For downloads, you're using probably DNAT or SNAT. For uploads, you're using floating IP's I'm guessing. Does uploads work for other VM's with a similar configuration? It's rare that this would occur so I would presume it's firewall related (either security group via OpenStack) or firewall on the VM itself.

Another question, are incoming connections timing out, is the security group allowing connections from everyone or a subset? i ask because I haven't seen the easy questions asked up front.

The select_all = 1 is supposed to mirror all the packets.

Referring to the documentation (http://openvswitch.org/support/dist-docs/ovs-vswitchd.conf.db.5.html),

��select_all: boolean

I believe, if the very first flow is dropping unicast packets, you might not be able to mirror them.

Maybe you can monitor the flow-tables on each OVS bridge while sending traffic and see which flows�� count increases. Something like,
watch �Cn 2 ��ovs-ofctl dump-flows <bridge name>��

Subject: Re: [Openstack] VM can receive traffic, but not send it

Here's was my first mirror setup:
ip link add name dummy3 type dummy
ip link set dev dummy3 up

ovs-vsctl add-port br-ex3 dummy3

ovs-vsctl -- set bridge br-ex3 mirrors=@m \
-- --id=@src get port pat-ex3-bss \
-- --id=@mir get port dummy3 \
-- --id=@m create mirror name=ovs_mirror3 select-dst-port=@src select-src-port=@src output-port=@mir select-all=true

And here's the one I did by copying your example:
ip link add name dummy3 type dummy
ip link set dev dummy3 up

ovs-vsctl add-port br-ex3 dummy3

ovs-vsctl -- set Bridge br-ex3 mirrors=@m  \
-- --id=@dummy3 get Port dummy3 \
-- --id=@pat-ex3-bss get Port pat-ex3-bss \
-- --id=@m create Mirror name=mirror0 \
select-dst-port=@pat-ex3-bss select-src-port=@pat-ex3-bss \
output-port=@dummy3 select_all=1

Both yield the same results. When I tcpdump the respective dummy interface attached to br-ex3, I only see broadcast traffic for the VM in question, I never see unicast traffic (case and point, if I ping the broadcast address on the VM, then traffic show's up in the tcpdump). I can do a tcpdump on the external interface and see the unicast traffic though, but I need to see where it's breaking in the OVS bridges.
Is there some trick to mirror unicast dataplane traffic?
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for everyone's kind help!
Steve: I will try and turn off the offload features and see if that helps. Thanks!
Neil: I will also check and make sure neither RPF nor TTL are posing any issues.

Kaustubh: Is there a reason the mirror approach only seems to work on some of the OVS bridges, but not others? if I follow your instructions, I can see traffic when I set up a mirror on some bridges, but not others... Do I need to put these OVS bridges into promiscuous mode before the mirror will work?
[Kaustubh] I don��t recall putting the bridge in promiscuous mode, but it has been a while since I had looked at this. How are you setting up the mirrors? You would need to mirror a specific port of the bridge, not the bridge itself.
Thanks!!

You can narrow down the point where the packets are being dropped by mirroring and tracing packets on OVS bridge ports. I use a script that does the following (as root):

ip link add name sniff0 type dummy
ip link set dev sniff0 up
ovs-vsctl add-port br1 sniff0
ovs-vsctl -- set Bridge br1 mirrors=@m  \
-- --id=@sniff0 get Port sniff0 \
-- --id=@eth0 get Port eth0 \
-- --id=@m create Mirror name=mirror0 \
select-dst-port=@eth0 select-src-port=@eth0 \
output-port=@sniff0 select_all=1

and to delete,
ovs-vsctl clear Bridge br1 mirrors
ovs-vsctl del-port br1 sniff0
ip link del dev sniff0

where eth0 is the point of packet capture and br1 is the bridge eth0 resides in. Then, you can run tcpdump on sniff0.
Create such mirror ports on
1) phy-br-ex on external OVS bridge
2) int-br-ex on integration bridge
3) qvo-xxx on integration bridge
Also capture packets on qvb-xxx on the linux bridge having the tap interface of the VM. Hopefully, this will provide us more clues.

Subject: Re: [Openstack] VM can receive traffic, but not send it

Wow! Thanks for answering both of my questions!
So, I did some things you suggested, including setting the MSS in iperf to something small (1000 bytes) and tested with no improvement. I then changed the VM running on Openstack to have an MTU of 1000 and retested with no improvement. I noticed that the node I was testing against was reporting back to the VM on Openstack that it had an MSS of 8960, so just for the heck of it, I changed the remote node's (server outside of Openstack) MTU also to 1000 bytes and retested with no improvement. (The effects of all of these tests were also validated by checking mss settings in the tcp header via tcpdump).
To simplify the equation, I ditched the iperf for the time being and just did a simple "telnet 'remote server' 8080" test from the remote server to the VM in Openstack, while capturing packets all along the way (4 different points along the network path). Every point saw the same packets, including the VM's tap interface as expected. I then reversed the test by initiating the tcp session on the VM in Openstack to the remote server while running the packet captures at those same points having set the remote server to respond with a TCP Reset. From VM to Remote server traffic looked correct with expected TCP SYN. The TCP Reset that the remote server responded with passed all 4 points of the network, including the external interface on the Compute node where the VM resides, but the TAP interface that connects to the VM NEVER sees the Reset. I can recreate this condition over and over.
So, thanks to your ideas Richard, I'm no longer convinced this is an MTU issue. What would prevent a TCP related response from being forwarded from the external interface to the intended VM? The security group we have applied to this VM is wide open, so I can't imagine that is the cause...
Here are 2 packet captures where I initiated a telnet to the remote server from the VM in Openstack. As said above, I set the remote server to respond with a reset. The top one is from the physical interface on the Compute node where the VM resides and the other, the tap interface to that VM:

You might consider taking a packet trace of the start of an upload to see what the TCP MSS (Maximum Segment Size) options look like and perhaps compare between the different configs.  Also, you could consider either using netperf and having it tweak the MSS to a smaller value (test-specific -G option if I recall correctly), or just try dropping the MTU of your VM before you try the upload.

Another way to use netperf to "probe" without tweaking MSS or MTU settings would be to use the TCP_RR test with increasing request/response sizes.  If there is indeed an MTU issue somewhere along the way, as you walk the request/response size up to the local MTU, you should see the test performance drop off a cliff if not go fully to zero.

Does the port for the VM have a security group rule permitting ICMP traffic in?  Offhand I wouldn't expect that to be different between the two network setups you've described because I'd not have expected the virtual router to pay attention to an arriving ICMP Destination Unreachable, Datagram Too Big message to have the routed version work, but it seemed a reasonable straw at which to grasp.

PS perhaps iperf has a similar option to set the TCP MSS, I've not looked.

Our info:

Openstack version: Mitaka (using OVS 2.5)
Firewall driver: Openvswitch

Anyone know why VM's that are directly on a Flat Provider Network (so the
VM would have a public IP directly assigned to it) can download data just
fine, but when we try and upload anything (iperf where the VM is the client
or something even like speedtest.net<http://speedtest.net> (upload portion)) the VM simply can't
get data out to the intended destination? Again, download works great,
upload doesn't.

If I take that VM and change it's interface to be a tenant network one that
has a Openstack HA virtual router, everything (upload and download) works
perfectly. The problem only seems to be apparent when the VM is directly on
the external network.

It seems like an MTU issue, but I don't see how... Here are the MTU's of
the part's at play:

VM: 1500
br-int (specific interface connecting to VM) - 9216
br-ex - (can't tell what that MTU is set to)

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Steve
