Meeting Minutes [Re: SAI community meeting agenda - 8/1/2019]

  • SAI NAT Pipeline review closed
    • Rita has some questions which are being discussed offline
  • Github review comments have been handled
    • Use of object ID for zone ID – Zone ID will be used as a simple uint_8 for SAI API which is a translation managed by NAT application from the zone name space in schema as it is not rich enough to warrant an object.
  • Use of generic counter infra – This infra structure is not yet developed in SONiC and/or SAI. Given the timelines and resources there is no plan to implement this infra in the current release. NAT will use the legacy stats infra
    • CRM attributes in switch – New SNAT/DNAT/DOUBLE_NAT entry attribute in switch have been added to monitor the table full condition. This is again a legacy implementation as the new CRM object API infa is not implemented. – Guohan/Rita to help decide if NAT app should migrate to new CRM object API.
  • All the conflicts have been resolved in the PR.


PR937 is ready to be merged.
