OPNFV packages the forked OVS at https://github.com/yyang13/ovs_nsh_patches, but an
old version.If you plan to use OVS 2.6.1, the forked OVS at above github has been upgraded
to OVS 2.6.1, and it works with ODL and ONSO controller.

Yi Yang in CC is the maintainer of that forked OVS repository and he is also working closely with
other community folks on upstreaming NSH patch to OVS covering control plane, in-kernel data plane
and DPDK_netdev data plane, but the eventually upstreamed code might be different from the one
in this github repository.

Hi Shu,
Thank you so much for the info.

Hi Sam,

OpenNFV maintains a version of OVS with NSH support, which is not supported by upstream OVS.
Please refer to OpenNFV document:

Thank you, Ben.
Let me explain a little bit why I'm going to try NSH based on Openvswitch.
Because I saw a slides "SFC with NSH and OVS"( here is the link http://openvswitch.org/support/ovscon2015/16/1040-elzur.pdf ), it looks like the guy used openvswitch as a NSH classifier and a NSH forwarder already.

Open vSwitch does not support NSH.

I don't know about unofficial versions.  Perhaps someone will speak up.
