Newton Series Release Notes

Newton Series Release Notes


New Features

  • Added support for security groups in TOSCA template for type tosca.nodes.nfv.CP.Tacker.
  • Added API to fetch VNF components details.
  • VNF Forwarding Graph support is available as an EXPERIMENTAL feature. TOSCA NFV Profile based Forwarding Graph Descriptor can be uploaded to VNF-FGD Catalog. VNF-FFGD template describes both Classifier and Forwarding Path across a collection of Connection Points described in VNFDs. Using the template VNF FFG can be instantiated using the default Neutron networking-sfc driver.
  • VNF auto-scaling and manual-scaling feature is added, to scale in/out the VDUs.
  • Introduce uniqueness constraint on the name of Tacker resources such as VNFD, VNF, VIM, etc.

Known Issues

  • Logical source port need to be specified VNF-FFGD flow classifier section. This is due to the current restriction in Neutron networking-sfc flow-classifier API restriction. This behavior will be resolved once the underlying neutron issue is fixed.
  • Auto-scaling feature is supported only with alarm monitors and it does not work with other monitors such as ping, http_ping.
  • When VNF is modelled with scaling requirement in VNFD, any config managment requirement in VNFD is not supported.
  • Scaling feature does not support to selectively choose the VDU as part of scaling.

Deprecation Notes

  • Deriving infra_driver and mgmt_drvier from VNFD API is deprecated and will be removed in Ocata.
