It makes no difference whether to launch Floodlight before or after bringing up Pica8 switch. In this document, we start Floodlight after bringing up Pica8 switch.


Figure 10 – Start Floodlight  

The following figure shows the connection between Pica8 switch and Floodlight.

Figure 11 – Start Floodlight

We can also use Wireshark to capture the traffic between Pica8 switch and Floodlight as shown below:

Figure 12 – Wireshark Captures

We can also use the following command to show the connection status:

  • ovs-vsctl  show

 Figure 13 – Show OVS Connection Status

 We can now use the following command to verify that all of the physical ports are connected:

  • ovs-ofctl show br0

At this moment, there are no flows defined:

  • ovs-ofctl dump-flows br0
