Many folks find they way Neutron builds virtual networks a mystery. For those of us who have set up OpenStack and created a virtual machine that didn't get an IP or couldn't communicate out its network interface, this session will be for you.
In this session we will look at many of the tools available in Linux that can be used to troubleshoot problems in Neutron networking. We will then use the tools to troubleshoot a real world problem, communicating with a VM by tracing the packet flow through a Neutron-created network until we find a repair the problem. Come and be ready to learn the secrets of working on software-defined networks.
