CPU Pinning and NUMA Topology on RDO Kilo on Fedora Server 22

Posting bellow follows up http://redhatstackblog.redhat.com/2015/05/05/cpu-pinning-and-numa-topology-awareness-in-openstack-compute/
on RDO Kilo installed on Fedora 22 . After upgrade to upstream version of openstack-puppet-modules-2015.1.9 procedure of RDO Kilo install on F22 significantly changed. Details follow bellow :-
*****************************************************************************************
RDO Kilo set up on Fedora ( openstack-puppet-modules-2015.1.9-4.fc23.noarch)
*****************************************************************************************
# dnf install -y https://rdoproject.org/repos/rdo-release.rpm
# dnf install -y openstack-packstack
Generate answer-file and make update :-
# packstack  –gen-answer-file answer-file-aio.txt
and set CONFIG_KEYSTONE_SERVICE_NAME=httpd
****************************************************************************
I also commented out second line in  /etc/httpd/conf.d/mod_dnssd.conf
****************************************************************************
You might be hit by bug  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1249482
As pre-install step apply patch https://review.openstack.org/#/c/209032/
to fix neutron_api.pp. Location of puppet templates
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/packstack/puppet/templates.
You might be also hit by  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1234042
Workaround is in comments 6,11
****************
Then run :-
****************

# packstack  –answer-file=./answer-file-aio.txt

Final target is to reproduce mentioned article on i7 4790 Haswell CPU box, perform launching nova instance with CPU pinning.

On each Compute node that pinning of virtual machines will be permitted on open the /etc/nova/nova.conf file and make the following modifications:

Set the vcpu_pin_set value to a list or range of logical CPU cores to reserve for virtual machine processes. OpenStack Compute will ensure guest virtual machine instances are pinned to these virtual CPU cores.
vcpu_pin_set=2,3,6,7

Set the reserved_host_memory_mb to reserve RAM for host processes. For the purposes of testing used the default of 512 MB:
reserved_host_memory_mb=512

# systemctl restart openstack-nova-compute.service

************************************
SCHEDULER CONFIGURATION
************************************

Update /etc/nova/nova.conf

scheduler_default_filters=RetryFilter,AvailabilityZoneFilter,RamFilter,
ComputeFilter,ComputeCapabilitiesFilter,ImagePropertiesFilter,CoreFilter,
NUMATopologyFilter,AggregateInstanceExtraSpecsFilter

# systemctl restart openstack-nova-scheduler.service

At this point if creating a guest you may see some changes to appear in the XML, pinning the guest vCPU(s) to the cores listed in vcpu_pin_set:

<vcpu placement=’static’ cpuset=’2-3,6-7′>1</vcpu>

Add to vmlinuz grub2 command line at the end
isolcpus=2,3,6,7
