Hi

I have been following this question as I am keen on replacing the builtin virtual router functionality with an external solution using F5 Big-IP hardware.

Because I am not technically adding any functionality over and above what is already available with the virtual routers or floating IP's etc, the easiest way I see until Havana is released anyway is just rewriting the L3_agent functions to modify the F5 instead of iptables etc? I am assuming that is how it hangs together? F5 have a python module which makes it seem all relatively straightforward.

I would have to add some functionality to the agent to handle IP addressing for the hardware devices and using Route-Domain in place of namespaces, and remove the metadata-agent dependancy.

Thanks Allister
