The octavia module is a part of OpenStack, an effort by the OpenStack infrastructure team to provide continuous integration testing and code review for OpenStack and OpenStack community projects not part of the core software. The module its self is used to flexibly configure and manage the scalable load balancer service for OpenStack.

Module Description

The octavia module is a thorough attempt to make Puppet capable of managing the entirety of octavia. This includes manifests to provision region specific endpoint and database connections. Types are shipped as part of the octavia module to assist in manipulation of configuration files.


What the octavia module affects

  • Octavia, the scalable load balancer service for OpenStack.

Installing octavia

octavia is not currently in Puppet Forge, but is anticipated to be added soon.  Once that happens, you'll be able to install octavia with:
puppet module install openstack/octavia

Beginning with octavia

To utilize the octavia module's functionality you will need to declare multiple resources.



octavia is a combination of Puppet manifest and ruby code to delivery configuration and extra functionality through types and providers.


  • All the octavia types use the CLI tools and so need to be ran on the octavia node.
