Date Tue, 08 Jan 2013 23:16:13 GMT


David Nalley commented on CLOUDSTACK-740:

FS design docs:
Email thread:
Branch: Network refactor

I am going to assume that no new docs will be needed, but that extensive testing will be required
of all networking interactions.

> The NetworkManager is a fairly monolithic and large piece of code that both orchestrates
and serves as the service layer for CloudStack networking. Large code == difficult to maintain
and understand and test.
> The idea is to
>  - split it into smaller modules (initially a service layer and business logic layer)
>  - split the service layer into user and admin apis
>  - split the user layer into L2/L3/network services
>  - followed by splits in the orchestration side
