  I am using Mininet with OVS and POX controller. When i give link s1 s2
down in Mininet, how the switches s1 and s2 will come to know about the
failure in OVS part? Is it only through netdev_get_carrier() ?
    If so ,only periodically will the switch check it? or is there any
other way by which the switch knows about the failure immediatle? Please

Thanks and Regards,
Padma V
