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.
|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|
