F5 Environment Generator

The F5 environment generator is a Python utility. It creates a new service provider driver and adds it to the Neutron LBaaS configuration file (/etc/neutron/neutron_lbaas.conf).

You can use the F5 environment generator with Differentiated Service Environments and Capacity-based Scale out.


To create a new service environment, run the command below on your Neutron controller.

add_f5agent_environment <env_name>


The environment name must be eight (8) characters or less.

Next Steps

You can use your new service environment to run multiple f5-openstack-agent instances on the same host. See the Differentiated Service Environments documentation for more information.

See Capacity-Based Scale Out to learn about agent redundancy and scale out for differentiated service environments.
