Honeycomb infrastructure in ODL, will help to scale up the ODL. This proposal will analyze and design the integration of openVswitch(OVS) in a Honeycomb infrastructure and the different module interactions involved. In the current ODL design, the whole control logic resides in the Net-virt layer. Whenever the flow miss scenario happens in a compute node, the packets will be sent to ODL and it programs the manipulated rules in OVS.

The proposal will offload the dynamic learning logic like ARP (IPV4) and neighbor solicitation (IPV6) to the honeycomb agent. The locally intelligent nodes will dynamically program the flows without the help of ODL controller.

A use case analysis of porting the honeycomb agent infrastructure to a Linux based switch (which runs HWVTEP) will also be presented.
