Title: TRAFFIC FORWARDING CONTROL METHOD, APPARATUS, AND SOFTWARE DEFINED NETWORKING CONTROLLER AND COMPUTER STORAGE MEDIUM
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to a traffic forwarding control method, an apparatus, and a software defined networking controller and a computer storage medium. The method comprises: acquiring VLAN configuration information of communication ports of an OpenFlow forwarding device, and then converting all information of VLANs having the same communication port joining method to corresponding common VLAN information and generating the same in a group table. In the present disclosure, one group table corresponds to all VLANs having the same communication port joining method, rather than one group table corresponding to one VLAN. As a result, for one communication port, the number of group tables required is equal to the number of VLAN joining methods thereof. Thus, the present disclosure can greatly reduce the amount of group tables generated and sent by a software defined networking controller, and can also reduce group table resources consumed by an OpenFlow forwarding device, improving resource utilization.
