The ovs-testcontroller is, of course, not heavyweight. But in our
scenario I am not able to rely on that. Since we want to avoid
designate one particular node as a controller or a manager, I'm having
all the OVS instances listen to ptcp:6634. Then I push rules to them
either through ovs-ofctl or the test controller (from any external
orchestration system or from another active node). On restart of any
one OVS, the rules are not pushed. Even if I make it a periodic
attempt to push rules, there will be some downtime, which I'd ideally
like to avoid.
