On success, an array of compute zones is returned.
XML Output example
Explanation of the data returned:
created_at - the date in the [YYYY][MM][DD]T[hh][mm][ss]Z format
federation_enabled - not relevant to compute zones
federation_id - not relevant to compute zones
closed - not relevant to compute zones
traded - true, if the zone came from the Federation and was subscribed to by the user
updated_at - the date when the compute zone was updated in the [YYYY][MM][DD]T[hh][mm][ss]Z format
default_gateway - external gateway IP address used for the VMware utilization with the external firewall. All virtual machines within a compute zone will be rerouted to this gateway
vlan - address of a VLAN the default gateway is located on.
id - the compute zone ID
label* - title of a compute zone
location_group_id - ID of a location group the compute zone is assigned to
max_vms_start_at_once - the maximum number of virtual servers that can be started simultaneously within this compute zone
network_failure - true, if all compute resources in the compute zone failed
prefer_local_reads - set 1 to minimize the network throughput dependency for read heavy workloads. When this option is enabled, reads go over the local software bridge to a local replica of the data rather than traverse a physical NIC + switch.
recovery_type - specify the compute resource selection algorithm, which will be used on virtual server provisioning and recovery, per compute zone:
roundrobin - set the roundrobin type to select the compute resource with maximum free RAM during the VS recovery
Note: this option behaves in different ways, depending on the event:
- On provisioning, the round-robin algorithm will be used on compute resource selection.
- On recovery, the compute resource with maximum free RAM will be selected.
- fillnext - select the fillnext type to select the compute resource with minimum required free RAM. This option allows to fill compute resource as tightly as possible before starting to use next appliance in the zone
release_resource_type - specify the release resource type. Release resource option allows to free up compute resource resources by over-committing RAM, CPU and CPU shares of virtual servers that are shut down.
memory_guarantee - the actual free compute resource memory is calculated. All virtual servers residing on the compute resource will be able to start.
ballooning - free compute resource memory is calculated with the ability to use memory over-committing. The ballooning option is only available for KVM compute resources. NOTE: Virtual server may be migrated to another compute resource if there is not enough memory for it to start up on the compute resource with the ballooning option enabled.
Do not use the ballooning option if there is at least one edge or storage server within the compute zone.
only_started_vms - only the free memory of running virtual servers is calculated.By default, the compute zone is created with the Memory Guarantee option enabled. In this case the release resources option is not used. Then, to enable resource over-committing you should choose either the Ballooning or Only Started VS option.
failover_timeout - time period for which the iterations will run during the failover
run_sysprep - set 1 to enable Windows virtual server deployment without running sysprep
server_type - specify the type of servers that will reside within this compute zone:
- virtual - choose the virtual type to create a Xen, KVM, VMware or CloudBoot zone
- smart - choose the smart server type to create a smart server zone
- baremetal - choose the baremetal server type to create a baremetal server zone
storage_channel - storage channel for the communication with the
max_host_free_memory - compute resource with maximum RAM value in this zone
max_host_cpu - compute resource with maximum RAM value in this zone
