Join David Bombal for an in-depth discussion in this video SDN controller GUIs, part of Practical Software-Defined Networking: 3 Learning Mininet.
- [Instructor] Now, one thing to point out…is SDN controllers…don't necessarily have the nicest graphical use interfaces.…They tend to be quite basic, and the reason for that…is an SDN controller is a conduit for applications…to get to the network.…So, all the fancy graphical stuff…should be in the applications,…not in the controller.…Different controller GUIs will act differently,…so once again in the HP Controller GUI,…I'll just change the IP address here…to a different controller, so HP Controller.…
The way it displays the topology…is different to Open Daylight…and the information shown…will be different in different controllers…but the idea is the applications…are where the graphical user interfaces are gonna be.…A controller is a conduit or a way…to get to the networking devices…so that you can program them.…It's not where you gonna spend all your time…looking at a graphical user interface.…So, sometimes the graphical interfaces…aren't as nice as you may be used to…in other applications.…
