Uh, throw out your Echo? If that's not the advice being given, it's the advice that _should_ be given...

(And by throw out, I mean dispose of properly, but that doesn't have the same ring to it.)

Anyone here with Openstack operations experience? We currently see traffic loss in an RHEL #Openstack installation with openvswitch in VRRP mode after a failback between the virtual routers (initial failover on a node reboot works fine). When the node comes back up and takes back the router VIPs, it doesn't seem to send gratuitous ARPs, and uplink switches keep stale MAC address entries pointing to the previous host's ports, so there's blackholing. Anyone seen something like this? Config error?

#Mastodon v2.6.3:

Another backport. There is an important performance fix that was missing in 2.6.2 and some smaller fixes.
