Load Balancing as a Service (LBaaS) for OpenStack
Go to file
Michael Johnson 955bb88406 Refactor the failover flows
This patch refactors the failover flows to improve the performance
and reliability of failovers in Octavia.

Specific improvements are:
* More tasks and flows will retry when other OpenStack services are
* Failover can now succeed even when all of the amphora are missing
  for a given load balancer.
* It will check and repair the load balancer VIP should the VIP
  port(s) become corrupted in neutron.
* It will cleanup extra resources that may be associated with a
  load balancer in the event of a cloud service failure.

This patch also removes some dead code.
