How to get switch's flow table capacity?

I checked the data at : http://localhost:8080/controller/nb/v2/switchmanager/default/nodes , there is a field named "capabilities" but it is not the flow table capacity of the node.

Thanks for your help.

Openflow 1.3 provides max_entries field in Table Features message as an indicator of a table's capacity. However, as per Helium Release Plan it isn't supported in ODL either.

TTP [Table Type Patterns] addresses this and is supported in ODL as of Helium but not sure if there is any switch available today that has support for it.
