Hey all!

Something that jumped out at me in Tokyo was how much it seemed that "basic" tuning stuff wasn't common knowledge. This was especially prevalent in the couple of rabbit talks I went to. So, in order to pool our resources, I started an Etherpad titled the "OpenStack Tuning Guide" (https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/OpenStack_Tuning_Guide). Eventually I expect this should go into the documentation project, and much of it may already exist in the operators manual (or elsewhere), but I thought that getting us all together to drop in our hints, tweaks, and best practices for tuning our systems to run OpenStack well, in real production, would be time well spent.

It's a work in progress at the moment, and we've only just started, but please feel free to check it out. Feedback and community involvement is super welcome, so please don't hesitate to modify it as you see fit.

Finally, I hate diverging resources, so if something like this already exists please speak up so we can focus our efforts on making sure that's up to date and well publicized.

Thanks everyone!
