Openstack Nova Proxy

Nova-Proxy acts as the same role of Nova-Compute in cascading OpenStack. Nova-Proxy treats cascaded Nova as its hypervisor, convert the internal request message from the message bus to restful API calling to cascaded Nova.

Key modules

  • The new nova proxy module manager_proxy,which is configured to manage specified Availability Zone cascaded Nova. All VM in the cascaded Nova of this AZ will be bind to the manager_proxy host in the cascading level:

    nova/compute/manager_proxy.py

  • The code include clients of various component service(nova neutron cinder glance),through the client you can call cascaded various component service API by restful API

    nova/compute/clients.py

  • The solution of that clients gets token or checks token from token: nova/compute/compute_context.py nova/compute/compute_keystoneclient.py

Requirements

  • openstack-nova-compute-2014.1-23.1 has been installed

Installation

We provide two ways to install the nova proxy code. In this section, we will guide you through installing the nova proxy with the minimum configuration.

  • Note:

    • Make sure you have an existing installation of Openstack Icehouse.
    • We recommend that you Do backup at least the following files before installation, because they are to be overwritten or modified: $NOVA_CONFIG_PARENT_DIR/nova.conf (replace the $... with actual directory names.)
  • Manual Installation

    • Make sure you have performed backups properly.

    • Navigate to the local repository and copy the contents in 'nova' sub-directory to the corresponding places in existing nova, e.g. cp -r $LOCAL_REPOSITORY_DIR/nova $NOVA_PARENT_DIR (replace the $... with actual directory name.)

    • Update the nova configuration file (e.g. /etc/nova/nova.conf) with the minimum option below. If the option already exists, modify its value, otherwise add it to the config file. Check the "Configurations" section below for a full configuration guide.

      [DEFAULT]
      ...
      ###configuration for Nova cascading ###
      proxy_region_name=$proxy_region_name
      cascading_nova_url=$cascading_nova_url
      cascaded_nova_url=$cascaded_nova_url
      cascaded_neutron_url=$cascaded_neutron_url
      cascaded_glance_flag=False
      cascaded_glance_url=$cascaded_glance_url
      os_region_name=$os_region_name
      keystone_auth_url=$keystone_auth_url
      cinder_endpoint_template=$cinder_endpoint_template
      compute_manager=nova.compute.manager_proxy.ComputeManager
      
    • Restart the nova proxy. service nova-compute restart

    • Done. The nova proxy should be working with a demo configuration.

  • Automatic Installation

    • Make sure you have performed backups properly.

    • Navigate to the installation directory and run installation script.

      cd $LOCAL_REPOSITORY_DIR/installation
      sudo bash ./install.sh
      

      (replace the $... with actual directory name.)

    • Done. The installation code should setup the nova proxy with the minimum configuration below. Check the "Configurations" section for a full configuration guide.

      [DEFAULT]
      ...
      ###cascade info ###
      proxy_region_name=$proxy_region_name
      cascading_nova_url=$cascading_nova_url
      cascaded_nova_url=$cascaded_nova_url
      cascaded_neutron_url=$cascaded_neutron_url
      cascaded_glance_flag=False
      cascaded_glance_url=$cascaded_glance_url
      os_region_name=$os_region_name
      keystone_auth_url=$keystone_auth_url
      cinder_endpoint_template=$cinder_endpoint_template
      compute_manager=nova.compute.manager_proxy.ComputeManager
      
      
  • Troubleshooting

    In case the automatic installation process is not complete, please check the followings:

    • Make sure your OpenStack version is Icehouse.

    • Check the variables in the beginning of the install.sh scripts. Your installation directories may be different from the default values we provide.

    • The installation code will automatically add the related codes to $NOVA_PARENT_DIR/nova and modify the related configuration.

    • In case the automatic installation does not work, try to install manually.

Configurations

  • This is a (default) configuration sample for the nova proxy. Please add/modify these options in /etc/nova/nova.conf.
  • Note:
    • Please carefully make sure that options in the configuration file are not duplicated. If an option name already exists, modify its value instead of adding a new one of the same name.
    • Please refer to the 'Configuration Details' section below for proper configuration and usage of costs and constraints.
