storage minimum size and default size are conflated

Bug #1614072 reported by Stuart Bishop
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Juju native storage only allows you to specify a minimum size, which is also used as the default size. The minimum size will generally need to be as small as possible for test installs, which makes it a horrible default for real installs.

I'd like to see a separate default size attribute.

I'd also like a charm to declare 'no default size' and require the operator to explicitly state the desired size at add-storage time. If operators don't have a second chance to get it right, they need to be explicit. For example, failing to specify a large enough partition will cause data migration from local storage to the new partition to fail, breaking the unit and possibly destroying data.

Unfortunately we will not be able to address this issue for 2.1. I will remove it from the milestone.

Just to paraphrase, this is what you would like to see Correct?

Yes, that seems a better way of phrasing the feature.
