[ovs-discuss] Rate limiting on patch ports

Hi,
I connected br0 and br1 using a patch port. I tried to limit the rate on
the link between br0 and br1 using this guide:
http://openvswitch.org/support/config-cookbooks/qos-rate-limiting/

While its working well with normal ports it doesn't seem to have any
impact on patch ports. Is that a bug or is it not possible to limit the
rate of patch ports?

I'd like to implement an experimental load balancer using openflow that
uses multiple paths in a switched network. If i can't make any
constraints on the link rate between switches that would be quite
pointless ...

Any suggestions how to achieve that?
