What do You mean by monitor? If You look at the flows via rest api You get some amount of data (e.g. how many packets/bytes per flow are transferred). Also Open vSwitch itself can do netflow/sflow/ipfix.

Beside using rest api I was in search of a tool more advanced like sflow (didn't know that before the post).Thank you for your answer

AFAIK sFlow can be used with openvswitch to monitor traffic.
