      - Prime: Huifeng

              - Action: Huifeng to update
      - Wiki created with the tested procedure: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/StarlingX/Networking/TSN 
              - Matt did a quick scan, but will review in more detail later. Feature testing can still proceed
      - Elio assigned as the feature test prime. 
              - Anything outstanding before testing can start? What is the target date to start/finish?
              - Agreed that testing with start 9/9 and conclude by 9/20

- OVS-DPDK Containerization
      - Prime: Cheng Li
      - https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/story/2005496 
              - Action: Cheng to add tasks for the work items based on the spec
      - Spec merged. What are the next steps? Any idea of effort? Will this fit in stx.3.0?
      - Work Items
              - working on the openstack-helm patches  - Estimate: 2wks
                     - https://review.opendev.org/#/c/643284/ 
              - Reserve huge pages for OVS-DPDK and enable k8s hugepage feature - Estimate: 3wks
              - Generate dpdk related configurations for openstack deployment (starlingx/config) - Estimate: 2wks
      - Release team is looking for the code merge / feature test dates
              - This feature is tight for stx.3.0 MS-3. Will monitor progress over next few weeks and decide whether we target stx.4.0 or request exception for stx.3.0

- OVS collectd resource monitoring
      - Prime: Chenjie
      - https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/story/2002948   / https://bugs.launchpad.net/starlingx/+bug/1834512 
      - This was requested by Victor
      - Matt recommends that the focus be on the OVS port state monitoring / alarming which is described in the bug above. The remaining items of the story can be deferred.
              - Resolution of this issue is also dependent on the OVS-DPDK containerization, since access to the OVS state will be through the OVS client interface which will need access to the container socket.
              - May be able to start this work using the containerized OVS (non-accelerated) deployment as the OVS interface should be the same. Need to verify if OVS is running as a privileged container.
      - Forrest agreed that we will target the high priority bug related to this in stx.3.0

- New cni sriov plugin
      - https://bugs.launchpad.net/starlingx/+bug/1835020 
      - Steve will start working on this shortly (~wk of 9/9). I've changed the priority to Medium and tagged it for stx.3.0

- https://bugs.launchpad.net/starlingx/+bug/1836682  - Chenjie, steps have been documented, i210 NIC has been tested and result shows i210 NIC can't be used with the way binding a port with vnic_type direct_physical. As aligned with Matt, this limiation has been documented. Thus mark this bug as invalid. https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/StarlingX/Networking#Useful_Networking_Commands
