Join David Bombal for an in-depth discussion in this video Mininet linear topology: 200 switches, part of Practical Software-Defined Networking: 3 Learning Mininet.
- [Instructor] If I specify 10 switches,…and pingall, that means I have…10 switches connected back to back.…Now, this is not real world,…this is just for fun…to show you what's possible.…It's very, very easy to create these topologies…in Mininet using a single command.…So, as you can see over here,…here's switch 10 with host 10 connected to it.…Just by running a single command,…I can create these larger topologies,…so let's specify 200 switches.…
That's gonna create 200 switches,…each having one host connected to it,…in other words, we gonna have 200 hosts…and 200 switches.…So, click Reload.…It's busy discovering where all the devices are,…so do a host 1 ping host 200 as an example.…The ping succeeds.…Actually you might be able to hear that my PC…is revving up here…trying to manage this network of so many hosts.…
So, if I zoom in,…you can see right over here…there's a host connected to switch one,…and right over here there's a hots connected to switch 200.…All I wanna show you…is it's possible to very quickly and very easily create…
