Dear All,

New measurement results are available. This time we examined the the most
recent release of OVS, namely version 2.7.0. For the first date, we use
only the kernel driver, but comparing the results to former measurements
conducted via earlier versions, the performance (in some cases) has been
(significantly) improved.
Results were fed back to NFPA website:

Check out the bridge use case with the most diverse traffic trace:
http://nfpa.tmit.bme.hu/index.php?page=compare&vnf_name=ovs|ovs|&vnf_ver=2.7.0|2.5.1|&vnf_func=bridge|bridge|&vnf_driver=kernel|kernel|&vnf_driver_version=4.9.0-2|3.16|&virt=no|no|&cpu_make=intel%20xeon|intel%20xeon|&cpu_model=e5-2620v3|e5-2620v3|&nic_make=intel|intel|&traffic_name=trpr_100000|trpr_100000|&nic_model=xl710|xl710|&bidir=FALSE|FALSE|&type=normal|normal|&prefix=1|1|&timestamp=2017-07-01%2011:32:26.26%2B02|2017-03-11%2023:08:53.05%2B01|&used_cores=0|0|&cfgdNFPA=true|true|&VNF_trace=trpr|trpr|

The same for the l2-switch use case:
http://nfpa.tmit.bme.hu/index.php?page=compare&vnf_name=ovs|ovs|&vnf_ver=2.5.1|2.7.0|&vnf_func=l2-switch|l2-switch|&vnf_driver=kernel|kernel|&vnf_driver_version=3.16|4.9.0-2|&virt=no|no|&cpu_make=intel%20xeon|intel%20xeon|&cpu_model=e5-2620v3|e5-2620v3|&nic_make=intel|intel|&traffic_name=trpr_100000|trpr_100000|&nic_model=xl710|xl710|&bidir=FALSE|FALSE|&type=normal|normal|&prefix=1|1|&timestamp=2017-03-14%2009:43:35.31%2B01|2017-07-01%2012:53:52.19%2B02|&used_cores=0|0|&cfgdNFPA=true|true|&VNF_trace=trpr|trpr|

The same for the l3-router use case:
http://nfpa.tmit.bme.hu/index.php?page=compare&vnf_name=ovs|ovs|&vnf_ver=2.7.0|2.5.1|&vnf_func=l3-router|l3-router|&vnf_driver=kernel|kernel|&vnf_driver_version=4.9.0-2|3.16|&virt=no|no|&cpu_make=intel%20xeon|intel%20xeon|&cpu_model=e5-2620v3|e5-2620v3|&nic_make=intel|intel|&traffic_name=trpr_100000|trpr_100000|&nic_model=xl710|xl710|&bidir=FALSE|FALSE|&type=normal|normal|&prefix=1|1|&timestamp=2017-07-01%2014:15:42.2%2B02|2017-03-14%2011:35:49.44%2B01|&used_cores=0|0|&cfgdNFPA=true|true|&VNF_trace=trpr|trpr|

To not overload this mail, check out the other 3-4 use cases by manually
