Hi all

Just wondering if there is a way that we can prioritize VEs. In other words, if I am running 4 VEs and one of them is more important than the others in terms of using the resources.

Something like prioritizing the processes in the OS.

Thanks

Kind of all, what I mean is that certain VPS is more important than other. So, I am looking for prioritizing the whole VPS. For example I am running VPS with the ids 101, 102, 103, 104
VPS 102 is important, so I want to give it the priority of using the resources, more or less like process management in the OS

shuaib85, basically we have 5 types of resources:

  • Memory
  • CPU time
  • Disk space
  • Network bandwidth
  • IO bandwidth


Each one can be tuned separately. With the following tools:
  • Memory - beancounters
  • CPU - fairsched
  • Disk - quota
  • Network - traffic shaper
  • IO - iosched


All of this is described on our wiki page here.
