Building ODL with minimum installed features

asked 2015-11-05 07:04:44 -0800

anonymous user



I am new to ODL and trying to build a minimal ODL using only a few features. When I downloaded the tarball from the opendaylight website, although it only has a few necessary features installed, it "predicts" the full capacity of the application, thus providing that much space in advance. Am I correct? I am using a ubuntu VM with one VCPU and 1GB RAM. I need the build to be as compact as possible.

How do I do this?

If you already have the tarball, it means you are trying to run and not build. It again depends on what features are loaded by default. If you want to load lesser features, you can change the same also.

What do you intend to do? That will clarify further,, however, I always have a minimum of 2 GB RAM when I run the distribution or build any project.

I am trying to get either the Openflow working with OvS or get the NETCONF working. I need either of these two features with their dependencies built into the ODL. I am using a AWS free VM which is unfortunately only 1G. Does that clarify a little better?

Unzip the tarball and start opendaylight. To install the minimum components necessary to use the REST API with OVS, just type the following command at the karaf prompt:
