PicOS can run in two different modes:
- L2/L3 Mode
- OVS Mode
In the L2/L3 (Layer 2 / Layer 3) mode, PicOS can run switching and routing protocols, as well as OpenFlow applications. In this mode, L2/L3 daemons are running, but OVS can also be activated if CrossFlow is enabled.
In the OVS (Open vSwitch) mode, PicOS is optimized for OpenFlow applications. In this mode, L2/L3 daemons are not running, and the system is fully dedicated to OpenFlow and OVS.
