 Networking plug-ins

OpenStack Networking introduces the concept of a plug-in, which is a back-end implementation of the OpenStack Networking API. A plug-in can use a variety of technologies to implement the logical API requests. Some OpenStack Networking plug-ins might use basic Linux VLANs and IP tables, while others might use more advanced technologies, such as L2-in-L3 tunneling or OpenFlow. These sections detail the configuration options for the various plug-ins.


The following plugins have been removed in Kilo:

  • Ryu plugin. The Ryu team recommends that you migrate to the ML2 plugin with the ofagent mechanism driver. However, note that the functionality is not the same. There is no upgrade procedure currently available.

  • Mellanox plugin.
