OpenFlow Experimentation report added

2011/07/29 : We tried to make Arista as OpenFlow switch by using Open vSwitch

Here is an experiment to implement OpenFlow functionality to Arista box by using Open vSwitch running userspace mode. I believe the accomplished OpenFlow implementation will come out soon from Arista, but not yet, in July 2011. So I just want to build the OpenFlow capable environment for my lab work.


note : This implementation does not use the hardware switching feature, then the performance is so poor. It is just a experimental result until full-featured OpenFlow implementation will be released. Anyway, it makes 48 ports OpenFlow switch. Limited performance does not matter for me!
