This page is currently a draft.
This page describes the DB (database) usage by our Openstack deployments.
Production deployments must use a production database server/service, probably m5-master.eqiad.wmnet in coordination with the DBA team. Some deployments use a local mysql database in the control boxes.
Each component of Openstack uses a different database: nova, nova-api, glance, keystone, neutron, etc.
Openstack services require a specific set of database GRANTs to work:
We had some issues in the past because Openstack assumes unlimited usage capabilities in the database. This is not true in our case, specially in production, since m5-master.eqiad.wmnet is shared with other different services.
TODO: elaborate in what has been done by Brooke to throttle connections.
