SecurityGroupRule

Security group rule specifies the matching criteria for the ingress and/or egress traffic to/from the visited connection points. If an ingress traffic is accepted, the corresponding egress response shall be allowed, regardless of the security group rules on the egress direction. If an egress traffic is allowed, the corresponding ingress response shall be accepted, regardless of the security group rules on the ingress direction. The design of security group rule follows a permissive model where all security group rules applied to a CP are dealt with in an “OR” logic fashion, i.e. the traffic is allowed if it matches any security group rule applied to this CP.

Vdu

The Virtualisation Deployment Unit (VDU) is a construct supporting the description of the deployment and operational behavior of a VNFC. A VNFC instance created based on the VDU maps to a single instance of atomic deployable unit, represented by a single VM for hypervisor-based virtualisation, or represented by one or a set of OS containers for OS virtualisation . A VNFC will only be in one VNFDesc. If a vendor wants to use the VNFC in mupliple VNFDesc (their product) they can do so, but it will be ‘repeated’.

VnfPackageChangeInfo

A VnfPackageChangeInfo information element describes the processes and rules to be used for performing the resource related tasks while assisting the “change current VNF Package” to change a VNF instance to a different VNF Package (destination package). When creating a VNF package, the VNF vendor can include VnfPackageChangeInfo information elements in the package which allow the package to act as a source package or as a destination package for a modification in relation to another package, which has been created earlier or at the same time. To populate a VnfPackageChangeInfo information element and the underlying related information elements, knowledge of both the source package and the destination package is required.

VnfConfigurableProperties

This information element provides a means to define in the VNFD attributes that represent the configurable properties of a VNF. Configurable properties can be standardized as listed below (e.g. related to auto scaling, auto healing and interface configuration), or can be VNF-specific as defined by the VNF provider. For a VNF instance, the value of these properties can be queried and modified through the VNFM, using the Query VNF and Modify VNF Information operations. Modifying these values affects directly the configuration of an existing VNF instance. If a configurable property is defined in the VNFD, an initial value may be defined as well.

All additional VNF-specific attributes of VnfInfo that affect the lifecycle management of a VNF instance. For each VNF instance, these attributes are stored persistently by the VNFM and can be queried and modified through the VNFM. These attributes are intended to be consumed by the VNFM or by the lifecycle management scripts during the execution of VNF lifecycle management operations. Modifying these values has no direct effect on the VNF instance; however, modified values can be considered during subsequent VNF lifecycle management operations, which means that the modified values can indirectly affect the configuration of the VNF instance.

Additional VNF-specific attributes of VnfInfo that provide metadata describing the VNF instance and that are defined by the VNF provider. See note 2. For each VNF instance, these attributes are stored persistently by the VNFM and can be queried and modified through the VNFM. These attributes are intended to provide information to functional blocks external to the VNFM and will not be used by the VNFM or the VNF lifecycle management scripts when executing lifecycle management operations. Modifying these attributes has no effect on the VNF instance. It only affects the attribute values stored by the VNFM.

Enumerations

CollectionPeriod

Specifies the periodicity at which the producer will collect performance information. Note: at the end of each reportingPeriod, the producer will inform the consumer about availability of the performance data collected for each completed collection period during this reportingPeriod. While the exact definition of the types for collectionPeriod and reportingPeriod is left for further specification, it is recommended that the reportingPeriod be equal or a multiple of the collectionPeriod. In the latter case, the performance data for the collection periods within one reporting period would be reported together.
