Need for an exhaustive flow description between components in an OSP cluster with Controllers, Compute and Ceph

Solution Verified - Updated -


Provide an exhaustive description of flows between OSP components (including Director) for an OSP 7 setup consisting of Controllers, Compute nodes and Ceph storage nodes. Provide the ports, networks, flows and information about service communication for the Undercloud and the Overcloud; not just between OpenStack nodes (controllers, computes, storage nodes) but also within these components:

  • which service initiates a connection to which service,
  • to which ports, from which ports,
  • through which networks.

The flow description should serve two goals:

  • The first one is to create an architecture document for security teams so that these teams can understand all flows, networks and ports used and how they interact together.
  • the second one is to understand the behavior of OpenStack and Director.
