Is it possible to decide if OpendayLight will act as a reactive or proactive controller ?

Of course when you add a flow it's proactive but can we also use it as reactive controller ?

Thanks !!!

Best regards,

The question is very vauge. You can use it as a reactive controller.
If you check some flow dumps from mininet you will se the MAC-to-MAC flows that the controller has created.

My question will me be more precise like this : In the reactive mode, is it possible to save manually rules that will be pushed to the switch only when the first packet arrive ? Or is it only a mode inwhich the controller automatically creates the rules according to the flows arriving ?
