L3 Vendor plugins

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are several potential topics to discuss regarding vendor plugins for L3, such as:

- How to handle vendor specific validation (e.g. say a vendor has restrictions or added capabilities compared to the reference drivers for attributes). Maybe provide a validate/commit/apply override for actions similar to L2 plugin pre/postcommit?
- Providing neutron client with info on vendor capabilities (e.g. should help and validation be extended to include vendor capabilities or should it be delegated to server reporting?)
- Handling and reporting of device driver errors to the user (e.g. failure establishing a IPSec tunnel?) Maybe include a "last action results" field in database that can appear in show command?
- Provider selection for resources (e.g. should VPN IPSec policies have vendor specific policies or should we rely on checks at connection creation for policy compatibility?)
- Handling of multiple device drivers per vendor (e.g. have service driver determine which device driver to send RPC requests, or have agent determine what driver requests should go to - say based on the router type)

The goal would be to come up with schemes that could be used across different vendors and, if possible/sensible, across service types, and would apply for all implementations (including reference).
