I'm using Helium SR2 with Mininet 2.2 and OpenFlow13. So my question is, if it is possible to add QOS in the network, for example a minimum bandwidth for a given flow. I'm planning on adding such flows and meter via northbound REST API of ODL.

Is it possible ?

Also is there any kind of documentation for the Meter fields besides OpenFlow13 specification ? For example, what is the meaning of 'dscp-remark-burst-size' or 'dscp-remark-rate' fields ?

Regards, Nuno B.

1) You can use REST API for retrieving information about the interfaces (you might have to process it in order to obtain the information you want) 2) You can set using the tc command when you launch the topology. For QoS you can use meters with CpQD's ofsoftswitch13 or use queues with openvswitch. 3) Using iperf is a good way to test it.
