Having multiple instances of OpenStack components is great to have a scallable, high available OpenStack cloud. For some components of OpenStack i know for certain that i can run multiple instances in the same cloud, how about Neutron.

  • Can i have multiple Neutron instances in the same cloud?
  • Does having multiple instances impact network designs (GRE or VLAN)
  • Are there differences between Grizzly and Havana in this context?

Many thanks!

Addressing "Can i have multiple Neutron instances in the same cloud?"
See - High Availability using VRRP (L3HA) with Open vSwitch

Setup VRRP (two Network Nodes running keepalived ) doesn't require HA Controller Setup,which needs 3 boxes as well as configuration of Multi Master Synchronous Replication for MySQL Galera DB. Just one Neutron Server on Controller is enough.

Hi, Yes you can run multiple instance of neutron service on multiple node.

On multiple controller node install neutron-server,on multiple neutron node install l3-agent,dhcp-agent,openvswitch-plugin agent,metadata agent.

Enable below parameters in neutron.conf

allow_automatic_l3agent_failover = True //this one only control node configuration on the line, the remaining node does not need

l3_ha = True

max_l3_agents_per_router = 3

min_l3_agents_per_router = 2 //here based on the actual number of agent to write L3

dhcp_agents_per_network = 2 //here dhcp agent based on the actual number to write
