Neutron is a virtual network service for OpenStack, and a part of
Netstack. Just like OpenStack Nova provides an API to dynamically
request and configure virtual servers, Neutron provides an API to
dynamically request and configure virtual networks. These networks
connect "interfaces" from other OpenStack services (e.g., virtual NICs
from Nova VMs). The Neutron API supports extensions to provide
advanced network capabilities (e.g., QoS, ACLs, network monitoring,
This charm provides the OpenStack Neutron API service.
This principle charm provides the OpenStack Neutron API service which was previously provided by the nova-cloud-controller charm.
When this charm is related to the nova-cloud-controller charm the nova-cloud controller charm will shutdown its api service, de-register it from keystone and inform the compute nodes of the new neutron url.
To deploy (partial deployment only):
juju deploy neutron-api
juju deploy neutron-openvswitch
juju add-relation neutron-api mysql
juju add-relation neutron-api rabbitmq-server
juju add-relation neutron-api neutron-openvswitch
juju add-relation neutron-api nova-cloud-controller
This charm also supports scale out and high availability using the hacluster charm:
juju deploy hacluster neutron-hacluster
juju add-unit neutron-api
juju set neutron-api vip=<VIP FOR ACCESS>
juju add-relation neutron-hacluster neutron-api
This charm only support deployment with OpenStack Icehouse or better.
