Abstract

The adoption of private clouds is an option for optimizing the use and organization of computing resources. Although the cloud benefits are been known for some time, there are still questions on how to plan the cloud infrastructure in order to avoid basic network performance issues. OpenStack is one of the most widely used open source solutions for building private Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds. OpenStack distributes network traffic across multiple interfaces and virtualized networks, which connect hosts to its cloud services, divided into the domains: control, public, or guest. The present work aims to characterize network traffic in the OpenStack control domain produced by changing the state of virtual machines (VMs). There are few works related to the network infrastructure scenario on private clouds, research in this area is generally focused on public domain or guest domain operations. In this sense, we performed a characterization in the OpenStack administrative network. In order to perform OpenStack network characterization, experimentation methods were used to identify operating services as well as to measure network traffic in the OpenStack control domain during a set of common operations in VMs.
