Exabgp in the lab
Moiz Raja <moraja@...>
During the napa Hackfest we had a discussion about doing some integration testing of the bgp plugin. To enable this testing we need to introduce a bgp speaker. Exabgp seems to fit the bill and a couple of us were able to get it working with the OpenDaylight controller.
The latest version of Exabgp has a dependency on python 2.7 and I have tested it myself with python 2.74 which is the same version that is currently on the downloadable open daylight test VM. My understanding is that our lab infrastructure uses python 2.6. I was wondering if we could upgrade the lab infrastructure to python 2.74. An alternative to switching to python 2.74 for everything would be to use something like virtualenv which is a python version manager that let’s us switch to a specific version of python for any given python program.
Please let me know what it would take to get this done.
