with gre a full-mesh architecture is created. A lot of GRE interfaces
are created, and i don't know how many interfaces are supported in

this web page summarize scalability issue for cloudstack, but with ovs
and GRE  (in openstack, it's a single Mesh architecture):


Moreover, a GRE doesn't use NIC offloading, it is very CPU consuming,
it could be a possible issue at scale, with VM which flood the network


With folsom, only one l3-agent is supported, which will do the SNAT
and floating-ips. With a lot of VM accessing external network and a
lot of floating-ips, this l3-agent could get down, but I don't know
