Join David Bombal for an in-depth discussion in this video How many tables on the switch?, part of Practical Software-Defined Networking: 5 OpenFlow Physical Switches.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'm gonna show you…how to write flow entries to multiple tables…and work out how many tables are available on a switch,…and show you what happens when you try and write…a flow entry into a table that doesn't exist.…In this example, I've got a Zodiac FX…connected to an HPE VAN SDN Controller.…At the moment, you can see that the Zodiac FX is connected.…If I click on Summary, you can see the manufacturer,…and the hardware version.…On the actual switch, typing help shows me…the various commands available and different modes.…
I'm going to go to OpenFlow mode or context,…and type show status.…At the moment, you can see that the Zodiac FX is connected…to a controller…using OpenFlow 1.3…and it has a single table with a single flow…currently configured.…Help, once again, shows me that I can use…the show flows command.…And I'll be able to see the flows on the switch.…At the moment, there is a single flow, Flow one,…with an instruction to send the traffic to the controller.…
The hard timeout is zero, and the idle timeout is zero.…
