Rethinking scheduler design

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Currently the scheduler exhaustively searches for an optimal solution to requirements given in a provisioning request. I would like to explore breaking down the scheduler problem in to less-than-optimal, but "good enough" answers being given. I believe this approach could deal with a couple of current problems that I see with the scheduler and also move us towards a generic scheduler framework that all of OpenStack can take advantage of:

-Scheduling requests for a deployment with hundreds of nodes take seconds to fulfill. For deployments with thousands of nodes this can be minutes.

-The global nature of the current method does not lend itself to scale and parallelism.

-There are still features that we need in the scheduler such as affinity that are difficult to express and add more complexity to the problem.
