Openstack Octavia - How to Load balance Web Applications

I am trying to fire up Octavia Load balancer to balance user requests over 5 servers running a web application. I have been searching for a tutorial on this as the OpenStack API does not give a detailed guideline.

A brief background to my current OpenStack setup. We have OpenStack installed using juju and Octavia was installed also using juju, this link and this is the overlay bundle used After this installation, to bring Octavia up is my problem. I followed this tutorial, but it seems to be doing what the juju commands did, so I am at a loss to how I am supposed to start up an Octavia instance.

Can someone point me to a resource that explains this or guide me through it?

Thank you.
