HI Abhijeet,

For Kilo you need to use ovsdpdk mechanism driver and a matching agent to integrate ovs-dpdk with OpenStack.

The guide you are following only talks about running ovs-dpdk not how it should be integrated with OpenStack.

Please follow this guide:
https://github.com/openstack/networking-ovs-dpdk/blob/stable/kilo/doc/source/getstarted/ubuntu.rst

Best regards
Przemek

Hi Przemek,


We have configured the accelerated data path between a physical interface to the VM using openvswitch netdev-dpdk with vhost-user support. The VM created with this special data path and vhost library, I am calling as DPDK instance.

If assigning ip manually to the newly created Cirros VM instance, We are able to make 2 VM's to communicate on the same compute node. Else it's not associating any ip through DHCP though DHCP is in compute node only.

Yes it's a compute + controller node setup and we are using following software platform on compute node:
_____________
Openstack: Kilo
Distribution: Ubuntu 14.04
OVS Version: 2.4.0
DPDK 2.0.0
_____________

We are following the intel guide https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2015/06/09/building-vhost-user-for-ovs-today-using-dpdk-200

When doing "ovs-vsctl show" in compute node, it shows below output:

Further we don't know what all the network changes(Packet Flow addition) if required for associating IP address through the DHCP.

Would be really appreciate if have clarity on DHCP flow establishment.



Thanks & Regards

Hi Abhijeet,

If you answer below questions it will help me understand your problem.

What do you mean by DPDK instance?
Are you able to communicate with other VM's on the same compute node?
Can you check if the DHCP requests arrive on the controller node? (I'm assuming this is at least compute+ controller setup)

Best regards
Przemek
