13:00:37 <claudiub> hellou
13:01:15 <claudiub> anyone here for the meeting?
13:04:28 <sagar_nikam> Hi
13:04:36 <claudiub> hello :)
13:04:53 <claudiub> was waiting for more people to join
13:05:01 <sagar_nikam> sorry bit late... my network went down
13:05:08 <sagar_nikam> sonu will join today
13:05:21 <claudiub> cool, shall we wait for him?
13:05:54 <sagar_nikam> we can start
13:06:05 <claudiub> ok
13:06:12 <sagar_nikam> he has some networking discussion... we can do it when he joins
13:06:17 <claudiub> #topic nova status
13:06:31 <claudiub> soo, the first ocata milestone is tomorrow
13:06:53 <claudiub> which means spec-freeze. that means that we can only propose new features until then.
13:07:26 <claudiub> the shielded vm spec is still up, unfortunately
13:07:48 <claudiub> and, I'd like to also get the hyper-v nested virtualization blueprint approved as well
13:08:04 <claudiub> i'll have to send a POC patch first, though.
13:08:15 <claudiub> I've already sent the patch needed for os-win
13:08:27 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:08:28 <claudiub> currently writing the nova bits
13:09:04 <claudiub> from the last summit discussion, the hyper-v nested virtualization blueprint doesn't need a spec
13:09:10 <claudiub> so, yeay. :)
13:09:16 <sagar_nikam> good
13:10:18 <claudiub> regarding the ovs vif plug patch, we're currently setting up the hyper-v ci to be able to run with ovs and neutron-ovs-agent instead of neutron-hyperv-agent
13:11:03 <claudiub> once that's done, we'll post some ci results on the patch, and ping the nova core about the patch
13:11:16 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:11:59 <sagar_nikam> there were some BPs you/cloudbase proposed for the NFV usecase
13:12:11 <sagar_nikam> in last cycle... what happened to those
13:12:15 <claudiub> regarding the os-brick in the hyper-v driver (+ FC), it got some core review comments, they were addressed, waiting for other reviews
13:12:42 <sagar_nikam> ok... good
13:12:46 <claudiub> but, this week, i'm not expecting a lot of reviews, since the cores are concentrating on blueprints / spec reviews, as the deadline is tomorrow
13:12:48 <sagar_nikam> hopeful FC gets merged soon
13:12:55 <claudiub> yep
13:13:21 <claudiub> sagar_nikam: regarding your question, there is the hyper-v vNUMA placement blueprint
13:13:56 <claudiub> which we've sent for review some time ago, and it is in compute-hyperv since mitaka, or liberty, if my memory doesn't fail
13:14:01 <sagar_nikam> correct.. this is the BP.. how is it going
13:14:30 <claudiub> it was reapproved for ocata
13:14:41 <claudiub> but no core reviews on the patch:
13:14:43 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:14:55 <claudiub> #link Hyper-V: Adds vNUMA implementation https://review.openstack.org/#/c/282407/
13:15:59 <claudiub> the pci implementation got some reviews
13:16:22 <claudiub> which needs to be addressed
13:16:35 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:17:03 <claudiub> moving on
13:17:09 <claudiub> #topic monasca status
13:17:29 <claudiub> so, one small patch merged since last week
13:17:43 <claudiub> got more comments, which i'll have to answer
13:17:47 <sagar_nikam> for which feature ?
13:17:55 <claudiub> got some merge conflicts, again. :)
13:18:14 <claudiub> sagar_nikam: this one: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/359453/
13:18:32 <claudiub> basically, it gets some performance counters from windows
13:18:53 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:19:09 <sagar_nikam> as on today... what shape is monasca+ hyperv... upstream
13:19:16 <sagar_nikam> what ever is merged
13:19:23 <sagar_nikam> can it be used ?
13:19:26 <sagar_nikam> as is...
13:19:43 <sagar_nikam> or more patches need to be merged... before it can get used
13:19:56 <claudiub> yep, you can start monasca-agent on windows
13:20:11 <sagar_nikam> and does it send the data ?
13:20:15 <sagar_nikam> to monasca
13:20:58 <claudiub> let me check for a second
13:23:50 <claudiub> checkers that have pending patches on monasca-agent: hyperv, cpu, disk; checkers that are working now: network, memory, process,  host_alive
13:23:59 <claudiub> and i thought i've sent a patch for iis checker
13:24:26 <claudiub> oh yeah
13:24:29 <claudiub> iis works as well
13:24:40 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:24:46 <claudiub> it was included with the wmi_checker
13:24:49 <sagar_nikam> cpu and disk
13:24:52 <claudiub> the last link i've sent
13:24:53 <sagar_nikam> are important
13:25:15 <sagar_nikam> i think we need to get it merged at the earliest
13:25:51 <claudiub> the other checkers, i haven't tested them yet. there are more than 40 checkers in total. Roland was suggesting those, as those are most commonly used.
13:26:38 <claudiub> you can see how many checkers are here: https://github.com/openstack/monasca-agent/tree/master/conf.d
13:27:53 <claudiub> any questions?
