Aluminium SR1 deadline is tomorrow for managed project.The branch has been locked this week.
It will be unlocked when managed project will be ready which will allow us to migrate.
There were a couple of evolutions on dependencies, which have been considered but can’t be merged in the current state.
A few Jsr305 useless dependencies have been removed from poms.
SH optimization and technical debt : Guillaume proposed a way to handle the rpc pending status. Change Merged.
Bump devs to latest Al SR1 dev platform versions merged.
Without this change, the project was building up to karaf, and crashed because of a mismatch in controller dependencies versions (2.0.4).
Lighty.io build : Guillaume fixed some issues (api contract evolutions, addition on the Flexgrid….).
The call to PathComputationServiceImpl is not solved. A method passing parameters to the GNPY server I using BindingDOMCodec services which cannot easily be retrieved from Lighty.
Changing to AdaptorContext could be a workaround, but this approach still need to be consolidated.
Bump to Silicon :
Emmanuelle updated the Pom to Si as well Junit tests and code to be in line with Si following the introduction of the Maven Enforcer Pluggin.
The change also takes into account the latest modification made by Robert to solve MDSAL-600 bug (Problem when using two enum with the same name in the same module).
There will be a TSC election in the coming weeks.
Portmapping for release 7.1 : Bala has shared with us the way he wants to handle it.
Current PortMapping is importing common-types , switching-pool-types and port-types. A few parameters that were in the common types have been moved to device-type, or common-optical-channel-types.
When upgrading it to 7.1, two approaches can be followed.
First Approach : Create 2 separate yang files for the attributes that have changed in new versions.
Second approach: we would use the most recent model (7.1.0 ) for all older model as well.
This implies to make some deeper changes. We have a global agreement on the fact that the 2nd approach looks more appropriate.
The migration of network models to 7.1 has been initiated on Orange side by Emmanuelle.
Robert has recommended to use BOM in the POMs. Guillaume initiated some work to use BOM in tpce features.
Guillaume also removed some useless findbugs jsr305 dependencies in the common and in the Tapi modules poms.
Add OpenROADM 7.1.0 device and common modules : there is still a few comments to be addressed befor the change get merged.
SH handler optimizations and technical debt is ongoing, but Guillaume is expecting feedback on how to manage the pending status.
Lighty.io : Binding DOM codec service is needed by GNPY but not supported by lighty.io. This means some rework is needed on the GNPY API.
Bump to Silicon SR0 version is working. The changes is expected by committer(s) to be split so that other branches benefits from the improvement done
(and also to ease their maintenance).
Javier expect to push by tomorrow some part of his work.
Robert Varga presented his notes on ODL during the LFN events.
There will be some changes in the way notifications are handled in next releases (implementation of RFC8040)
Contribution on stable Al branch: We need to be clear on the branch where we want to have the contributions, ortherwhise we won’t be able to identify potential merge conflict.
Until further notice, we should post the contribution to master until the migration to Silicon.
This may however be handled differently for specific cases.
For technical debt, changes could be pushed to either Stable Al or the master branch.
For stable Al : we should push feature we already have : Flexgrid, T-API….
New features such as KAFKA shall be pushed on the master because it shall not be pushed to Aluminum.
Bala posted a new change on Gerrit that corrects warnings coming from Pyang analysis on yang files.
Bala would like to organize a meeting about portmapping 7.1 since he wants to discuss about some issues he encountered.
Because of the change in the way port/mc-capabilities are handled in OR 7.1 release (common model),
the PortMapping needs to be deeply modified to fit with the new models. From swagger UI the version of PortMapping does not appear anymore in api-doc.
Emmanuelle pushed some changes on stable/aluminium on technical debt.
She is waiting for netconf silicon migration to migrate master branch to silicon for TPCE
Gilles and Christophe worked this week on the consolidation of T-API topology export :
the topology will include the NEPS of the photonic layer that corresponds to Xponder ports that are connected to the ROADM infrastructure through fibers.
ther port (that cannot be commissioned) will not appear in this abstracted topology.
Tpce is officially in Aluminum, even if the official announcement still has not been sent to the mailing-lists.
