Revision as of 21:32, 4 August 2014 by Markmcclain (talk | contribs) (Group Policy (SumitNaiksatam))

The OpenStack Networking Team (Neutron) holds public meetings in #openstack-meeting on Monday at 2100 UTC. Everyone is encouraged to attend.

Apologies for Absence

Agenda for Next Neutron Team Meeting

Announcements / Reminders


These are new failures seen in gate:

    • [1] Lock wait timeout adding ipavailabilityranges
    • [2] Lock wait timeout adding ipallocationpools
    • [3] Lock wait timeout adding vip to vips table

These bugs are in nova but are related to neutron. It would be great if we could get neutron reviews on:

    • Merged [4] Remove unneeded call to fetch network info on shutdown - arosen
    • Merged [5] remove unneeded call to network_api on detach_interface - arosen
    • Merged [6] remove unneeded call to network_api on rebuild_instance - arosen
    • Merged [7] Optimize validate_networks to query neutron only when needed - arosen
    • [8] deallocate_for_instance should delete all neutron ports on error - arosen
    • [9] Fix port_security_enabled neutron extension - arosen
    • [10] Fix pre-created ports in neutron from being deleted by nova - arosen

Team Discussion Topics

  • Linuxbridge and OVS plugins will be removed from the tree this week or next

Nova Parity (markmcclain)

  • Gap 0: DB Migrations (complete):

Thanks to salv-orlando, HenryG, jlibsova, Ann and others for working on this.

  • Gap 1: Tempest Testing
    • (mlavelle tracking this item)
  • Gap 2: Grenade Testing
    • Work resumed now that Gap 0 has closed.
  • Gap 3: Neutron as the default in devstack
    • On hold pending Gaps 0 and 2
  • Gap 4: Missing API calls
    • Audit complete. Based on bug discussion no missed calls to add.
  • Gap 5: Neutron replacement for Nova multi-host
    • (carl_baldwin tracking as part of DVR work)
  • Gap 6: nova-net to neutron migration
  • Gap 7: Document Open Source Options
    • Planned for late Juno-2/3 no updates here.
    • Note: (emagana) The docs team has decided to not document all available options for plugins/drivers even if they are open-sourced.
      • The only options documented will be the default ones (i.e. ML2 with OVS).

Team meeting on Thursdays at 1500 UTC


Active Projects

  • neutron-ovs-dvr (meeting page)
    • Please see how to page. Need people willing to grab code and test.
    • Original patches are merged.
    • Juno-3 timeframe will be used for backlog work and hardening.
    • Working on getting experimental DVR test to pass all tempest tests. I believe we're getting close.
  • rootwrap-daemon-mode
    • Would like to know today if the -2 can be removed from the spec and code to attempt to make progress. I still feel this is important for performance and has good return on investment potential.
  • pluggable-ext-net
    • Blueprint missed deadline. I have concerns about getting this implemented in time for Juno anyway. Will push out to Kilo.
  • IPAM
    • Deferred until early Kilo.
  • DNS (carl_baldwin)
    • Deferred until Kilo.

Advanced Services (SumitNaiksatam)

(no new updates this week)

  • Juno plan and reviews:


IPv6 (sc68cal)

ML2 (rkukura/Sukhdev)

  • Weekly Meetings/ML2 are held, please attend if interested!
    • Will discuss Juno summit sessions this week and prioritize plans
