Programming with OpenDataPlaneMatias Elo matias.elo@nokia.comTutorial/DemoVNF developers

This will be a tutorial and live demo on how to get started with OpenDataPlane programming. The presentation demonstrates how the same ODP application can be run on different HW platforms and underlying packet I/O types.

OpenDataPlane is ready for businessTapio Tallgren tapio.tallgren@nokia.comLectureVNF developers, operatorsOpenDataPlane project has reached a major milestone with the Monarch release. This talk presents the new features of ODP and shows new performance numbers. 
OpenFastPathulf.bragnell@enea.comLectureVNF developersThe exponential growth in data traffic puts ever-increasing demands on the packet processing elements in the network, resulting in a need for high performance IP packet handling. This drives the emergence of a new generation of hardware-accelerated platforms as well as the creation of user space applications and libraries. The drive towards scalable high-performance functions requires an open IP stack that is extendable and can enable great performance, ease of use and portability. OpenFastPath is an open source TCP/IP stack for Linux user space that runs on the OpenDataPlane. In the presentation Ulf Bragnell introduce OpenFastPath and show that it can provide up to 20x the performance of the native Linux Kernel for forwarding workloads.

Failure prediction based on Ceilometer and Spark  

Linghui Zeng

Hai Liu

Tutorial, demo, sharing experiencesDevelopers, operators, usersIn this talk, many challenging issues will be given, such as how to get useful data, why Ceilometer does not work well for data processing and so on. Our focus is on hardware failure prediction, because since now NFV has not been deployed extensively for users, which means what kinds of failure will happen and which metrics can be used to predict failure are the unknowable problems, however hardware failure has been extensively investigated and researched so many years. Hence, using the open hardware failure data is a good beginning for our big ambition. After trial and error ,the prediction accuracy is surprisingly high. Based on Apache Spark, which is a popular engine for large-scale data processing, the prediction is so fast and nearly real-time.

Functest: lessons learned and best practices for VNF test automation

Valentin Boucher

Morgan Richomme

Demo & live debate with audience with Q&ADevelopers, operators, users

A complex VNF test case was introduced in Brahmaputra based on an open source vIMS solution. Based on TOSCA descriptor file, it triggers the creation of several VMs including an orchestrator that deploys a complex VNF with various components and the associated test tools embed on containers. The vIMS experience test case could be used as a baseline to deal with VNF testing. This test case is also a pragmatic approach to outline the MANO role in the validation/testing phase.

Future extensions for C-Release (multi-site, VNF clustering, more complex test cases, integration with different orchestrators...) will also be presented to demonstrate that full automatic VNF deployment (including testing phase) can become a reality.

OPNFV MANO Requirement projectChris Donley Christopher.Donley@huawei.comPanel, Presentation  & live debate with audience with Q&AOpen source, developer, OPNFV

Since OPNFV board expended its scope to include NFV MANO last year, several upstream open source projects have been created to develop MANO solutions.  Each solution has demonstrated its unique value in specific area. Open-Orchestration (OPEN-O) project is one of such communities.

This project proposed seeks to develop requirements for OPEN-O MANO support in the OPNFV reference platform, with the plan to eventually include OPEN-O in OPNFV as a non-exclusive upstream MANO. In particular, this project will focus on interfaces and information/data models required for coordination among various components and OPNFV platform

Intro to fd.ioEd Warnicke eaw@cisco.comPresentation with audience Q&ADevelopers, Operators, is an open source project to provide an IO services framework for the next wave of network and storage software ideally suited to NFV use cases, including but not limited to developing feature rich high performance VNFs and providing the 'wiring' between VNFs. Architected as a collection of sub-projects, provides a modular, extensible user space IO services framework that supports rapid development of high-throughput, low-latency and resource-efficient IO services. The design of is hardware, kernel, and deployment (bare metal, VM, container) agnostic. will help advance the state of the art of network and storage infrastructure and will quickly become a “must have” technology in next-gen service provider and enterprise data center strategies as its benefits to areas like SDN and NFV are realized. In this session you will get an introduction to the technology under, it governance, and community structure.

Lorenzo Tomasini

Overview presentation, demonstration and discussions

Developers, Operators, VNF developers

Open Baton provides an open source implementation of the ETSI NFV MANO specification. It is based on MANO v1.1.1 information models, and in its latest release increased the number of functionalities which could be used for interoperating with it. In particular, this presentation will focus on providing technical details about those mechanisms (VNFM integration, VIM drivers, events engine) which enable the easy integration of external components. Additionally, will be presented some of the external components that have been developed recently (autoscaling, fault management, integration tests) which make Open Baton a very modular platform and allow fast prototyping of new advanced features also in the context of the OPNFV environment. A running demonstration of the platform will be provided to the audience.
