I am trying to come up to speed on OpenStack, working on a project involving custom PCIe devices. Part of what I'm trying to do seem to correspond to the enhanced platform awareness feature, described here: (

I am looking for ways to automatically detect PCIe device, and orchestrate instantiations based on PCIe devices present in a plant (my application running faster and requiring less resources when running with the custom PCIe board, and supporting hot swappable hardware).

When looking at this enhanced platform awareness blueprint, how do I tell if it got implemented (it seems to date from 2014)? Was it renamed to something else, or superseded by another OpenStack feature? Any documentation, discussion, developing members list anywhere?

-most of that work resulted in PCI pass-through (/SR-IOV) features

-Perhaps you should take look at Resource Providers work in Newton/Ocata/beyond.

Thanks a lot for the pointer, I'll be sure to read on that.