Next week will be LFN networking technical event (old DDF) handled from the 14th to the 15th of October. It is a free event but a registration is needed.
7.1 Device model :
In the ModelMappingUtil it seems we have some duplications of the settings of serviceA/Zend where OUT, ODU and clli are affected 2 times. A change is dedicated to this.
CleanUp API yang changes (part1/2) look fine.
Augment 7.1 device common model : we have a licence issue with the OpenConfig Models (missing license). As we cannot convert the Apache L2 license into BSD license, the separate license file needs to be added.
Fix bug on transitional link solves a UUID creation issue : 2 devices could have the same UUID for the transitional link leading to the creation of only one link. The creation of UUID has been modified to address this issue.
Add OTN links in TAPI topology : OTU4 and ODU4 links are now provided in the OTN topology. Associated Junit tests were added.
ONES virtual event is ending. Video can be seen offline for people who registered.
CPQD (A Brasilian institute which promotes dirsruptive technology) seems interested and asked some questions on tranportPCE
LF Networking (equivalent of DDF for ODL) virtual event is following (13-15 of October) : they are still asking for late contributions.
Aluminum official announcement was still not done, as they are waiting for Release Note updates from some projects
Device Model 7.1 : now compiling. Bala is expecting a review of it. The change includes refactoring of transportPCE API
Func test for Flexgrid : Gilles made a review on it and the test suite has been merged.
Documentation : Guillaume added some elements on the T-API feature to the user guide. The release notes have been updated
Python functional test rationalization has been merged
Junit test : Move common DataStore has been merged last week. Guillaume is currently focusing on 92439 “Migrate AI and reactivate some Junit tests”.
Lighty.io 13 was released on the 18th of September. Guillaume started to look at it. GNPY dependencies were forgotten. PathComputationImpl needs BindingDomCodecServices which leads to the same issue as for the Junit tests (92349).
A couple of change waiting for review, from which “do not explicit serial Version UUID anymore”
Shweta has identified a number of bugs on the OTN code. Corresponding JIRA ticket have been created.
We will be part of the Aluminum distribution which shall be released today.
Release plans for next Silicon release have been asked to core projects.
In the case of TransportPCE it does not bring that much value since it would concerns mainly functional features, but no API modifications
Forgotten Mg Branch documentation update has been cherry-picked to master and stable/aluminium.
Aluminum Developer guide documentation has been merged, as well as the user guide which was modified regarding the installation of T-API feature
Do not explicit Serial Version UUID is ready for reviewal.
Guillaume has been working on rationalizing the Inventory
_Junit Tests : Guillaume splitted the change on Junit test
_Remove dead code from Junit test has been merged
_Fix test-common dependency scope in some pom files has been merged
_Fix a bug in PceUtils Junit can be merged. The proposed correction was made because initial Junit test was failing
_Migrate to Al and reactivate some Junit tests & Move common DatastoreContext and co-test-common lead to some issues
Guillaume fixed pylint configuration, modifying default regex rules and solving some false positive issues.
Use dict instead of elif in functional tests : some dictionaries have been introduced to simplify the code in some test suites
Managed project are almost ready for Aluminium . A message was send so that the PTL provide their inputs for the marketing message.
We should be ready by next week (25th of September) The documentation may need to be reworked to include Flexgrid
All Aluminium bump have been merged on top of Flexgrid.
Migrate Junit test is still not merged because……..
FlexGrid test suite : Gilles made some reviews and comments on the test suite, asking to include the renderer in the interface creation process (MC and NMC). Bala pushed some new tests to address these comment. The test passed the gate.
Rationalization of the inventory code : consolidating the Al migration, Guillaume made some changes on the Inventory.
Functional test rationalization was reviewed by Gilles. However, we will merge this patch after the migration to Al just to make sure there are no side effects.
Update device model to 7.1.0 : ODU 4 and OTU4 identity are imported from otn-common types. Some wrong revision are imported leading to mismatch. Still not clear why we observe this behaviour. We do not plan to include this in Al release.
Al SR0 is planned for next week on the 17th (Managed project). We have one week left to finish the migration.
ONS is on last week of September and will be a virtual event with limited fees.
