPU, ...
72 8dda364e Iustin Pop
  Only defined when the tiered mode allocation is enabled, these are
73 8dda364e Iustin Pop
  similar to the above specifications but show the initial starting spec
74 8dda364e Iustin Pop
  for tiered allocation.
75 8dda364e Iustin Pop
76 49148d15 Iustin Pop
CLUSTER_MEM, CLUSTER_DSK, CLUSTER_CPU, CLUSTER_NODES
77 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  These represent the total memory, disk, CPU count and total nodes in
78 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  the cluster.
79 49148d15 Iustin Pop
80 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_SCORE, FIN_SCORE
81 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  These are the initial (current) and final cluster score (see the hbal
82 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  man page for details about the scoring algorithm).
83 49148d15 Iustin Pop
84 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_INST_CNT, FIN_INST_CNT
85 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final instance count.
86 49148d15 Iustin Pop
87 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_MEM_FREE, FIN_MEM_FREE
88 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final total free memory in the cluster (but this
89 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  doesn't necessarily mean available for use).
90 49148d15 Iustin Pop
91 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_MEM_AVAIL, FIN_MEM_AVAIL
92 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final total available memory for allocation in the
93 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  cluster. If allocating redundant instances, new instances could
94 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  increase the reserved memory so it doesn't necessarily mean the
95 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  entirety of this memory can be used for new instance allocations.
96 49148d15 Iustin Pop
97 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_MEM_RESVD, FIN_MEM_RESVD
98 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final reserved memory (for redundancy/N+1 purposes).
99 49148d15 Iustin Pop
100 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_MEM_INST, FIN_MEM_INST
101 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final memory used for instances (actual runtime used
102 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  RAM).
103 49148d15 Iustin Pop
104 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_MEM_OVERHEAD, FIN_MEM_OVERHEAD
105 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final memory overhead--memory used for the node
106 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  itself and unacounted memory (e.g. due to hypervisor overhead).
107 49148d15 Iustin Pop
108 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_MEM_EFF, HTS_INI_MEM_EFF
109 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final memory efficiency, represented as instance
110 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  memory divided by total memory.
111 49148d15 Iustin Pop
112 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_DSK_FREE, INI_DSK_AVAIL, INI_DSK_RESVD, INI_DSK_INST, INI_DSK_EFF
113 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Initial disk stats, similar to the memory ones.
114 49148d15 Iustin Pop
115 49148d15 Iustin Pop
FIN_DSK_FREE, FIN_DSK_AVAIL, FIN_DSK_RESVD, FIN_DSK_INST, FIN_DSK_EFF
116 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Final disk stats, similar to the memory ones.
117 49148d15 Iustin Pop
118 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_CPU_INST, FIN_CPU_INST
119 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Initial and final number of virtual CPUs used by instances.
120 49148d15 Iustin Pop
121 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_CPU_EFF, FIN_CPU_EFF
122 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final CPU efficiency, represented as the count of
123 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  virtual instance CPUs divided by the total physical CPU count.
124 49148d15 Iustin Pop
125 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_MNODE_MEM_AVAIL, FIN_MNODE_MEM_AVAIL
126 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The initial and final maximum per-node available memory. This is not
127 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  very useful as a metric but can give an impression of the status of
128 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  the nodes; as an example, this value restricts the maximum instance
129 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  size that can be still created on the cluster.
130 49148d15 Iustin Pop
131 49148d15 Iustin Pop
INI_MNODE_DSK_AVAIL, FIN_MNODE_DSK_AVAIL
132 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Like the above but for disk.
133 49148d15 Iustin Pop
134 49148d15 Iustin Pop
TSPEC
135 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  If the tiered allocation mode has been enabled, this parameter holds
136 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  the pairs of specifications and counts of instances that can be
137 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  created in this mode. The value of the key is a space-separated list
138 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  of values; each value is of the form *memory,disk,vcpu=count* where
139 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  the memory, disk and vcpu are the values for the current spec, and
140 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  count is how many instances of this spec can be created. A complete
141 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  value for this variable could be: **4096,102400,2=225
142 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  2560,102400,2=20 512,102400,2=21**.
