Neutron LBaaS V2 Specification Support

MidoNet also supports the Neutron LBaaS V2 specification (as documented in https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Neutron/LBaaS/API_2.0). To set up and use load balancers, users can set up and manipulate load balancers, pools, members, health monitors, etc. via the standard Neutron commands as outlined in http://docs.openstack.org/mitaka/networking-guide/config-lbaas.html.

MidoNet load balancer limitations

Although MidoNet supports the Neutron LBaaS V2 API, not all Neutron LBaaS features are supported in MidoNet:

  • L7 load balancing is not supported, which means several parameters for Layer 7 options, such as sni-container-refs and default-tls-container-ref, are not supported. Also, the protocol field for listeners, pools, and health monitor type can only be set as TCP.
  • Only round robin is supported for the load balancer method.
  • Only Source IP session persistence is supported.
