OOF

VFC-OOF Interaction

A. VFC-NSLCM calls VFC-GVNFM driver through RESTful api to create VNF.
B. VFC-GVNFM invokes VFC-VNFLCM through RESTful api to do the 
creation(which requires bunch of time) and returns the VNF information(Almost synchronous).
( I. VFC-LCM calls VFC-GVNFM to apply for grant.
  J. VFC-GVNFM driver invokes VFC-NSLCM to provide the grant info.
  K. VFC-NSLCM provides grant info along with placement from OOF to VFC-GVNFM driver
  L. VFC-GVNFM transmits the information to VFC-VNFLCM to go through
     the following steps for instantiation.)
During the creation period(Step B.):
C. VFC-NSLCM calls OOF for homing allocation service using the VNF information returned.
D. OOF calls POLICY to retrieve related policies for such service/VNF.
E. OOF calls AAI to get all available cloud regions or existing instances inside the database.
F. OOF processes the homing allocation.
G. OOF respond to VFC-NSLCM with the optimal placement.
H. VFC-NSLCM stores the data returned by OOF into its database.


The integration between OOF and VFC can be divided into 4 phases:

  • VFC send out homing request to OOF(Step C.)
  • OOF retrieve the requirements(policies) for that service/VNF inside Policy(Step D.)
  • OOF check AAI database for existing instances/available cloud regions(Step E.)
  • OOF process homing allocation and return homing placement to VFC (Step F. and G.)

VFC send out homing request to OOF

A module inside NSLCM will call OOF to get homing allocation placement. And it will use the same API using by SO. Sample request using these API:

      "modelVersionId": "1a32426f-3616-47d0-96eb-b20cc7fff9be //Id get from CSAR"
    }
  }
}


OOF retrieve the requirements(policies) for that service/VNF inside Policy

Based on the request from VF-C, OOF need to retrieve policies for that VNF/service. Sample Policy schema will look like this:

Note: Since flavor_label and sriov_nic_label are not needed by VFC, the values inside directives will be leave as blank or default values.

OOF retrieve HPA policies for VFC
#
#Example 1: vCPE, Basic Capability and sriovNICNetwork
#one VNFC(VFC) with one basic capability requirement and two sriovNICNetwork requirements

OOF check AAI database for existing instances/available cloud regions

The data in AAI still follows the routine schema designed in HPA Policies and Mappings. The only part has been changed is inside sriovNICNetwork. We added one 'directive' attributes to contain the 'vnic_type' and 'physicalNetwork' that needed by VF-C.

Here we just provide data for one sample flavor including the requirements for the previous example:

OOF process homing allocation and return homing placement to VF-C

OOF will match the requirements inside the policies with the data of the available candidates(cloud-regions or existing candiates) to find an optimal solution to place that service.

After OOF gives out the most appropriate placement for that VNF/services, it will respond the solution back to VF-C with schema like below. Then a module in NSLCM will get that response and store them inside its Database for later instantiation.

OpenStack Config SRIOV

Openstack configuration:

  1. NIC configuration  refer to https://docs.openstack.org/neutron/pike/admin/config-sriov.html
  2. An example of a site having three types of compute nodes.   1st set of compute nodes have two SRIOV NIC cards with vendor/device id as 1234, 5678 and vendor/device id as 2345 &6789. 2nd set of compute nodes have two SRIOV-NIC of same type 4321 & 8765. And the third set of compute nodes don't have any SRIOV-NIC cards.  And hence OpenStack administrator at the site creates three flavors to reflect the hardware the site has.  As you see in this example, it is expected that alias format is followed. Alias value supposed to be of the form "NIC-sriov-<vendor ID>-<device ID>-<Provider network>

     $ openstack flavor create flavor1 --id auto --ram 512 --disk 40 --vcpus 4

     $ openstack flavor set flavor1 --property pci_passthrough:alias=sriov-nic-intel-8086-0443-physnet1:1

     $ openstack flavor set flavor1 --property pci_passthrough:alias=sriov-nic-intel-6808-3440-physnet2:1


Multi-cloud discovery

When it reads the flavors information from OpenStack site, if the pci_passthrough alias starts with SRIOV-NIV, then it assumes that it is SRIOV NIC type.

Next two integers are meant for vendor id and device id.

If it is present after device id, it is assumed to be provider network.

As part of discovery, it populates the A&AI with two PCIe features for Flavor1.
