Hi Guillermo, Would not modifying the local_settings.py and changing the OPENSTACK_HOST to reference a node other than 127.0.0.1 resolve the issue? Cheers David On Thu, Dec 20, 2012 at 1:49 AM, Guillermo Alvarado guillermoalvarad...@gmail.com wrote: BTW I am trying to use a my own

Hi Anton, Thanks for this, having a quick read through it looks great. I'd be interested to know what sort of performance you see with gluster providing a replicated file system, have you been able to do some high I/O burn in tests on guests? Thanks David On Fri, Aug 17, 2012 at 9:16 AM,
