Hi All,

I have a query related to max number of flows added using ovs-ofctl on a single ovs bridge. We are trying to find the max limit of ovs flows.

When we add the flows using ovs-ofctl, we are able to add 2000 flows from the ovs clis. But when we send the traffic for 2K flows, only ~1250 flows gets added but still we receive the packet outs for 2K flows.

Is there any hard limit on number of flows been added at dpif linux class?
