With the new API and object model refactor there have been some issues arising dealing with the status of entities. The main issue is that Listener, Pool, Member, and Health Monitor can exist independent of a Load Balancer. The Load Balancer is the entity that will contain the information about which driver to use (through provider or flavor). If a Listener, Pool, Member, or Health Monitor is created without a link to a Load Balancer, then what status does it have? At this point it only exists in the database and is really just waiting to be provisioned by a driver/backend.
Some possibilities discussed: A new status of QUEUED, PENDING_ACTIVE, SCHEDULED, or some other name Entities just remain in PENDING_CREATE until provisioned by a driver Entities just remain in ACTIVE until provisioned by a driver Opinions and suggestions? _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
