I am seeing this wierd behavior in our production environment. Right now, we are seeing an issue where launching of an instance is failing since the compute node and neutron is not cleaning up the qbr or qvo it had created even after we try to terminate the failed instance. Here are the logs from nova-conductor:-

This qvo still exists on the compute node:-
[root@compute-42 rahul]# ifconfig | grep qvo3e44fa11-05
qvo3e44fa11-05: flags=4419<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,PROMISC,MULTICAST> mtu 9000 <----- this still exists
[root@compute-42 rahul]# ifconfig | grep qvo | wc -l
392 <------------------------ there are about 350+ such entries
[root@compute-42 rahul]# ifconfig | grep tap | wc -l
8 <----------------------- the compute is running only 8 instances, still more than 350+ entries for qvo-XX alone
[root@compute-42 rahul]#

I am running Kilo release and RHEL 7 Openstack rpms.

Shouldn't the qvo and qvb be deleted if creation of instance has failed?