143 49148d15 Iustin Pop
144 49148d15 Iustin Pop
KM_USED_CPU, KM_USED_NPU, KM_USED_MEM, KM_USED_DSK
145 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  These represents the metrics of used resources at the start of the
146 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  computation (only for tiered allocation mode). The NPU value is
147 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  "normalized" CPU count, i.e. the number of virtual CPUs divided by
148 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  the maximum ratio of the virtual to physical CPUs.
149 49148d15 Iustin Pop
150 49148d15 Iustin Pop
KM_POOL_CPU, KM_POOL_NPU, KM_POOL_MEM, KM_POOL_DSK
151 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  These represents the total resources allocated during the tiered
152 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  allocation process. In effect, they represent how much is readily
153 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  available for allocation.
154 49148d15 Iustin Pop
155 49148d15 Iustin Pop
KM_UNAV_CPU, KM_POOL_NPU, KM_UNAV_MEM, KM_UNAV_DSK
156 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  These represents the resources left over (either free as in
157 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  unallocable or allocable on their own) after the tiered allocation
158 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  has been completed. They represent better the actual unallocable
159 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  resources, because some other resource has been exhausted. For
160 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  example, the cluster might still have 100GiB disk free, but with no
161 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  memory left for instances, we cannot allocate another instance, so
162 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  in effect the disk space is unallocable. Note that the CPUs here
163 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  represent instance virtual CPUs, and in case the *--max-cpu* option
164 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  hasn't been specified this will be -1.
165 49148d15 Iustin Pop
166 49148d15 Iustin Pop
ALLOC_USAGE
167 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The current usage represented as initial number of instances divided
168 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  per final number of instances.
169 49148d15 Iustin Pop
170 49148d15 Iustin Pop
ALLOC_COUNT
171 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The number of instances allocated (delta between FIN_INST_CNT and
172 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  INI_INST_CNT).
173 49148d15 Iustin Pop
174 49148d15 Iustin Pop
ALLOC_FAIL*_CNT
175 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  For the last attemp at allocations (which would have increased
176 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  FIN_INST_CNT with one, if it had succeeded), this is the count of
177 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  the failure reasons per failure type; currently defined are FAILMEM,
178 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  FAILDISK and FAILCPU which represent errors due to not enough
179 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  memory, disk and CPUs, and FAILN1 which represents a non N+1
180 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  compliant cluster on which we can't allocate instances at all.
181 49148d15 Iustin Pop
182 49148d15 Iustin Pop
ALLOC_FAIL_REASON
183 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The reason for most of the failures, being one of the above FAIL*
184 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  strings.
185 49148d15 Iustin Pop
186 49148d15 Iustin Pop
OK
187 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  A marker representing the successful end of the computation, and
188 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  having value "1". If this key is not present in the output it means
189 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  that the computation failed and any values present should not be
190 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  relied upon.
191 49148d15 Iustin Pop
192 49148d15 Iustin Pop
If the tiered allocation mode is enabled, then many of the INI_/FIN_
193 49148d15 Iustin Pop
metrics will be also displayed with a TRL_ prefix, and denote the
194 49148d15 Iustin Pop
cluster status at the end of the tiered allocation run.
195 49148d15 Iustin Pop
196 375969eb Iustin Pop
The human output format should be self-explanatory, so it is not
197 375969eb Iustin Pop
described further.
198 375969eb Iustin Pop
199 49148d15 Iustin Pop
OPTIONS
200 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-------
201 49148d15 Iustin Pop
202 49148d15 Iustin Pop
The options that can be passed to the program are as follows:
203 49148d15 Iustin Pop
204 49148d15 Iustin Pop
--memory *mem*
205 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  The memory size of the instances to be placed (defaults to
206 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  4GiB). Units can be used (see below for more details).
207 49148d15 Iustin Pop
208 49148d15 Iustin Pop
--disk *disk*
209 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  The disk size of the instances to be placed (defaults to
210 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  100GiB). Units can be used.
