Title: A METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MODIFYING FORWARDING STATES IN A NETWORK DEVICE OF A SOFTWARE DEFINED NETWORK
Abstract:
A method in a network controller coupled to a network device of a software defined network (SDN), of modifying forwarding table entries of the network device is described. The method includes constructing a first message including a flow profile associated with a plurality of flows and an install profile command, where the flow profile includes a flow profile identifier, and a set of default parameter values that are common for the plurality of flows. The method continues with causing the network device to install the flow profile associated with the plurality of flows.
