Dear All,

There are multiple proposal floating around flow classifier rules for Liberty [1], [2] and [3].

I feel we all should work together and try to address all our use case having a unified framework rather than working separately achieving the same  goal.

Moreover, I can find the proposal for flow classifier as defined by the existing SFC [2] proposal is too generic and could address all the use cases by minor extension's.

In this regard, I would like all to come forward, exchange their thoughts, work together and make it happen good the first go rather doing the same effort separately and end up in duplicating code & effort :(.

I always feel less code will make our life happy in the long run ;)

Please let me know about your views.

[1] Add Neutron API extensions for packet forwarding


[2] Neutron API for Service Chaining [Flow Filter resource]


[3] QoS API Extension [Defines classifier rule in QoSRule. Classifier rule can really grow big in the long run]:
