Hi, Solly, I don't think the 3G is really that important since it has no alignment requirement and will not cause fragmentation, at least not that much to against the previous suggestion. After all, 3G + 3G + 2G can sit in a 8G host quite well, maybe a multiplier of 64M is fair enough and should work in large scale system.. Of course, 1.34G is strange for an engineer :) --jyh > > Best Regards, > Solly Ross > > ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Dimitri Mazmanov" <dimitri.mazma...@ericsson.com> > To: "OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions)" > <email@example.com> > Sent: Monday, May 5, 2014 3:40:08 PM > Subject: Re: [openstack-dev] [Nova] [Heat] Custom Nova Flavor creation > through Heat (pt.2) > > This is good!
