Newton Series Release Notes¶
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.
An alarm-based monitoring driver using Ceilometer is added. Alarm-based monitoring driver in Tacker is designed to collect alarms/events triggered by the Ceilometer. For details please refer http://docs.openstack.org/developer/tacker/devref/alarm_monitoring_usage_guide.html
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.
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.
Deriving infra_driver and mgmt_drvier from VNFD API is deprecated and will be removed in Ocata.
Core configuration file is automatically generated.
Added support for key_name in TOSCA template for type tosca.nodes.nfv.VDU.Tacker.
Add VIM health monitor to Tacker
Default HTTP port for tacker is set to 9890.
Tacker no longer includes static example configuration file. Instead, use tools/generate_config_file_sample.sh to generate it. The file is generated with a .sample extension under etc/tacker directory.
Made VNFD/VNF/VIM names mandatory in tacker.
Support for legacy templates for creating a VNFD is deprecated and will be removed in ‘Newton’ cycle. Please use TOSCA based templates.
Fixes bug 1603851, VIM registry should not use keystone information from tacker.conf. This fixed the VIM keystone v3 support.
