bulk-get-device-details

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/neutron/+spec/bulk-get-device-details

Introduce a rpc call to get device details for multiple devices instead of one by one.

Problem description

An agent needs to communicate with Neutron server in order to get some infomation about the devices (to handle devices added for example). Currently there’s an rpc call that can be used by the agent to get the details of a device, get_device_details . This call needs to be issued for each device. See neutron/agent/rpc.py .

The purpose of this blueprint is to add a call to get the details of multiple devices. This way instead of making N calls for N devices only one call will be made.

Proposed change

Introduce a rpc call to get device details for multiple devices instead of one by one.
