Re: [openflowplugin-dev] How can we fix multiple masters issue better for openflowplugin?
Hema Gopalkrishnan <hema.gopalkrishnan@...>
I feel that the openflow plugin may not the place to detect the flow / table conflict. When the flow / table request reaches the openflow plugin, the NSFs / application would have already configured the flows and tables in the Config datastore of md-sal. So, taking any corrective action may be difficult.
We had proposed that conflict detection to be done even before the NSFs /application write to the config datastore. Any thoughts ?

I’m very glad to hear many guys have realized this issue, Prem Sankar created this wiki page https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/OF_pipeline, this is a start point, please add other projects which used openflowplugin so that we can know how urgent this issue is. As Abhijit Kumbhare (openflowplugin project lead) commented, I think openflowplugin is the best place to implement this, I strongly suggest Abhijit Kumbhare can help make this become reality as early as possible, I want to work on it, but I need to hear your ideas if you have better ideas.
Hi Yi / Abhijit,
We had proposed an idea in the ODL India forum on similar lines of Flow Conflict Prevention. Here is the link to the presentation.
We are interested in any discussion on this topic.

This is a good topic - and OpenFlow plugin will likely be a good place for this. Are you planning to work on this? Why don't you join the next OpenFlow plugin meeting (at least for part of the meeting) to discuss more?
As you mention probably some kind of a flow conflict detection and resolution module is needed.
