NITLab team released a ruby gem that extends the OMF6 framework for OpenFlow support.

This release includes OMF6 Resource Controllers (RCs) related to the OpenFlow technology.

The OMF6 framework considers everything (hardware, software, etc) as a separate resource.
This version includes the RCs of the Stanford software tools, named FlowVisor and OpenvSwitch.

  • FlowVisor creates OpenFlow Slices (slicing the flow space into separate pieces), so the corresponding RC is the OpenFlow_Slice_Factory.
  • OpenvSwitch creates Virtual OpenFlow Switches on top of a Linux machine using the machine's interfaces, so the corresponding RC is the Virtual_OpenFlow_Switch_Factory.
