The glance charm provides the Glance image service for OpenStack. It is intended to be used alongside the other OpenStack components.
Glance may be deployed in a number of ways. This charm focuses on 3 main configurations. All require the existence of the other core OpenStack services deployed via Juju charms, specifically: mysql, keystone and nova-cloud-controller. The following assumes these services have already been deployed.
In this configuration, Glance uses the local storage available on the server to store image data:
juju deploy glance juju add-relation glance keystone juju add-relation glance mysql juju add-relation glance nova-cloud-controller
Swift backed storage
Glance can also use Swift Object storage for image storage. Swift is often deployed as part of an OpenStack cloud and provides increased resilience and scale when compared to using local disk storage. This configuration assumes that you have already deployed Swift using the swift-proxy and swift-storage charms:
juju deploy glance juju add-relation glance keystone juju add-relation glance mysql juju add-relation glance nova-cloud-controller juju add-relation glance swift-proxy
This configuration can be used to support Glance in HA/Scale-out deployments.
Ceph backed storage
In this configuration, Glance uses Ceph based object storage to provide scalable, resilient storage of images. This configuration assumes that you have already deployed Ceph using the ceph charm:
juju deploy glance juju add-relation glance keystone juju add-relation glance mysql juju add-relation glance nova-cloud-controller juju add-relation glance ceph-mon
This configuration can also be used to support Glance in HA/Scale-out deployments.
Note: Glance acts as a Ceph client in this case which requires IP (L3) connectivity to Ceph monitors and OSDs. For MAAS-based deployments this can be addressed with network spaces (see section 'Network spaces' below).
When more than one unit is deployed with the hacluster application the charm will bring up an HA active/active cluster.
There are two mutually exclusive high availability options: using virtual IP(s) or DNS. In both cases the hacluster subordinate charm is used to provide the Corosync and Pacemaker backend HA functionality.
Important: Glance in an HA configuration must be backed by either Ceph or Swift.
In order to do Glance metering with Ceilometer, an AMQP relation is required e.g.
juju deploy glance juju deploy rabbitmq-server juju deploy ceilometer-agent ... juju add-relation glance rabbitmq-server juju add-relation glance ceilometer-agent ...
This charm supports the use of Juju network spaces. This feature optionally allows specific types of the application's network traffic to be bound to subnets that the underlying hardware is connected to.
Note: Spaces must be configured in the backing cloud prior to deployment.
API endpoints can be bound to distinct network spaces supporting the network separation of public, internal and admin endpoints.
Glance acts as a Ceph client and needs IP connectivity to Ceph monitors and OSDs. Binding the ceph endpoint to a space can solve this problem in case monitors and OSDs are located on a single L2 broadcast domain (if they are not, static or dynamic routes need to be used in addition to spaces).
Access to the underlying MySQL instance can also be bound to a specific space using the shared-db relation.
To use this feature, use the --bind option when deploying the charm:
juju deploy glance --bind \ "public=public-space \ internal=internal-space \ admin=admin-space \ shared-db=internal-space \ ceph=ceph-access-space"
Alternatively, these can also be provided as part of a juju native bundle configuration:
glance: charm: cs:xenial/glance num_units: 1 bindings: public: public-space admin: admin-space internal: internal-space shared-db: internal-space ceph: ceph-access-space
Note: Existing glance units configured with the
os-public-networkoptions will continue to honour them. Furthermore, these options override any space bindings, if set.
Policy overrides is an advanced feature that allows an operator to override the default policy of an OpenStack service. The policies that the service supports, the defaults it implements in its code, and the defaults that a charm may include should all be clearly understood before proceeding.
Caution: It is possible to break the system (for tenants and other services) if policies are incorrectly applied to the service.
Policy statements are placed in a YAML file. This file (or files) is then (ZIP) compressed into a single file and used as an application resource. The override is then enabled via a Boolean charm option.
Here are the essential commands (filenames are arbitrary):
zip overrides.zip override-file.yaml juju attach-resource glance policyd-override=overrides.zip juju config glance use-policyd-override=true
