  • OpenStackPlusCeph
    • we have our public IP's assigned, need to now map the changes in rcsfw to make the VM IP range accessible
    • ai: need to create a uab public to floating-public translation table
    • ai: need to embed table in DNS
    • read crowbar users guide as an intro to Chef. then learn chef.
    • reviewed how to access admin tools
    • storage billing at 100G increments approved. next up is how to poll for usage. each person needs to be a tenant.
    • ai: need an ubuntu desktop image in glance. may require contortion of launching vm with iso or getting iso in glance and then installing into a volume and then launch a subsequent instance from that volume
    • ai: jpr: apply changes to ceph read caching, requires nova-compute restart. pending understanding crowbar and chef
    • todo: we need access to the admin node interface via the controller
    • todo: we need to engage with dell on crowbar limitation on storage use, don't know if we get improvements from storage.
  • matlab
    • how to handle large data set with multiple features
    • in ram but with millions of data point we aren't getting to the GB boundary so not a big issue
