13:06:57 <sagar_nikam> i may not be able to join
13:06:59 <claudiub|2> so, they've been setting up a hyper-v node for testing
13:07:05 <sagar_nikam> its past mid niht for me
13:07:11 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:07:16 <claudiub|2> they want to see with their own eyes that it works
13:07:22 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:07:31 <sagar_nikam> i saw your mail with the instructions
13:07:35 <claudiub|2> yeah.
13:07:50 <sagar_nikam> did not see them reply back that they are tryin the install
13:07:50 <claudiub|2> other than that, just minor comments and reviews on the patches.
13:08:07 <claudiub|2> #topic Hyper-V OVS vif plug driver
13:08:15 <claudiub|2> just a minor update
13:08:20 <claudiub|2> the os-vif patch merged.
13:08:38 <sagar_nikam> the nova patch ... correct ?
13:08:54 <claudiub|2> #link os-vif patch: Adds Windows support for OvsPlugin: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/344433/
13:09:04 <claudiub|2> just the os-vif patch.
13:09:20 <claudiub|2> the nova patch was frozen before the os-vif patch merged.
13:09:29 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:09:44 <claudiub|2> #topic Windows Containers status
13:09:51 <claudiub|2> atuvenie: helloo. :)
13:10:24 <atuvenie> hello :)
13:10:46 <atuvenie> so, the folks over at aprenda have a working branch, they plan to make a pull request
13:11:10 <atuvenie> I have to look over that and see how to integrate their work with our plans for using OVS
13:11:52 <atuvenie> that's about it
13:12:27 <claudiub|2> yeay, thanks for the news. :)
13:13:50 <sagar_nikam> are containers stable in windows ?
13:13:59 <sagar_nikam> never tried that .... yet
13:14:40 <claudiub|2> atuvenie: ^
13:15:16 <atuvenie> sagar_nikam: well, for my purposes sure, I have not seen major changes between TP4 and TP5
13:15:42 <sagar_nikam> atuvenie: thanks
13:16:04 <atuvenie> sagar_nikam: I do know there are plans to change the powershell cmdlets for working with containers to align with docker
13:16:24 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:17:02 <claudiub|2> moving on
13:17:03 <sagar_nikam> once you have it all working... let us know... we will try and let you know how it all works
13:17:35 <claudiub|2> #topic Newton release status
13:17:48 <claudiub|2> soo, still testing. looks fine so far.
13:18:12 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:18:47 <claudiub|2> we've added a checkbox in our Openstack Hyper-V Compute driver installer for enabling / disabling neutron security groups.
13:19:26 <sagar_nikam> why ? dont we want SGs by default ?
13:20:04 <claudiub|2> yes, by default, but it can be turned off, if someone doesn't want security groups anyways
13:20:22 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:20:38 <claudiub|2> we're also doing some performance tests and improvements. for the moment, there are ~10% smaller spawn times.
13:20:52 <claudiub|2> still in progress
13:21:40 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:21:43 <claudiub|2> #topic open discussion
13:22:05 <sagar_nikam> i was speaking to Sonu today. His team is planning for scale tests on Mitaka sometime
13:22:05 <claudiub|2> that's about it from my part.
13:22:26 <claudiub|2> sagar_nikam: any estimates on when that's going to happen?
13:22:33 <sagar_nikam> we have done scale tests on liberty and found 2x scale improvement
13:22:44 <sagar_nikam> as compared to Kilo
13:23:01 <claudiub|2> cool. :)
13:23:01 <sagar_nikam> now we want to try Mitaka and compare with liberty
13:23:12 <sagar_nikam> in Kilo we wen tto 1000 VMs
13:23:21 <sagar_nikam> in liberty we went to 2000 VMs
13:23:21 <claudiub|2> yeah, mitaka should be even better, from what we've tested in the last cycle.
13:23:41 <sagar_nikam> if we had more hardware, i am pretty sure .. we would have gone further
13:23:42 <claudiub|2> i forgot what the improvement rate was from liberty to mitaka
13:24:18 <sagar_nikam> claudiub|2: not sure.. depends on the slot which we get for scale hardware
13:24:42 <sagar_nikam> liberty to mitaka... not yet done
13:24:49 <sagar_nikam> that is the next plan
13:24:58 <sagar_nikam> as and wehn we get a slot in the scale lab
13:25:10 <sagar_nikam> but is planned
13:25:15 <claudiub|2> sagar_nikam: i see. well, let us know how it goes. :)
13:25:25 <sagar_nikam> yes... we will let you know
13:25:34 <sagar_nikam> and see if we can improve further
13:25:43 <sagar_nikam> this time i am trying to get more hardware
13:25:53 <sagar_nikam> so as to reach 4000 to 5000 VMs
13:26:05 <sagar_nikam> not sure when it will happen
13:26:06 <claudiub|2> ooh, nice. :D
13:26:28 <sagar_nikam> all depends on the scale lab agreeing to provide more hardware for hyperv
13:26:47 <sagar_nikam> let us see how it goes... will keep you informed
13:27:06 <claudiub|2> nice. :) any other news from your side?
