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 Calico Agent, managing
L3 connectivity on nova-compute services.
This subordinate charm provides the Neutron Calico configuration for a compute node.
Once deployed it takes over the management of the Neutron base and plugin configuration on the compute node.
For more information on Calico, check out the Project Calico homepage.
To deploy (partial deployment of linked charms only):
juju deploy rabbitmq-server
juju deploy neutron-api
juju deploy nova-compute
juju deploy cs:~kubernetes/etcd
juju deploy cs:~project-calico/neutron-calico
juju add-relation neutron-calico nova-compute
juju add-relation neutron-calico neutron-api
juju add-relation neutron-calico rabbitmq-server
juju add-relation neutron-calico etcd
When deploying at scale, you should optionally add a BGP route reflector:
juju deploy cs:~project-calico/bird
juju add-relation neutron-calico bird
It should only be used with OpenStack Icehouse and above and requires a separate neutron-api service to have been deployed.