Update of device model to 7.1. In the common type, there were some identity that have been added and some have been deprecated. In java classes generated by MD-SAL the dash is suppressed from deprecated identities making this redundant with the new one which leads to issues. This is probably associated with a bug in YangTools. Deprecated identities have been removed. Suggest to raise the issue in OpenROADM to remove deprecated identities from R8.0.
Flexgrid : Potmapping, flexgrid rendering and test suite changes are ready for a functional review.
Guillaume changed the docker image for ROADM D (that includes mc-capabilities)
Functional test cleanup is not completely ready, but a couple of change are ready for review. Pylint configuration have been modified. Simplification of the tests using dictionary with checks to be done instead of elif.
Aluminum migration :
In GNPYBindingDOMCodec services is used instead of direct implementation. GNPY yang models have been adapted to remove the key for the list of include/exclude constraint to solve a problem of ordering in the resulting Maps. The corresponding change is now ready for review.
The PCE has also been changed to solve a number of bugs associated with list and map handling.
Bala is asking for postman collection to help debugging the functional tests
TransportPCE will be part of the Na SR4 distribution
Flexgrid : the Mg SR2 dependencies were removed from Nexus, so that Guillaume upgraded the dependency to Mg SR3.
The code can now be rebased (as an intermediate step since at a later step it will need to be rebase on Al). Bala still has some issue passing the functional tests (all 1.2.1 port-mapping related test are failing. Also some of the Junit test are failing.)
Some of the input of Junit tests are hardcoded, so that if new mandatory parameters have been introduced, there must be fed to the Junit tests.
Migration to Aluminum ongoing work :
· GNPY feature to reactivate: the problem comes from the Yang Parser factory. The Yang Parser factory has to be reinjected.
· Migration of the functional tests that are now in failure following the API migration. see belo
· Binding context. Karaf tries to load the package mdsal.codec.impl but it is no more exported by mdsal (modification in poms).
· Guillaume is asking for some review on the PCE. He made some modifications to have it working but these modifications are not really on the same line that the initial proposal.
· Guillaume had to increase the Karaf Java dedicated memory size to have functional test passing.
Magnesium SR2 released. TPCE merge-release job passed tuesday. We should be part of Mg SR2
Alumium branch locked since 08/03.
Gilles did most of the premilmary work to bump to Alumium but it is not yet completed.
This was a huge change, Onoging work to split it.
Aluminium does not buit with jdk 11.0.4. The version used must be at least 11.0.6
Among other things, the API change impacts yangtools generated lists.
The type used is now Map instead of List.
Some bugs found on real equipment with Mg SR2. JIRA tickets to come.
Flex grid stll on work, especially functests that needed an update on honeynode (now merged)
Magnesium SR2 : there are still some issues with some of the Managed project artifacts.
The current estimated date to release Magnesium SR2 is of next week. Daniel de La Rosa will send a mail to Shweta as soon tpce can be released.
All changes related to Mg SR2 have been merged .
Orange started working on the migration towards Aluminum, which introduces an API disruption, and changes in the DataStore context. This will be the priority for Orange, coming back from vacation since the migration will imply a lot of work.
Some issues in developing the test suite for the flex-grid capability. This requires the device to advertise mc-capabilities for degree/SRG in the operational data. A new operational data file (oper-ROADMD.xml), where these capabilities were added has been created. However, mounting the device using the honeynode-simulator, only the operational data appear.
The kernel dependencies have been updated this week.
The gate is back and we don’t see anymore the karaf issue that were encountered last week.
We will need to check the documentation in case that dependencies are changed again
Once the managed project will freeze we shouldn’t see anymore the error stating that the Netconf artifacts are not available.
Otn-link update fix : addresses a bug associated with the update of the tp after a new link has been created.
Flexgrid portmapping change : AT&T proposed to introduce in the mapping list of the portmapping yang model a container mc-capabilities with slot-width and center-frequency.
The reason for this is that we could have hybrid node that support only Fix Grid on a degree and FlexGrid on others.
Bump project dependencies to Al : Gilles as started the migration towards Aluminium release.
