Looking for Comware OpenFlow documentation.

Hello,

the A5500 Comware switch got OpenFlow support. However I can't find any documentation on the topic. I'm looking for documentation that describes how to configure it and which fields can be matched in hardware, how many flows can be installed in hardware and if it supports IPv6. Anyone?

 

Cheers,

        Thomas

There´s an openflow configuration guide for 5900 series, but no information about hardware support of openflow.

Hi Thomas,

 

Sorry for the delay.  Here's some info regarding your question:

 

Number of flows for 5500 is 3k for 24-port and 6k for 48-port.  L2/L3 table can also be used as the extension. It is 32k MAC and 8k or 16k ARP. 

 

If your question is answered please close this thread, otherwise let us know and we will be glad to assist you further.

 

Thanks,

Leo

Is this for A5500-EI or A5500-Hi?
