  • a10-neutronclient - Neutron CLI Client extensions. Adds "a10-*" commands to the neutron client.
  • a10-neutron-lbaas - Main A10 LBaaS driver repo. Middleware sitting between the openstack driver and our API client, mapping openstack constructs to A10's AxAPI.
  • acos-client - AxAPI client used by A10's OpenStack driver

Installation steps:

Step 1:

Make sure you have python-neutronclient installed. These extensions will need to be installed on any computer where the neutron CLI is used.

Step 2:

The latest supported version of a10-neutronclient is available via standard pypi repositories and the current development version is available on github.

Installation from pypi
sudo pip install a10-neutronclient
Installation from cloned git repository.

Download the driver from: https://github.com/a10networks/a10-neutronclient

sudo pip install git+https://github.com/a10networks/a10-neutronclient
git clone https://github.com/a10networks/a10-neutronclient
cd a10-neutronclient
sudo pip install -e .


As these extensions provide client functionality, the only configuration necessary is configuring Neutron to load the API extensions. This process is covered in the respositories for a10-neutron-lbaas and a10-openstack.

To verify successful installation, type the following command.

neutron --help

The Neutron CLI should present you with a list of commands. If the client extensions are properly installed, you will see methods prefixed with "a10-".
