Hi Ben,

Thanks for your reply. I am planning to use OVS to inform the controller
about multiple flow support. Since any of the OVS versions are not
supporting Multiple flow tables support, could you please clarify my
doubts. Also, want to know if you share the details how OVS is going to
support multiple flow tables then it would be great for me to do my
design/coding.


1] Want to know the brief details of how OVS would support Multiple Flow
table ?



2] What are the API’s provided by OVS which can be used to inform OVS about
switch capabilities ?



3] Does currently OVS supports open-flow FEATURE_REQUEST/REPLY messages and
with what parameters ?



4] OVS 2.4 early documentation for multiple flow table support ?


Thanks,

Kals.
