While the elections proceed, apologies on behalf of the TSC for the long delay for not having this considered sooner after the email back and forth. The proposal has been around for a long time - that people may have lost the context to have it for the vote in today's TSC meeting (or the next as since some of the TSC may be out on vacations). Hence I think it will be better to vote over email as it will give folks a chance to go thru the proposal again and overall will be faster than waiting for the next appropriate APAC TSC meeting. I will just take the liberty to initiate the vote.

TSC members - please vote +1 (approve), 0 (no comments), -1 (disapprove)

I've started a mail thread for telemetry project propasal ( at 06/11. Since the new TSC has been elected, I hope we can resume the review as GNT project. 

Do we need another 2 weeks for the new TSC member to review these new project propasal? If we need the 2 weeks window, we will miss the next APAC meeting.

I believe GNC project has asked for TSC review for a while, do we know if there is an Asia time TSC next week?

Kaiyuan, if there will be an Asia time TSC, would you be able to present the project, then you can request TSC to vote. However this is Christmas time and you want to survey TSCs  to be sure we have quorum.

Hi, Vivek, All

Thanks, Vivek, you are right. The GNT project only focus on the monitoring and analytics of the topo for all southbound devices, including the overlay topo and underlay topo. I think the two projects have no overlap.

Hi Sam, All,


I have checked GNT details again, and found that actually there is no overlap with GENIUS. It appears that the focus of GNT is mainly on monitoring and analytics,   and it does not intend to perform any southbound rendering/data-plane programming for application services (NetVirt/SCF), which GENIUS does. GNT team can confirm this.

With this understanding, from my side it would be a ‘go’ for GNT.

Including Daya and Vivek S on this thread. I believe there were some questions regarding overlap with the Genius project. It would be good to wait until they confirm that.

Thanks An. 


To GNT team,

I just quickly read through the GNT proposal.

 A few comments .  If the project only provides an unified view of the topology and track the changes of the topology across different vendor devices, it is going  to be very   complementary to FaaS since FaaS is more focus on the abstraction of the topology and provides logical network services over the abstracted topology.

But In the scope, it also states “At present, the logical network of this project is based on the implementation of neutron, features can also  be extended   if ODL users have other logical network models. “,

Sounds GNT also provides services on top of the topo and wondering what services it provides, if it provides Neutron like L2/L3 services as the quote above implies, then that seems overlaps with FaaS goal in some degree.

+Adding FAAS Mailing List


It would be great to see some cross project discussion and collaboration in this area, especially  if there may exist some potential overlap.

Was there any discussions on how GNT compares to FaaS [1]? They seem similar in scope and seems like we had a similar discussion about scope overlap when FaaS was proposed.


Also would GNT use the TTP project or something similar?

I'll plan to close discussion here on September 13th, so that we can try to vote by the September 14th TSC meeting and record the result there.


Please ask any more questions you have.
