<< Back to Policies

This is a generic, calendar-based site authority policy. The policy provides the common plumbing for dealing with multiple resource pools and reservations and isolates the logic of handling a specific resource pool to ResourceControl objects. A ResourceControl object is responsible for allocating resources from a give resource type (resource pool).

Orca ships with a number of companion ResourceControl objects that can handle a variety of substrates.

ResourceControl implementations:

No: Name Description
1 UnitsControl General-purpose, unit-based control
2 VlanControl Control for managing VLANs
3 VMControl Control for managing VMs (complex)
4 SimpleVMControl Control for managing VMs (simple, Eucalyptus)
5 BenNdlControl Control for allocation in BEN using NDL
