Subject [jira] [Created] (LIBCLOUD-991) Can not retrieve more than 500VM on Google cloud
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2018 19:49:00 GMT
charles walker created LIBCLOUD-991:

             Summary: Can not retrieve more than 500VM on Google cloud
                 Key: LIBCLOUD-991
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Compute
         Environment: Google cloud project with more than 500VMs (python 3 and last libcloud
version AVL on pip)
            Reporter: charles walker

Today I notice that some of our VMs were not retrieve by our internal toolings. After some
investigation it seems that libcloud "list_nodes()" method on google can only retrieve max


[root@stackviewer-5cbcd8695-x964t /]# grep -o Vm response.log | wc -l


when we have in reality around 750 VMs. So i had a quick look and my first guess is that it
comes from the call made by liblcoud using this REST API:


with an optional argument "maxResults" that has a default value of 500 (which seems also to
be the max value BTW). I think i m on the good lead due to this 500 limit mentioned in the
doc and also observe on my side.

I will have a deeper look but just quickly open this ticket in case other people already saw
this limit
