Target version:Release 2.0
Resolution:fixed Pull request:


For large-scale deployments monitoring can impose too much overhead and slow the responsiveness of the system in terms of time-to-deploy of VMs. Additionally the alternative driver backend is able to do monitoring in a pull mode (i.e actions are notified by the workernodes). This can relax the intervals in the core.

The ticket will add the following configuration parameters

1.- Max number of hosts & VMs per monitoring interval
2.- Disable Host/VM monitoring
