overcloud global response times are slower when 1 controller is offline

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • We have just re-installed our overcloud with RHOSP13 Z8.

  • Whenever we take one controller node offline we see a jump in the amount of time it takes to run openstack commands.

  • Whenever we take one controller in the cluster offline using following commands:

# pcs cluster stop
# shutdown now -P
  • The following table explains the situation quite eloquently:
    Action execution time with all controllers online execution time with one controller down
