Hi all,

Could anyone help to point out what does below output represents? Is there
any document help to refer? My environment is based on OpenStack neutron.

1) Does the 'actions=NORMAL' in ovs-ofctl dump-flows makes ovs-dpctl
dump-flows output looks like a learning switch?
2) 'arp(sip=,tip=' means source_ip equals to
'', dst_ip equals to '' as well, does it make sense
for ARP request?

# ovs-ofctl dump-flows br-int
