Simple Node Network Library

Overview

The Simple Node Network Library (libsnnet) implements a simple SDN controller. The library implements all the networking setup primitives required in Ciao.

libsnnet currently provides the following capabilities

  • Creation of multiple isolated tenant overlay L2 networks
  • Auto assignment of IP Addresses for VM's and containers
  • Support for Virtual Machine (QEMU)and Container workloads
    • Containers and VMs that belong to the same tenant are placed in the same L2 overlay network and connect to each other seamlessly
  • Ability to perform inbound and outbound NAT to/from the workloads
  • A built in docker Network and IPAM plugin to allow interworking between Docker logical networks and the ciao L2 overlay Network

It tries to rely on interfaces directly exposed by the kernel vs using user space tools to ensure maximum portability. The implementation maintains local state on leaf nodes vs relying on centralized state. It also uses local state to perform any network re-configuration in the event of a launcher crash or restart

Currently the library supports creation of bridges, GRE tunnels, VM and Container compatible interfaces (VNICs) on nodes. It also provides and the ability to attach tunnels and VNICs to bridges.

The implementation also provides the ability to interconnect these bridges across nodes creating L2 Overlay networks.

Roles

The library supports node specific networking initialization capabilities. It currently supports setup of Compute Nodes (CN), Network Nodes (NN) and Compute Node Concentrator Instances (CNCI)

Compute Node

A compute node typically runs VM and Container workloads. The library provides API's to perform network initialization as well as network interface creation and overlay network linking.

Network Node

The tenant overlay networks are linked together to Network Nodes. The Network Node switch and route traffic between the tenant bridges and subnets distributed across multiple Compute Nodes.

CNCI

Compute Node Concentrators or CNCIs are Virtual Machines running on Network Nodes which handle subsets of traffic belonging to a single tenant. A single network node can run multiple CNCI's limited by the Compute and Network needs of the CNCIs. All tenant level switching and routing for a given tenant is handled isolated from other tenants using the CNCI's. The CNCIs also implement tenant specific firewall and NAT rules. In the future they may be extended to perform traffic shaping.

Testing

The libsnnet library exposes API's that are used by the launcher and other components of ciao. However the library also includes a reasonably comprehensive unit test framework. The tests can be run as follows

sudo ip link add testdummy type dummy
sudo ip addr add 198.51.100.1/24 dev testdummy
export SNNET_ENV=198.51.100.0/24
export FWIFINT_ENV=testdummy

sudo ip link add extdummy type dummy
sudo ip addr add 203.0.113.1/24 dev extdummy
export FWIF_ENV=extdummy

sudo -E go test --tags travis -v --short

Note: Some of the API's require Docker 1.11+ to be installed on the test system. Please install Docker to ensure that all the unit tests pass.

These tests also help identify any regressions due to changes in the netlink library or the docker Network and IPAM plugin frameworks.
