Cloud / Flavors¶
A flavor defines the compute, memory, and storage capacity of an instance. This will help you to create custom instances (plans) for your clients.
In this page, you can do as follow:
Create new flavor¶
To create a new flavor click the plus (+) button from the bottom-right - “Create new flavor”.
On the next page fill in these fields:
Ram in MB: The amount of physical memory (RAM).
Virtual CPUs: The number of CPU cores.
Disk size in Gb: The amount of disk space (Gb).
Swap space in Gb: Used when the amount of physical memory (RAM) is full.
Ephemeral disk space in GB: Used for temporary files only. All data will be lost on reboot.
Is public: Public or private (flavor will not be visible to clients).
Description: A short description for your flavor.

To find more details about your flavor, click on a flavor box. A new page will open and there you’ll find all details about your flavor as follow: ID, Name, Ram, Virtual CPUs, Disk space, Swap, Ephemeral storage, Disabled, Public, Region, Description, Group
On the flavor details you can also configure if the flavor will be displayed in the enduser panel or if the flavor is out of stock.
As you may know, the OpenStack API does not allow editing of flavors, so when you will edit the flavor, Fleio will basically delete and re-create it.
To edit a flavor click on the “Pen” icon in the top right corner:
In the edit flavor form you will be able to:
preserve the existing flavor ID
make the flavor private
hide the flavor for end user panel
set the flavor as out of stock
edit flavor properties
To clone the flavor you will need to click on the “clone” button in the top right corner. As you might notice, the clone option will open the create flavor form, with all the flavor details (such as ram, vCPUs, etc) already filled in.
