asked 2015-03-28 12:38:41 -0500

I am a networking major MS student. I am very much interested and enthusiastic to work and research on network part of Openstack cloud.

But, So far I searched in internet, I did not found any good place from where I can start. More specific - 1. Overall view of neutron, to some extend : how neutron works? 2. How can I setup a working environment? 3. What are the research topics related to neutron so that I can play with it?

And so on. Can any specialist give me answer??

First off you should setup devstack on your local machine by following the directions here Then modify your devstack to install Neutron because it is not the default network, so extra steps are required to utilize it.

After it's all setup you can run through the Openstack admin guide to start seeing what normal administration of an Openstack environment looks like.
