Queens Series Release Notes

Queens Series Release Notes



As of the Queens release, neutron-lbaas is now deprecated and being replaced by the Octavia project. Please see the FAQ for more information: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Neutron/LBaaS/Deprecation

New Features

  • The proxy plugin sends all LBaaS V2 API requests sent to Neutron to Octavia thus by-passing the Neutron database. The proxy is specified instead of the ‘lbaasv2’ service plugin and called ‘lbaasv2-proxy’. Since the proxy bypasses Neutron any existing LBaaS drivers will be bypassed as well.

Deprecation Notes

Other Notes

  • This finishes the proxy plugin piece which proxies all LBaaS requests to Octavia V2 API. Quotas are enforced on both and so operators are advised to set them on both ends accordingly.

    If any driver other than the Octavia driver is currently used in this system operators need to perform the necessary migrations and/or wait until the respective driver is available or Octavia prior to activating this plugin.
