zones-for-google-cloud

Extract a list of zones in Google Compute Engine[tm] suitable for starting a particular VM.

You can specify the region of the world (prefix), CPU type (platform), number of CPUs, disk, or other requirements and get a list of zones that are "UP" where your project has quota meeting these requirements.

Bear in mind that doesn't mean you won't get a ZONE_RESOURCE_POOL_EXHAUSTED or similar error, but since it returns a list of zones, you can then write your code to retry, do random choice, or temporary blacklisting, or other techniques to improve success rate on vm launch.

Installation

npm i @google-cloud/compute -S npm i zones-for-google-cloud -S

JS Engine Compatiblity

Includes ES6+ code. Intended for deployment on node.js

Initialization

const compute = require('@google-cloud/compute')(); // requires credentials when run outside of Google Cloud
const zonesForGoogleCloud = require('zones-for-google-cloud')(compute);

Usage

returns Promises

{...} is a placeholder for additional code

Resolves to an Array of Strings containing names of some Google Compute Engine Zones that are UP, start with us-, support Intel Skylake (required for 64 or 96 cpu VMs), in a region where you have at least 64 PREEMPTIBLE_CPUS (or CPUS, if PREEMPTIBLE_CPUS quota is undefined) quota

zonesForGoogleCloud.find({
   prefix: 'us-',
   platform: 'Intel Skylake',
   requirements: { PREEMPTIBLE_CPUS: 64 }
}).then(...startMyVMInOneOfTheseZones...)

All parameters are optional, in which case you get a list of all zones that are up.

requirements is an object, where the keys are Google Cloud Platform regional metrics and the values are the additional amounts needed. The METRICS ARE ALL CAPS and match the metric names in gcloud compute region describe us-central1

Tests

The tests were run on a Google Cloud VM with full access to Google Compute Engine.

Running these tests outside Google Cloud will fail unless appropriate credentials are added to the line initializing compute.
