[ovs-dev] [PATCH ovn] ofctrl.c: Update installed OVS flow cookie when lflow is changed.

Han Zhou hzhou at ovn.org
Sun Jan 12 22:10:49 UTC 2020


When an old lflow is replaced by a new lflow, if the OVS flows
translated by the old and new lflows have same match, ofctrl will
update existing OVS flow instead of deleting and adding a new one.

However, when updating the existing flows, the cookie was not updated
by current implementation, which results in discrepency between lflows
and OVS flows, making debugging difficult and confuses tools such as
ovn-trace. This patch fixes it.

Note: since command OFPFC_MODIFY_STRICT in FLOW_MOD message doesn't
support updating flow cookie after OpenFlow 1.1, this patch changes
to use OFPFC_ADD command, which effectively modifies existing flow
if a match is found.
