[ovs-dev] Question on ovsdb_idl_omit_alert()

Hi Ben,

ovn-controller.c has the below code here [1]

ovsdb_idl_omit_alert(ovnsb_idl_loop.idl, &sbrec_chassis_col_nb_cfg);

>From what I understand from this comment [2], when ovn-controller
updates this column, SB ovsdb-server shouldn't send the
update2/update3 message back to the ovn-controller and to all the
other ovn-controllers right ?

But I don't see it working as expected. I can see that ovsdb-server
sends the update2/update3 message to all the connected clients.

Is this a bug ? Or is my understanding wrong ?