The last release provides a lot of changes especially in the common modules (Serialization of object toward Json or xml, functions to parse yang models. So this migration will be a difficult exercice.
Missing modulation format for 2.2.1 Och interfaces needs to be reviewed.
For self-managed project Mg SR2, we have up the 20th of July to stage the project.
Branch lock is anticipated to the 13th of July which may lead to a branch lock that happens very early.
If we want to merge something, this needs to be prepared tomorrow, because of next bank holidays in France.
AT&T would like to check the code on equipment. If a bug is detected and a patch is proposed to solve it, this could be submitted to a super-committer.
Functional tests for SH-Renderer new OTN API change has been merged.
In “Update docker command” change, Emmanuelle proposes a new way to start the GNPy docker.
Na SR4 distribution has been approved. No detailed schedule announced.
The team from Nokia has joined the meeting.
SH-Renderer API code contribution Step1 and Step2 have been merged. Renderer is now capable to differentiate WDM and OTN services. SAPI and DAPI setting have been included (respecting the 16 characters limit). Functional test have been added. Functional tests related to deletion of the service are missing because it implies the PCE has been modified.
Kafka and MongoDB are probably not supported in ODL (dependencies not present in ODL). It will probably need to be put in a separate place.
This is the DDF / virtual event week .
TransportPCE was presented. Some questions have been raised about GNPY. A session was also handled by Robert Varga and Guillaume about LFN process.
“SH-Renderer API code to handle OTN Step1 & 2”:
Apart from trib-port and trib-slot assignment all comments from Olivier were addressed.
ODU4/OTU4 renderer input create has been updated.
Some modification were made in the OLM to support ODU4 implementation where only one network tp is used.
The hashcode method has been adapted to fit with the 16
bytes characters imposed by using Base64 + FNV1-64 algorithm (instead of FNV1-128).
Bala also added some test cases (OTU/ODU/LO ODU services) for SH-Renderer OTN API. Bala experienced some issues with the test when deleting the service.
Gilles and Christophe experienced the same issues and solved the problem working on their side on end to end OTN services creation-deletion.
They propose to merge these changes so that they can continue working on end to end OTN services rebasing their code on the latest Patchset.
One shall note that only SPDRAv1.xml configuration shall be used when we check the creation of interfaces by the renderer, because this is the only one that does not pre-include interfaces.
Susmitha has been working on flexgrid support. She added FlexGridImpl class and made some changes in the portmapping and in tpce- common-types yang
modules. Running it, some failures appear with the OLM in the functional tests
Emmanuelle upgraded the simulators versions so that they include notifications and fix the MAC OS support problems.
Many improvements on Functional tests merged. Better process and strat-up sequence management.
Alignment of 1.2.1 and 2.2.1 tests: Guillaume has modified the functional test so that they all use the same approach. A dictionary is used to define all simulators to be launched and the port they will use.
ONES virtual event planned next week.
Orange proposed 1 session for TPCE, 1 for BGPCEP and one about LFN infra migrations and ODL scheules synchronization.
Ongoing talks to propose a Na SR4 release update
Shweta and Susmitha started to prepare the Flex Grid migration.
Power control for flexgrid submitted by Shweta has been merged.
Some bug fixes on the OTN nodes
There won’t be any ONES EU event. It will be replaced by the virtual ONES NA event in September.
LFN is still in the process of releasing Na SR3. We are ready to be part of it
Dependencies have been bumped to Mg SR2 on the master branch.
SH-Renderer-API: Bala will start looking to Olivier’s comments beginning next week. Guillaume proposes to rebase this change on the current master.
Artifacts for Na SR3 have been published.
Orange has proposed a discussion on tpce Mg Release at Next DDF Forum (virtual Event)
Ahmed completed some functional test to check the behavior of the PCE in different conditions related to the presence or absence of OMS attributes.
The test notably checks that the PCE does not propose path relying on some links that do not contains OMS attributes.
NETCONF-666 bug has been corrected and merged on Mg. It may solve the issue we observed with NETCONF notifications generated by devices in case of multiple Netconf sessions.
We are officially part of Mg SR1. It will be announce today or tomorrow.
