octavia : diskimage-create.sh ignores -s flag ?


Hi there.

I have not used the "DIB_LOCAL_IMAGE" setting. Are you following the
example in the README
here?:https://github.com/openstack/octavia/tree/master/diskimage-create#using-distribution-packages-for-amphora-agent
The variable will need to be exported.

As for the -s setting for the image size, I do know this works. We use
this as part of our gate test jobs since the centos image must be 3GB
in size.
The only way -s wouldn't be honored would be if you have a
"AMP_IMAGESIZE" environment variable defined. That will override the
-s setting.

Also note, that the default "qcow2" format is compressed, the .qcow2
file output will not be the same size as you requested with -s. Only
when it is booted will it expand out to the full 10GB you specified
with -s.
