18:01:39 <SumitNaiksatam> #topic New NSX policy mapping driver
18:02:08 <SumitNaiksatam> #link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/555230
18:02:26 <SumitNaiksatam> annakk: if this is at a stage that you want to discuss
18:02:32 <SumitNaiksatam> and perhaps we can review?
18:02:44 <annakk> not much to discuss here yet, we are resolving issues with the backend..
18:02:47 <annakk> not yet
18:02:53 <SumitNaiksatam> annakk: okay sure np
18:03:10 <SumitNaiksatam> #topic Open Discussion
18:03:10 <annakk> thanks for asking :)
18:03:13 <SumitNaiksatam> annakk: sure
18:03:26 <SumitNaiksatam> i wanted to point to a couple of patches:
18:03:52 <SumitNaiksatam> #link https://review.openstack.org/558923
18:04:23 <SumitNaiksatam> #link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/558897/
18:04:31 <SumitNaiksatam> i know this is not desirable
18:04:53 <SumitNaiksatam> but this cut down the number of tests being run from some 2100 to 1400
18:05:20 <SumitNaiksatam> given that we know that we are not actively changing any of the NFP code in those branches, i thought it might make sense to disable those tests
18:05:56 <SumitNaiksatam> this may not necessarily mean that the tests will run 33% faster in the gate
18:06:11 <SumitNaiksatam> but a lot of times we were hitting the 40 min timeout in the merge gate
18:06:45 <SumitNaiksatam> we dont see the timeout on the master
18:07:59 <SumitNaiksatam> rkukura: annakk: any other patches/topics that you may want to discuss?
18:08:08 <annakk> not from me
18:08:30 <rkukura> the long awaited AIM validation patch will be in review any day now - just doing cleanup on it
18:08:38 <SumitNaiksatam> rkukura: sure, thanks
18:09:00 <SumitNaiksatam> i dont think thomas is online
18:09:13 <SumitNaiksatam> annakk: we have been merging a bunch of APIC/AIM related patches
18:09:26 <SumitNaiksatam> if you feel the need to know/understand better, please let us know
18:09:44 <annakk> yes, I definately lack knowledge in these areas
18:09:53 <annakk> trying to review parts that I understand :)
18:09:56 <annakk> thanks
18:10:00 <SumitNaiksatam> most of the churn is related to support for SFC
18:10:19 <SumitNaiksatam> which currently only the AIM mechanism driver is supporting
18:10:38 <SumitNaiksatam> i dont have anything more
18:10:44 <rkukura> me either
18:10:53 <SumitNaiksatam> annakk: rkukura thanks for joining :-)
18:10:56 <annakk> maybe one quick q: sfc config comes as addition to gbp or is derived from gbp?
18:11:15 <SumitNaiksatam> annakk: actually the tie in to GBP is missing
18:11:22 <SumitNaiksatam> that is something we intend to do soon
18:11:32 <rkukura> Its Neutron-level, isn’t it?
18:11:35 <annakk> ok, I see, thx!
18:11:38 <rkukura> for now
18:11:53 <SumitNaiksatam> but the mechanism driver which is used in neutron (and along with GBP) is also used for this
18:12:03 <SumitNaiksatam> and hence you are seeing the commits here
18:12:10 <annakk> so the patches are to make these coexist
18:12:10 <SumitNaiksatam> rkukura: that’r right
18:12:20 <annakk> or just reuse same driver?
18:12:54 <SumitNaiksatam> annakk: so the APIC GBP policy-driver, APIC Neutron mechanism driver work together
18:13:12 <rkukura> along with the new APIC SFC driver
18:13:32 <annakk> got it, thx!
18:13:55 <SumitNaiksatam> alirght, thanks!
18:13:56 <SumitNaiksatam> bye