211 49148d15 Iustin Pop
212 9ef605a6 Iustin Pop
--disk-template *template*
213 9ef605a6 Iustin Pop
  The disk template for the instance; one of the Ganeti disk templates
214 9ef605a6 Iustin Pop
  (e.g. plain, drbd, so on) should be passed in.
215 49148d15 Iustin Pop
216 49148d15 Iustin Pop
--vcpus *vcpus*
217 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The number of VCPUs of the instances to be placed (defaults to 1).
218 49148d15 Iustin Pop
219 49148d15 Iustin Pop
--max-cpu=*cpu-ratio*
220 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  The maximum virtual to physical cpu ratio, as a floating point number
221 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  greater than or equal to one. For example, specifying *cpu-ratio* as
222 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  **2.5** means that, for a 4-cpu machine, a maximum of 10 virtual cpus
223 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  should be allowed to be in use for primary instances. A value of
224 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  exactly one means there will be no over-subscription of CPU (except
225 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  for the CPU time used by the node itself), and values below one do not
226 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  make sense, as that means other resources (e.g. disk) won't be fully
227 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  utilised due to CPU restrictions.
228 49148d15 Iustin Pop
229 49148d15 Iustin Pop
--min-disk=*disk-ratio*
230 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  The minimum amount of free disk space remaining, as a floating point
231 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  number. For example, specifying *disk-ratio* as **0.25** means that
232 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  at least one quarter of disk space should be left free on nodes.
233 49148d15 Iustin Pop
234 b8a2c0ab Iustin Pop
-l *rounds*, --max-length=*rounds*
235 b8a2c0ab Iustin Pop
  Restrict the number of instance allocations to this length. This is
236 b8a2c0ab Iustin Pop
  not very useful in practice, but can be used for testing hspace
237 b8a2c0ab Iustin Pop
  itself, or to limit the runtime for very big clusters.
238 b8a2c0ab Iustin Pop
239 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-p, --print-nodes
240 d7731f51 Iustin Pop
  Prints the before and after node status, in a format designed to allow
241 d7731f51 Iustin Pop
  the user to understand the node's most important parameters. See the
242 d7731f51 Iustin Pop
  man page **htools**(1) for more details about this option.
243 49148d15 Iustin Pop
244 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-O *name*
245 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  This option (which can be given multiple times) will mark nodes as
246 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  being *offline*. This means a couple of things:
247 49148d15 Iustin Pop
248 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  - instances won't be placed on these nodes, not even temporarily;
249 49148d15 Iustin Pop
    e.g. the *replace primary* move is not available if the secondary
250 49148d15 Iustin Pop
    node is offline, since this move requires a failover.
251 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  - these nodes will not be included in the score calculation (except
252 49148d15 Iustin Pop
    for the percentage of instances on offline nodes)
253 49148d15 Iustin Pop
254 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Note that the algorithm will also mark as offline any nodes which
255 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  are reported by RAPI as such, or that have "?" in file-based input
256 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  in any numeric fields.
257 49148d15 Iustin Pop
258 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-S *filename*, --save-cluster=*filename*
259 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  If given, the state of the cluster at the end of the allocation is
260 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  saved to a file named *filename.alloc*, and if tiered allocation is
261 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  enabled, the state after tiered allocation will be saved to
262 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  *filename.tiered*. This allows re-feeding the cluster state to
263 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  either hspace itself (with different parameters) or for example
264 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  hbal, via the ``-t`` option.
265 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
266 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
-t *datafile*, --text-data=*datafile*
267 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  Backend specification: the name of the file holding node and instance
268 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  information (if not collecting via RAPI or LUXI). This or one of the
269 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  other backends must be selected. The option is described in the man
270 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  page **htools**(1).
271 49148d15 Iustin Pop
272 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-m *cluster*
273 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  Backend specification: collect data directly from the *cluster* given
274 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  as an argument via RAPI. The option is described in the man page
275 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  **htools**(1).
