Description Shanna Chan 2017-02-03 20:25:24 UTC
Document URL: 
It is not clear that in the OCP 3.4 documentation for F5 integration for OCP.
#1) https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/3.4/install_config/router/f5_router.html

Per my understand from BU:
Feature(s):  F5 Routing Enhancements 

Description: An on-ramp node is no longer needed to bridge the F5 to OpenShift. The F5 gets an SDN IP from the cluster CIDR, so OpenShift can communicate directly with the F5 with current information about nodes, hostsubnets, services, routes, endpoints, and VNIDs.

Section Number and Name: 

To deploy the F5 router:

Step #1. First, establish a tunnel using a ramp node, which allows for the routing of traffic to pods through the OpenShift Container Platform SDN.

Is step #1 referring to https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/3.4/install_config/routing_from_edge_lb.html#install-config-routing-from-edge-lb setup? if so, please specific.

Describe the issue: 
Why do we still need ramp node in Step #1?
If not, what exact step we need to do to set thing up?

Suggestions for improvement: 
Again in OCP 3.4, my understanding was that ramp node is not required which does not match the documentation. 
Please update the documentation accordingly if the F5 integration has changed.
