17:09:04 <sridhar_ram> #topic Mitaka Status
17:09:22 <sridhar_ram> lets go around to see where we stand w.r.t different things in flight...
17:09:44 <sridhar_ram> bobh: lets start w/ your tosca-parser ..
17:10:05 <bobh> I think it's mostly finished except for some additional tests and sample templates
17:10:07 <sridhar_ram> bobh: can you please give an update ? any blockers ? anything pending ?
17:10:55 <bobh> sridhar_ram: I know Vish has looked at it and provided some good feedback - any other reviews would be helpful
17:11:16 <sridhar_ram> bobh: gongysh also reviewed I guess...
17:11:29 <brucet> bobh: Got a stupid question. Could find the Tosca Parser in the Tacker source tree
17:11:38 <sridhar_ram> bobh: yours in the next in my queue.. will review later today
17:11:46 <bobh> brucet: it's a library
17:12:04 <brucet> Is it the heat-translator??
17:12:05 <bobh> brucet: you can pip install it along with heat-translator
17:12:18 <bobh> brucet: it used to be one project but was split in two
17:12:41 <brucet> So do I look at the source for the Heat-Translator?
17:13:14 <bobh> brucet: if you like - I have several patchsets in there as well
17:13:25 <bobh> brucet: but the integration work is mostly in tacker
17:13:47 <brucet> Where do I find the integration code in RTacker?
17:14:13 <sridhar_ram> bobh: your work across all these three repos / projects to get this done is much appreciated !!
17:14:50 <bobh> brucet: #link https://review.openstack.org/#/c/278121/
17:14:57 <bobh> sridhar_ram: my pleasure :-)
17:15:10 <vishwanathj> +1 to sridhar_ram comments
17:15:23 <brucet> bobh: Thx
17:15:47 <sridhar_ram> bobh: when are expecting to push the "final" patchset from your side ?
17:16:04 <bobh> sridhar_ram: hoping end of this week
17:16:14 <bobh> sridhar_ram: Final is always a relative term
17:16:37 <sridhar_ram> bobh: true.. I was hoping to get this (and multisite) to merge by this Friday
17:16:55 <bobh> ok - can try for tomorrow
17:17:13 <bobh> sridhar_ram: it's never truly done but I'll push what I can
17:17:21 <sridhar_ram> bobh: that would help..
17:17:40 <sridhar_ram> we might have some room to "fixup" over next couple of weeks ..
17:18:09 <sridhar_ram> the reason for pushing hard is .. stable/mitaka will be pulled soon
17:18:27 <sridhar_ram> it is going to be a pain to justify big feature level patchset into stable branches...
17:18:56 <bobh> sridhar_ram: there is enough there now I think to get the base in, and we can patch as needed - but I agree it would be good to get as much in as possible
17:18:57 <sridhar_ram> whereas smaller tidy-ups can be always cherrypicked
17:19:12 <s3wong> sorry, late
17:19:34 <sridhar_ram> bobh: thanks.. ! will support you as much as possible from the review side..
17:19:40 <zigo> flaper87: o/
17:19:42 <bobh> sridhar_ram: thx
17:19:47 <sridhar_ram> s3wong: hi !
17:19:57 <sridhar_ram> moving on ...
17:20:17 <sridhar_ram> tbh: can you update on your patchsets ? any blockers ?
17:20:40 <sridhar_ram> tbh: glad to see most of the patchsets are posted now ?
17:21:05 <tbh> sridhar_ram, I have pushed patchsets for all resources, and for the main unit tests
17:21:24 <tbh> sridhar_ram, functional test cases are the pending one
17:22:29 <sridhar_ram> tbh: please plan separate patchsets for functional tests.. we would have room over next week to land them
17:22:52 <sridhar_ram> tbh: again, it will be good to wrap your patchsets by this week
17:22:58 <tbh> sridhar_ram, yes , maintaining seperate patchsets for everything
17:23:00 <sridhar_ram> I mean main patchsets
17:23:03 <sridhar_ram> *meant
17:23:22 <sridhar_ram> tbh: your's have a dependency on bobh's patchset ?
17:24:12 <tbh> not exactly sridhar_ram , but for unit tests, once we have basic test cases for tosca/utils.py
17:24:34 <sridhar_ram> tbh: okay..
17:24:39 <sridhar_ram> next..
17:24:42 <tbh> I will add test cases for the methods I have added in utils.py file
17:24:57 <sridhar_ram> tbh: sounds good..
17:25:17 <sridhar_ram> vishwanathj: can you update on EPA ?
17:26:03 <vishwanathj> I now have a patchset uploaded based on bobh and tbh patchset....
