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.

From the top-right of the page, you can sort flavors by:

  • Name
  • Region
  • Virtual CPUs
  • Memory
  • Disk size

Flavors can also be filtered by:

  • Region
  • Memory MB
  • Root GB
  • vCPUs
  • Is public
  • Flavor group

Also you can switch from Card View to List View by clicking on the grid from top-right.

View flavor details

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.

Edit flavor

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:

../_images/editFlavor.png

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

Clone flavor

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.

Show flavor only to client group

To show the flavor only to certain flavor groups, you will have to click on the “Show to client group” icon:

Delete flavor

Cloud / Flavors groups

Flavor groups were implemented for a better management and a more user friendly display when choosing flavors to create instance. For this to be displayed in end user you will first need to switch the flavor display as cards to true in panel configuration files.

Create flavor group

To create a new flavor group you need to click on the + icon from the bottom right side of the page.

../_images/createFlavor.png

The priority is related to the position where the flavor group will be displayed.

Add flavor to group

To add a flavor to a flavor group you need to select the appropriate group and select the flavor. Then you need to click on ADD FLAVOR TO GROUP

To remove a flavor from a flavor group, you need to click on the “Remove flavor from group” button, at the end of the row:
