Installation guide for Dragonflow, Keep in mind that Dragonflow is still in beta.
Require Open vSwitch 2.5.0
git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack-dev/devstack
Copy one of the following as your
local.confto your devstack folder
- Edit local.conf according to your configuration, See Detailed Installation for more details, or the Devstack configuration manual
DHCP configuration (IPv4 Only Environment)
no configuration needed
DHCP configuration (mixed IPv4/IPv6 or pure IPv6)
If the q-dhcp is installed on a different Node from the q-svc
Please add the following flag to the neutron.conf on the q-svc node
Meta data and cloud init
In order to enable the VMs to get configuration like public keys, hostnames, etc.. you need to enable meta service. You can do it by adding the following lines to local.conf file (before running 'stack.sh' command):
enable_service q-meta enable_service q-dhcp
For the meta service to work correctly, another "hidden" service must be started. It is called meta-service-proxy and it is used to forward meta data client requests to real meta service. By default, it is started by regular q-dhcp service for each tenant. As a result 'q-meta' and 'q-dhcp' services must be enabled.
Choose one of the following Database drivers in your local.conf
Ram Cloud Database:
Important parameters that needs to be set in
HOST_IP <- The management IP address of the current node FIXED_RANGE <- The overlay network address and mask FIXED_NETWORK_SIZE <- Size of the overlay network NETWORK_GATEWAY <- Default gateway for the overlay network FLOATING_RANGE <- Network address and range for Floating IP addresses (in the public network) Q_FLOATING_ALLOCATION_POOL <- range to allow allocation of floating IP from (within FLOATING_RANGE) PUBLIC_NETWORK_GATEWAY <- Default gateway for the public network SERVICE_HOST <- Management IP address of the controller node MYSQL_HOST <- Management IP address of the controller node RABBIT_HOST <- Management IP address of the controller node GLANCE_HOSTPORT <- Management IP address of the controller node (Leave the port as-is)
You can find example configuration files in the multi-node-conf or the single-node-conf directories.
Automated setup using Vagrant + Virtualbox
You can check northbound database by using db-df utility, see details in Testing and Debugging.
