Is it possible to run other services on the same host which is running Platform9 Services? (e.g. Docker)
- Platform9 Managed OpenStack - All Versions
It is not recommended that you run services/products other than the ones required for Platform9 Managed OpenStack (PMO) on the same hypervisor. While there are no inherent conflicts between PMO and other products it's possible that one of the other services will be starved for resources and run into errors.
OpenStack's default scheduling algorithm makes decisions based on allocation and not on current usage. This may result in virtual machines (VM) getting scheduled on hosts where some other process like Docker or Jenkins is already consuming a large portion of CPU and/or Memory. This will result in errored-out/non-functional VMs.
