Hi All,

Deploying OpenStack can be a challenging task in a large-scale
environment, one of them being the networking side of all of this.

Each technology have their own environmental prerequisites. For
instance, VLAN needs to be configured as we expect; bandwidth should
meet our requirements,connection between nodes should be active, etc.
We have noticed these issues in our own deployments at UnitedStack and
created a tool to aid with pinpointing issues before and during

This tool has been developed as Open Source since day one and has been
on github, has been used in our own environments, and now available
under the OpenStack umbrella.

Please, have a look at: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Steth

We would really like your feedback on how to improve the tool and know

  * which usecases do you have ?
  * which features are you missing ?
  * what kind of issues do you encounter ?
  * or just to say hi ;-)

Do not hesitate to reply this email. We would like to keep the
discussions public, but if needed, you can also find us at the
OpenStack Summit.

kind regards,
