I am booting cirros VMs outside of an Openstack environment using libvirt. At boot, the VM checks for metadata twenty times, which adds a lot of latency to the boot time.
cirros-ds 'net' up at 6.14
checking http://169.254.169.254/2009-04-04/instance-id failed 1/20: up 6.18. request failed failed 2/20: up 18.32. request failed failed 3/20: up 30.38. request failed failed 4/20: up 42.44. request failed [snip]
I'm using cirros-0.3.3.
Can I use cloud-init or some other mechanism to disable the metadata lookup?
