Fixed In Version: openvswitch-2.9.0-1.el7fdp
Doc Type: Rebase: Bug Fixes and Enhancements
Doc Text:
_openvswitch_ rebased to version 2.9.0 and DPDK to 17.11 The _openvswitch_ packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.9.0 and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) to 17.11, which provide a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. Notable changes include: * Support for running the `ovs-vswitchd` and `ovsdb-server` commands as non-root users by default. * Open Virtual Network (OVN) features have been added for Layer 3 gateway High Availability (L3 gateway HA) and routing. * Support for Network Service Header (NSH) with VXLAN Generic Protocol Extension (VXLAN-GPE) for Open vSwitch (OVS) and OVS-DPDK. * The Exact-Match Cache (EMC) removed and OVS can scale to millions of flows. * The *openvswitch* service updated. * Support for the transient ports. * Support for Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) negotiation for Jumbo frames. * Enabled the `vIOMMU` function in the DPDK guest and OVS-DPDK in the host.

Description Anita Tragler 2017-07-26 16:49:34 UTC
Description of problem:
Must update Fast datpath content set (OVS, OVS-DPDK) to OVS 2.9 + DPKD 17.11 on FD production channel to provide stable datapath content for RHEL 7.5 release. 
Requires Platform/Virt/Perf QE CI, regression and performance benchmarking for affected datapath features when new bugs or fixes are pushed
FD production channel OVS 2.9 will be consumed by RHV 4.2, OCP 3.x, RHOSP 13 

Must have features
- OVN features for HA L3 gateway and routing + others
- NSH with VXLAN-gpe for OVS and OVS-DPDK
- Exact Match Cache removal and optmizations to scale to millions of flows
- OVS in-service hot update, measure update or upgrade time; update time <1s
- MTU negotiation for Jumbo frames, workloads with different MTU requirements
- DPDK guest with vIOMMU and OVS-DPDK in host
Should support
- OVS-DPDK inservice update with dpdk ports 
- SHould support OVS and OVS-DPDK for BGP VPNs with MPLS over GRE and MPLS over UDP encapsulation, routes learned via Quagga and installed in OVS

The openvwitch component is delivered through the fast datapath channel, it is not documented in release notes.
