Hello Ben! 

Thank you for your response.

So, in my use case, I want to create with mininet a virtual network that will transport a VoIP traffic.  

I'm really newbie in all of this :)

Thank you for your time.

The amount of CPU that OVS uses depends on the forms of the flows in use
in the flow tables and the amount of traffic and its patterns.  The raw
number of flows is not that interesting.  Tell us about your use case
and perhaps we can give some hints.
