Rocky Series Release Notes

7.0.0

New Features

  • Add support for building an Apache Storm image.
  • Add blazar-dashboard to horizon image.
  • Add congress-dashboard to horizon image.
  • Add freezer-scheduler dockerfile
  • Add support for building a Logstash 5.x image.
  • Add Monasca Thresh, an Apache Storm topology for alerting in Monasca.
  • Add support for networking-ansible. Installs networking-ansible ML2 driver in the neutron base image when building from source. Binary users can use neutron_server_packages_append to include python-networking-ansible when building neutron-server image.
  • Add networking-baremetal components: The baremetal ML2 mechanism driver and the ironic-neutron-agent L2 agent.

    Networking Baremetal provides deep integration between the Networking service and the Bare Metal service. Advanced networking features like notifications of port status changes and routed networks support in clouds with Bare Metal service.

    The ML2 mechanism driver is installed in the neutron-base image when building from source. Binary users can use neutron_server_packages_append to include the python-networking-baremetal package when building neutron-server image. The ironic-neutron-agent L2 agent is in the ironic-neutron-agent image.

  • Add Infoblox IPAM agent image. The agent will listen for neutron and nova events and automatically manage DNS entries within an Infoblox appliance. The agent will be started when ‘infoblox’ is selected as the neutron_ipam_driver.
  • Add octavia-dashboard to horizon image.
  • Add radvd docker container
  • Implement Glance zero-downtime upgrade logic.
  • Install sensu from centos-opstools for rpm based distros instead of from upstream sensu repository.
  • Support Kolla Ceph to deploy bluestore OSDs in Rocky release.
  • Adds new configuration parameter [DEFAULT]network_mode that is used when building the images. By default this is unset which will default to the docker environment’s default setting. You can specify ‘host’ which would use the host’s network when building the images. For other options, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/run/#network-settings
  • Prefer the headless JRE wherever possible. This may be necessary to adjust the override files for customizing the container images where java is installed.
  • Container image for prometheus alertmanager service under the docker/prometheus/ directory.
  • Added a container image for cAdvisor, to be used with Prometheus monitoring to gather resource utilization statistics of containers.
  • Container image for the prometheus memcached exporter under the docker/prometheus/ directory.
  • RPM based container images no longer include package documentation. This results in smaller images and faster builds.
  • Copy iPXE images to TFTP root during ironic_pxe bootstrap. This allows you to chainload iPXE from a PXE environment.
  • RPM based container images now include the latest security fixes available at the time of build.

Upgrade Notes

  • Upgrade elasticsearch and kibana to 5.X
  • The neutron-vpnaas-agent has been loaded just inside of the existing l3 agent rather than requiring operators to run a completely different binary with a subclass of the existing L3 agent.
  • Ubuntu base image is upgrade from xenial to bionic.
