Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR MANAGING SWITCH
Abstract:
Provided is a method for managing a switch, comprising: a controller sending a grouping instruction message to a switch, wherein the grouping instruction message is used to instruct the switch to perform grouping of at least one flow table; and the controller determining a flow table group to be bound, and sending a flow table group binding message to the switch, wherein the flow table group binding message carries identification information of the flow table group to be bound, and is used to establish a binding relationship between the controller and the flow table group to be bound, such that the controller manages the flow table group to be bound. As a result, multiple controllers can separately establish a binding relationship with each flow table group in the switch, so that the multiple controllers can balance multiple service functions of the switch, resolving a bottleneck of the controllers due to centralized deployment of network functions, and realize cooperative control over the switch.
