In conjunction with the release of VPP 17.07, I'd like to invite you all to
try out networking-vpp 17.07.1 for VPP 17.07. VPP is a fast userspace
forwarder based on the DPDK toolkit, and uses vector packet processing
algorithms to minimise the CPU time spent on each packet and maximise
throughput. networking-vpp is a ML2 mechanism driver that controls VPP on
your control and compute hosts to provide fast L2 forwarding under Neutron.
This version has a few additional enhancements, along with supporting the
VPP 17.07 API:
- remote security group IDs are now supported
- VXLAN GPE support now includes proxy ARP at the local forwarder
Along with this, there have been the usual bug fixes, code and test
The README  explains how you can try out VPP using devstack: the
devstack plugin will deploy etcd, the mechanism driver and VPP itself and
should give you a working system with a minimum of hassle.
We will continuing development between now and VPP's 17.10 release in
October. There are several features we're planning to work on (you'll find
a list in our RFE bugs at ), and we welcome anyone who would like to
come help us.
Everyone is welcome to join our biweekly IRC meetings, every other Monday
(the next one is due in a week), 0900 PDT = 1600 GMT.
