This post turned out to be much longer than I planned. So I decided to split it into two posts.
This part covers:
- Simple scenario walkthrough (connecting a virtual machine through ovs bridge to the internet)
- Basic commands ( add/delete bridge, add/delete ports, show configuration, etc)
The second part covers:
- Components (ovsdb-server, ovs-vswitch, ovs kernel module)
- Utilities (ovs-vsctl, ovs-ofctl, ovs-appctl, etc)
- Modes (normal & flow)
