Keshava, This sounds like you're asking how you might do service function chaining with Neutron. Is that a fair way to characterize your thoughts? I think the concept of service chain provisioning in Neutron is worth some discussion, keeping in mind Neutron is not a fabric controller.

Please let me know does the below scenario analysis make sense. NFV Service VM's are hosted on cloud (OpenStack) where in there are 2 Tenants with different Service order of execution. (Service order what I have mentioned here is just an example ..) * Does OpenStack controls the order of Service execution for every packet ? * Does OpenStack will have different Service-Tag for different Service ? * If there are multiple features with in a Service-VM, how Service-Execution is controlled in that VM ? * After completion of a particular Service , how the next Service will be invoked ? Will there be pre-configured flows from OpenStack to invoke next service for tagged packet from Service-VM ?
