[nova] NUMA scheduling
This is very odd, I am running NUMA aware openstack cloud and my VMs
are getting scheduled on both sides of NUMA zone. Following is my
flavor settings. Also I am using huge pages for performance. (make
sure you have NUMATopologyFilter filter configured).
hw:cpu_policy='dedicated', hw:cpu_sockets='2', hw:cpu_threads='2',
what if you remove hw:numa_nodes=1 ?
