i have create a custom topology in mininet and have install opendaylight.

on my opendaylight, i have install 'old-dlux-all' and 'odl-l2switch-switch-ui'.

the opendaylight will add port-base flows into the switch's flow-table, when i set up a topology. i want to create a dedicated flow using mac address.



S1 & S2 flows:


my question is

1) How to set MAC/IP address flow as default flow instead port-based flow?

2) How the packet reach the destination in a port-based flow topology?

many thanks in advance. :)

Hi , In L2switch you have to modify to change the default with MAC/ IP . refer this link link text . You will get idea which class to modify. Gitclone the L2switch (Version should be matched with whatever mentioned in ODL's Pom file). Add the match and action (you have to add your code.)..Build your L2switch and also ODL . Then launch your ODL install l2switch and connect mininet . The Flows will be reflected in each switch. you can check using sudo ovs-ofctl dump-flows s1 command.

Thanks, -Karthik
