Expand description

A representative of STORAGE and COMPUTE that maintains summaries of the involved objects.

The Controller provides the ability to create and manipulate storage and compute instances. Each of Storage and Compute provide their own controllers, accessed through the storage() and compute(instance_id) methods. It is an error to access a compute instance before it has been created.

The controller also provides a recv() method that returns responses from the storage and compute layers, which may remain of value to the interested user. With time, these responses may be thinned down in an effort to make the controller more self contained.

Consult the StorageController and ComputeController documentation for more information about each of these interfaces.



  • A client that maintains soft state and validates commands, in addition to forwarding them.
