Useful mininet setups

Useful mininet setups
Mininet is a network emulation platform that is very useful to test SDN applications that you build. It can support different types of topologies. Here we showcase three popular configurations that will be helpful for testing. 1. Single switch Following command spawns a single switch with 3 hosts attached to it. $ sudo mn --arp --topo single,3 --mac --switch ovsk --controller remote In the above command, there are some important keywords worth paying attention to: –mac: Auto set MAC addresses–arp: Populate static ARP entries of each host in each other–switch: ovsk refers to kernel mode OVS–controller: remote controller can take IP address and port number as options You can now perform ping between hosts h1 and h2 using command h1 ping h2. 2. Following command spawns two switches connected to each other with a link and has one host on each switch. $ sudo mn --topo linear --switch ovsk --controller remote 3. Following command spawns a switch that has 3 servers and 1 client connected to it.

OpenDaylight Application Developers' Tutorial This tutorial is intended for developers new to SDN application development with OpenDaylight. We have come a long way from the earlier version of this tutorial to focus on MD-SAL, and Karaf in this tutorial. While OpenDaylight is not simply an OpenFlow controller, OpenFlow continues to be a popular south-bound and we use this in this tutorial to introduce the platform. An introductory presentation is available at slideshare. What is proof of concept (POC)? - Definition from WhatIs.com Proof of concept (POC) is documented evidence that a potential product or service can be successful.

SDN Test Suite – Methodology SDN Test Suite – Methodology Typical SDN-based Network Virtualization The architecture rolled out can be one of the following: Pure-overlay: Programmable virtual dataplane elements (vDP) are inserted into edge servers and controlled by the controller cluster. They form overlay networks using tunnels that are routed over the legacy network fabric. The gateway can be physical or virtual, and participates in the overlay networking. University of Luxembourg - Daylight Project One of the great things about open source projects is that they provide a solid, easily available, and generally well documented basis for university research. This generally gives researchers the ability to concentrate just on the algorithms and instrumentation which they are interested in, without having to completely develop a software suite for the subject area they are studying. In the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg, researchers are using OpenDaylight as basis for addressing specific aspects in the context of the ongoing Cognitive Software Defined Networks (CoSDN) project. CoSDN seeks to combine the efficiency of SDN with cognitive learning algorithms and enhanced protocols to automatise SDN systems. To this aim, the team under the supervision of Prof.

What is software-defined networking (SDN)? - Definition from WhatIs.com Software-defined networking (SDN) is an umbrella term encompassing several kinds of network technology aimed at making the network as agile and flexible as the virtualized server and storage infrastructure of the modern data center. The goal of SDN is to allow network engineers and administrators to respond quickly to changing business requirements. In a software-defined network, a network administrator can shape traffic from a centralized control console without having to touch individual switches, and can deliver services to wherever they are needed in the network, without regard to what specific devices a server or other hardware components are connected to. The key technologies for SDN implementation are functional separation, network virtualization and automation through programmability.

Guidance for Proof of Concept Pilot (PDF Version Available) Recommended Practice: Developing and Implementing an Enterprise-wide ElectronicRecords Management (ERM) Proof of Concept Pilot A proof of concept pilot project is an opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of Electronic Records Management (ERM) software on a small area and in a controlled manner. A pilot project is an excellent risk mitigation strategy for an agency planning to implement a ERM system. It can also serve to inform or resolve an alternatives analysis for an agency during the investment planning phase.

Software Defined Networking course GA Tech About the Course This course introduces software defined networking, an emerging paradigm in computer networking that allows a logically centralized software program to control the behavior of an entire network. Separating a network's control logic from the underlying physical routers and switches that forward traffic allows network operators to write high-level control programs that specify the behavior of an entire network, in contrast to conventional networks, whereby network operators must codify functionality in terms of low-level device configuration.

Spanning Tree and OpenFlow Questions I often get asked include: Can you run Spanning Tree and OpenFlow together?What happens when Spanning Tree blocks a port? What will OpenFlow do?Will not having redundant links in an OpenFlow network result in loops?