13:27:14 <sagar_nikam> i had a question
13:27:23 <claudiub|2> sure
13:27:42 <sagar_nikam> i remember you or somebody from cloudbase had submitted a BP and patches for
13:27:49 <sagar_nikam> GPU support
13:27:53 <claudiub|2> ah yes
13:27:55 <sagar_nikam> to instances
13:27:56 <claudiub|2> RemoteFX
13:28:02 <sagar_nikam> what happened to that
13:28:03 <claudiub|2> yep, that merged in Newton. :)
13:28:06 <claudiub|2> fully
13:28:08 <sagar_nikam> yes RemoteFX
13:28:17 <sagar_nikam> wow !!! cool
13:28:30 <claudiub|2> and it has been available in compute-hyperv since Kilo, i think
13:28:34 <sagar_nikam> did you actually test with hardware which had GPU ?
13:28:47 <claudiub|2> yep, that's how we tested it
13:28:51 <sagar_nikam> nvidia
13:28:54 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:29:06 <claudiub|2> yeah, not sure the exact model of the card
13:29:08 <claudiub|2> but worked fine
13:29:14 <claudiub|2> I've tested it for 2016 as well
13:29:15 <sagar_nikam> i had a similar BP for VMWare some 3 releases back
13:29:34 <claudiub|2> and I even got to install steam + video games in a VM. :D
13:29:35 <sagar_nikam> submitted multiple patches... never got merged as my code was not getting reviewed
13:29:54 <claudiub|2> I got to have fun with that blueprint. :D
13:30:03 <claudiub|2> i see
13:30:26 <sagar_nikam> claudiub|2: you have some write up or some docs on how to use nova hyperv driver for RemoteFX ?
13:30:31 <claudiub|2> #link Adds RemoteFX support to the Hyper-V Driver: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/42529/
13:30:46 <claudiub|2> I have a draft article about it
13:30:54 <claudiub|2> it should be published some time soon.
13:31:22 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:31:23 <claudiub|2> at the very least, you can read the nova release notes regarding RemoteFX: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/42529/26/releasenotes/notes/bp-hyper-v-remotefx-1474ef1a082ad1b0.yaml
13:31:45 <claudiub|2> you'll have to have enable_remotefx = True in the nova.conf file though
13:32:01 <claudiub|2> you can read about it the release notes
13:32:01 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:32:09 <sagar_nikam> this is in newton ?
13:32:12 <claudiub|2> yes
13:32:13 <sagar_nikam> or mitaka
13:32:15 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:32:27 <sagar_nikam> i will have to wait till newton to use it
13:32:27 <claudiub|2> but then again, the feature exists in compute-hyperv since kilo. :)
13:32:37 <claudiub|2> anyways, I've only tested the feature with windows 10 VMs
13:33:01 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:33:09 <sagar_nikam> i guess it should work with windows 7 as well
13:33:22 <claudiub|2> and I noticed that the guest OS must have support for RemoteFX, otherwise, its not useful to add a RemoteFX vGPU to the instance
13:33:52 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:34:07 <sagar_nikam> can you share the doc when it is ready
13:34:20 <sagar_nikam> we will try it as soon we move to newton
13:34:21 <claudiub|2> for example, windows 10 Pro didn't support RemoteFX, windows 10 Enterprise supports RemoteFX
13:34:41 <sagar_nikam> also are the patches easily backportable to mitaka
13:35:04 <sagar_nikam> i will try backport in our downstream repo
13:35:39 <claudiub|2> hm, I'd say for the most part, yes.
13:36:05 <claudiub|2> but there might be a few merge conflicts, especially in the tests
13:36:18 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:37:07 <claudiub|2> anything else?
13:37:24 <sagar_nikam> not anything as of now
13:37:42 <sagar_nikam> we will soon start moving fully to mitaka
13:37:51 <sagar_nikam> and start the tests all over again
13:37:57 <sagar_nikam> will keep you posted
13:38:04 <claudiub|2> sounds good. :)
13:38:16 <sagar_nikam> i am done
13:38:25 <claudiub|2> also, let us know if you're going to test remote fx as well
13:38:42 <sagar_nikam> remote fx ... let me try sometime
13:38:46 <sagar_nikam> not so soon
13:38:52 <claudiub|2> ok
13:39:02 <sagar_nikam> first we will try to check all other functionality in mitaka
13:39:06 <sagar_nikam> and the scale tests
13:39:17 <sagar_nikam> later priority will be remotefx
13:39:31 <claudiub|2> i see
13:39:48 <claudiub|2> well then, we can end this meeting early. :)
13:39:57 <sagar_nikam> yes...
13:39:58 <claudiub|2> hopefully by next week we will have some good news about monasca. :)
13:40:07 <sagar_nikam> yes i hope so
13:40:11 <claudiub|2> thanks all for joining, see you next week!
13:40:17 <sagar_nikam> keep me posted on how the reviews go
13:40:20 <sagar_nikam> on skype
13:40:28 <claudiub|2> will do. :)
13:40:33 <sagar_nikam> i will try to get any help that you need
13:40:49 <sagar_nikam> even i want monasca hyperv to be merged at the earliest
13:40:49 <claudiub|2> thanks. :)