13:27:55 <sagar_nikam> agree... i think those are the important ones... especially the disk, cpu and memory
13:28:09 <sagar_nikam> no... we can move to next topic
13:28:30 <claudiub> #topic open discussion
13:29:20 <claudiub> sagar_nikam: so, last week I've asked if there is someone from your team that can help with getting monasca-log working on windows
13:29:56 <sagar_nikam> yes... most of my team is also new to monasca
13:30:10 <sagar_nikam> monasca team is in US
13:30:20 <sagar_nikam> india team does not work on it
13:30:37 <sagar_nikam> anyhow let me try ... not sure though
13:31:09 <claudiub> i see
13:31:18 <claudiub> well, let me know when you find out. :)
13:31:22 <sagar_nikam> india team works on nova and neutron
13:31:29 <sagar_nikam> for hyperv
13:31:59 <claudiub> have you tried hyper-v 2016 yet?
13:32:04 <sagar_nikam> sonu: are you there in the meeting ?
13:32:16 <sagar_nikam> claudiub: not yet
13:32:45 <sagar_nikam> we wanted to try nano... but did not proceed much
13:32:56 <sagar_nikam> as of now all our test systems are 2012 r2
13:33:25 <claudiub> i see
13:33:44 <claudiub> do you have any plans to upgrade in the near future?
13:34:52 <sagar_nikam> we wanted it on atleast one machine... but could not do it
13:34:59 <sagar_nikam> due to various reasons
13:35:02 <sagar_nikam> as of now
13:35:07 <sagar_nikam> we support only 2012 r2
13:35:22 <sagar_nikam> hence getting 2016 has been a challenge in test machines
13:35:56 <claudiub> hm, interesting
13:36:25 <sagar_nikam> cloudbase supports 2016?
13:36:29 <claudiub> yep
13:36:31 <sagar_nikam> for nova and neutron
13:36:35 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:36:39 <sagar_nikam> TP5 ?
13:36:46 <claudiub> that's been always a target, since it was officially announced
13:36:54 <claudiub> hyper-v 2016 has been released
13:37:16 <sagar_nikam> oh... missed that release announcement
13:37:21 <sagar_nikam> when was it released
13:38:09 <claudiub> you can already download it from microsoft's site: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-hyper-v-server-2016
13:38:35 <claudiub> i think it was sometime around the openstack summit in barcelona
13:39:08 <claudiub> but yeah, we do support 2016. :)
13:39:30 <claudiub> plus, we already have a few of the 2016's features in nova, like the upgraded support for remotefx
13:39:55 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:40:12 <sagar_nikam> may be for our next release we will try hyperv-2016
13:40:41 <claudiub> cool :)
13:40:55 <claudiub> any other news from your side?
13:41:14 <sagar_nikam> could you check the link i gave you last week on k8s on azure ?
13:43:59 <claudiub> hm, wondering how they're dealing with container networking across different hosts.
13:45:05 <sagar_nikam> and storage as well
13:45:17 <sagar_nikam> even i was curious
13:45:39 <sagar_nikam> one more question which i had was... containers are only supported in 2016
13:45:48 <claudiub> yep
13:45:59 <sagar_nikam> so does azure provision containers in 2016 ?
13:46:11 <sagar_nikam> and is it stable
13:46:14 <claudiub> that, i don't know :)
13:46:24 <sagar_nikam> that can be a good indication of its stability
13:46:46 <sagar_nikam> your team is not working with MS on this ?
13:46:51 <claudiub> yep, that's exactly my thought as well
13:46:54 <sagar_nikam> peter is not involved
13:47:03 <sagar_nikam> on containers ?
13:47:08 <sagar_nikam> from MS
13:48:28 <claudiub> hm, i don't keep in touch with peter, only rarely
13:48:44 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:48:50 <claudiub> sagar_nikam: any news from sonu?
13:49:03 <sagar_nikam> he wanted to join
13:49:10 <sagar_nikam> he mentioned me today as well
13:49:17 <sagar_nikam> some networking discussion with you
13:49:20 <sagar_nikam> on ovs
13:49:27 <sagar_nikam> he is not in office
13:49:35 <claudiub> a bug, or?
13:49:36 <sagar_nikam> might have got struck in traffic
13:50:17 <sagar_nikam> i think he is planning to use ovs for our next release mostly probably based on mitaka or newton
13:50:30 <sagar_nikam> and wanted to discuss some things on it
13:51:06 <claudiub> sounds good. :)
13:51:17 <sagar_nikam> i will request him to join next week.. or may be mail you abut it
13:51:37 <claudiub> well, he can drop me an email
13:51:41 <sagar_nikam> also if i remember right, we got the certification from MS on the OVS solution right ?
13:51:47 <claudiub> yep
13:53:04 <sagar_nikam> Then i think we may mostly go with it for our next release
13:53:19 <sagar_nikam> sonu can provide more info on it
13:54:02 <claudiub> here's the link, where you can see the certification: https://www.windowsservercatalog.com/item.aspx?idItem=18117a8c-c7bf-f20c-9185-3a53117b9875&bCatID=1638
13:54:22 <sagar_nikam> anything on cluster driver ? or it is down on priority
13:55:03 <claudiub> well, they didn't approve it for ocata
13:55:10 <claudiub> which is sad
13:55:40 <sagar_nikam> ok
13:55:56 <claudiub> so, it got a bit down in the priority list, as they won't merge it
13:56:10 <claudiub> but at least it's merged in compute hyperv
13:56:21 <sagar_nikam> ok fine...
13:56:27 <sagar_nikam> time almost over
13:56:32 <sagar_nikam> nothing much from my side
13:56:53 <claudiub> well, i guess we can end the meeting now :)
13:57:00 <sagar_nikam> thanks
13:57:07 <claudiub> i'll be waiting for an email :)
13:57:49 <claudiub> thanks for joining, see you next week!
