Subject [jira] [Commented] (STRATOS-507) Support to assign fixed private IPs and Port number in addition to network UUIDs for cartridges
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2014 18:43:45 GMT


Jeffrey Nguyen commented on STRATOS-507:

Thank you Nirmal and Reka for confirming the removal of existing
"networkInterfaces" and elasticIp properties.

As for the naming convention for the for the fixed IP, correct me if I'm
wrong but I thought the JSON payload is Iaas specific.  It is processed
as-is by the underlined Iaas.  As such, for OpenStack, we can use
"fixed_ip" for OpenStack based on
tml.  Otherwise, we need to have code at the OpenStack layer/adapter to
convert from "fixedIp" to "fixed_ip".

Just to make sure we're all on the same page, my intention is to treat all
these network properties as name/value pairs.  There's no code to deal
with specific network attributes.

Also, where exactly do you suggest the new "network" config section be?
Should it still be under "iaasProvider" but outside of the "property", or
should it be some where outside of "iaasProvider" section?

> Hi Stratos Devs,
> I'm currently working on Stratos enhancement to leverage new network API supported by
jClouds [1].
> In the current environment, when we attached a list of network UUIDs to a cartridge and
subscribe to this cartridge, the new instance will have private IPs randomly assigned to each
network.   We need the ability to specify fixed private IP for each network.
> In addition to fixed private IPs, we could also assign port UUIDs or whatever the underlined
Iaas supports for the networks configuration.
> I am currently working on jClouds enhancement [1].  This JIRA is for the changes required
on Stratos side.
> Please see [3] below on how the private IPs are specified in the JSON payload.
> In the existing implementation of multiple networks [2], the JSON cartridge definition
can specify multiple networks like one below.

>                     }
> Questions:
> - Should introduce new property for the new format or should I just use existing "networkInterfaces"
properties, which implies fixing [2]?  When invoking jClouds API, we should set the value
one way or the other, but not both.
> - In the current implementation of Stratos, all cartridge properties are treated as String.
 Therefore, with this new enhancement, the networks tuples need to escape the double quotes.
  Is this okay?
