No Flows appear in OpenDaylight Node Tab

Components used: OpenvSwitch 2.6.2 / OpenDaylight karaf-0.6.1-Carbon

I'm making my first steps with open vSwitch/OpenDaylight, so far so good, I can play around with flow creation and effects, both using 'ovs-ofctl add-flow' and curl/restconf. The effects act as predictable. But I can't manage to have the created flows appear in the Nodes/Statistics/Flows Tab. The main flows page stays blank, and if I tick 'show all tables' I just get a big sheet filled with zeros, with a few numers here and there without any label.

It happens both with OpenDaylight 0.4 Beryllium and with 0.6.1 Carbon.

Here is the features I did install:

feature:install odl-restconf odl-l2switch-switch odl-mdsal-apidocs \ odl-dlux-core odl-dluxapps-nodes odl-dluxapps-topology odl-dluxapps-yangui \ odl-dluxapps-yangvisualizer odl-dluxapps-yangman

I'm new to SDN, and didn't find an answer googling around. Does anybody have an idea what is wrong in my setup ? Am I missing some features ? Thanks :-)

I think you need plugins to "learn" the topology from the packets being sent across the network. You seem to have most of the main plugins, but maybe you could try installing odl-l2switch-all (iirc) instead of only installing odl-l2switch-switch. l2switch does a lot of the basic learning.

I used l2switch successfully with Carbon

Install odl-l2switch-all. ( as suggested by @VincentJahjah )
