  • OS: Linux Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
  • OpenDaylight version: ODL-Lithium-SR2
  • Features installed: odl-restconf-all, odl-l2switch-all

My ODL is installed on a VM, while in another VM there is my Mininet network topology in which each link has its delay. The VMs can communicate via a private network and the communication works fine. The Mininet network topology has loops and I would like to change link weights/costs to force ODL to choose a particular switch in the path from a host to another one.

My question is: can I change link weights? I would like to set link weights equal to their delay (e.g. if a link has a delay of 10ms, link weight would be 10). I suppose there is a module (bundle) in which I can do that, but I don't know what module. Moreover, I downloaded ODL as a tar file from here, do I need source file instead?

Thanks
