Thank you for your message,
I think I can use only one bridge and the configuration will be:
>> ovs-vsctl add-br br0
>> ovs-vsctl add-port br0 eth0
>> ovs-vsctl add-port br0 eth1

Then, eth0 and 1 are in the same bridge and communicate with each other directly, without path ports,
is this correct?

Best regards,
