I have havana on rhel 6.5, I have a "public" floating IP pool.

 nova floating-ip-pool-list 
| name   |
| public |

Where is this actually coming from? I have an external network, with the name "public" and an allocation pool, but I do not remember actually doing anyhting special here. Associating floating ips works. However I want to add pools. All the documentation I seem to find about adding pools refer to grizzly... How do I proceed?

     When you create external network   you create floating pool ( allocation pool of IP addresses)

    # neutron net-create public --router:external=True
    # neutron subnet-create public --name vlan --enable_dhcp False \
       --allocation_pool start=,end=  \
    # neutron floatingip-create public
