Cloned from launchpad blueprint https://blueprints.launchpad.net/neutron/+spec/vsctl-to-ovsdb.
Neutron's ovs_lib makes heavy use of executing ovs-vsctl, even parsing "user-readable" output from it. Either directly sending OVSDB commands or using Open vSwitch's existing python API should be more flexible and should have much better performance.
Specification URL (additional information):
This RFE was automatically opened to track status of upstream development. At this point we see no reason to keep track of this in Red Hat bugzilla, thus closing it.
