vFW with HPA Tutorial: Setting Up and Configuration

Description

This use case makes modifications to the regular vFW use case in ONAP by giving the VMs certain hardware features (such as SRIOV NIC, CPU pinning, pci passthrough.. etc.) in order to enhance their performance. Multiple cloud regions with flavors that have HPA features are registered with ONAP. We then create policies that specify the HPA requirements of each VM in the use case. When a service instance is created with OOF specified as the homing solution, OOF responds with the homing solution (cloud region) and flavor directives that meet the requirements specified in the policy. This tutorial covers enhancements 1 to 5 in Background of https://wiki.onap.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=41421112. It focuses on Test Plan 1.

Setting Up and Installation

Some fixes for HPA support were made subsequent to the release of the Casablanca images. Several updated docker images need to be used to utilize the fixes. The details of the docker images that need to be used and the issues that are fixed are described at this link https://wiki.onap.org/display/DW/Docker+image+updates+for+HPA+vFW+testing

Instructions for updating the manifest of ONAP docker images can be found here: https://onap.readthedocs.io/en/casablanca/submodules/integration.git/docs/#deploying-an-updated-docker-manifest

Install OOM ONAP using the deploy script in the integration repo. Instructions for this can be found in this link https://wiki.onap.org/display/DW/OOM+Component. When the installation is complete (all the pods are either in running or completed state) Do the following;

  1. Check that all the required components were deployed;
oom-rancher# helm list
  1. Check the state of the pods;

    oom-rancher# kubectl get pods -n onap

  2. Run robot health check

    oom-rancher# cd oom/kubernetes/robot

    oom-rancher# ./ete-k8s.sh onap health

    Ensure all the required components pass the health tests

  3. Modify the SO bpmn configmap to change the SO vnf adapter endpoint to v2

    oom-rancher#    kubectl -n onap edit configmap dev-so-so-bpmn-infra-app-configmap

    - vnf:

              endpoint: http://so-openstack-adapter.onap:8087/services/VnfAdapter

              rest:

                endpoint: http://so-openstack-adapter.onap:8087/services/rest/v1/vnfs

    + vnf:

              endpoint: http://so-openstack-adapter.onap:8087/services/VnfAdapter

              rest:

                endpoint: http://so-openstack-adapter.onap:8087/services/rest/v2/vnfs

    Then delete the bpmn pod

    oom-rancher#  kubectl delete pod <pod-name> -n onap

  4. Run robot healthdist

    oom-rancher# ./ete-k8s.sh onap healthdist

  5. Run robot demo init, this initializes the default Demonstration customer and distributes the default models

oom-rancher# ./demo-k8s.sh onap init
  1. Create HPA flavors in cloud regions to be registered with ONAP. All HPA flavor names must start with onap. During our tests, 3 cloud regions were registered and we created flavors in each cloud. The flavors match the flavors described in the test plan here.
  • Cloud Region One

    Create Host aggregate for different sriov nic extra specs. In this cloud region, there are two types;

    #nova aggregate-create sriov-host  nova

    #nova aggregate-set-metadata 25 sriov_nic=sriov-nic-intel-8086-154C-private-1:2 (25 is the list number for the new aggregate, this is shown when the aggregate is created)

    #openstack host list (Check for host name, hostname is controller-0 in my simplex system)

    #nova aggregate-add-host 25 controller-0

    #nova aggregate-create sriov-host-agg2 nova (a new host aggregate needs to be created for different extra specs)

  1. Check that the cloud complex has the right values and update if it does not. Required values are;

    “elevation”: “example-elevation-val-28399”,

    “lata”: “example-lata-val-28399”,

    “country”: “USA”,

    “latitude”: “32.89948”,

    “longitude”: “97.045443”,

    “postal-code”: “00000

If an update is needed, the update can be done via rest using curl or postman

curl -X PUT \

  1. Register new cloud regions. This can be done using instructions (Step 1 to Step 3) on this page. If SRIOV NICs are going to be used, an openstack user with admin priviledges must be specified in the ESR section of the put command in step 1. The already existing CloudOwner and cloud complex can be used. Multicloud must be able to see flavors for all the clouds registered with ONAP or else you may issues with OOF. If step 3 does not work using the k8s ip and external port. It can be done using the internal ip address and port. Exec into any pod and run the command from the pod.
  • Get msb-iag internal ip address and port
oom-rancher#  kubectl get services -n onap |grep msb-iag
  • Exec into any pod (oof in this case) and run curl command, you may need to install curl

