The following picture shows the test topology which is similar to the topology in the first two documents of the Open SDN Starter Kit series, even though the IP addresses are different.
Figure 5 – Test Topology
In this document, the systems depicted in the above diagram include:
- A Pica8 switch which is P-3295
- 5 Linux PCs running Ubuntu 11.10
- The one, connected to the P-3295 management port (RJ45) and console port (RJ45F), is referred as the controller PC. The Floodlight controller will be running on this PC.
- The other four PCs are connected to physical port 1 to 4 and serve as a data terminal to verify the flow.