17:26:15 <vishwanathj> the pending task is creating unit tests
17:26:33 <sridhar_ram> vishwanathj: when can you wrap up unit tests ?
17:26:48 <vishwanathj> hoping to do by the end of this week
17:26:59 <vishwanathj> or sooner
17:27:21 <vishwanathj> mostly sooner
17:27:33 <sridhar_ram> vishwanathj: thanks... it seems you are last in the dependency chain on this tosca-parser related features
17:28:02 <vishwanathj> yes I am dependent on tbh patchset who in turn is dependent on bobh patchset
17:28:27 <sridhar_ram> vishwanathj: a major aspect of EPA involved documentation .. you should plan for that after your patchsets wrap up
17:28:35 <sridhar_ram> *involves
17:28:44 <vishwanathj> ok
17:28:47 <sridhar_ram> moving on..
17:29:03 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: multisite ... looking close ?
17:29:26 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: addressing the comments on server patchset, will have a new patchset with test/devstack changes end of day
17:30:15 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: I believe your patchsets have unit tests. How about functional tests ?
17:30:21 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: i will also push a separate patchset for stevedore changes and heat kilo support changes, right now it is integrated with server code
17:30:38 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: targeting by end of this week
17:31:00 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: +1 to split out into separate patchset.. including the func test ones
17:31:31 <sridhar_ram> so that the main patchsets can still sail through
17:31:34 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: sure, did you want me to extract the extension code as well to a separate patchset?
17:31:59 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: hmm.. nfvo extension part ?
17:32:07 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: yes
17:32:30 <sridhar_ram> I thought that is an integral part of your patchset and I'd recommend keeping it in place
17:32:42 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: ok
17:32:59 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: anything else ?
17:33:33 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: hopefully i can get it merged this week assuming there are no major comments on the feature
17:33:58 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: sounds good...
17:34:52 <sridhar_ram> general req - keep responding to review comments / with follow up patchset as quick as possible and
17:35:05 <sridhar_ram> .. a HUGE thanks to all the reviewers !
17:35:39 <sridhar_ram> especially gongysh ... for a fine toothcomb reviews !
17:35:56 * sridhar_ram not sure gongysh in the channel at this hr
17:36:45 <sridhar_ram> lets land as many patchsets as possible by this Friday and use next two weeks to "mop up" !
17:37:08 <sridhar_ram> #topic Mitaka Bugs & RFE
17:37:36 <sridhar_ram> I cleaned up launchpad bugs and RFE ...
17:38:03 <sridhar_ram> .. remove mitaka tag for those that look won't obviously make it to Mitaka..
17:38:13 <sridhar_ram> Bugs are in ..
17:38:15 <sridhar_ram> #link https://bugs.launchpad.net/tacker/+bugs/?field.tag=mitaka-bugs
17:38:23 <sridhar_ram> RFEs are in
17:38:29 <sridhar_ram> #link https://bugs.launchpad.net/tacker/+bugs/?field.tag=mitaka-rfe
17:39:04 <sridhar_ram> please take a moment to look at the list.. particularly the ones under your name
17:39:16 <sridhar_ram> you've two week's to land them to make it to Mitaka
17:39:23 <sridhar_ram> *weeks
17:40:14 <sridhar_ram> any particular bugs to discuss now ?
17:40:24 <sridhar_ram> ... or RFEs for that matter
17:41:18 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: https://bugs.launchpad.net/tacker/+bug/1522961 are we fixing this for Mitaka?
17:41:18 <openstack> Launchpad bug 1522961 in tacker "Display VNF monitoring status and health failure reason" [Medium,Confirmed] - Assigned to bharaththiruveedula (bharath-ves)
17:41:42 * sridhar_ram looking up
17:41:51 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: i believe we discussed last week that it would be bit involved to implement this
17:42:09 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: and may be difficult to wrap it for Mitaka
17:42:21 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: tbh: yep.. looks tight to me
17:42:29 <sridhar_ram> tbh: what do you think ?
17:43:08 <sridhar_ram> I'd suggest to move it to Newton
17:43:55 <tbh> sridhar_ram, yes and this one too https://bugs.launchpad.net/tacker/+bug/1524214
17:43:55 <openstack> Launchpad bug 1524214 in tacker "Capture and show VNF error reason in CLI and Horizon" [High,In progress] - Assigned to bharaththiruveedula (bharath-ves)
17:44:51 <sridhar_ram> tbh: this one seems a bit useful...
17:45:10 <sridhar_ram> tbh: lets keep it and see if we can make progress over next two weeks ?
