Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCLOUDS-507) Nova instance metadata is not limited to 5 pairs
Date Mon, 24 Mar 2014 15:44:46 GMT

ASF subversion and git services commented on JCLOUDS-507:
---------------------------------------------------------

Commit 59c10e18e810a950fe24791fdb877860ac1ed120 in jclouds's branch refs/heads/1.7.x from
[~jfriedly]
[ https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=jclouds.git;h=59c10e1 ]

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

> 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
OpenStack.
> 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.
