Hi, I am looking for SFC usecase across multiple Service Functions. I deployed Openstack Controller running Opendaylight Lithium and Compute Node. I enalbled SFC related features in karaf console. I am able to browse Opendaylight SFC pages through the URL: http://localhost:8181/sfc/index.html I am able to launch 2 service function VM's (Firewall and Loadbalancer) in the compute node and able to get IPaddresses to those VM's through ODL. Now, I want to deploy a Service Function Chain consisting of the created VM's. I searched for the SFC demo usecase and found several videos. But, I am not able to relate those videos to my requirement. Can anyone point me to the demo usecase or sequence of configuration steps in Opendaylight SFC pages? And, one more doubt I have is that can we deploy SFC usecase in Opendaylight with out NSH support in OVS?

Regards, Srikanth.

If you haven't already, I recommend running through this demonstration from Ericsson, get it running and then tailor it to the use case. That is the only way I could get SFC to work in a virtual environment.

Thanks for the reference. But, it is using some external scripts like vagrant...etc. I have two service VM's running. And, ODL Lithium also installed on Openstack Controller and running. I am looking for a tutorial which talks about the SFC configuration fields like management IP...etc.

Opendaylight Dlux SFC pages have lot of attribute fields, which are confusing sometimes. I am looking for user guide which talks about the attribute fields. I mean what values can be given for those attributes.
