[ovs-discuss] disable-megaflows - OVS

Hello All,

Can someone tell me the difference between :

*ovs-appctl upcall/disable-megaflows*


*ovs-vsctl --no-wait set Open_vSwitch . other_config:max-idle* option

I read that max-idle option takes a minimum value of 500ms. But i was able
to pass a value of 1ms.

i.e, ovs-vsctl --no-wait set Open_vSwitch . other_config:max-idle=1.

And strangely, i did notice a difference in performance indicating that the
flows were indeed collected within 1ms.. Has someone else notice this

Best Regards
Advith Nagappa
