Next Ubuntu and Mitaka are promising something ultra mega cool!
Look at this!
root at mitaka-1:~# apt install neutron-openvswitch-agent
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following additional packages will be installed:
dpdk libdpdk0 openvswitch-common openvswitch-switch
Xenial will brings DPDK-2.2 fully supported for 5 years!
However, I am curious about the following scenarios:
Will be possible to use, at the same time (same Network and Compute nodes
/ Host Aggregate):
1- Regular OVS bridges without DPDK for VXLAN Networks, with
2- OVS powered by DPDK for Provider Networks only ( without any firewall,
current case anyway, due to https://bugs.launchpad.net/neutron/+bug/1531205
I have NFV Instances that are also, DPDK L2 Bridges running on KVM Guest /
VirtIO, that are physically wired using Provider Networks (flat and vlans).
So, for the Instance's vNICs (eth1 and eth2) that are used as a L2 bridge,
I don't want any kind of ovs-firewall (I'm not affected by LP #1531205 on
this case) and I want OVS+DPDK under it but, for SSH into the Instance to
manage it (via its eth0), it is still using regular VXLAN with Security
Groups - OVS-Firewall from now on (no need for DPDK under eth0 / VXLAN).
I'm curious about this specially because the OVS Ubuntu package, makes use
of Debian's Alternatives subsystem, and we need to choose one OVS
(default), or another (with DPDK), via "update-alternatives", so, will be
possible to select OVS with DPDK but, use regular bridges with it as well
(for VXLAN networks)?
If yes, how to create a VXLAN network with regular OVS and another
FLAT/VLAN network with OVS+DPDK ?
Thanks in advance!
