Stateful port groups

MidoNet features stateful port groups, which are groups of virtual ports (typically two) that are logically associated, usually to perform load balancing or for link redundancy.

For such ports MidoNet keeps state local to the two endpoints of a connection. In most cases, connections that traverse MidoNet do so between a single pair of ports. Typical cases include a router with two uplink BGP ports, or an L2GW with two ports connected to a physical L2 network. In both cases, the pair of ports becomes a set of ports because packets may return through different paths. Those port pairs will share state.

You configure stateful port groups in the MidoNet CLI, using the port-group command.
