Metering Function for OpenVSwitch 2.8.1



Add a meter (3Mbps) when packets are coming from port 1 to port.


Something strange. After setting, there are checksum errors for packets in h2. So I use iftop (sudo apt-get install iftop) to measure the throughput.

We are sending 5Mbps traffic to h2. Then we can get around 2.84Mbps at h2.
