I am working on OSGI module to forward traffic. I am implementing IListenDataPacket and in receiveDataPacket method I need host information(mac address, ip address, node connectors etc). Currently I am using IfIptoHost and ITopologyManager to get Host information. I am able to get this details only when I do ping / pingall. Otherwise it returns empty result set. Please advise.
Also noticed that, until we do ping/pingall the hosts are not seen on opendaylight console topology diagram. Is this a desired behavior?
Thanks, Darpan Mhatre
