I had the same question a couple of months back. Eventually I dug it up manually.

As a starting point, I can tell you that to trace commands like “ovs-vsctl add-port”, start looking at ovs/utilities/ovs-vsctl.c. You will have a function called cmd_add_port().

Actually I wanna trace some commands (e.g. ovs-vsctl add-port tap0 tag=100) in ovs to find out the code in OVS source code which executes the command, so do you know what should I do?

Once you do that, just start up OVS and follow through.