17:45:12 <tbh> sridhar_ram,  first patch in the last cycle I guess, but due to the BPs, we didn't get the time,
17:45:47 <tbh> sridhar_ram, https://review.openstack.org/#/c/256314/
17:46:21 <sridhar_ram> lets keep if for now and reassess it next week once things clear a bit on the mitaka BPs
17:46:33 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: tbh: thanks for flagging them...
17:46:37 <tbh> sridhar_ram, sure
17:47:12 <sridhar_ram> Please add 'mitaka-bugs' tag if you see any issue that need to be fixed in mitaka
17:47:15 <sridhar_ram> moving on
17:47:32 <sridhar_ram> #topic Newton Series: Network Services Descriptor support
17:47:56 <sridhar_ram> each week we are rotating to discuss upcoming Newton features..
17:48:28 <sridhar_ram> we discussed VNF Scaling, NFV Catalog (by Sonata team) earlier
17:49:05 <sridhar_ram> dkushwaha: is interested in contributing toward's Tacker NSD support..
17:49:21 <sridhar_ram> he has prepared this to set the context ...
17:49:34 <sridhar_ram> #link https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1prnTLewkX3Dd2OYDSrEHgbq9RUSOj8ql8w3Sb3wcms8/edit
17:50:11 <sridhar_ram> dkushwaha: do you want to bring up anything ?
17:50:31 <sridhar_ram> team - any thoughts on this area ?
17:51:01 <dkushwaha> sridhar_ram, currently no. Just created this basic level understanding.
17:51:17 <dkushwaha> and looking for team support
17:51:36 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: noob question is this different to SFC?
17:52:20 <vishwanathj> dkushwaha what kind of team support are you looking for? I dont mind teaming up with you for investigation, POC, creating blue print and such
17:52:35 <sridhar_ram> sripriya: yes.. this is to instantiate a "collection of VNFs" .. it might or may not involve a service-chaining
17:52:52 <sripriya> sridhar_ram: ah ok.. thanks
17:53:05 <s3wong> I do like the fact that after bobh and I accidentally used the same presentation style from Google presentation back in mid-cycle, the whole Tacker team is now converging on the same style on presentations :-)
17:53:19 <Michael_Bredel> dkushwaha: I was working on a similar thing for Sonata - If you want I can help here as well (same company anyway :-))
17:53:33 <sridhar_ram> as indicated in slide #5 .. it has touch points into tosca parser .. bobh ^^
17:53:35 <bobh> s3wong: what do you mean accidentally?  :-)
17:53:46 <sripriya> s3wong: bobh: lol
17:53:53 <sridhar_ram> s3wong: :)
17:54:14 <s3wong> bobh: coincidentally :-)
17:54:22 <bobh> s3wong: :-)
17:54:43 <bobh> s3wong: great minds....
17:54:55 <sridhar_ram> Michael_Bredel: that would be cool.. if you can team up in this area. If has some overlaps with the NFV catalog work items presented by your team
17:54:58 <s3wong> bobh: :-)
17:55:08 <sridhar_ram> s/If has/It has/
17:55:16 <dkushwaha> vishwanathj, Michael_Bredel yes sure, I needs support regarding investigation.
17:56:18 <sridhar_ram> from my side.. I've few high level questions to ask (to all of us collectively).. is NSD going to be refer to VNFD using TOSCA "imports" as indicated in Slide #5
17:56:48 <sridhar_ram> or would NSD refer to VNFD name and invoke Tacker VNF APIs to instantiate them..
17:57:30 <sridhar_ram> dkushwaha: it would help to convert your slides into a Google word document and..
17:57:48 <sridhar_ram> dkushwaha: .. capture some architectural options first
17:58:30 <sridhar_ram> and let your co-conspirators - Michael_Bredel, vishwanathj jointly review / edit that for the next revision..
17:58:44 <brucet> dkushwaha: Doesn't Tosca NFV have a plan for including NSD in Tosca NFV templates??
17:58:45 <sridhar_ram> we can do one more round of discussion on that version
17:59:00 * sridhar_ram 2 min warning!
17:59:19 <bobh> brucet: yes - the VNFFG is part of that
17:59:26 <sridhar_ram> brucet: yes, tosca nfv does support NSD
17:59:43 <sridhar_ram> times up folks...
18:00:04 <sridhar_ram> dkushwaha: thanks for putting this together.. we have something to iterate!
18:00:18 <dkushwaha> brucet, yes, I think It is on the top of nfv
18:00:19 <sridhar_ram> #topic Open Discussion
18:00:36 <sridhar_ram> that's a wrap for this week..
18:00:40 <sridhar_ram> thanks everyone
