I want to create a basic round-robin layer 3 load balancer. The request would be coming from same tenant network and the backend servers would also be in the same network. For this the steps I think should be done are: create a neutron port (for the load balancer) and attach it to ovs on the neutron node and apply ip tables to load balance traffic coming to this port (using the nth patch of iptable).

Are the steps I am thinking correct? Also, to which chain should these rules be put?