Deadline for managed project for Na SR3 is tomorrow. We are ready for integration in this release, but Netconf artifact is still missing, so that we cannot stage the release.
Wiki URL has again changed from wiki.lfn… to wiki.opendaylight.org, which brings a lot of issues. Guillaume sent a mail to highlight this.
Ongoing discussion on the virtual ONS summit.
The stable Mg branch is locked. So there will not be any additional change backported to it.
OLE made some contributions on the PCE to adapt the code in the following of the Junit test they made.
Emmanuelle as developed a GNPY stub to help OLE in developing/running the Junit tests for the PCE.
Bala made a change (WIP) on the service Handler. He added otn-service-path method in SH model-mapping and updated renderer to differentiate WDM and OTN service.
The service-path was also updated with connection type.
Sprint planning is on next Tuesday. Please make sure all user stories of interest for you in the backlog!
ODL TSC is working for Mg SR1 releasing, but the branch is clearly not ready to stage the release.
The old Wiki has been migrated to the new Confluence Wiki. All the information is there. Module description and Requirements are at the same level. It will be updated later on.
The stable Mg branch is locked. So there will not be any additional change backported to it.
Orange will close the sprint on Jira. After everybody has made some refinement on its user stories (acceptance criteria, detailed description….) we will start building the backlog of the next sprint so that we can set a new Sprint-planning meeting. Proposed date for next sprint planning is the 2nd of June. The period for next sprint will be from the 1st of June to the 25th of June.
No news about the release to come. It seems that the community is pretty late.
Additional Junit test have been pushed by OLE, and merged.
SAPI/DAPI patch has been merged.
Bala raise the fact Building Service Handler, SLF 4J SpotBugs are coming up making more difficult the analysis and the set up.
Shweta proposed to give help on reviewing the 2 changes pushed by Jonas.
First contribution is about lldp neighbours discovery, changing some loops behavior.
In the 2nd, PCE optical node validation, Jonas corrects the PCE behavior so that if PP ports on an end SRG are already used path, computation fails.
The presentation made in the TWS meeting was appreciated and a question/answer session will be organized next Monday.
Next LFN events : No news from next Developper forum, the ONS America has been postponed to September but it is not canceled
Mg SR1 : we can’t stage the project right now, because managed project are not ready. It shall be possible next Monday. Hopefully, we shall have one week then to stage transportPCE
A new version of checkstyle does not allow separation in the import. Stable Magnesium and Master are now pointing to Mg SR1.
Upgrade to Service Model 6.1 : propose to put it on hold and wait until the issue 678 of OpenROADM is solved (bug related on the introduction of mandatory leaves making the subrate-eth-sla container mandatory whereas it is associated to a when statement, which leads to incorrect behavior in ODL). Then rather than integrating R6.1.1 which shall solve the issue, we could directly jump to R7.1 which will also solve this but add nice features to handle MDONS use case (such as the possibility to handle several notifications urls to different ONAP subcomponents.
The mailing-lists have been migrated, this includes transportPCE dev list.
The presentation about transport PCE for the Tech work stream (public session) will be on the 27th.
It has been asked by the TSC, and shall be technical. A good starting point could be to reuse the presentation made top OpenROADM user Group.
The gate was broken two days ago, this means the project shall be rebuilt if no Maven cache repo is used.
The LFN has decided to migrate the mailing list. We shall receive of invitation to subscribe to the new mailing list.
For Aluminium we have to think about the old Controller API removal.
This may have an impact, on the code, but most the work was already done on the databroker migration from September for Sodium.
The Wiki shall be migrated before beginning of May.
“Update config files and tests” has been merged. It improves the testing environment for GNPY, modifying the config files.
“Improve HoneyNode Docker script” has been merged. The script to initiate the simulators has been changed.
“update lighty.io build script for Mg SR0 support”: Balla made some modifications updating dependencies and was able to build the lighty locally.
Narayan has started working on the support of 2.2.1 Devices in the inventory. He has an issue with the database management.
“Upgrade OpenROADM service model to 6.1” : Susmitha has removed old 5.1 service Model.
She suggests to keep old models in common, because a lot of modules are still using them.
