Octavia Event Notifications

Octavia uses the oslo messaging notification system to send
notifications for certain events, such as
“octavia.loadbalancer.create.end” after the completion of a loadbalancer
create operation.

oslo messaging for event notifications

By default, the notifications driver in oslo_messaging is set to an
empty string; therefore, this option must be configured in order for
notifications to be sent. Valid options are defined in oslo.messaging
. The example provided below is the format produced by
the messagingv2 driver.

You may specify a custom list of topics on which to send
notifications. A topic is created for each notification level, with a
dot and the level appended to the value(s) specified in this list, e.g.:
notifications.info, octavia-notifications.info, etc..

Oslo messaging supports separate backends for RPC and notifications.
If different from the [DEFAULT]
transport_url configuration, you must specify the
transport_url in the
[oslo_messaging_notifications] section of your
octavia.conf configuration.

driver = messagingv2
topics = octavia-notifications,notifications
transport_url = transport://user:pass@host1:port/virtual_host

Event Types

Event types supported in Octavia are:




Example Notification

The payload for an oslo.message notification for Octavia loadbalancer
events is the complete loadbalancer dict in json format. The complete
contents of an oslo.message notification for a loadbalancer event in
Octavia follows the format of the following example:
