bifrost-create-vm-nodes

This role creates virtual machines for testing bifrost.

Requirements

The following packages are required and ensured to be present:

  • libvirt-bin
  • qemu-utils
  • qemu-kvm
  • sgabios

Warning

For backward compatibility some variables listed below may default to values of corresponding shell variables on the management host (where ansible-playbook is launched) as described. This behavior is deprecated and will be removed in the Queens release. Non-default values for these variables should be passed to ansible-playbook as extra-vars instead.

Role Variables

baremetal_csv_file: Deprecated. CSV file format is deprecated, and this variable will be removed in the Queens release. Use 'baremetal_json_file' variable instead. Default is undefined. If defined, its value will be used for 'baremetal_json_file' variable (see below), although file created will still be in JSON format.

baremetal_json_file: Defaults to '/tmp/baremetal.json' but will be overridden by 'baremetal_csv_file' if that is defined.

test_vm_memory_size: Tunable setting to allow a user to define a specific amount of RAM in MB to allocate to guest/test VMs. Defaults to "3072". Note: if this setting is modified between test runs, you may need to undefine the test virtual machine(s) that were previously created.

test_vm_domain_type: Tunable setting to allow a user to chosee the domain type of the created VMs. The default is "qemu" and can be set to kvm to enable kvm acceleration.

test_vm_num_nodes: Tunable setting to allow a user to define the number of test VMs that will be created. They will all be created with same settings.

test_vm_arch: Defines the architecture of VM to create. Defaults to "x86_64". The value of this variable is passed directly to libvirt when creating VMs. Generally users should not need to modify this setting. Any other than default value is untested.

test_vm_disk_gib: Disk size for VMs to be created, in GiB. Defaults to shell variable 'VM_DISK' or, if that is not set, to 10.

test_vm_cpu_count: Number of CPUs to create the VMs with. Defaults to shell variable 'VM_CPU', or, if that is not set, to 1.

test_vm_disk_cache: Disk cache mode to use by VMs disk. Defaults to shell variable 'VM_DISK_CACHE', or, if that is not set, to 'writeback'.

test_vm_node_names: Space-separated names for nodes to be created. Defaults to shell variable 'TEST_VM_NODE_NAMES'. If not set, VM names will be autogenerated. Note that independent on the number of names in this list, at most 'test_vm_num_nodes' VMs will be created.

test_vm_node_name_base: Base name to generate VM names when names are not explicitly set. Defaults to shell variable 'NODEBASE', or, if that is not set, to 'testvm'.

test_vm_network: Name of the libvirt network to create the nodes on. Defaults to shell variable 'VM_NET_BRIDGE', or, if that is not set, to 'default'.

test_vm_storage_pool: Name of the libvirt storage pool to create disks for VMs in. Defaults to shell variable 'LIBVIRT_STORAGE_POOL', or, if that is not set, to 'default'. If absent, this pool will be created.

test_vm_storage_pool_path: Path used by the libvirt storage pool 'test_vm_storage_pool' if it has to be created. Defaults to "/var/lib/libvirt/images".

test_vm_logdir: Folder where to store VM logs. Defaults to "/var/log/libvirt/baremetal_logs".

test_vm_emulator: Path to emulator executable used to define VMs in libvirt. Defaults to "/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64". Generally users should not need to modify this setting, as it is OS-specific and is overwritten by os/distribution-specific defaults in this role when needed.

test_vm_machine: Type of the VM to define in libvirt. Defaults to "pc-1.0". Generally users should not need to modify this setting, as it is OS-specific and is overwritten by os/distribution-specific defaults in this role when needed.

test_vm_libvirt_uri: URI to connect to libvirt for networks, storage and VM related actions. Defaults to shell variable 'LIBVIRT_CONNECT_URI', or, if that is not set, to 'qemu:///system'. Note that currently connecting to remote libvirt is not tested and is unsupported.

test_vm_network: Name of the libvirt network to create for VMs. Defaults to shell variable 'VM_NET_BRIDGE', or, if that is not set, to 'default'. The network is created only if it does not already exist.

network_interface: Name of the bridge to create when creating 'test_vm_network' libvirt network. Defaults to "virbr0". Name and default of this option are chosen to be the same as in 'bifrost-ironic-install' role.

test_vm_network_ip: IP for the 'network_interface' bridge. Defaults to '192.168.122.1'. This setting is applied only when 'test_vm_network' was absent and is created from scratch.

test_vm_network_netmask: Subnet mask for 'network_interface' bridge. Defaults to '255.255.255.0'. This setting is applied only when 'test_vm_network' was absent and is created from scratch.

test_vm_network_enable_dhcp: Whether to enable DHCP on 'test_vm_network'. Defaults to 'true'. This setting is applied only when 'test_vm_network' was absent and is created from scratch.

test_vm_network_dhcp_start: Start of DHCP range for 'test_vm_network'. Defaults to '192.168.122.2'. This setting is applied only when 'test_vm_network' was absent and is created from scratch and when 'test_vm_network_enable_dhcp' is enabled.

test_vm_network_dhcp_end: End of DHCP range for 'test_vm_network'. Defaults to '192.168.122.254'. This setting is applied only when 'test_vm_network' was absent and is created from scratch and when 'test_vm_network_enable_dhcp' is enabled.
