Hi Guys, Now I am studying the implement of l3-agent and I have setup a network node with l3-agent successfully, where i can see the routes in 'ip netns exec qrouter-xxxx ip route'. I checked the code and found that the routes information is from the router['routes'], but when I use 'neutron router-show' to check the router details, i got the result below:

[root@test02 openstack(keystone_admin)]# neutron router-show 7e7c305d-6b3b-4ae9-9fe6-c2cf93584b9f

| admin_state_up        | True                                                                        |

| routes                |                                                                             |
| status                | ACTIVE                                                                      |

This routes are not the default routes.

This are

neutron=# select * from routerroutes ;
 destination | nexthop | router_id 
(0 rows)

so they would be extend the default routes in the code. You can set router routes with

neutron router-update --routerroutes
