Hello Xav, we also had problems with namespaces in Juno. Maybe a little different than what you describe.
we are running about 250 namespaces in our network node. When we reboot the network node we observe that some namespaces have qr-* and qg-* interfaces missing. we believe that is because the control plane in neutron juno performs very badly. This is probably fixed in Kilo. to work around it, after the network node is up and running, we do reset the namespaces that have interfaces missing: neutron router-update <UUID> --admin-state-up false sleep 5 neutron router-update <UUID> --admin-state-up true Saverio 2015-11-24 9:51 GMT+01:00 Xav Paice <xavpa...@gmail.com>: > Neutron is Juno, on Trusty boxes with the 3.19 LTS kernel.
