Description

The attributes CPU and MEMORY for VM and Hosts can be confusing to new users.

List of incongruencies:

  1. When a VM is defined, both CPU and MEMORY refer to the Host capacity that will be reserved. But MEMORY is also the memory that the guest will see, whereas the number of virtual cpus is set in a different attribute, VCPU.
  2. When a new VM is defined, VM/MEMORY and VM/CPU refer to the allocated value. But an existing VM stores in the same attributes the monitored usage.
  3. When a new VM is defined, CPU is measured in number of cpus, although HOST/CPU is measured and shown in percentage. The monitored CPU usage of an existing VM is also measured in percentage.
  4. VM/CPU (monitored percentage) is shown in 'onevm list' simply as 'CPU', and in 'onevm show' as 'USED CPU'. This is maintained in Sunstone, but the Self-service portal shows the allocated CPU, in number of cpus.

Another important issue is that the monitored cpu and memory values are not reported by the VMware driver. Maybe we should not give so much visibility to these values in infrastructures running VMware.
