3.4. Configure resize

Resize (or Server resize) is the ability to change the flavor of a server, thus allowing it to upscale or downscale according to user needs. For this feature to work properly, you might need to configure some underlying virt layers.

3.4.1. KVM

Resize on KVM is implemented currently by transferring the images between compute nodes over ssh. For KVM you need hostnames to resolve properly and passwordless ssh access between your compute hosts. Direct access from one compute host to another is needed to copy the VM file across.
