Added new tool tacker-status upgrade check.

New Features

  • Added reservation policy support that will help to scale in/out the VDUs with reserved compute resources.

  • Add support SFC encapsulation from networking-sfc. This feature allows choosing SFC encapsulation between MPLS and NSH (default MPLS). It also apply SFC proxy to make use of correlation.

  • New framework for tacker-status upgrade check command is added. This framework allows adding various checks which can be run before a Tacker upgrade to ensure if the upgrade can be performed safely.

  • Added a new monitoring policy action vdu_autoheal to bring back the failed VDU. If a VNF contains one or more VDUs with monitoring policy action set to vdu_autoheal and if any one of the VDU is unreachable, it will simply delete the resources of that particular VDUs and re-create them again.

    The vdu_autoheal monitoring policy action is implemented only for openstack infra driver.

Bug Fixes

  • Earlier when Tacker service restarted, it failed to resume monitoring for VNFs.This issue is fixed and Tacker will resume monitoring for VNFs.

  • Fixed conflicting networking issue, When tacker install with Kubernetes VIM option.

  • Improve returned message of nsd-create: When creating nsd with non-existent vnfd in tosca template, it will return with NotFound error message instead of internal error. Improve returned message of create_vnffg: When create a vnffg with a missing network_src_port_id in vnffgd, instead of giving internal error it will return with FlowClassifierPortNotFound error message.

  • Starting from Ocata tacker payloads only accept YAML dict for config and param payload values. Hence remove the deprecation warning when something other than YAML dict is received by the API.

Other Notes

  • Tacker start using kestone v3 api only.

  • Multiple Test case addition, cleanup unused tests, and enabled skipped test cases. We still have multiple test cases to refactor.
