Build Status
====================
.. image:: https://travis-ci.org/rackerlabs/quark.svg?branch=master
:target: https://travis-ci.org/rackerlabs/quark

Caution
=======
Quark is not currently designed to work with `DevStack <http://devstack.org>`_ (but it can with the instructions below). We mention this because these instructions can become invalid if and when changes are pushed to DevStack. Please also not that once Quark+Neutron+DevStack+Tempest are wired up, the Tempest tests are failing. Please watch `this Quark Github Issue <https://github.com/rackerlabs/quark/issues/50>`_ for updates on this.

Dependencies
===================
`aiclib <https://github.com/rackerlabs/aiclib>`_

Database Migrations
===================
`Here <https://github.com/rackerlabs/quark/blob/master/quark/db/migration/alembic/README.rst>`_

Install with DevStack and Neutron
=================================

- Ensure you have a user already with sudo rights. If you need one, do this as root::

/usr/sbin/adduser stack
echo "stack ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL" >> /etc/sudoers

- Switch to user with sudo rights::

sudo su - stack # or whatever user you already have (instead of stack)

- Clone devstack::

git clone https://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack

- Go into devstack folder::

cd devstack

- Create the local.conf configuration file that DevStack needs (localrc is inside it now) with Neutron as an anabled service (NOTE: This notation is explained `here <http://devstack.org/configuration.html>`_)::

[[local|localrc]]
DATABASE_PASSWORD=password
ADMIN_PASSWORD=password
SERVICE_PASSWORD=password
SERVICE_TOKEN=password
RABBIT_PASSWORD=password
# Enable Logging
LOGFILE=/opt/stack/logs/stack.sh.log
VERBOSE=True
LOG_COLOR=True
SCREEN_LOGDIR=/opt/stack/logs
# Pre-requisite
ENABLED_SERVICES=rabbit,mysql,key
# Horizon (always use the trunk)
ENABLED_SERVICES+=,horizon
HORIZON_REPO=https://github.com/openstack/horizon
HORIZON_BRANCH=master
# Nova
ENABLED_SERVICES+=,n-api,n-crt,n-obj,n-cpu,n-cond,n-sch
IMAGE_URLS+=",https://launchpad.net/cirros/trunk/0.3.0/+download/cirros-0.3.0-x86_64-disk.img"
# Glance
ENABLED_SERVICES+=,g-api,g-reg
# Neutron
ENABLED_SERVICES+=,q-api,q-svc,q-agt,q-dhcp,q-l3,q-lbaas,q-meta,neutron
# Cinder
ENABLED_SERVICES+=,cinder,c-api,c-vol,c-sch
# Tempest
ENABLED_SERVICES+=,tempest

- Remove Python's six packge::

sudo rm -f /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/six.py /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/six.pyc
# Old version of six package in /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ crashes
# quark server

- Install Devstack::

./stack.sh

- Install aiclib::

sudo pip install aiclib
# the reason for sudo here is if you don't you'll get permission denied when it tries to install to /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist/packages

- Install quark::

cd /opt/stack #the folder where devstack installed all the services
git clone https://github.com/rackerlabs/quark
cd quark
sudo python setup.py develop
# the reason for sudo here is if you don't you'll get permission denied when it tries to install to /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist/packages

- Validate quark installed::

pip freeze | grep quark
# should see something like:
# -e git+http://github.com/rackerlabs/quark@ff5b05943b44a44712b9fc352065a414bb2a6bf9#egg=quark-master

- Now edit the /etc/neutron/neutron.conf file to setup Quark as the core plugin::

vim /etc/neutron/neutron.conf
# Search for line containing 'core_plugin = ' and replace it with
# 'core_plugin = quark.plugin.Plugin'
#
# Search for line containing 'service_plugins = ' and remove
# 'neutron.services.l3_router.l3_router_plugin.L3RouterPlugin,' from
# service plugins list

- Stop Neutron by going into the screen session and going to the q-svc window and pressing ctrl-C::

screen -r # or go into devstack clone and then type ./rejoin-stack.sh
# press ctrl+6 to go to q-svc window
ctrl+C

- Go back into screen and restart neutron (q-svc window)::

screen -r stack # or go into folder where you cloned devstack then type ./rejoin-stack.sh
# if screen command returns 'Cannot open your terminal /dev/pts/0' execute 'sudo chmod o+rwx /dev/pts/0'
# go to q-svc window (ctrl+a, 7 currently does it)
# previous command that devstack used to start neutron should be in history, press up arrow key to see it

- You shouldn't receive any errors. To validate Quark has started up, you can scroll up in q-svc screen window (ctrl+a, esc, page-up) and look for the following lines::

DEBUG neutron.service [-] core_plugin = quark.plugin.Plugin
...
DEBUG neutron.service [-] QUARK.default_ipam_strategy=ANY
DEBUG neutron.service [-] QUARK.default_net_strategy={}
DEBUG neutron.service [-] QUARK.default_network_type=BASE
DEBUG neutron.service [-] QUARK.ipam_driver=quark.ipam.QuarkIpam
DEBUG neutron.service [-] QUARK.ipam_reuse_after=7200
DEBUG neutron.service [-] QUARK.net_driver=quark.drivers.base.BaseDriver
DEBUG neutron.service [-] QUARK.strategy_driver=quark.network_strategy.JSONStrategy

GOTCHAS
=======
- you won't be able to create ports until you've added at least one mac_address_range (use `this <https://gist.github.com/jmeridth/8561910>`_ script to do it, changing host IP and admin password)
