Weekly Ironic Project Team Meeting

If you're interested in bare metal deployments with OpenStack, please join us. This meeting is where we'll talk about the Ironic project, an evolution of the Nova Baremetal driver. Anyone is welcome to add items to the agenda below, or bring up their topic during the open discussion at the end of each meeting.

Meetings are held in the #openstack-meeting room on irc.freenode.net at 19:00 UTC on Mondays. The next meeting is scheduled for September 30th, 2013 (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20130930T1900).

Following this meeting is the TripleO team meeting, which often also discusses issues related to bare metal deployments.

Agenda for next meeting

  • Greeting, roll-call and announcements.
  • Integration and testing
    • diskimage-builder element - on hold?
  • Outstanding or in-progress tasks:

      • Yes we have a client repo too! Repo
      • What should Ironic's service_type be when registering with keystone?
    • Ironic: The Real Java Driver what_is_it?
  • API discussion:
    • vendor_passthru: return values and HTTP methods allowed for this resource 41976 Abandoned????
      • decided that clients will do something like POST '{"foo": "bar"}' /nodes/1/vendor_passthru/<method>
        • where method doesn't exist in the api code
        • allow POST and GET
        • rpc side? general 'notify' or single 'passthru' method?
          • single passthru
        • what should it return?
          • return something like 202 and say that the request is fine but it is async so there's no ret value
          • use GET to retrive status
        • we are not introspecting the user data at all!
          • only driver should veryfy data
          • should data have any requirments / limits? (ie. size < 1k, must be json, etc..)
  • Food For Thought:
    • How will Ironic integrate / interface with nova?
      • can we replace nova baremetal incrementally?
    • How will Ironic handle networking / Ip's / neutron?
      • Don's ( dkehn ) Neutron patches have Landed! How will this impact Ironic?
    • Keystone options not reflected in sample.conf Missing Options

      • Kernel param
      • Dhcp option tag
      • Dns name
      • Other?
    • How will Ironic handle > then 1 conductor
      • can / should we pin chassis and nodes to a conductor?
      • How will Ironic handle HA and scaling over all?
      • how will Ironic fit in / scale with other openstack stories (Ie. TripleO)
  • open discussion
