[A5500-EI] gets Openflow 1.3.1 support with firmware release R2221 :-)

=> https://h10145.www1.hp.com/downloads/SoftwareReleases.aspx?ProductNumber=JD375A

 

 

Thank you, HP!

 

P.S. 0: finally some hardware to start playing with openflow

P.S. 1: dreaming of replacing LACP with per packet round robin frame scheduling with guaranteed in order delivery based upon openflow.

P.S. 2: I need an openflow controller...

Hello,

that is great news, next stop 5800. Have you found any documentation on OpenFlow with comware, what

they support to match in hardware and software and so on? I looked at the release notes and they just mention

that they support it, the documentation for the switch was not updated and I don't find any documentation on

this what so ever.

 

Cheers,

       Thomas

Re: [A5500-EI] gets Openflow 1.3.1 support with firmware release R2221 :-)

reading the software feature notes, it says "openflow 1.3.1", but later within the tables there are a lot of "N/A" or "NOT SUPPORTED" - well it seems it´s kind of "basic?" openflow for playing - to get in touch with openflow...

Perhaps this will change in future releases? Perhaps some other forum member knows more?

 

But hey, openflow on Comware 5 - that´s simply nice...

 

Talking about manuals, I can only find some chinese hints on H3C´s homepage: http://www.h3c.com.cn/search/basesearch.aspx?q0=openflow&Submit=# but no practical guides.

unfortunatly:

[...]

 

7. The port type of openflow can’t support the link-aggregation.

8. openflow can’t support IRF.

[...]

 

But it's a great beginning and hopefully it will be fixed in the next release.
