Count packets for normal packets and high priority packets in ovs
Assume that the packets sent from h1 to h3 are normal packets and the packets sent from h2 to h3 are high priority packets. We want to count the number of packets for normal and high priority packet in s1.
from mininet.net import Mininet
from mininet.node import RemoteController
from mininet.link import TCLink
from mininet.cli import CLI
net = Mininet(link=TCLink);
# Add hosts and switches
h1 = net.addHost('h1')
h2 = net.addHost('h2')
h3 = net.addHost('h3')
Switch1 = net.addSwitch('s1')
# Add links
linkopts = dict(bw=10)
net.addLink(h1, Switch1, **linkopts )
net.addLink(h2, Switch1, **linkopts )
net.addLink(h3, Switch1, **linkopts )
CLI( net )
# Clean up
We add rules for arp packets, normal packets (h1->h3), and high priority packet (h2->h3). We also use ovs-ofctl dump-flows s1 to see that the number of packets for normal and high priority are initially 0.
H1 sends three ping packets to h3, and h2 sends 5 ping packets to h3. We can see the results from using the command “sh ovs-ofctl dump-flows s1”.
