os-vif is a library for plugging and unplugging virtual interfaces (VIFs) in OpenStack. It provides:

  • Versioned objects that represent various types of virtual interfaces and their components

  • Base VIF plugin class that supplies a plug() and unplug() interface

  • Plugins for two networking backends - Open vSwitch and Linux Bridge

os-vif is intended to define a common model for representing VIF types in OpenStack. With the exception of the two included plugins, all plugins for other networking backends are maintained in separate code repositories.