A release note and a marketing announcement have been prepared. All self-managed projects (including transportPCE) will be in the official distribution.
GUI source code has been published on Orange public Gitlab, the docs have not been published but exist in Microsoft Word docx format, they must be converted in MarkDown.
“HoneyNode and tox scripts BSD compatible” has been merged : the idea was to rewrite tox scripts and the launcher so that they are BSD compatible and can be used on Mac.
Several change have been made to reduce the technical debt and fix different spotbug issues (Separate changes for PCE, Common & Network and Renderer modules).
This changes also allows solving some of the SONAR issues.
There will be a vote today for Magnesium Release, but they are still experiencing issues with some of the projects.
Guillaume did not manage to stage the release because some dependencies are still missing.
Docker refactoring for Java 11 : Honeynode has been upgraded to Java11. The Docker that launch the simulators needed also to be upgraded.
In the docker file some changes have been made to introduce a hierarchy. Previously as all simulators and configurations were built directly on the image, the dockers used a lot of memory.
Using the Multi-stage feature of Docker, the size of the image went down from 800 to 240 Mbytes. Also only one image is now used for all configurations. A script starts several container with their own configuration file. An option has been added to check the health of the simulators by using the REST API.
“Update configuration files and tests” change is focusing on correcting the clfi and addresses of the nodes, and managing OMS attributes and other deprecated attributes that were moved to the common model.
Magnesium release is postponed. A bug in karaf prevent some of the modules to start correctly.
Trying to stage the release, it seems that some NETCONF dependencies are not available so that we can’t stage it.
Ongoing changes on the master branch:
A change has been provided by Anil related to the documentations (migration to Python 3).
Some Changes can be pushed on Master branch. If a change is OK we can then cherry pick it and propose it for Magnesium.
Bala has been working on checkstyle issues for SAPI/DAPI code and will push it this afternoon.
We are working with Fossology to check the licenses associated with the GUI code. After we have checked licenses are compatible, the GUI code will be pushed on Gitlab.
Magnesium will probably be postponed but we are ready to integrate the release.
We have received some guidelines about the migration of the Wiki (Casey Cain).
toJava functions introduced by the Magnesium migration do not support null.
The code of GNPy has been changed accordingly (addressing the case where PCE sending a request to GNPy to calculate a path, without sating the wavelength).
The documentations have been reviewed to include OTN support, GNPY, and T-API support (for the export of the topology).
Some example have been provided to explain how to configure OTN devices using intermediate (East/west) APIs, waiting for a full end to end support (planned in later releases of Magnesium).
We manage to release tpce for Na SR2.
Magnesium code freeze should have been on Monday the 10th of February. Bus as BGPCEP project is not ready, Mg shall be stable only on next Monday.
Guillaume has bumped the dependency and also migrated tox to use controller with JDK 11 and sims with JDK 8(not merged at that time).
Currently the project is building with JDK 8 and 11 with Sodium. JDK 11 is mandatory for Mg.
Maven verified job needs to be migrated to JDK 11 (currently building on JK8). So this should not affect the current code.
A patch has been proposed to releng/builder to migrate. It has been merged during the meeting. So the gate is now using JDK11.
When AT&T is pushing code, the building process fails. LFN doc tools needs Python 3.6 . ATT changes need to be rebased on the current master to use the new version of tox.ini
PCE consolidation (according to Jonas comment, and OSNR calculation improvement) has been merged.
The PCE OTN initial code has been reworked through “Adapt PCE code for OTN services” commit which has been merged.
AT&T has started working on service and network models 6.1 integration. There are some issues , probably coming from common models.
Bala has also started working on including SAPI and DAPI field on interface Builders (OTU4 creation) in the renderer but functional test fails (at the Topology level)
AT&T identified an issue with ODL parsing device responses to Netconf config edit. They need to investigate a bit further to understand whether the issue comes from ODL (NETCONF) or from the equipment.
The next DDF won’t be collocated with the ONS. It will be associated with the ONAP event in Seoul.
Magnesium code freeze for Managed project is beginning next week. This means that the API won’t change.
Guillaume fixed the problems with tox profiles and the gate works again.
