linode.clone() API Llamada

Nos complace anunciar nuestra nueva llamada API : linode.clone(). Esta llamada API le permite clonar fácilmente una Linode existente a una nueva instancia en el centro de datos que usted elija. Clonará todos los perfiles de configuración y las imágenes de disco presentes en el Linode fuente.

El método tiene un límite de cinco clones concurrentes desde el mismo origen Linode para proteger la infraestructura de Linode . Si se intenta ejecutar otro clon mientras se está en el límite de concurrencia, el API regresará con un error de "validación". Si deseas ejecutar un proceso de clonación a gran escala, el Linode original puede ser clonado cinco veces, luego una vez que esos clones terminen, los Linodes clonados pueden entonces ser clonados cada uno cinco veces concurrentemente, y así sucesivamente. Esto le permite escalar rápidamente su infraestructura de un solo Linode a cientos.

Esperamos que disfrute de esta nueva llamada de API y que sea útil para sus futuras implementaciones en la nube Linode.

    Wow, great!

    We’ve been looking for something like this for a while

    Are there any pre-requisites for this API Call?
    Is the Linode need to be shutdown or will be shutdown during the clone process?

    How long would it take to clone? Is it the same thing as if its done from the console?

    AWESOME! Been waiting for this for so long, at least now we can script our scaling activities!

    Can we get one for checking the amount of bandwidth/transfer used for the current month next? (To compare against the existing call for finding the quota.)

    “It is recommended that the source Linode be powered down during the clone.”

    The source Linode doesn’t have to be powered down, but it is recommended to ensure that a consistent copy of your data is cloned.

    > How long would it take to clone? Is it the same thing as if its done from the console?

    1-2 minutes per GB of data within the same datacenter of the source Linode (the Linode you’re cloning from), or 5-10 minutes per GB of data if migrating to a different datacenter.

    I assume that you should not .clone() a Linode that has static networking set up, since the static confi will render the new node unreachable… or am I missing something?

    You could still clone the Linode, but you’d need to use LISH to log in to the new Linode and adjust the networking configuration to the new IP address(es).

    Tony Yarusso:

    There isn’t currently a way to see how much transfer a particular Linode has used that I can see, but shows transfer pool amount and usage:

    How would you suggest auto scaling in an HA environment where you want to clone and configure network addresses all in one go?

    The limitation of 5 clones per source linode seems very arbitrary – you’re just offloading additional work to the side of the script doing the cloning. You might think we’re going to keep track of the clone count on our own, but the truth is we’re just going to iterate over existing linodes until the clone() call returns without an error.

    What difference could it possibly make on your end whether we clone a single linode 10 times versus cloning an initial linode 5 times, and then cloning the first clone 5 additional times? There should be no difference in your ability to “protect Linode infrastructure”..?

    Xof brought up a good question regarding the static networking setup causing new node unreachable. May I know what is the best solution for that in Linode? Doug’s suggestion to login using LISH and change it manually doesn’t make sense to me, as it defeats the purpose of autoscaling.
