Abstract

OpenStack is a popular and versatile solution for creating IaaS clouds. OpenStack has several private cloud issues implementations regarding its network infrastructure with which organizations are not always familiar. In this context, this work characterizes the administrative network traffic of OpenStack clouds. Administrative traffic has a separate network, which can affect the performance of the cloud as a whole. We set up an induced lifecycle for virtual machines (VMs) and measured network traffic and Application Programming Interface (API) calls for each task with different operating system (OS) images. Moreover, we also provide an analysis and characterization of the measured network traffic in the management security domain of OpenStack, as well as verify the possibility of using a linear regression model for predicting the traffic volume produced for each task.
