limiting the rate of sending messages from ODL to a switch


Vitaliy Nazaryants <vinazaryants@...>
 

Hello,

  We develop an application based on ODL, and our services use different kinds of probe frames that are sent regularly to switches and received back by the controller. The issue is that under certain conditions the amount of packets outgoing to a switch is so huge that the control plane cannot process them. Is it possible to limit the rate (or somehow spread the load) of packets leaving the controller towards a switch on the openflowjava/openflowplugin level? Thank you in advance.