    oom-rancher#  kubectl exec dev-oof-oof-6c848594c5-5khps -it -- bash

  1. Put required subscription list into tenant for all the newly added cloud regions. An easy way to do this is to do a get on the default cloud region, copy the tenant information with the subscription. Then paste it in your put command and modify the region id, tenant-id, tenant-name and resource-version.

GET COMMAND

  1. Onboard the vFW HPA template. The templates can be gotten from the demo repo. The heat and env files used are located in demo/heat/vFW_HPA/vFW/, if SRIOV NICs are going to be used for any of the VMs, use the SRIOV NIC heat templates in demo/heat/vFW_HPA/vFW_SRIOV_NIC/. Create a zip file using the files. For onboarding instructions see steps 4 to 9 of vFWCL instantiation, testing and debugging. Note that in step 5, only one VSP is created. For the VSP the option to submit for testing in step 5cii was not shown. So you can check in and certify the VSP and proceed to step 6.
  2. Get the parameters (model info, model invarant id…etc) required to create a service instance via rest. This can be done by creating a service instance via VID as in step 10 of vFWCL instantiation, testing and debugging. After creating the service instance, exec into the SO bpmn pod and look into the /app/logs/bpmn/debug.log file. Search for the service instance and look for its request details. Then populate the parameters required to create a service instance via rest in step 13 below.
  3. Create a service instance rest request but do not create service instance yet. Specify OOF as the homing solution and multicloud as the orchestrator. Be sure to use a service instance name that does not exist and populate the parameters with values gotten from step 12.

  1. Get the resourceModuleName to be used for creating policies. This can be gotten from the CSAR file of the service model created. However, an easy way to get the resourceModuleName is to send the service instance create request in step 13 above. This will fail as there are no policies but you can then go into the bpmn debug.log file and get its value by searching for resourcemodulename.
  2. Create policies. For instructions to do this, look in method 2 (Manual upload) of OOF - HPA guide for integration testing. Put in the correct resouceModuleName. This is located in the resources section of the rest request. For example the resourceModuleName in the distance policy is 7400fd06C75f4a44A68f. When creating policies that include SRIOV NICs, be sure to specify both provider networks in the policy (can also be specified in the heat templates or preload), note that all interfaces on the same network must have the same vnic type.
  3. Do a get to verify all the polcies have been put in correctly. This can be done by doing an exec into the policy-pdp pod and running the following curl command.
curl -k -v -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Accept: application/json' -H 'ClientAuth: cHl0aG9uOnRlc3Q=' -H 'Authorization: Basic dGVzdHBkcDphbHBoYTEyMw==' -H 'Environment: TEST' -X POST -d '{"policyName": "OSDF_CASABLANCA.*", "configAttributes": {"policyScope": "us"}}' 'https://pdp:8081/pdp/api/getConfig' | python -m json.tool

To Update a policy, use the following curl command. Modify the policy as required

Useful Links for Policy Creation

  1. Create Service Instance using step 13 above
  2. Check bpmn logs to ensure that OOF sent homing response and flavor directives.
  3. Create vnf using VID as in 10f and 10g in vFWCL instantiation, testing and debugging. Any cloud region may be specified, it will automatically be replaced by the homing solution provided by OOF.
  4. Do SDNC Preload. Instructions for this can be found in this video (Fast forward to 3:55 in the video). The contents of my preload file are shown below, (Any non space separated string can be specified for flavors and provider net, the OOF directive will fill in the right flavors and network names. All the vnic types can be set to normal, the OOF directive will change the required interfaces to direct if SRIOV is used)

  1. Create vf module (11g of vFWCL instantiation, testing and debugging). Use the cloud region specied in the vnf creation (This will automatically be replaced with the OOF homing solution). If everything worked properly, you should see the stack created in your VIM(WR titanium cloud openstack in this case). Note that when deleting a VF module, the right cloud region on which the stack was created must be specified.