276 49148d15 Iustin Pop
277 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-L [*path*]
278 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  Backend specification: collect data directly from the master daemon,
279 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  which is to be contacted via LUXI (an internal Ganeti protocol). The
280 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  option is described in the man page **htools**(1).
281 49148d15 Iustin Pop
282 49148d15 Iustin Pop
--simulate *description*
283 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  Backend specification: similar to the **-t** option, this allows
284 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  overriding the cluster data with a simulated cluster. For details
285 acd9fa11 Iustin Pop
  about the description, see the man page **htools**(1).
286 49148d15 Iustin Pop

--tiered-alloc *spec*
288 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Besides the standard, fixed-size allocation, also do a tiered
289 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  allocation scheme where the algorithm starts from the given
290 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  specification and allocates until there is no more space; then it
291 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  decreases the specification and tries the allocation again. The
292 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  decrease is done on the matric that last failed during
293 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  allocation. The specification given is similar to the *--simulate*
294 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  option and it holds:
295 49148d15 Iustin Pop
296 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  - the disk size of the instance (units can be used)
297 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  - the memory size of the instance (units can be used)
298 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  - the vcpu count for the insance
299 49148d15 Iustin Pop
300 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  An example description would be *100G,4g,2* describing an initial
301 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
  starting specification of 100GB of disk space, 4GiB of memory and 2
302 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  VCPUs.
303 49148d15 Iustin Pop
304 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Also note that the normal allocation and the tiered allocation are
305 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  independent, and both start from the initial cluster state; as such,
306 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  the instance count for these two modes are not related one to
307 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  another.

309 375969eb Iustin Pop
--machines-readable[=*choice*]
310 375969eb Iustin Pop
  By default, the output of the program is in "human-readable" format,
311 375969eb Iustin Pop
  i.e. text descriptions. By passing this flag you can either enable
312 375969eb Iustin Pop
  (``--machine-readable`` or ``--machine-readable=yes``) or explicitly
313 375969eb Iustin Pop
  disable (``--machine-readable=no``) the machine readable format
314 375969eb Iustin Pop
  described above.
315 375969eb Iustin Pop
316 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-v, --verbose
317 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Increase the output verbosity. Each usage of this option will
318 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  increase the verbosity (currently more than 2 doesn't make sense)
319 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  from the default of one.
320 49148d15 Iustin Pop
321 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-q, --quiet
322 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Decrease the output verbosity. Each usage of this option will
323 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  decrease the verbosity (less than zero doesn't make sense) from the
324 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  default of one.
325 49148d15 Iustin Pop
326 49148d15 Iustin Pop
-V, --version
327 49148d15 Iustin Pop
  Just show the program version and exit.

331 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
332 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
By default, all unit-accepting options use mebibytes. Using the
333 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
lower-case letters of *m*, *g* and *t* (or their longer equivalents of
334 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
*mib*, *gib*, *tib*, for which case doesn't matter) explicit binary
335 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
units can be selected. Units in the SI system can be selected using the
336 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
upper-case letters of *M*, *G* and *T* (or their longer equivalents of
337 247f77b7 Iustin Pop
*MB*, *GB*, *TB*, for which case doesn't matter).

-----------
344 49148d15 Iustin Pop
345 49148d15 Iustin Pop
The exist status of the command will be zero, unless for some reason
346 49148d15 Iustin Pop
the algorithm fatally failed (e.g. wrong node or instance data).

BUGS
349 49148d15 Iustin Pop
----
350 49148d15 Iustin Pop
351 49148d15 Iustin Pop
The algorithm is highly dependent on the number of nodes; its runtime
352 49148d15 Iustin Pop
grows exponentially with this number, and as such is impractical for
353 49148d15 Iustin Pop
really big clusters.
354 49148d15 Iustin Pop
355 49148d15 Iustin Pop
The algorithm doesn't rebalance the cluster or try to get the optimal
356 49148d15 Iustin Pop
fit; it just allocates in the best place for the current step, without
357 49148d15 Iustin Pop
taking into consideration the impact on future placements.
