Devops in Networking

  1. 1. DEVOPS IN NETWORKING Presenter Name: Sreenivas Makam Presented at: Devops Days India Presentation Date: Nov 4, 2016
  2. 2. About me • Senior Engineering Manager at Cisco Systems Data Center group • Author of “Mastering CoreOS” servers/mastering-coreos/ ) • Docker Captain( captains ) • Blog: • Code hacks: • Linkedin: • Twitter: @srmakam
  3. 3. What is Devops in Networking? Programmatic way to configure and monitor Network devices
  4. 4. Devops in Networking - Motivations • SDN technologies centered around splitting control, data and management plane.(eg: Cisco ACI, Vmware NSX, ODL) • Maturity of server automation tools. Tools like Ansible, Puppet, Chef are used for network automation. • Availability of Routers for modeling(eg: Cisco CML/VIRL, Arista vEoS) • Availability of Cloud routers(eg: Cisco CSR1000v, Brocade vRouter, Juniper’s vSRX) • White box switches (eg: Cumulus, Big Switch) exposing Linux OS. Traditional switch vendors are also exposing Linux OS in few of their products. • Opensource projects like Opendaylight, ONOS, OVS, Opencompute in the Networking space. • Container networking demanding simplicity • Cloud providers and big enterprises getting into networking space (eg: Amazon, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn)
  5. 5. Devops in Networking – Use cases Configuration: • Network wide L2/L3 configuration like vlans, routing protocols • Configuring services like firewall, load balancers • Declarative configuration rather than imperative Monitoring: • Check cable mismatches • Inventory checking • Performance monitoring • Check for error counters and thresholds • Analytics
  6. 6. Devops Networking Roadmap Past • Telnet, ssh access • Use CLI and parse raw text output. • SNMP is used for monitoring. Present • Use CLI or API with CLI underneath, get formatted json/xml output. • Use Python libraries and Ansible modules for abstraction. • REST access for CLI. (Eg) Cisco's NXAPI, Arista's Pyapi. • Examples of API libraries: Pycsco, Pyeapi, pyjunos, NAPALM Future • Model driven APIs • Use Yang models with REST/netconf/restconf/grpc transport • Models used for both configuration and monitoring • SDN Controllers using common YANG models.
  7. 7. Devops in Networking Ecosystem Devops in Networking Cisco, Juniper, Arista, Cloud Devices, etc Tools Ansible, Chef, Puppet, Postman Languages Shell Scripting, Python, Pyang library, Jinja2 templating Protocols ssh, SNMP, Netconf, REST, restconf, grpc Models Mib, YANG Data types xml, json, yaml Groups Openconfig, IETF, odl, onos
  8. 8. Python Library and Ansible example Read and Create vlans from Arista Device: # start by importing the library import pyeapi # create a node object by specifying the node to work with node = pyeapi.connect_to('veos01') run_conf = node.running_config print 'RUNNING CONFIG' print run_conf version_out = node.enable('show version') print 'VERSION output', version_out print 'My System MAC address is', version_out[0]['result']['systemMacAddress'] # Get vlan endpoint vlans = node.api('vlans') # Get and print all vlan vlan_out = vlans.getall() print 'current vlans', vlan_out # Create new vlan 1000 vlans.create(1000) # Get and print all vlan vlan_out = vlans.getall() print 'current vlans', vlan_out Get LLDP neighbors using Ansible from Cisco device: Get_neighbors.yml: --- - name: get neighbor data hosts: 3k-grp1 connection: local gather_facts: no tasks: - name: get neighbors nxos_get_neighbors: type=cdp host={{ inventory_hostname }} Execute playbook: $ ansible-playbook get-neighbors.yml PLAY [get neighbor data] ****************************************************** TASK: [get neighbors] ********************************************************* ok: [n3k1] ok: [n3k2] PLAY RECAP *********************************************************** ********* n3k1 : ok=2 changed=1 unreachable=0 failed=0 n3k2 : ok=2 changed=0 unreachable=0 failed=0
  9. 9. YANG model OSPF YANG model: module example-ospf { namespace ""; prefix ospf; import network-types { // Access another module's def'ns prefix nett; } container ospf { // Declare the top-level tag list area { // Declare a list of "area" nodes key name; // The key "name" identifies list members leaf name { type nett:area-id; } list interface { key name; leaf name { type nett:interface-name; } leaf priority { description "Designated router priority"; type uint8; // The type is a constraint on // valid values for "priority". } leaf metric { type uint16 { range 1..65535; } } leaf dead-interval { units seconds; type uint16 { range 1..65535; } } } } } } OSPF XML representation based on YANG model: <ospf xmlns=""> <area> <name></name> <interface> <name>ge-0/0/0.0</name> <!-- The priority for this interface --> <priority>30</priority> <metric>100</metric> <dead-interval>120</dead-interval> </interface> <interface> <name>ge-0/0/1.0</name> <metric>140</metric> </interface> </area> <area> <name></name> <interface> <name>ge-0/0/2.0</name> <metric>100</metric> </interface> <interface> <name>ge-0/0/3.0</name> <metric>140</metric> <dead-interval>120</dead-interval> </interface> </area> </ospf>
