Hi, Roberttoggle quoted message Show quoted text
vpp data store isn't mirror of data store in honeycomb/vpp node, they are some intermediate data, vpp renderer and classifier will renderer them to real vpp data in honeycomb/vpp node, I'll work out a PoC to show you what it looks like.
we hope GBP guys can agree this, if you check Srikanthi's PoC and RPCs GBP vpp renderer provided, you can assume the vpp data store is just to save those parameters for those RPCs, for classifier, NetVirt defined its own classifier, GBP defined its own classifier, SFC defined its own classifier, we hope they can have common classifier then augment it by itself, all the projects should use IETF ACLs and IETF interfaces, if so, the vpp data store can share these data in ODL.

I think we have multiple input models (SFC, netvirt, GBP) being rendered onto a target device (which happens to be VPP, but it's really about models).
What would be the models for "VPP data store"? Is this a mirror of the SB device's model and are we talking about the proposed project performing the equivalent of FRM?
I am sorry, but it is extremely hard to distill scope from the proposal in its current form. I think it needs to be beefed up with details of interactions and needs to be vetted by all of GBP, SFC and NetVirt to make sure the proposal actually fits the use case.
Furthermore it would be very beneficial to understand how this plays with netconf topology -- as I mentioned "VPP node" is in reality any SB device implementing a specific set of models (either directly or through an adaptor).
