Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCLOUDS-507) Nova instance metadata is not limited to 5 pairs
Date Sat, 22 Mar 2014 00:36:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCLOUDS-507?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13943791#comment-13943791

ASF subversion and git services commented on JCLOUDS-507:

Commit b93cfa42e1498c65d452765b97fd9237d6884ed4 in jclouds's branch refs/heads/master from
[ https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=jclouds.git;h=b93cfa4 ]

Remove Nova instance metadata limit

Rackspace cloud limits instance metadata to 5 key-value pairs, but
upstream Nova only sets the limit at 128 by default.  This patch removes
the limit entirely; the official python clients don't check it and the
server is responsible for enforcing it anyway.

Fixes:  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCLOUDS-507

>             Project: jclouds
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: jclouds-compute
>    Affects Versions: 1.8.0
>            Reporter: Joel Friedly
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 1.8.0
> The ``CreateServerOptions.metadata`` docs and method both say that only up to 5 key-value
metadata pairs are allowed.  This is a requirement of Rackspace cloud, but not of upstream
> There is a configurable metadata limit, the ``maxServerMeta`` nova absolute limit, but
the default value is 128.  The python nova client just sends requests up to nova though and
the server enforces the limit.
