Weekly report, 07/04/2014




I spent a lot of my time this week getting my project environment set up and familiarising myself with Ryu and Openvswitch. I've started with a very basic topology to work through, and so far I successfully have flows being learnt between a series of kvm hosts and multiple connected virtual switches. Once I'm comfortable enough with the environment, my goal is to work towards implementing a basic virtual network which will allow DHCP leases to be issued to hosts from an out-of-band DHCP server through the Ryu controller. This step should represent the first milestone of my project as I work towards distributing some of the existing functionality of a BRAS out to multiple controllers and switches.
