Image quota is counting the 'external' locations

Won't Fix

Bug Description

Based on current design/implement, we're calculating the image disk usage against ALL locations, no matter it's external or stored in the configured backend. See

It doesn't make sense since the external location shouldn't be counted since it's not using the space of backend.

I'm going to mark this as Won't Fix, but it's temporary based on the discussion with markwash. I will create a blueprint to track the improvements of image quota and link this bug to it.

(02:14:28 PM) markwash: just about to go to bed
(02:14:36 PM) flwang: markwash: ok, 3 minutes
(02:14:48 PM) flwang: markwash:
(02:15:04 PM) flwang: markwash: pls take a look at Eoghan's 2nd comments
(02:15:25 PM) flwang: markwash: I think it's a good point for quota calculating
(02:15:52 PM) flwang: markwash: I'd like to know your thoughts before filing a bug
(02:16:49 PM) markwash: hmm
(02:16:57 PM) markwash: yes this is why we thought quotas were silly :-)
(02:17:26 PM) flwang: markwash: hehe
(02:17:36 PM) markwash: basically, image storage quotas only make sense if you are otherwise constraining your storage system
(02:17:50 PM) markwash: like enforcing it so that all images are stored in the same way
(02:18:06 PM) markwash: I think we should open a bug about it, but probably mark it as "wontfix" and add a description for why
(02:18:36 PM) markwash: it's a temporary wontfix, in the sense that if we did come up with a good way for tracking quotas per store, we could do that
(02:18:50 PM) flwang: markwash: got it
(02:18:54 PM) markwash: maybe we can even look into a blueprint for that, but its sort of complicated
(02:19:34 PM) flwang: markwash: do you think we can create a bp to track the quota improvement, including this?
(02:19:52 PM) flwang: and we can link the bug to the bp
(02:21:36 PM) markwash: sure
