[ovs-dev] [manager-options 5/5] Add "Manager" and "manager_options" to allow options for OVSDB connections.

Wed Nov 3 17:39:56 UTC 2010


I'm retaining the "managers" column in the Open_vSwitch table for now, but
I hope that applications transition to using "manager_options" eventually
so that we could drop it.

+          If it is specified, this setting must be one of the following strings
+          that describes how Open vSwitch contacts this OVSDB client over the

+

+          <dt><code>in-band</code></dt>
+          <dd>
+            In this mode, this connection's traffic travels over a bridge
+            managed by Open vSwitch.  With this setting, Open vSwitch allows
+            traffic to and from the client regardless of the contents of the
+            OpenFlow flow table.  (Otherwise, Open vSwitch would never be able
+            to connect to the client, because it did not have a flow to enable
+            it.)  This is the most common connection mode because it is not
+            necessary to maintain two independent networks.

+          <dt><code>out-of-band</code></dt>
+          <dd>
+            In this mode, the client's traffic uses a control network separate
+            from that managed by Open vSwitch, that is, Open vSwitch does not
+            use any of its own network devices to communicate with the client.
+            The control network must be configured separately, before or after
+            <code>ovs-vswitchd</code> is started.
