Join David Bombal for an in-depth discussion in this video Link down, link up, part of Practical Software-Defined Networking: 3 Learning Mininet.
- [Instructor] So I'll connect to an HP controller.…At the moment there are no devices.…So let's exit Mininet…and specify this new controller, which is 31.…And I'll do a pingall between the PCs.…In the topology,…I can now see the two hosts…and I can see their MAC addresses.…Notice the MAC addresses here…have been dynamically allocated.…
I'll show you in a moment…how to use simple to read MAC addresses.…So let's shut the link down.…So firstly, h1 ping h2.…That succeeds.…Link s1 h1 down.…Notice the device has gone gray…and the link has gone to a dotted link…and then it's been removed,…because that PC's no longer connected to the network.…So host one cannot ping host two.…
I'll bring the link up again…and send some traffic.…Pings succeed,…and notice now the device has been discovered…and is connected back on port one.…So this is a nice way to test…whether STN applications can manage network failures…in a topology.…
