[openstack-dev] [Nova] Nova compute reports the disk usage

Actually, the system does not belong to us therefore we only had the log file. But it seems reasonable that besides the size of ephemeral diisk in _base, we also have the image of vm downloaded from Glance that consumes the disk capacity. That can make the strange value of disk_over_commit.
I will check this situation later. Btw, thank you for your help.

Just a thought...did you clear out the _base directory between tests? Or is there maybe an extra backing file sitting there consuming space?
