Re: [openstack-dev] [tc][neutron] Proposal to split Neutron into separate repositories

2014-11-30 Thread henry hly
FWaas is typically classified to L4-L7. But if they are developed
standalone, it would be very difficult for implementing with a
distributed manner. For example, with W-E traffic control in DVR mode,
we can't rely on a external python client rest api call, the policy
execution module must be loaded as the L3 agent extension, or another
service-policy agent in the compute node.

My suggestion is that starting with LB and VPN as a trial, which can
never be distributed. FW is very tightly coupled with L3, so leaving
it for discuss some time later may be more smooth.

 early days as the team mostly focused on building out layers 2 and 3;
 however, we’ve run into growth challenges as the project started building
 out layers 4 through 7.  Initially, we thought that development would float
 across all layers of the networking stack, but the reality is that the
 development concentrates around either layer 2 and 3 or layers 4 through 7.
 In the last few cycles, we’ve also discovered that these concentrations have
 different velocities and a single core team forces one to match the other to
 the detriment of the one forced to slow down.

 Going forward we want to divide the Neutron repository into two separate
 repositories lead by a common Networking PTL.  The current mission of the
 program will remain unchanged [1].  The split would be as follows:

 Neutron (Layer 2 and 3)
 - Provides REST service and technology agnostic abstractions for layer 2 and
 layer 3 services.

 Neutron Advanced Services Library (Layers 4 through 7)
 - A python library which is co-released with Neutron
 - The advance service library provides controllers that can be configured to
 manage the abstractions for layer 4 through 7 services.

 Mechanics of the split:
 - Both repositories are members of the same program, so the specs repository
 would continue to be shared during the Kilo cycle.  The PTL and the drivers
 team will retain approval responsibilities they now share.
 - The split would occur around Kilo-1 (subject to coordination of the Infra
 and Networking teams). The timing is designed to enable the proposed REST
 changes to land around the time of the December development sprint.
 - The core team for each repository will be determined and proposed by Kyle
 Mestery for approval by the current core team.
 - The Neutron Server and the Neutron Adv Services Library would be co-gated
 to ensure that incompatibilities are not introduced.
 - The Advance Service Library would be an optional dependency of Neutron, so
 integrated cross-project checks would not be required to enable it during
 testing.
 - The split should not adversely impact operators and the Networking program
 should maintain standard OpenStack compatibility and deprecation cycles.

 This proposal to divide into two repositories achieved a strong consensus at
 the recent Paris Design Summit and it does not conflict with the current
 governance model or any proposals circulating as part of the ‘Big Tent’
 discussion.

Just wondering- have you considered a deeper decomposition? This has
turned up e.g. during discussions in the Ironic context where having
an API driven DHCP environment would be great, but all the virtual
network management of Neutron is irrelevant.

E.g - having a collection of minimal do-one-thing-well APIs with a
common model. More SOA than we are today, but easier to reason about
for individual deployments, and providing an arguably clearer place
for vendors that have entirely different backends for various services
to plug into.

Re: [openstack-dev] [tc][neutron] Proposal to split Neutron into separate repositories

2014-11-19 Thread Ivar Lazzaro
While I agree that a unified endpoint could be a good solution for now, I
think that the easiest way of doing this would be by implementing it as an
external Neutron service.

Using python entry_points, the advanced service extensions can be loaded in
Neutron just like we do today (using neutron.conf).

We will basically have a new project for which Neutron will be a dependency
(not the other way around!) so that any module of Neutron can be
imported/used just like the new code was living within Neutron itself.

As far as UTs are concerned, Neutron will also be in the test-requirements
for the new project, which means that any existing UT framework in Neutron
today can be easily reused by the new services.

This is compliant with the requirement that Neutron stays the only
endpoint, giving the ability to the user to load the new services when she
wants by configuring Neutron alone, while separating the concerns more
easily and clearly.

 Services code base? Would the REST API to talk to those services be part of
 the Neutron repository?


This is a good question.

Also, I would love to have more details about the following point:

- The Advance Service Library would be an optional dependency of Neutron


If I understand correctly, the Advanced Services implementation will
probably use Neutron's resources for L2/L3 connectivity (eg. create a
port). So why are we planning on having this library as a Neutron's
dependency and not the way around?
Wouldn't this require extra changes in Neutron to happen before the split
can happen? Also, shouldn't the AS APIs exist in the AS project?

Imho, having this project act as an external Neutron extension makes more
sense. Have you considered this option? It requires less cross-project
changes and provides a very clear separation of concerns.

Thanks for your heads up,
Ivar.

Hi,

 so the specs repository would continue to be shared during the Kilo cycle.

One of the reasons to split is that these two teams have different priorities 
and velocities.  Wouldn’t that be easier to track/manage as separate launchpad 
projects and specs repos, irrespective of who is approving them?

We had considered having a standalone REST service, but the Advance Services 
need a level of integration with Neutron that is more than REST and RPC can 
provide.  So the initial plan is to have the operator configure the Neutron 
REST service to load the appropriate Advance Service controller modules.  This 
would enable the operators to continue to deploy a single endpoint and preserve 
existing user tools.

The integration interface would be formalized as part of the current 
refactoring work being completed during the Kilo cycle.

Mark, Kyle,

What is the strategy for tracking the progress and all the details about
this initiative? Blueprint spec, wiki page, or something else?

One thing I personally found useful about the spec approach adopted in [1],
was that we could quickly and effectively incorporate community feedback;
having said that I am not sure that the same approach makes sense here,
hence the question.

Also, what happens for experimental efforts that are neither L2-3 nor L4-7
(e.g. TaaS or NFV related ones?), but they may still benefit from this
decomposition (as it promotes better separation of responsibilities)? Where
would they live? I am not sure we made any particular progress of the
incubator project idea that was floated a while back.

Actually, I don't agree with this.  I'm fairly sure that a combination of
REST and notifications *could* provide advanced services with the
information they require, so they could be a standalone, and optional,
service with its own API endpoint.  But the issue is that the interface
Neutron has today is clearly not sufficient for the needs of the advanced
services we have, and we would need to add APIs to facilitate that split
when we wanted to take this further.

 Would it make sense to define the advanced services repo as being for
 services that are beyond basic connectivity and routing? For example, VPN
 can be L2 and L3. Seems like restricting to L4-L7 may cause some confusion
 as to what’s in and what’s out.

Thats a good question, and what has been asked here in the context of
VPNaaS as well. Hence the proposed definition below avoids
characterizing the advanced services project purely as L4-7 because
that would not be accurate (in the context of any of existing three
services, or proposed new services).
