Description

I'm constantly confused by this, and I'm not the only one. A diagram illustrated with routing and filtering rules would go a long way towards clearing things up. I'll draw the picture, if someone else fills in the relevant info here.

If you are willing to have the diagram in git puppet.git (together with the hiera file hieradata/common/network.yaml to keep config and doc in sync), there is a neat Graphviz like python module that let one programmatically generate network diagrams: http://blockdiag.com/en/nwdiag/nwdiag-examples.html

It has several other modules. I have used for Zuul documentation http://docs.openstack.org/infra/zuul/gating.html and we adopted it to describe the scap3 architecture https://doc.wikimedia.org/mw-tools-scap/scap3/architecture.html

Mark took time to explain at length the various network and wrote a nice summary on T140257#2597938
