Moving this to the ml as requested, would appreciate

So, I recently proposed a small patch to the oslo rpc code (initially in
oslo-incubator then moved to oslo.messaging) which extends the existing
support for limiting the rpc thread pool so that concurrent requests can
be limited based on type/method. The blueprint and patch are here:


The basic idea is that if you have server with limited resources you may
want restrict operations that would impact those resources e.g. live
migrations on a specific hypervisor or volume formatting on particular
volume node. This patch allows you, admittedly in a very crude way, to
apply a fixed limit to a set of rpc methods. I would like to know
whether or not people think this is sort of thing would be useful or
whether it alludes to a more fundamental issue that should be dealt with
in a different manner.
