[ovs-dev] Actions in OVS

I am trying to determine how actions are stored and applied in OVS for each
flow. When I use the ovs-ofctl add-flow command (specifying only the source
& destination IP and protocol with actions=output:1), I see that 8
 "ofpact" structures are created inside the ofproto_add_flow function.
The first of these holds the action I specify in the command, but what is
the significance of the remaining actions?
