Traceroute your way to drinks!
ICMP my drink
What is this?
I keep forgetting drinks ingredients. I don’t drink that often so, when I do, I don’t want to scramble around for ingredients and how much of everything.
Working in the Network world, we use a lot of MTR/Traceroute in order to find our way through networks. It struck me that I could leverage the same mechanism to trace my way through drinks!
How to fix this?
I was working on a quick POC of Cumulus, Ansible and Openstack. Cumulus offers a free VM that you can run in a KVM hypervisor so I figured I could leverage a virtual infrastructure.
How it works.
- I use Terraform to generate my infrastructure in Openstack.
- I use Ansible to configure all the Cumulus switches.
- I run OSPF within the Openstack networks and BGP externally to connect the “office” to the homelab.
