Re: automatically registering gorouters with OpenStack LB

Ronak Banka


I Agree that it will be helpful for Openstack deployments but having
something like this in CPI will only be helpful when native Openstack LBaaS
api are used .

For custom ELB deployments it will be good to create separate Bosh release
and make a elb-register job collocated along with router job which will add
or remove router from ELB using api or else way.

Hi Dies,

I agree that the registration at an external ELB would be very helpful to
have – just like it is done for AWS. We currently use the HAProxy, so I
guess this is a challenge which will hit us at a later point in time…

I’d love to see a PR for this! :)

Warm regards

I’m aware of bosh aws cpi’s elbs option to list ELBs with gorouters.

I’m looking for a similar option for OpenStack.

How do people ensure that when gorouters are e.g. rolled during an
upgrade, the new VMs are automatically registered with the load balancer?

We use a LB we developed ourselves, which is hooked in to OpenStack using
its pluggable LB infrastructure.
