Stage 1: Configure¶
The first stage in the Scaling Journey is Configure.
This stage is about fine-tuning configuration options and optimizing the parameters for your OpenStack cluster, so that it can handle additional load. The default values for configuration parameters in OpenStack are not always well-suited for handling scale, and OpenStack documentation does not always indicate which parameters to adjust with scale. This page aims to help answer those early questions.
Once your cluster is properly configured to handle scale, you can go to the second stage of the Scaling Journey: Monitor.
