whenever l2gateway_agnet.ini is reconfigured to the same ovsdb identifier but different IP, then we need to clean the mysql db entries from earlier configured ovsdb_identifier and IP. For Ex: l2gateway_agent is connected to "ovsdb1:10.10.10.10:6632", but when you change l2gateway_agent.ini to "ovsdb1:184.108.40.206:6632", then the mysql entries related to "ovsdb1:10.10.10.10:6632" should be cleaned.

API's and implementations to support L2 Gateways in Neutron.

This project proposes a Neutron API extension that can be used to express and manage L2 Gateway components. In the simplest terms L2 Gateways are meant to bridge two or more networks together to make them look at a single L2 broadcast domain.
There are a number of use cases that can be addressed by an L2 Gateway API. Most notably in cloud computing environments, a typical use case is bridging the virtual with the physical. Translate this to Neutron and the OpenStack world, and this means relying on L2 Gateway capabilities to extend Neutron logical (overlay) networks into physical (provider) networks that are outside the OpenStack realm. These networks can be, for instance, VLAN's that may or may not be managed by OpenStack.
For help using or hacking on L2GW, you can send an email to the OpenStack Development Mailing List <mailto:email@example.com>; please use the [L2-Gateway] Tag in the subject. Most folks involved hang out on the IRC channel #openstack-neutron.
